 Cover of Volume 1

Title: シュトヘル, Shut Hell
Author: Itoh Yu
Genre: Seinen, Action, Historical
Serialized in: Shogakukan Big Comic Spirits
Total Volume Count: 1 (ongoing)

Kenn's Comment: Duuude. Intense. Okay, so not really, but the manga is still really good. It's not often you have a main character that's female, and so bad-ass. Despite being so incredibly savage, Shut Hell still acts feminine, so she really never gives off that crazed axe-murderer feel...although a yandere end might occur if you decide to raise her flag. I'd don't recommend reading this series if you can't take copious amounts of blood.

Summary from MangaUpdates:
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....
