If you are an anime fan then you are in a treat cause this Winter season is jam-packed with highly anticipated new anime like Hell’s Paradise, Oshi no Ko and Dead Mount Death Play and fan-favourite titles like Demon Slayer Season 3 and DR Stone Season 3 returning.
Now with so many big hitters airing at the same, it will become quite difficult for anyone to keep track of each of them, so that’s why we have created this Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku Release Schedule which will help you keep up with the release dates of each of episodes, let you know the air time and answer some of the frequently asked questions about the series.
With that being said, let’s start this topic by looking at what Hell’s Paradise is about.
Hell’s Paradise also known as Jigokuraku in Japanese is an upcoming dar-shounen anime based on the manga created by Yuji Kaku. The series began serialization on Shuiesha’s ShonenJump+ website in January 2018 and ended on January 2021 spanning over 13 volumes.
The anime adaption of the manga by powerhouse Studio MAPPA was announced in January 2021 with Kaori Makita as the series director, Akira Kindaichi as the scriptwriter, Koji Hisaki as the character designer, and Yoshiaki Dewa as the music composer.
The anime follows Gabimaru the Empty, a former ninja assassin feared as a heartless husk of a man, who spends his days on death row wondering when an executioner skilled enough to so much as harm him will arrive, as he thinks nothing of seeing an end to his meaningless existence.
Then the lady executioner, Asaemon the Beheader, rekindles his hope with an astounding proposition. If he ever wishes to see his beloved wife again, he must embark under the auspices of the shogunate on a perilous voyage to the mysterious mystic island said to house the elixir of immortality.
Should he be the one among many rival death-row fiends and scoundrels to find the elixir, he’ll earn a full exoneration, and, more importantly, a chance at an ordinary married life with the light of his life: the woman who made the world seem not so ugly.
