Description
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....

And what does a present day Japanese boy have to do with them?

Translation meaning

For what I read on internet, Shutoheru (シュトヘル) means demon in mongolian, the official name in romaji in japanese is Shutohel, look here ( http://goo.gl/YKxXeV ) the production page name "shutohel" appears above the japanese title. (production notes were published on February edition of Gekkan spirits of this year)

Great manga but sometimes you don't need to translate everything to proper english ESPECIALLY when it's a GODDAMN NAME! They should just leave the name as "Shuto Heru" At least it'll sound like a name not a phrase.

And the awful translation hurts my brain. Don't they have proofreader? It feels like I'm reading a direct google translation.

Shut Hell? More like Shut Norris

I'm actually enjoying this, it's a bit twisty but I think I get it now. I really like Shut Hell, she's cool and I want to see what happens with Sudou in her body. I really hope the scanlators keep going with this manga because it's worth it. I'd also like to know her real name because somehow calling her Shut Hell seems rather awkward.

The content is not bad, even though i may not agree with the directions the mangaka took. But the one thing most damned is the name Shut Hell. frankly, the original name shuto heru is better.

the next group that pick up this series should use it instead of shut hell. What the heck is shut hell?

I second Ichen's comment. This series was fun, but the story could have been told more efficiently with a tighter focus and less characters. The series suffers the more you reread it, because the initially shocking motivations of characters are actually shallow and not convincing. Despite the interesting premise and ancient setting, the delivery is just a popcorn movie.

I tried and got to the hanging but this story misses all the marks. Everyone's backstories are told, there is no mystery and usually I don't care for "mysterious" characters. Maybe it's because the backstory of Shut Hell herself is beyond lame and senseless. All the characters' motivations are not particularly deep or even believable. The time travel/body swap thing kept me reading longer than I would've with just the main story of the past. It's just frustrating, good idea but something went very wrong with the execution. It really lacks the depth to back up emotions they throw at you, it's no Ares or Claymore.

Somehow I am reminded of Total War series from SEGA. I am pretty sure the author have played this game and copied some scenes from it. I apologize if I offended, but that's just a minor impression I got while reading this manga. I can tell, it's a good work and interesting like many other historical mangas; only thing that bogs me is it dealt with Mongol, which I personally feel awkard toward the author's approach about them. I don't like the fact that there are some excessive emphasis on cruelty of Mongol leadership with too much aspects on Japanese war ideology (or mangaka war ideology if that's more appropriate) into completely different culture. These contradict from what I read from some books on Mongol.

Only 17 chapters yet I am instantly addicted. I love the premise of this series, and I love semi-historical epic manga like Berserk, Vinland Saga, Dangu (Shaman Warrior), and Mugen no Juunin (Blade of the Immortal). Shut Hell just added to my list. I can see this becoming an excellent masterpiece already.

The premise with the modern characters and gender bending made gave Shut Hell a very interesting and unique twist to its historical setting that got me hooked. The three layers of the plot (the modern, the events after Shut Hell's revival, and the retelling of Shut Hell and Yurul's past) makes excellent story telling that makes me like this series even more.

The characters are amazing, especially Shut Hell. I love that expression on her face that's not quite a frown, not quite a smile, and not quite a sneer, but something in between. Man, does Itoh Yu know how to design her characters! Alfald, Harabal, Yurul. I just stare at them for hours and wonder how she how she designed and drew them.

I love the action sequences, I've never seen anything quite like it. Given Shut Hell is female, there are a lot of acrobatics involved which is very different from the masculine actions in the series mentioned previously. Most of the actions are depicted realistically which makes it even more awesome. And I just enjoy unentangling the complex twist of action that Shut Hell and her prey are engaged in.

Shut Hell has everything that I like it in: wolves, tigers, blood and gore, China, redheads with swords, and a good little bit of history and geography.

Shut Hell is similar to The Twelve Kingdoms (both being about China and redheaded heroines with swords), yet very different at the same time. The only thing that mars Shut Hell is the god-awful translations. Its so bad that I have to ignore the speech bubbles and make up my own dialogue. Hopefully somebody else who actually knows the language picks up the project soon.

The story and art is pretty good (though what the hell is with that weird reincarnation/flashback intro that has nothing to do with the flow of the series?) but the translations are really terrible. Seriously, whoever is translating this series--GET AN EDITOR. The English is terrible. And stop using a thesaurus: because those words? Do not mean what you think they mean.

But the art is really interesting. The mangaka was obviously influenced a lot by Western comics, and the level of detail (and gore) is really well done. Though I usually have no idea what's happening in the action scenes. Everything looks like action lines and distorted perceptions and ink blotches then.
