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 better 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.
This 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.
I 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!
