Gabimaru the Hollow, a former ninja assassin of Iwagakure who is known and feared as a heartless husk of a man, spends his days on death row wondering when an executioner skilled enough to so much as harm him will arrive, as he thinks nothing of seeing an end to his meaningless existence... Or so he thought. After a skilled female executioner belonging to the Yamada clan by the name of Yamada Asaemon Sagiri confronts him, she makes the young ninja open his eyes to the fact that he wants live in order to reunite with his wife and offers him a proposition: if he ever wishes to see his beloved wife again, he is, under the auspices of the shogunate, to embark on a perilous voyage to a mysterious mystic island said to house the Elixir of Life. Should he be the one among many rival death-row fiends and scoundrels to find the elixir and return with it for the shogun, he will earn a full exoneration, and, more importantly, a chance at an ordinary married life with the light of his life — the woman who made the world seem not so ugly. Gabimaru gladly accepts the task but soon finds out that he has recieved more than what he bargained for. Is what awaiting him and the other contenders Hell? Paradise? Or Hell's Paradise?
In British Hong Kong during the mid-1800s, Chōbē notices that the men he took down do not look residents and is told by Tōma that they are from England due to the recent war causing chaos in power. Chōbē becomes pleased to hear this since he believes that it is an opportunity for him to take over the city and declares to the Englishmen that he now rules the underworld from here on. After one of the men calls Chōbē out to be a baby in British, due to the man's stature after he was revived by Tōma in the past with some help from Gui Fa, Tōma translates for Chōbē on what he said and sees his brother transform to kill the man for this insult. Chōbē becomes angry with his clothes being torn to shreds after being forced to transform but is informed by Tōma that he has more clothes in stored. At the same time in a teahouse in Japan's Hitoyoshi Domain, Shion gives his opinion on Nurugai's new appearance being too much for her age but is told that she prefers her new look since the other girls around her dress the same. Nurugai is then hit on by two men, which she found flattering, but sees Shion ward them off with a threat.
After Shija is defeated by Gabimaru, the survivors successfully manages to perform a coordinated attack on the Banko's tanden to bring down the monster. However, the Zhu Jin-fused Banko remains alive after becoming rejuvenated by sunlight and puts the survivors in a difficult situation, having already exhausted all their efforts in their first attack. With no other choice, Aza Chōbē lays down his life to put an end to the chaos and destroys the monster once and for all. Yuzuriha and Mei then encounter Gui Fa and are told of a very important secret they discovered about Rien, as well as the fates of the survivors in the future. At the cost of her life, Mei helps the survivors leave the island on a ship and have them head towards Rien's direction before she reaches Japan. After sneaking onboard Rien's burning ship earlier, Gantetsusai gets into a scuffle with Shugen and slashes the Tensen's ship, leaving enough time for the survivors to reach it. Gabimaru then jumps onboard and prepares himself to engage in a battle with both Rien and Shugen.
Gabimaru engages in a death match against Chōbē but is saved just in time by Mei who resorts to unleashing her power to create a massive crater, causing the out of control bandit to fall down to the valley. Gantetsusai and Fuchi then decide to take Tōma and the Dōshi along with them on their path towards the Hōrai gate, where they soon encounter Sagiri, Shion, Yuzuriha, Nurugai, and Hōko outside the entrance. Sagiri confirms that Gabimaru has lost his memories due to losing too much of his Tao and uses a Tao Restoration to bring him back to normal. After the two groups relocate to a cave, Yuzuriha tells Gabimaru of her theory that his wife is an illusion. However, based on his emotions, Gabimaru is convinced that his wife, Yui, is real and that the only way of knowing for sure is to make it back home. While the others help Gabimaru train in preparation to battle Lord Tensen, Mei reveals information about Lord Tensen and is rejuvenated by Hōko's sacrifice. Meanwhile, Chōbē encounters Rien, the leader of Lord Tensen, at the valley and is taken to the palace after Rien sees him as a valuable asset to his plans. Shortly after, Mei senses that the second team has made their arrival on the island.
