Gabimaru has accepted the task he is unaware of and Jigokuraku Hell’s Paradise Episode 2 will start his journey to the island which has never returned a human alive but he is all set to do it as he sees hope of reuniting with his wife. Read till the end for the complete details about Jigokuraku Episode 2.
In the first episode, we saw that Gabimaru was on death row for his crimes and the local lord tried to execute him many times using different methods but nothing worked on him. Gabimaru always claimed that he clung to death but all along he wanted to live for his wife and she made him change his heart.
This all went south when Gabimaru asked his wife’s father and village leader who also killed Gabimaru’s parents for unknown reasons to be released from his duties. Gabimaru was then thrown out of his village but the hope of meeting her wife again is still keeping him alive even though he claims that he wants to die.
Sagiri, another lead from the series made him an offer that if he can bring the elixir of life (some magic potion that keeps a person in his youth forever) he will be released from his crimes and then he can return to his wife. Gabimaru then accepted the offer without knowing the things that are coming for him. A detailed recap can be read below.

Jigokuraku Hell’s Paradise Episode 1 Recap
The very first episode of the series started with the first execution of Gabimaru the protagonist as he is on death row and feudal lords want him dead. The first execution is with his head being cut but the thing that gets cut is the blade they were using. Gabimaru portrays himself that he hates everything and having nothing to live for. Then he thinks about why he can’t die when he wants it. We then see the female lead of the series Sagiri who is interrogating Gabimaru and why can’t he die.
Gabimaru is from Iwagakure, that is a town of Shinobi who are trained to assassinate people, Gabimaru also has killed too many and he does not even know the count. Then the second execution attempt we see if setting him on fire but he also walks away from it as if nothing happened. Sagiri is recording all these her notes and asking questions Gabimaru. Then we take a look into Gabimaru’s backstory. He does not know who his parents were and they were killed by the village chief for unknown reasons but he does not have any feelings about it.
He also does not have any big goal and he just killed people because he was ordered to do so. He then got bored and tried to leave the village but that is not possible for Shinobi and that is why he ended up in his current situation. The next execution we see is getting pulled by bulls but here Gabimaru’s strength easily gets over with bulls. Then we got to know that he wanted to leave the village because of his wife who is also the village chief’s daughter. He got fed up with her and asked to leave the village.
He then got caught in a trap set by Chief but somehow escaped from the village. He is called Hollow because he does not have any emotions and all. He then tried to burn with oil but this was also a failed attempt Gabimaru now was questioning his own dilemma about his life. Then we saw Sagiri and some samurai in a room where Sagiri was introduced as a sword tester and executioner from Edo. This time Gabimaru felt real terror and knew that Sagiri is a serious deal and he can not escape now.
Then she attacked him and it was a difference of microseconds but Gabimaru was able to dodge that attack. Then Sagiri told him that he told her all truth but he lied about one thing and that thing was his wife. He had a change of heart after he got married and we saw the scar his wife was intentionally given to her by her father so she can feel ordinary. He then decided that he will quit killing people and live like a normal person with his wife but he made a mistake here that he assumed that the village chief will understand after all it was about his daughter’s life.
Things then went south and he got trapped and ended up in his current situation where he is fighting an executioner over the fact that she does not acknowledge him as a hollow same like his wife did not. Then Sagiri stopped the fight and told him that he can get his freedom in one way and he will be pardoned for all the crimes he did till now. Then we saw an explanation about Hell’s Paradise Island situated in the underworld.
The Shogun wants the elixir of life and after many unsuccessful attempts they are now sending the most notorious criminals to the island to get the elixir and Sagiri is recruiting them. She also told him that his wife is still in Iwagakure and waiting for his return since the day he got captured. Gabimaru then thought about his wife for a moment and then remembered Sagiri’s request to see ninjutsu and then used an attack called ‘Ninpo: Ascetic Blaze‘. He then accepted Sagiri’s offer and said he will do anything for her.
