In an era of ruin, mankind lives in fear of those branded with the "Devil's Mouth"—immortals who are demonized, hunted and killed, only to return and exact vengeance on those who have harmed them. Amid the endless cycle of hatred, a young boy and girl appear in a distant town, offering to bury an undead that has been tormenting its people.

But who is this boy who bears the mark of their enemy?

Could they be the key to humanity's salvation?

I'll be completey honest here, at first when Shuumatsu no Laughter was reccomended to me, I thought I would dislike it, seeing the cover and the protagonist looking similar to Naruto, and the whole "demon" boy being shunned by the people, it just seemed way to similar to Naruto and I just knew I'd judge it with unfair eyes. Let's hope my early assumptions were wrong.

Story 5/10

Without going into spoilers, or repeating the synopsis, the story is about a demon boy and his little sister that offer to get rid of the demon terrorizing a town.

The story is pretty straightforward and doesn't really do read more

The first thing a person is going to see when they pick up “Shuumatsu no Laughter” is the cover. On the cover we see a character who strongly resembles Naruto from the series with the same name. A thought will then cross said persons mind. “This is just a knock off of 'Naruto'.” This will make the series hard to pick up for people despite the fact it is only five chapters long, but in reality the phrase “don't judge a book by it's cover” is apt. The story is nothing like “Naruto” despite the fact the creator of “Shuumatsu no Laughter” does in fact read more

For its short length, I was pleasantly surprised to find an incredibly interesting world within Shuumatsu no Laughter. There's something wonderful about finding something so cool in something so small, but the hazard is that mere fact. I want more to this story, a lot more, and all I'm stuck with is this small little section within the main characters lives.

The story itself has solid pacing with an interesting arc and a comfortably placed origin story. The exposition never feels awkward or blatantly expository, and the origin story itself was really quite interesting considering the dynamic between the two leads.

There's a bit of a message read more

I first started reading manga seriously in 2012 so this was one the first mangas I discovered as a young weeb. The only reason I read the first chapter is because the cover looked cool and I was not disappointed. The story is short, simple, and to the point. I honestly expected more from it but when it ended the way it did I was pleasantly happy with how it ended. I would've liked for more chapters but for what I got, I'm not complaining. I recommend this to people still discovering manga and coming into this glorious world of anime. It has really interesting read more
