Gokurakugai is Sano Yuto’s first manga series and is based on the one-shot Gokurakugai Sanbandori No Ken. The series will debut in Jump SQ 8 on July 7, 2022.
Sano Yuto has created three other one-shots Lawless Kid, Watashi no Maou-Sama and Love Soldier Caroline.
What is Gokurakugai about?
Sis Tao and Al are problem solvers who work in the red light district for money. They do everything for the right price and have no problems getting what they ask for.
Gokurakugai Sanbandori No Ken is wonderful. The art is fluid, and you’re never confused about what’s happening or which panel to look at.
Sano Yuto knows how to tell a story without holding the reader’s hand. The mixture of humour, action and heavy topics is perfectly balanced in the one-shot.
What is a one shot?
One-shot is a term used for a manga with a single chapter. They are used to test ideas and see if they are good enough to become a series manga.
Most one-shots are around 50 pages, so if you’re looking for a quick read, check out Sano Yuto’s other works. I’ve read Lawless Kid and it fits into the Gokurakugai universe.
The setting is different, but you get the same excitement. These aren’t happy worlds, but the one-shots end on a positive note.
Sis Tao will do anything for money, and Al is happy as long as he’s full. Their dynamic is fresh, and some panels offer clues to future events in the story.
I look forward to seeing more from Gokurakugai. This will be an awesome manga as long as Sano Yuto keeps doing what he is doing.
