A girl with two hearts in one body that you encounter in Hell. She is a rival aiming for Heaven like yourself, but has a cheerful and determined attitude, and will even help you out from time to time. She was touched by the circumstances and motivations of her partner, the White Poison Maiden, and offered to help with the purification of Hell. She is kind-hearted and somewhat of a simpleton.

White Poison Maiden (voiced by Mina Takagawa)

Shoujo Jigoku no Doku Musume

A Poison Maiden who shares a body with the Girl in Black. She adores the Girl in Black and refers to her as “My Lady,” helping her to achieve her goal of reaching Heaven. Since the Girl in Black has a naive personality, the White Poison Maiden’s behavior often comes off guardian-like. She is calm and expressionless, and therefore not very sociable.

■ Stickers

In Hell, “Higan Radio” will give you special stickers for each girl’s Hell that you successfully purify. It was announced that collecting five of these stickers, which are very valuable in this world, will allow you to go to Heaven. Each time you complete the purification of a girl’s Hell, a delivery person show up with a sticker.
