The first Jigoku Shoujo DVD came out earlier this week, and one of the special features was the PV for the ending song 「かりぬい」 (Karinui) by Noto Mamiko. The full song is quite haunting, even more so than the TV sized version. The PV makes it even creepier because of the Ai doll (those red eyes…). This is definitely worth a watch if you’re a fan of the series.
Thanks to Patrik for the PV.

    i saw PV and that doll is pretty creepy looking, espcially how its blindfolded and covered up. i would want to walking into a room with that in it. O_o

    Woah…That’s pretty cool looking.

    This PV was better than I was hoping for, actually – the music’s lovely, and the doll that represents Enma Ai.. were her eyes glowing in that last close-in, or was it just the angle that caused them to suddenly catch the light? That was a little creepy, but cool looking like DK1 noted. One of the better PV’s I’ve seen, though I wish it’d been subbed when I watched it, if only so I could follow some of the lyrics.

    One more note – is the removal of Enma Ai’s blindfold supposed to suggest how she’s developed a hate for her duties as the Jigoku Shoujo, but is unable to escape the trap her life’s become? Which may be, of course, one reason that she’s developed a link to Tsugumi? I assume that Mamiko Noto’s lying dead as a stone at the end there, after the Enma-doll vanished.

    *Wonders where the Ai doll came from*
    It seems like a lovely PV. I’ll see if I can get one of my friends to download it for me…

    Omoide o tsunde kimasho Hana o tsunde kimasho
    Mune no yami ni ichirin sashi kazaru no

    Itsu datte ikidomari de Kesshite nigerarenai
    Sora no tori e kanashimi nose tobasu no

    Koko wa karinui
    Watashi o shibaru eien
    Iki mo kaeri mo sugite yuku wa yume

    Hi ga kurete kage o kakusu Hitori nakitaku naru
    Kuroku nijimu hitomi no naka kowakute

    Sukoshi dake yorimichishite naita…

    Koko wa karinui

    Basting
    Vocals: Noto Mamiko
    Lyrics: Mieno Hitomi
    Composition: Nishida Masara
    Arrangement: Nishida Masara

    Let’s pick memories; let’s pick flowers
    I’ll raise a ring to the darkness in my chest and decorate it

    At the dead end all the time
    I can never escape
    I’ll let my sorrow ride on the birds in the sky and fly

    This place is the basting
    The eternity that binds me
    Whose going and returning passes by me is a dream

    The sun sets and hides the shadows; alone, I feel like crying
    The centers of my eyes that stain black will grow afraid

    This is place is the basting
    The eternity that knitted the world
    Whose going and returning follows is the wind

    I strayed away for a moment and wept…

    This place is the basting
    The eternity that binds me
    Whose going and returning passes by me is a dream

    Some things should NEVER be done in Live-Action. It’s just … “not right”.

    I love these lyrics and I learned a new word “basting!” Fantastic!

    Hmm… couldn’t that also be translated as ‘binding’? Karanui, that is?
