HP Jigokuraku Anime Episode 2 Recap and Episode 3 Spoilers: What to Expect

Episode 2 was a greater demonstration of Gabimaru’s reluctant stance on killing despite being a proficient assassin. He, along with many other death row inmates, is brought with their companion executioners before the Shogun. They are given a challenge, a sort of culling of the herd to meet the capacity limits of the vessel taking them to the island. This means they must fight to the death, with their hands tied.

A brutal melee ensues in which new characters are introduced, and their deadly combat prowess is showcased. It implies others with similar abilities to Gabimaru, such as a blonde village chief Aza Chōbei and the kunoichi Yuzuriha, among others. But most of all, we see the ruthless abilities of Gabimaru once more, tearing his opponents to shreds after being put to the task by the Shogunate.

Here we see Sagiri’s resolve to kill tested, reflected in how Gabimaru fights for his life. Finally, the remaining inmates go to the island, in pursuit of the Elixir of Life, to secure their pardon.

Episode 3 of Hell’s Paradise will open exactly where Chapter 3 of the manga picks up. The anime has done a good job of essentially adapting each chapter per episode, a strong pace with plenty of content. In this chapter, we see the inmates quickly realizing they’ll have to adapt to the situation to the best of their abilities.

Gabimaru must navigate Shinsenkyo with his hands bound, under threat of execution if he were to return without Sagiri. Unfortunately, one inmate quickly makes a pragmatic decision to eliminate other prisoners to take his time searching for the Elixir, and Gabimaru stands in his way. It’s here we’ll meet Warped Keiun, a deadly inmate, “Hunter of the Hundred.” Be sure to check out this confrontation with the release of Hell’s Paradise episode 3 on April 15, 2023!
