  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

 "'I Declare'... Eteru Magia! I won't say 'please'! And I won't let you say it has nothing to do with you! See for yourself if I'm a whipped dog or not!!"

"... huh. Interesting. Show me, then. 'I Approve.'"

Nora: The Last Chronicle of Devildom is a Shounen manga that debuted in WeeklyShonenJump in April 2004. Published in North America under Viz Media's Shonen Jump Advanced label, the entire nine-volume series has been released in English. The anime and sequel manga Nora the Second have yet to be licensed.

Nora is a Cerberus, a rare and powerful breed of Hell Hound, in the service of the Dark Liege Army. On the battlefield he's a force to be reckoned with. Off it, however, his attitude is... less than stellar. Tired of his rudeness and impulsiveness, the Dark Liege herself seals him in semi-human form and sends him to the human world, both to counter La Résistance and to get some obedience training.

The designated Kid with the Leash of this tale is Magari Kazuma, a phlegmatic boy who claims to live his life by 'a strict Cost-Benefit analysis'. Initially he only agrees to fight and ratifies his 'familiar spirit' contract with Nora out of boredom, but when he discovers that one of the main bones of contention between the Dark Liege Army and the rebels is the "right" of demons to hunt and devour humans for fun, it's on.


This manga contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Melfina
  • Anime Hair: Nora's head looks like it was patterned after a dog's body, with 'inumimi'-shaped forelocks and a long, wild pony doggytail in the back. This is excusable in that he's a demon, but how Kazuma can be a model Student Council President and have dyed-blond streaks in his bangs is up for debate.
  • Badass Army: The Dark Liege Army
  • Badass Boast: Kazuma gets one of these in the very first chapter; it becomes something of his mission statement:

  Kazuma: You said you've only seen humans on TV. So allow me to explain. Humans are at the top of the food chain because we can think and use tools. We're not powerless. Remember that, you good-for-nothing lower class animal.
