An OAV full of poetry and nostalgia. Well designed characters, a carefully crafted production that smartly combines 2D and 3D, and a screenplay which is perfectly adapted to the specific format. Pale Cocoon is a beautiful series by Studio Rikka.

Van, a flegmatic gun hero, wanders from town to town in search of the man who murdered his wife on their wedding day. Vengeance is the only goal that drives him. He makes friends with Wendi Garrett, a young girl who’s searching for her brother… Steampunk western by Goro Taniguchi (s-CRY-ed, Planetes, Infinite Ryvius), in which the main character was inspired by Clint Eastwood in the Leone films. In spite of this amoral antihero, the series remains very accessible, with the violence not to graphic and thoroughly toned down by a large amount of humour.

According to an urban legend, there is a mysterious website that punishes its visitors. Is it merely a myth? The girl from hell will fill in the contract after confirmation of your request, on the condition that you are prepared to pay a price. And the only question you should ask yourself is this: do you prefer Hell above Earth, where you’ll sell your soul to the devil?? Fascinating series of an overwhelming beauty, which gradually immerses you in pure horror. Jigoku Shoujo is the image of the girl that grants all requests : apparently innocent, she’ll only reveal her dark side after you’ve fallen under her influence.
