In the waning years of the Edo Period. Once hailed as the strongest shinobi, the much-feared Gabimaru goes astray and is soon captured. He is told that if he brings back the legendary elixir of life from an island rumored to be paradise, he will be granted the highest pardon from the shogunate.

In order for Gabimaru to reunite with his beloved wife, he travels to the island with the executioner Yamada Asaemon Sagiri.

However, when Gabimaru and Sagiri land on the island, his fellow death row convicts stand in their way. And there were the mysterious beings inhabiting this so-called paradise, unnatural eerie statues and supernatural creatures ruling the island…

Will Gabimaru find the elixir of life and escape the hellish island with his life? 

The manga, Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku, is written by Yuji Kaku and published on Shonen Jump+. Viz Media is publishing the series in English.
