HP Jigokuraku Episode 2 Spoilers and What to Expect
The premiere of Hell’s Paradise episode 1 is very similar to Chainsaw Man in that they are a full-scale adaptation of the series’ respective first chapters. However, like Chainsaw Man, it remains to be seen whether other episodes will be similarly paced, as the Hell’s Paradise manga was exceptionally well-paced but finished its run at 127 chapters.
With that being said, episode 2 will continue first with chapter 2, focusing on Sagiri as she details the mission to the death row criminals assigned to seize the Elixir of Life. But first, a culling of sorts is to happen, and Gabimaru must survive a massacre of the gathered criminals, while Sagiri must adjust to the wanton violence that ensues. Despite being highly proficient as an executioner, she starts to take cues from Gabimaru’s coping techniques.
It’ll be interesting to see more of Sagiri and Gabimaru in battle, especially with the extremely tiny glimpse at Gabimaru’s fire ninjutsu from the previous episode. We can’t wait to see more of what is to come, and our first hints at what people have experienced while going to Shinsenkyo in the form of a disfigured witness. All of it is a mere hint at the gorgeous, dangerous adventure yet to unfold.
