Laughter at the World’s End (終末のラフター) is a one-shot series manga by Yellow Tanabe, who is best known for the manga series “Kekkaishi”, which has been adapted as an anime television series. The one-shot story is one of her most notable short works, and has sold over 60,000 copies in Japan.
The story is set in a fantasy world that has fallen into ruin, and the ongoing war between humans and those who have been cursed to walk the earth as immortals. The protagonists are a pair of siblings who are demon hunters, but sport the tattoo of the cursed as well. This is the first English translated version of Laughter at World’s End.
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?
