Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku is one of the most anticipated anime of Spring 2023, and it is now streaming on Netflix in select countries.
While most anime fans are probably hyped for shows like Demon Slayer or the surprise hit Oshi no Ko (which recently made a huge splash with its feature-length premiere), some viewers may not be familiar with Hell’s Paradise. Though it is one to watch as it’s made by MAPPA, the studio behind hit titles like Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Attack on Titan The Final Season.
For fans in the Americas, Europe, and other regions, Hell’s Paradise is streaming on Crunchyroll. Though as is often the case with most new anime, Crunchyroll does not have the rights to stream this show in Asia.
Specifically, fans can watch Hell’s Paradise on Netflix in the Philippines, and it is also available in other Asian countries, including South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and India (via uNoGS).
Though we’ve noticed that the show’s Netflix release is delayed by over a day. While each new episode is released every Saturday evening in Japan (and PH time), new episodes are only released on Netflix on Monday in PH time.
Aside from being made by MAPPA, Hell’s Paradise is exciting as it’s written by Yuji Kaku, a manga artist who has worked with Chainsaw Man creator Tatsuki Fujimoto on Fujimoto’s previous work, Fire Punch. While their styles are not totally the same, fans of Fujimoto’s works will no doubt enjoy this series.
As for its premise, the manga’s story is described as:
Gabimaru reigns as the strongest and most ruthless assassin in his village. But now finds himself on death row—with only one way out: retrieve the Elixir of Life from a sinister island. Longing for freedom, he accepts the challenge. But with fellow convicts vying for the same prize and demonic beasts lurking, how will Gabimaru survive this harrowing quest?
If you can’t wait for the next episode, the manga is available now on Viz Media’s Shonen Jump service.
