Of the four new cast members, Daiki Yamashita is likely the most popular among shonen anime fans. After all, he is the voice of My Hero Academia’s main character, Deku.

Yamashita has also voiced various popular characters in the last couple of years, including Naoto Hachiouji aka Senpai in Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro, and Narancia Ghirga in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind.

In Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku, Yamashita will play the role of Yamada Asaemon Senta, a supporting character and the executioner assigned to Yuzuriha, a female ninja on death row.

Executioners play a big role in Jigokuraku, as the series follows the story of convicts on death row as they’re sent on an expedition to retrieve the elixir of life. If the convicts obtain the elixir, they will be pardoned for their crimes.

Of course, the convicts won’t go by themselves as each one is assigned an executioner from the Yamada clan, which is best known for being executioners tasked with testing new swords on convicts.
