Hell’s Paradise

Genre: Shonen manga

Release Date: April 1, 2023


Hell Paradise

Hell’s Paradise is arguably the most eagerly awaited new fantasy anime of the spring 2023 season. While Yuji Kaku’s manga didn’t have the same level of success as Naruto or Chainsaw Man over its three years on Shonen Jump, it was much celebrated and started to gather tons of followers toward the conclusion of the series.

The story is on an island that appears to be a paradise but is anything but, as the title suggests. Criminals are dispatched to the island to locate a unique object; if they are successful, their sentences will be commuted. But the majority of them won’t likely make it.

Hunter X Hunter

Genre: Adventure fiction, Fantasy, Martial Arts

Release Date: New Season in 2023


Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission - Official Theatrical Trailer

Hunter x Hunter hailed as one of the best action shounen anime ever made, begins as a standard example of the genre before turning out to be quite different. Hunters are people who live in this reality and look into the darkest secrets of the world, and occasionally engage in perilous combat. This ambiguous concept of “Hunters” gives the anime the leeway to tinker with the organization of its plot arcs, including storylines that hardly include the protagonists, Gon and Killua. Hunter x Hunter is a fantastic fantasy anime with a great power system and a solid cast of characters.
