This story is about some infamous condemned criminals who are offered an official pardon if they go to this mysterious island and bring back the Elixer of life which is believed to be present there.
The reason they choose criminals to do this is that no one has returned from the Island alive. Also, each criminal is assigned a guard from the famous executioner family Yamada Asaemon. Here our main protagonist Garano Gabimaru from the Isikawa ninja clan is considered an emotionless killing machine who was banished from the clan for proposing to live peacefully with his wife.

Questions on Hell’s Paradise
Is Gabimaru the strongest?
Well as of now Gabimaru is the only one who has used and adapted to Tao more than any other person who came to the Island. Also without the knowledge of Tao, he used Tao and the ninja techniques that he learned at Iwagakure Village. Else than Gabimaru Shion, Sagiri and Aza have started using Tao.
Is Yuzuriha also from the same village as Gabimaru?
No, Yuzuriha does not come from the Iwagakure Village but she knew about him because Gabimaru is popular in the world of Shinobi.
The rank of Sagiri Asaemon?
Yamada Sagiri Asaemon is ranked 8th in the Yamada clan due to her executioner skill and swordsmanship.
Did Senta liked Yuzuriha?
Senta’s feeling towards Yuzuriha was not romantic. Even though Yuzuriha was a criminal Senta used to envy her freedom and selfishness which he couldn’t have.
What happened to Gabimaru after using too much Tao?
After using too much Tao in the fight with Doshi he used Tao. He suffers from memory loss and cannot remember the details of the mission or even the face of his wife. But hasn’t forgotten the shinobi techniques.
Though the Tensens are far superior beings able to regenrate and possess great strength and have honed to use of Tao they are not immortal as they use more Tao they get weak and old. Those who are still alive on the Island and who came from the main Island have learned the techniques and use of Tao even without that they were capable of being alive on the Island from where no one was able to come back alive though their journey is still ongoing.
