While the Finale of Yūji Kaku’s Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku Manga was released, this year’s Weekly Shonen Jump Issue No. 8 has revealed that Hell’s Paradise will be getting an Anime Adaption, no word on what studio will be in charge just yet but will provide an update when it comes up! Yūji Kaku commented on his Manga series getting picked up for an Anime Adaption:
“An anime adaptation! … it makes me so happy but, it hasn’t really sunk in yet and it feels like a dream. To all the anime staff, I leave the characters of Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku in your capable hands. Lord Reality, if this is a dream, please do not wake me up.”
“Gabimaru once exalted as the strongest ninja, but who has now quit his trade, violating the laws of his village. After being captured, he claims he has nothing left to live for. However, due to his superhuman levels of training, he has inadvertently survived multiple executions, from attempts at beheading to burning at the stake. The executioner Sagiri Asaemon tells him that he has a lingering attachment to life, and issues him a mission to win his acquittal: to find the elixir of immortality.“
