It’s a slightly longer chapter than normal with some color pages that is set after the original manga, so watch out for spoilers because obviously it talks about the end of the story.
According to the official synopsis of the chapter, the plot follows some children who try to get rid of a stranger who has settled on the outskirts of their town. But it doesn’t matter what they do, because it doesn’t go away and it doesn’t seem like he might die.
It is not very clear how long this mini-sequel to ‘Hell’s Paradise’ will be available, because for now in the Spanish version of MANGA Plus we can only follow the first three chapters of each series and the last three for free… In principle ‘The unexpected forest’ does not seem to have an expiration dated, and can be read with translations in English and Spanish.
