The Hit Anime Hell's Paradise Is Coming To Blu-Ray With An Amazon-Exclusive Limited Edition

Betrayed by his clan’s leader, unwilling to die, and stuck on death row far from his love, Gabimaru has one chance to earn his freedom.


One of the hottest anime series of the year is headed to Blu-ray soon, and you can grab a preorder for Season 1 of Hell's Paradise from Amazon. A tale of assassins, samurai, and the search for immortaility, Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku will arrive on August 27. Two different editions are up for grabs, including one that's exclusive to Amazon.

The Season 1 box set comes with all 13 episodes on both standard Blu-ray and DVD, and for extras you'll get the usual clean credit sequences and promo videos. The Amazon-exclusive limited edition also includes a unique slipcase, art cards, and a booklet showing off concept art from the series. This is priced at $90, but there's also a set without the extras for $54.

The anime follows the almost unkillable shinobi Gabimaru on his quest to earn his freedom so that he can return to his wife and get revenge on the clan leader who betrayed him. All he has to do is explore a mysterious island filled with all manner of unknown danger, bring back the fabled Elixir of Life, and live to tell the tale. To make things more complicated, Gabimaru has to compete against several other death-row convicts and their guardians, while sinister forces observe them.

If you're looking to read the original manga this anime was adapted from, those are also available in paperback form. Illustrated by Yuji Kaku, the manga has fantastic art and incredible action sequences. All 13 volumes have been translated into English, and these are priced at around $10-$15 each.
