What to expect in Hell’s Paradise Episode 2 

With Episode 1 setting the scene, the next instalment will likely introduce the supporting cast of the series, many of whom appeared in the official trailer for the anime. Hell’s Paradise Episode 2 will likely show Gabimaru and Sagiri traveling to Edo, where the other death-row convicts chosen to be sent to the mysterious Shinsenkyo have gathered.

We might also get more information regarding the expedition and the “survivors” from previous search parties who had turned into flowers. The official trailer for the anime shows several swordsmen clad in the Yamada Asaemon uniforms, who might also make an appearance.

While Episode 1 explored Gabimaru’s emotional turmoil and depicted his superhuman skills of him, Sagiri simply remained as a spectator and a skilled executioner. Hell’s Paradise Episode 2 might shed more light on her background, since it was already established that it was rare for a woman to become a Yamada Asaemon.

Hell’s Paradise Episode 1 recap

Hell’s Paradise Episode 1 began with the district magistrate’s office trying and failing to execute “Gabimaru the Hollow,” while the convict himself expressed his frustration upon instinctively resisting the officers’ attempts to kill him. The officials tried to behead him, set him on fire, and rip him apart by typing his legs to bulls, but none of the techniques had any effect on the Iwagakure shinobi.

As Sagiri interviewed him, Gabimaru described his life in the village and his eventual capture upon wishing to leave. His testimony revealed that the village chief was the one who dictated and wielded complete control over the lives of the men, women, and children living there.

Sagiri eventually disclosed her identity as a Yamada Asaemon and offered to kill Gabimaru, forcing the convict to wonder if he really wanted to die. The ninja assassin remembered his beloved wife, who was his sole reason from him to keep on living. Sagiri correctly deduced that the convict wanted to give up a life of killing in order to fulfill his wife’s desire to live as normal people.

The Yamada Asaemon then announced that she was looking for potential candidates to undertake a journey to Shinsenkyo in search of the Elixir of Life in exchange for the Shogun’s pardon and his protection from both the state and Iwagakure’s shinobi.

With his will to live reignited, Gabimaru used ninjutsu to single-handedly take down the guards attacking them. Hell’s Paradise Episode 1 ended with Sagiri explaining to the convict that their next stop was Edo, where the other chosen criminals would gather before embarking on their journey.

Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku began receiving a lot of attention ever since the anime adaptation for the series was announced during Shueisha’s Jump Festa 2021 convention. With Studio MAPPA handling the animation, fans have high hopes for Season 1 of the dark fantasy/horror anime.
