I am extremely delighted that I can be part of the work “Hell’s
My name is Chikahiro Kobayashi, who will be playing Yamada
Asaemon Shion. Please enjoy watching the story of people from different backgrounds fighting for survival. Don’t miss out on their turning points. Please look forward to it

Chikahiro Kobayashi

Tenza is a character which is compassionate and always believes in himself. He is genuine and the most distinctive character within the Yamada family. His characteristic tends to move others, so I assume that he’ll be someone that will also move the audience too. Cruel fights set in a beautiful paradise…who is going to survive? Please look forward to the show

Yusuke Kobayashi

What a beautiful and a grotesque world. It’s a hell located inside a paradise. Eeriness that exists within the solemn. People try to survive in such a place. I was taken away instantly by such a worldview. I feel honored that I’ll be able to participate in this work. Nurugai’s has a strength as a mountain nomad and also youthfulness as a child. I’m hoping to act her out by putting all my heart!

Makoto Koichi

I’ll be in charge of Senta’s voice. I wonder what it is like to represent the Yamada Asaemon…What would you do if as soon as you are born in this world your future and your path is determined? I would like to walk the same path with Sen

Daiki Yamashita

The Edo period is nearing its end. Gabimaru, a shinobi formerly known as the strongest in Iwagakure who is now a death row convict, is told that he will be acquitted and set free if he can bring back the Elixir of Life from an island that is rumored to be the Buddhist pure land Sukhavati. In hopes of reuniting with his beloved wife, Gabimaru heads to the island along with the executioner Yamada Asaemon Sagiri. Upon arriving there, they encounter other death row convicts in search of the Elixir of Life… as well as a host of unknown creatures, eerie manmade statues, and the hermits who rule the island. Can Gabimaru find the Elixir of Life on this mysterious island and make it back home alive?
