What is Hell’s Paradise Jigokuraku About?
Hell’s Paradise Jigokuraku anime is based on a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Yuji Kaku. The manga’s story mainly revolves around Gabimaru and Yamada Asaemon Sagiri. Gabimaru was a ninja who got captured during an assassination mission, and Yamada Asaemon Sagiri was assigned as Gabimaru’s executioner.
Interestingly, Gabimaru possesses superhuman abilities, making it impossible for Sagiri to kill the ninja. So, he promises Gabimaru to pardon his crimes; the only thing he has to do is find the elixir of life in a mysterious and legendary realm, Shinsenkyo. Obviously, Gabimaru decides to do Sagiri’s bidding and heads to Shinsenkyo with some other convicts.

Sadly NO, MAPPA hasn’t confirmed a release date for Jigokuraku as of yet. The Japanese animation studio is already working on massive projects like Jujutsu Kaisen, Chainsaw Man, and Attack on Titan Final Season. And considering that Chainsaw Man and Attack on Titan Final Season are set to premiere in 2022, the studio might release Jigokuraku sometime in 2023. Anyway, this is just a prediction, and we can’t be sure about it until MAPPA gives us something official around the release date.
