In the latest installment, “Student and Master”, we saw Tenza and Nurugai’s deadly run-in with the intensely powerful, godly inhabitants of the island. In the release of Hell’s Paradise Episode 9, we’ll see Gabimaru and his group push south into Horai, the center region of Shinsenkyo.

Hell’s Paradise Episode 8 Spoilers and What to Expect in Episode 9

To keep things brief, the latest episode was largely a prolonged adaptation of Chapter 21. The chapter featured a greater focus on the backstory than was perhaps expected, but it was a welcome one. Spoilers pertaining to certain characters ahead!

If you read the manga or saw this latest episode, you know that Tenza tragically died. What’s more, they fleshed out his backstory with his mentor, Shion, along with reinforcing just how devastating this loss was for Nurugai. He successfully persuaded Shion that her life was worth protecting, but he was still her first and only ally at the time. Seeing a montage of Tenza’s development under Shion under an extended play of the show’s ending theme, “Kamihitoe”, as the credits played, was a real tear-jerker.

But now Gabimaru and his core group will continue forging on, towards Horai and the Elixir. He comes across strange tree constructs resembling Hoko, seemingly praying, and he encounters the Lord Tensen who fought Tenza. Gabimaru gets into a deadly fight with this mysterious foe, going to be near the brink of death in the process, only to be brought back from the edge by Mei in the end.

The release of Hell’s Paradise Episode 9 on Crunchyroll should adapt the events from Chapters 23-25, and we can’t wait!
