Viz Publishes Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku Manga Digitally

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga about undying ninja on quest to find elixir of immortality launched in January

Viz Media announced on Twitter on Thursday that it has published the first chapter of Yūji Kaku's Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku manga for free digitally.

The manga centers 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 the manga on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website and app on January 22. Shueisha published the manga's first compiled book volume on April 4, and will publish the second compiled volume on June 4.
