Hell’s Paradise is taking its thrill ride on its next stop to Shinsenkyo. This paradoxical realm is gorgeous and looks serene, but is monumentally deadly, full of divine-looking creatures with a devilish twist. The latest episode saw Gabimaru and company land on this mysterious island’s shores, only to continue clashing for survival and the advantage in finding the Elixir of Life. Hell’s Paradise sees these characters seek new allegiances, and test out their existing bonds of trust in episode 4, so be sure to ready yourself for the release.

While this episode finally gives us a glimpse at Shinsenkyo and the dangers the convicts present to the Yamada Asaemon executioners assigned to their detail. But the real tease is at the end of the episode, where we see the inhabitants, hellish abominations, some with features of different animals, and disturbing human anatomy attached such as hands, fingers, and faces. We’re with Tamiya Gantetsusai’s assessment here, because things just got interesting.

HP Jigokuraku Episode 4 Spoilers


While the previous episodes of Hell’s Paradise covered practically a chapter at a time, episode 4 sped through Chapter 6 of the manga, effectively meaning it covered the first volume in the show. It’s from Chapter 7 onward that the convicts learn just how much of a threat the actual island is, beyond the violent murderers being sent there.

Gabimaru had done quick work of Warped Keiun while other convicts have had to find ways to survive along with their executioners. We even see some aggressive pragmatism such as from Gantetsusai, who upon discovering a bite from one of the island’s man-faced bugs, cuts his hand off for fear of being infected and disfigured like a returning traveler shown in episode 2.

In episode 4, we’ll see Gabimaru and Sagiri clash with hellish creatures including fish-men and other monsters resembling Buddha, wearing prayer beads and other religious vestments. The mystery grows deeper, and Gabimaru finds himself having to channel his more violent side in order to survive. We’ll soon also see cooperation (if you can call it that) from Yuzuriha, one of the other convicts and supporting characters. We’re excited for you to see what comes next!
