With that being said, let’s start this topic by looking at what Hell’s Paradise is about.

About Jigokuraku: Hell’s Paradise

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.
