Hell’s Paradise first premiered on April 1, 2023 and will consist of 13 total episodes. MAPPA is in charge of the animation production, with Crunchyroll streaming the series in North America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The anime is based on the manga by Yuuji Kaku, which ran in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ from January 22, 2018 to January 25, 2021 with 13 total tankoubon volumes. The manga also inspired a spin-off manga and a novel.

Viz Media releases the manga in English as Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku and describes the story as:

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