In the latest episode, while the convicts learn to grasp the mysteries of the Tao, the power of the Lord Tensen is explained in some pretty uncomfortable fashion.

RECAP: Hell’s Paradise Episode 11 Spoilers, and What to Expect in Episode 12

The latest episode went over a lot. From Chobe’s recovery from an apparent death blow and quickly turning the tides in his fight, to Gabimaru learning to master his Tao, there was a lot to unpack. The understanding of Tao in combat is described as the combined notions of “strong” and “weak” power, combining them in a binary, complementary construct.

This goes on to explain why the Tensen are both male and female presenting, and why Mei was ostracized, only possessing Yin. As uncomfortably explained by the Doshi, part of harnessing their respective power is by joining their Yang with her Yin in the act of bochu jutsu, or sexual intercourse. Naturally, their desire to capture Mei becomes more problematic here, and Gabimaru and Gantetsusai see a greater purpose in defending her against these individuals.

Gabimaru eventually masters his Tao in this fight, using the more empathetic side he has shown since coming to the island, as well as the relentless aggression he is infamous for with his Hollow persona. Meanwhile, Sagiri, Yuzuriha, Senta, and Hoko have a deadly confrontation with Mu Dan before the episode concludes.

With the release of Hell’s Paradise Episode 12, we’ll see more of this encounter, as well as possibly some developments from the mainland including an Iwagakure search party seeking out Gabimaru.
