When corruption consumes the world, the akuma with 101 mouths shall appear. Humanity forgot about their existence, continuing to indulge in sin, until the day when the akuma arrived, and dark descended. Some continued to fight, and after seven days of struggle the akuma was destroyed. Or so they thought. Immortal men marked by the "mouth of the akuma", continue to wander the world. A man bearing the mouth of the akuma, named Godot, has blackmailed a town, extorting food and supplies, and in exchange promises not to harm the inhabitants. One day a man appears, also bearing the mouth of the akuma, accompanied only by a young girl named Haru, whom he calls his sister. Claiming to be an akuma eater, he promises to rid the town of Godot once and for all. Who is this young man, and what are his intentions? How does he plan to kill his fellow immortal, Godot?

Good, Though Short   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

I love Yellow Tanabe's work (all that I've read so far.) She has beautiful, sometimes very simplistic but dramatic art, a natural sort of style, and the plot is always fascinating with many layers. Kekkaishi was the same way, though the art in this one was maybe a little better.

It was a little confusing here and there (could be the translation) but it all pretty much made sense eventually, and the twists were unexpected and well put together. The main character is the definition of cool (I love the outfit) and his sister is adorable, even if her face hard to take seriously. I guess that's the point though, they're perfect foils of each other, and their relationship is something I would have liked to explore more if the series was longer. The plot was also something interesting, and I got just enough of it to make me really think. I do wish it continued so the world could be expanded upon and the truth of these "demons" could be better explained, but I also think it was satisfying enough that I'm not left with that itch I get from an unfinished work that leaves too many plot-holes and dangling character arcs.

Overall a very fun read. smile

This manga is sooooo awesome! It is one of my favorites and can't believe it ended after 5 chapters....hopefully they"ll decide to do more with it cuz the story has sooo much potential! That art was GREAT..the story and development I'd rate as 10 (my only downside is its short).. I haven't read anything like this before and would recommend it to everyone..although it is only 5 chapters - hopefully they decide to make more smile - it is a MUST READ and can't wait for more works by Tanabe Yellow!!

Deeper themes at work

It's too bad this series was kept so short because it definitely felt like there was a much deeper story waiting to be told. The characters we're introduced to have more depth in the first few chapters than most shounen manga at their beginning. The entire story comes across as a "first arc/town/battle" of a much longer story.

I love the themes of humanity and prejudice, as well as sacrifice. Actually, the theme of fear is extremely well handled and showcases the sides that lose to their own fear, those that question it, and those that move forward in spite of it.

Even though it ends early, I'd still recommend it. I thoroughly enjoyed it for its art, characters, world and story setup, and the thinking it makes you do.

Luca's speech about fear and it being a pet you keep was my favourite part.

why oh why? this has all the hallmarks of good shounen series with likeable but tough characters, superpowers, powerful creatures, etc...this should be a series! i would love to know more about these characters, and what would happen when they devour every akuma in the world. im so sad sad

Really Good

Yeah yeah yea, it's short and I wished there was more but the ending was so good that I don't think it could be topped off.
The art was good and refreshing, befitting the mood.
The only thing it's lacking is the adventure genre because I think the setting is a little restricting but I still gave it a 10 because it gives such a great feeling.
And I don't see where the horror comes in.

Ps Idk y all the category recommendations are hentai o.o

If your reason for not reading this is because it's horror, you must have a wimpy stomach. If this is horror, so is Fairy Tale and One Piece, and certainly Bleach and Beelzebub.

Besides that, this has a beautiful message, and makes you think. It's worth reading, even if the art isn't that great, and i gave it a 10 despite my normal criteria. So read it. It's worth it.

That mayor and those townspeople are all as*es and f*ckers and should all go kill themselves because i swear, they make me so mad. Why does everyone judge after a stereotype? OMG Just because he's a demon does not mean he is a bad person. The little kid got it in the end. If i could go into that story i would strange that fat pathetic loser of a mayor, then proceed to demolish the town. People like that p*ss me off.

For the more perceptive readers, you will find this series amazing. It differentiates itself from the common shounen series despite having a very similar setting. Like Kekkaishi the author's previous work, most of the attraction lies in character relationships. However instead of a couple, the protagonists are siblings with incredible depth to their characters. One could never guess what emotions and thoughts lies behind their smiling faces. And even the conversation between them could be surprisingly deceiving.

Once again, if you're not prepared to invest a little into the series then you wouldn't see anymore to this story than you would Naruto. Tanabe Yellow's works reward only those who are intelligent enough to comprehend.

I wasn't really surprised by anything in the manga, but that doesn't mean I didn't love the hell out of it. I adore Yellow Tanabe's work. Fantastic art, great writing. Can't wait until her next offering!

For those complaining about how short it is, I actually find it a pretty agreeable length, and I don't think it was axed or anything of the sort. I'm fairly sure that Tanabe Yellow herself decided to end it at one volume. And I can understand why. The storyline seems to be more episodic than not and there's really no overarching plot, which really isn't the mangaka's style. I think it ended at exactly the right moment, with enough glimpses at the world and the characters to make it memorable.

Having said that, I do hope that Tanabe Yellow revisits this world someday because I am certainly interested enough in it to want to read more. I'm definitely looking forward to that new series she has in store for us, though. I'm sure it's amazing!

(Also, no offense to Shoujo-Sense, but I would recommend reading Red Hawk and Imperial's scanlation instead. Their translation is more straightforward and easier to understand for the casual reader, haha.)

This was one of the most unexpectedly axed series i've ever read. Can't understand what's wrong with japanese readers if they let it end so soon. Perhaps it was too complicated for them...
