Hell's Paradise: Departure Arc | Review

Rating - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

"With the Zhu Jin-fused Banko destroyed, the surviving members of the first and second landing parties acquire a ship to leave the island and attempt to stop Rien from arriving to Japan and eradicating its citizens."


The Departure Arc is the 4th and final arc in Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku, a manga by Yuji Kaku. This arc consists of chapters 111-126.

We have finally arrived at the finale of the series, and boy was it a wild ride. I had a lot of different emotions and reactions, mostly good, but I do think that this was the weakest arc.

I was admittedly a bit confused when it came to some plot points because it felt there was some plot armour for the sake of keeping the story going.

I did have some issues with the final battle. For one, the way every concluded felt a bit anticlimactic because of the way it went down. Secondly, and that is my fault, or my internet frankly because it wasn't loading properly, but I kept missing out on important details because everything was moving so quickly. I also would have been nice to have Chobe in the final fight but...that didn't happen.

I will also be honest that this ended in a way I was not expecting, because of the expectations I had going into this. I did like the epilogue ending though, as it was nice to see.

Now it is time for some spoilery thoughts I had while reading. If you don't want to be spoiled, you can stop reading now.










Everyone is fighting and Jikka is just lying down in the background like 'don't mind me, I'll mind the boat' lol.

...Well okay then.

  • So Gabimaru hesitated to kill Rien because he could relate to her because of Yui, and Rien understood that which resulted in her giving up so that she could move on with her husband.

This ended way more optimistically than I was expecting it to.

  • Like I thought everyone was going to die, but almost everyone ended up surviving (except Fuchi which sucks)

  • Even Chobe managed to survive after everything
