In an era of ruin, mankind lives in fear of those branded with the "Devil's Mouth"—immortals who are demonised, 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.

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
