After a number of teasers thanks to the listings over in Japan, Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine has finally confirmed that a new television anime for the Hell Girl (a.k.a. Jigoku Shoujo) franchise will arrive.
The project has already been green-lit for production, and it even has a working title released. The new season will be called Jigoku Shoujo Yoi no Togi. One point of concern from someone who has already seen the previous anime seasons.
