There are plenty of new anime coming our way as part of the wave of new releases in the Spring 2023 anime schedule, but… Heaven of Hell: JigokurakuYour anime may just be the highlight to watch among all the new hits! Spring is largely dominated by franchises returning for new episodes such as Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc, but there are some manga that are starting to debut as well. Yuji Kaku Hell’s paradise The manga may have run its course a while ago, but this gives the anime a clear path to tell the best possible version of the story.
Hell’s paradiseThe anime adaptation is set to be released next month, and admittedly, it’s having a bit of trouble when it comes to garnering some fan attention. Produced by Studio MAPPA, the same company behind it Chainsaw mananime and the next Jujutsu Kisen Season 2, Heaven Hell: Jigokuraku promises a very unique kind of setting with a central storyline that will surely appeal to fans thanks to just how much is on the table in terms of battles, character deaths, and more.
I’ve spent the past few days reading through Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku before it comes out in the anime this spring, and this is going to be a VIP. It’s very cool. There’s also a lot of careless nudity too curious to know how that works haha pic.twitter.com/jFHc5j5EIy

How to watch and read hell heaven
Hell’s paradiseCurrently slated for an April 1st release date, Crunchyroll will be streaming the new series to global audiences shortly after its initial launch in Japan. The series revolves around an assassin ninja known as Gabimaru the Hollow. He is sentenced to death after betraying his clan (which is when he admits he wants to live a normal life with his wife, who is also the clan chief’s daughter), but gets a reprieve when he is tasked with heading to a mysterious island in search of the elixir of life for the shogun.
Ten criminals end up “qualifying” for this task through bloody means, and if they can obtain the Elixir of Life and return it to the Shogun, they will receive a full pardon. Things only explode from there as the island is filled with wild beasts (with religious influences) and the real enemy presents himself. Hell’s paradise is a somewhat shorter series in the grand scheme of things, but it doesn’t skimp on action. Characters die left and right, you’ll find yourself rooting for unexpected characters, and there’s even a power-up system that unfolds as the series goes on.
If you want to read Hell’s paradise Before the new anime comes out, you can now find the entire 127-chapter long series with Viz Media’s Shonen Jump Digital Library (with a paid subscription). There are a few things that might not make it into the anime due to how naked some of the characters are, so the manga might be the way to go!
