Anatolia Story

Welcome back everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this lovely spring weather that we’re having.

Today’s manga is another classic type of manga that I’ve realized that I’ve read a long time ago, but nnneevvvverrr talked about it for some reason on my blog. I bet I’m going to suddenly remember a ton of manga/anime that I forgot o mention after this, but it’s all good.

Anatolia Story or betterFastMangu.com known as Red River was made by Chie Shinohara and is a total of 28 volumes and is completed, so you all don’t have to worry about cliff hangers and waiting months to years waiting for what happens next. It’s about an average high school girl named Yuri who suddenly gets dragged through a random puddle by a lot of outstretched hands to find herself reappearing not only in hundreds of years in the past, but in a total different country to boost. She goes from Japan to reappearing in Hattusa which is the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia.

This girl then meets the Crown Prince of the Hittite Empire,” Prince Kail”, who protects her from the queen after learning of her situation. Basically, the queen brought Yuri to their time and place because she wants to kill her and use her blood for a curse that will kill all of the remaining princes, so that her son can take the throne and rule the empire. Don’t get it twisted though, this is the queen’s idea not the son’s.

HubPagesThis story is full of romance, murder, drama and conspiracy theories, but their were a lot of touching and romantic moments, too. The story will totally blow you away and you end up loving all the interesting characters that show up in this story (except the queen of course). Besides, Prince Kail my other favorite character would have to be, Ramses, who is a Egyptian general striving to become the next Pharaoh. This guy is not only a handsome devil, but is super smart and a total womanizer and to top it has a thing for Yuri!

(sniff sniff) Do I smell a love triangle? I think I do.

mangarock.comI have read and re-read this series over and over during the last couple of years even though I already know what’s going to happen. So, I can tell you its a really good story if your into romance, murder, conspiracy theories, love triangles, action and history. This manga has a little something for everyone. Also, I want to say that you should only read this series if you are of the mature nature because there is a lot nudity and suggestive clothing in this manga. If you are though, then enjoy to your heart’s content.

Thanks for Reading!

The Earl and The Fairy

This manga is about a girl in the 19th century who is a fairy doctor. A fairy doctor’s job is to communicate with fairies and solve their problems or solve the problems that a fairy is causing a human. This fairy doctor is named Lydia and she took over this job after her mother died.

Business wise I would say she isn’t doing so good right now. She doesn’t get a lot of cases since now fairy doctors are super rare to find and most people don’t believe in fairies. The people around her all think she’s crazy because they always find her talking to herself when really talking to a fairy. Most of the time she’s talking to a fairy named Nico who takes the form of a cat.

Later. Lydia decides to visit her father in London when she ends getting kidnapped……..twice.

The first time was by a man named Mr.Huskley who tricked her into thinking that her father sent him. Then, got tricked and kidnapped again by a guy named Edgar who makes her think that he is a prisoner and needs her help in escaping. They do escape and Edgar reveals to her that he is an Earl and that he is the descendant of the Blue Knight King.

The Blue Knight King is a guy who lived a long time ago and legend says that he ruled a land where fairies lived. He vanished one day, but left behind a treasure sword that was for his family. Edgar claims that sword was recently stolen from his family and that he needs her help in finding it.

Lydia is suspicious of him and who can blame her. Edgar fakes being a prisoner and says he’s an Earl and now he wants her to help him just like that. Soon though, she realizes that she doesn’t have much of a choice. This guy is like a gangster disguised as a handsome prince and if she won’t help him, then the chances of her living are quite slim.

This a really good story. but theirs one thing I’m confused about. Most people in this manga can’t see, hear nor believe in fairies but does Edgar have the ability to see and hear them. I say this because in the beginning he mentions the cat, but when he catches Lydia talking to Nico, he says he can’t see him.

A couple times later its the same thing over and over. So, can he see him or not? Is he gaining the ability to see or something? Its really confusing. I kind of felt like I was watching Family guy a little bit. You know when Stewie talks all the time but no one notices. But, a few episodes later they comment on what he just said making it seem like their just ignoring him. That’s how I felt I can’t tell if he has the ability to see fairies or not. If he does have the ability then is he just ignoring Nico?

That for me is a mystery and I think theirs more to Edgar’s past than he’s letting on. For example, who is this Prince Character that he keeps talking about? And what did he do to him. I’m waiting for him to appear and have a showdown with Edgar.

Unfortunately, this manga is not complete and I do not when it will be. But, like I always say if you don’t mind it then go and read this mysterious and magical story of The Earl and The Fairy.
