Beginning of the 13th century.

In the days of old existed a woman warrior named [Shut Hell], the Evil One, feared even by the Mongols, said to be the strongest army in history.

At first, she was just a normal Tangut's soldier frightened by the mongol threat, but after coming close to death so many times, she found in herself a superhuman strength.

On the other side, a young mongol prince, Yurul, is fascinated by the Tangut's, his enemies' writings, and is worried for the future....


Yuu Itou won the New Artist Prize for Shut Hell at the 16th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2012

simply amazing.

Her music transports him jarringly to the body of a woman hanging read more
