Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku Anime Delays!

Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku's official Twitter account stated last week that the ninth episode will be moved from May 27 to June 3 in the anime adaptation. The anime has been delayed, according to Crunchyroll, but it has been postponed to Friday, June 9. Crunchyroll could have meant Saturday, June 3, given that episodes air on Saturdays. As a result, the episode's English dub has been postponed from June 10 to June 17.

The anime began running on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on April 1. In Japan, Hikari TV, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video all have the show available for streaming. In America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, the anime is available for viewing on Crunchyroll. With the exception of Australia, New Zealand, and China, the series is available on Netflix across the Asia-Pacific region. An English dub is also being streamed on Crunchyroll.

The animation at MAPPA is being directed by Kaori Makita (Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather). Twin Engine is to blame for the preparation. The writer of the Garo -Vanishing Line - episodes and the abandoned Sacred Beasts, Akira Kindaichi, is in charge of the creation of the series. The characters are being created for animation by Koji Hisaki (Kids on the Slope, Banana Fish sub-character design), while the soundtrack is being created by Yoshiaki Dewa (The aquatope on white sand, IRODUKU: The World in Colors). The opening theme tune, "WORK," was created in collaboration with singer Ringo Sheena and the band Millennium Parade.
