VIZ Media has announced on Twitter that it has published the first chapter of Yūji Kaku’s Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku manga for free digitally.
The manga focuses on Gabimaru, once exalted as the strongest ninja, but who has now quit his trade, violating the laws of his village. After being captured, he claims he has nothing left to live for. However, due to his superhuman levels of training, he has inadvertently survived multiple executions, from attempts at beheading to burning at the stake. The executioner Sagiri Asaemon tells him that he has lingering attachment to life, and issues him a mission to win his acquittal: to find the elixir of immortality.
Kaku launched Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ website and app on January 22, 2018.
