The Price of Revenge: A Lesson from Hell Girl

Are you ready for a wild ride of anime, morality, and the dangers of revenge? Well, buckle up because we’re diving into the dark and twisted world of Hell Girl! For those of you who may not be familiar, Hell Girl is an anime series about a girl named Ai Enma who is able to send people to hell through a cursed website. But before you start typing up your hit list of enemies, let me remind you of one of her infamous lines: “When one person is cursed, two graves are dug.” Translation? If you’re sending someone to hell, you better be prepared to join them.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “But I have a really good reason for wanting to send my boss/ex/annoying neighbor to hell!” But here’s the thing, in the world of Hell Girl, revenge comes at a steep price. And it’s not just the physical consequences of sending someone to hell, it’s the emotional ones as well. You see, cultivating hate or pursuing emotional revenge, even when it’s “justified,” will inevitably sully you. It may give you what you want at that moment, but ultimately, it means that your “enemy” has not only hurt you, but they’ve also caused you to taint yourself, to debase yourself, and to turn yourself into a being that is both more damaged and less noble than what you were before.
So, what’s the solution? It’s simple, folks. Just turn away and live your life. If the wronging was so bad that it warrants a legal follow-up, by all means, do it. Let the system handle that jerk. But try your best to never dwell on negative feelings towards others. Even if you truly can’t forgive someone, it’s still better to simply cut all ties with them and leave them behind than to further diminish your own self by wallowing or even indulging in anger and hate.
And that, my friends, is what I consider “forgiveness.” It’s when you can remember a misdeed without letting yourself be driven by resentment, anger, or hate. So, the next time you’re tempted to sign a contract with Hell Girl, just remember, revenge may be sweet, but it’s also a one-way ticket to hell. And who wants to spend eternity with their enemies? Not me, that’s for sure. So, let’s all make a pact to put down the pitchforks and live our lives in peace, shall we?
