I'm pretty sure this will do to Tangutology like K-ON! did to Light Music school clubs...

Than you so much for translating this! A fantastic ride, truly one of the best historical manga I've read in recent memory, and fantastically researched as well. Harabal to the end...what a cool guy. too cool

Wow! This was a great read. Not many authors manage to pull off something like this. I've learned so much and been inspired to look things up while reading this. I'm reading the Romance of the Three Kingdoms next. If you have qualms about reading this just go for it.

A heartwarming and epic tale. I'll be back to reread it one day.

I'd like to point out another great historical/psychological manga*

for those who may feel a "cold turkey" after the end of SH and want more of this quality

It's still ongoing, deserves more readers/followers :)





*yet there are some very hilarious moments

I wasn't really ready for this manga to be over, but the ending was beautiful. I hope this gets licensed so I can put it all on my shelf and re-read it and recommend it to everybody I know.

wow....after finish rading this manga..my only response i can just mutter is "Wow...."....i guess everyone got their happy ending or at least a proper ending eh....thanks to all of the translator and group to see this through to the end...it was such a good ride (like a roller coster i guess...lol)..and in the end, i guess this manga open up my mind a little about "writings" eh...(TT-TT)

I adored the back-to-back images at the end. Really beautiful ride from start to end. Thank you so much everyone.

As others have said, this was a fitting ending for a great series. The loose ends are tied, the fates of the characters are written, and history remains history. No regrets. For once, a series ended when it had to end.


Discovering this manga was an unexpected gift. A story in the times of Genghis Khan with characters from past and future, where the Great Khan is the most terrifying man in the world, a woman from the Western Xia seeks revenge and a young boy wants to protect the writing of a doomed people. It was unique. It was worth it.


Thanks to all the scanlators for their hard work and thanks to the readers whose comments made the experience even more enjoyable.

Thank you so much HappyScans!

One of the best endings i could have hope for.



Thanks to every scanlators group,  you are the real MVP

I'll come back and read this again in a few years...
Wish there could be an official paper english or french publication!

Thank you, Happyscans. And Milky Translations, too, for their initial effort.


This has been one hell of a ride and it'll always be close to my heart..

This was a great ending. Even the omake managed to wrap things up nicely. I just wish we could have gotten Little Sparrow's real name. But I guess that's only for Yurul to know...


Clicking the Unfollow button was harder to do than I'd expected.

Thanks for translating. I've really enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for scanlating Shut Hell. I've been reading this since it was first scanlated, and I've gotta say, it's been an adventure. Thanks again for your hard work.

Thank you so much for translating this series.  Thank you, thank you. c:

Thank you so much!!! I love this series and the work the translators have done, allowing me to enjoy it, cannot be thanked enough. It was a wild ride, but I will never regret having walked it <3

Thank you very much for all your work on this series


There are so few manga out there that manage to end on such a great note. Thank you author, thank you HappyScans. What an amazing read.

I am always confused how this has not been licensed.  This is one of those manga I've followed for years that I would love to have English language editions on my shelf if someone would just bring it over.  Solid manga end to end.  Loved it.  I'm glad it's done and completely translated.  Thank you to all groups for your hard work.

Thank you for translating this, what a nice ending.

It was a great story

Thanks for the translations

very great for ending
