This year’s 18th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced that the Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku manga will get a special one shot on the Shonen Jump+ service on April 8, 2023 titled “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku Special Edition: Forest of the Unexpected.”

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, and the series ended on January 25, 2021. VIZ Media is publishing the manga in English.
