Sentenced to death, ninja Gabimaru the Hollow finds himself apathetic. After leading a blood-soaked life, Gabimaru believes he deserves to die. However, every attempt to execute him inexplicably fails. Finally, Sagiri Yamada Asaemon, a fledgling member of a famed executioner clan, is asked to take Gabimaru's life; yet Sagiri makes no move to kill him as requested.

Insisting that Gabimaru will not die because of his love for his wife, Sagiri instead offers him the chance to obtain a full pardon for his crimes. If he can travel to the island of Shinsekyo and obtain the Elixir of Life—which supposedly grants immortality—and bring it back for the shogun, then his freedom will be assured.

But of the many who have traveled to Shinsekyo in search of the mythical Elixir, not a single person has returned sound of mind, if at all. Though unaware of the numerous dangers ahead, Gabimaru decides to accept the offer—alongside ten other death row convicts—in hope that he and his wife may finally live in peace.

Wonderful animation and music coupled with atrocious writing. Despite the hype and trailer, this anime appears to cater exclusively to a primarily younger audience.

The writing is naive, cringey, and lacks any emotional depth. The story is redundant, constantly reminding you exactly of everyone's intentions, repeatedly, over, and over, and over again. Genre wise, it feels like "death porn" in a sense. This leaves me confused because the animation and sound sync so well together, especially in fights or fast paced scenes.

In conclusion, if you want a quick, "turn off your brain", straight forward shonen where you don't fully have to pay attention, this is ...

You ask yourself as you watch this show. What is the meaning of life? How precious is life to you? How willing are you to survive, how much would you go through, in order to stay not only alive. Despite everything clawing at you. Making you question if it's even earth worth living, or it's all worth it. This show really dives deep into the life and death and how it's valued,so,so well.

Life has a lot of meaning. So does death. As I've said, the anime does an amazing job in capturing the heart of that matter. Do you really wish to ...

One of the standout features of Jigokuraku is its excellent character development. Each character has their unique backstory and motivations, making them easy to root for. Gabimaru, in particular, is a fascinating protagonist who has a dark past and emotional baggage that makes him relatable and intriguing.

The animation is also impressive, with stunning visuals and dynamic fight scenes that keep the audience engaged. The use of color and character designs is also noteworthy, adding to the overall appeal of the anime.

Overall, Jigokuraku is an excellent anime that will appeal to fans of the action and martial arts genres. Its well-developed characters, engaging storyline, and stunning ...
