Today's Work: I finally got a few things finished, maybe. Probably. Hopefully.
Got a bit of evening ahead of me, fortunately. As I intended, I started watching Hell Girl last night. It's pretty much the same story as the manga, for now, but a bit more detailed. There's more depth to the characters, particularly Ai's partners, and that's about what I expected from the author's notes in the manga as well as the bonus stories and 4-koma that focused on the other characters. No idea what to expect in terms of plot, if any (considering that it's really a series of vignettes at heart, tied together by the theme of what the Hell Girl represents), but considering that there are at least three seasons, that's plenty of time for them to develop main characters without skimping on the per-episode plots. I expect both aspects to become more prominent now that the overall theme has been introduced and drawn out over the course of an episode. No more need for the same sort of buildup after that. But there are other things I should probably do before I settle in for more anime.
