From Ep.7 of “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku”, which is currently broadcast, new characters have been announced with notable additional casts and character setting photos.
“Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku” is based on ninpo roman action by Kaku Yuuji that was serialized in the manga app “Jump+” from 2018 to 2021 and has sold over 4 million copies.
The story follows Gabimaru, the former “strongest ninja in Iwagakure” who was captured as a runaway and became a criminal, setting out to find the “Elixir of Life” as a condition for being released from prison with the “executioner of beheadings,” Sagiri from the Yamada Asaemon family at the end of the Edo period, to be reunited with his beloved wife.
For Ep.7 of “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku”, it has been announced that Suwabe Junichi and Kaida Yuuko play Tensen, 7 immortals who rule Shinsenkyo. These immortals have the same appearance and voice, and obstruct the way of Gabimaru and others. In the anime, Suwabe and Kaida play the 7 immortals.
Furthermore, Kohara Konomi plays Mei, a mysterious girl who Gabimaru and others encounter in Shinsenkyo. Comments from these 3 casts are below.
I’m so excited to see how the world of “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku” will be recreated in anime. What I do here is….it’s amazing. I’m amazed too. I try my best to obstruct the way of the Death-Row Criminals and The Asaemon!
I was drawn to the original, and ended up reading it all in one sitting! There are 7 Tensen, and I was wondering who I was going to play. It turned out to be them all. It does say “same voice”… I will play them, contemplating the 1000 year-life of each Tensen.
I’m Kohara Konomi and will play Mei.
The world of “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku” is mysterious, fragile, and beautiful. I’m so glad to be able to join it. Although Mei is an adorable girl, she is one of the key players in this story. What happened to Mei in her past, and who is she? I hope you can enjoy the life of Gabimaru and other characters through this anime. Thanks for your support.
The story enters a new phase with the appearance of tough enemies. Expectations for the “Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku” TV anime continue to rise.
