Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku Manga Lands TV Anime SeriesSome paradise-y news for fans of Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku. The Shonen Jump+ manga by Yuji Kaku has landed a TV anime adaptation.

The manga is about a rogue ninja named Gabimaru who’s somehow survived multiple execution attempts, and who is sent on a mission to find the elixir of immortality.

It ran on Shonen Jump+ from January 2018 until… today! It currently runs 12 compiled volumes, with another to come.

In English, Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku is released by Viz Media, who describe it like this:

Gabimaru the Hollow is one of the most vicious ninja assassins ever to come out of the village of Iwagakure. He’s ruthlessly efficient, but a betrayal results in him being handed a death sentence. There is only one hope: travel to a long-hidden island and recover an elixir that will make the shogun immortal and he will regain his freedom. Failure is not an option—on this island, Heaven and Hell are a hair’s breadth away.
