Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku is one of this season’s most anticipated anime, and here’s where to watch it in Asia, North America, and more.
Many anime shows are quite complicated when it comes to streaming rights and which platform airs the show. Though for Hell’s Paradise, it’s much simpler as two major platforms hold streaming rights for the series, with availability depending on where you are.
Where to Watch Hell’s Paradise in Asia
Anime fans in Asia will be able to watch Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku on Netflix as the streaming giant holds the streaming rights for the series in Asia Pacific (except in China, Australia, and New Zealand). We can confirm that the anime is available on Netflix in the Philippines, and it is listed as available in South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and India (via uNoGS).
Though take note that it seems the Jigokuraku Netflix release is a bit delayed. Specifically, it looks like new episodes are released 24 hours following their initial Japanese broadcast. This was the case for the first two episodes, though here’s hoping that the next episodes are not delayed like this.

Meanwhile, fans outside Asia can watch new episodes of Jigokuraku every week on Crunchyroll.
The anime is available on Crunchyroll in the following regions: North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku is the newest anime from MAPPA, the studio behind Chainsaw Man, Attack on Titan: The Final Season, and Jujutsu Kaisen, among others. The anime is based on the manga of the same name by Yuji Kaku, and it’s one that’s highly recommended for Chainsaw Man fans given that the author has worked as an assistant to Tatsuki Fujimoto on Fire Punch.
The show’s premise 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’ve already seen the first two episodes and can’t wait to know what happens next, the complete manga is available now on Viz Media’s Shonen Jump platform, though a subscription is needed to read the series in full.
