Hell’s Paradise Episode 5 Spoilers and What to Expect in Episode 6
Gabimaru and his group camp out and successfully survive the night. While foraging for supplies, Gabimaru makes notes of the vegetation of the surroundings on Shinsenkyo and figures out which plants aren’t grown from the corpses of would-be invaders. The group presses on, but with friction between Sagiri and her fellow Yamada Asaemon — her comrades, especially Genji, don’t believe her to be worthy largely based on her gender.
Meanwhile, Nurugai, another convict traveling with Yamada Asaemon Tenza, attempts to escape the island in vain. Much of Nurugai’s backstory is revealed, painting this character in a more sympathetic light than other convicts, as a member of a tribe whose cultural uniqueness and refusal to submit to Tokugawa alone was seen as a violation by the Shogunate. A bond is formed between Nurugai and Tenza, along with the amusing reveal of Nurugai’s gender to a flustered Tenza.
But the climax of the episode happens just as it ends, with Rokurōta appearing behind Genji, who went from lecturing Sagiri to attempting to discipline or even kill her. The episode covered Chapters 10-12 successfully, with a tease of Chapter 13’s events, where Gabimaru and Sagiri fight the giant together.
Between Chapters 13-15 in the Hell’s Paradise manga, we see Rokurōta’s backstory, and the Herculean task for our heroes as they attempt to take down this assailant, along with an awesome showcase of Gabimaru’s Ninpo abilities. These chapters will likely be the focus of Hell’s Paradise Episode 6 upon its release. While they ultimately bring this enemy down with a forest fire, we more importantly witness the cooperation of a prisoner and his Yamada Asaemon.
Reactions to HP: Jigokuraku Episode 5
Personally, I found this episode important in how it highlights the value of cooperation between the prisoners and their guards. Each prisoner has adapted in their way, with Gabimaru developing a strong connection to Sagiri, Nurugai being charmed by Tenza’s chivalry, and Yuzuriha’s wiles being deployed to seduce Genji and charm Senta to her side. Even Chōbei has his ins, with his brother being his Asaemon. They found ways to adapt and survive using their character strengths.
What I found a little silly was how much more obvious it became for who would be given plot armor in the series. As satisfying as it is to see Genji, so annoyingly sexist and obsessed with Sagiri’s gender and station, get his side torn out in the end, it was clear he would not survive because he wouldn’t adapt. Many of the Yamada Asaemon is too rigid for their good, and while it worked out in Tenza’s case, whenever it results in a lack of cooperation or infighting, the characters are not long for this world.
But now we get to see the first truly deadly confrontation between the prisoners with the release of Hell’s Paradise Episode 6, and it’ll be awesome to see Gabimaru and Sagiri work as a team.
