Description
Except for her red hair, Youko Nakajima is a typical, obedient Japanese high-school student. Her life is fairly ordinary—that is, until Keiki, a kirin in the guise of a blond-haired man, tells her that she is his master and must return to their kingdom. When he mysteriously vanishes, Youko is left alone, confused, and wandering through a foreign land with nothing to help protect her save a magic sword and a magic stone. When Keiki suddenly appears at Youko’s school, little does she realize that her life is about to change. Lost in a strange land -- without a map -- and demons on her trail, Youko begins her quest for both survival and self-discovery.

I've seen the Anime and its very good. Even if some stuff has an odd pacing and feels out of place... Then read the novel and all made perfect sense and wished they followed it more close on the anime. Still the Anime got a more EPIC feeling to it.

Then discovered that there is a manga out there and nobody is translating it.... which is surprising considering ho popular and amazing Juuni Kokki is... Plus so many awefull manga gets translated and double/triple translated everyday...

Anw, please try to read this manga or the novel! it is amazing and one of the best out there.

The story is great and the characters are very well thought. The author has developed her own world based on several chinese/japanese mythologies and the plot works really well. There are numerous sidestories and developments between characters and plenty to add up between all the countries. One of the best developed fiction settings/universes I've ever seen (like lotr, star wars, star trek, etc).

I read the translated novel online and the reading experience wasn't great but don't let that stop you from reading this and watching the Anime.

In the anime the beginning is off putting since the protagonist is irritatingly meek, but give it a few episodes and the development will be mind blowing. The story takes place in a fantasized, mythical world, that is throughly crafted. The events in this story mainly revolve around politics. The heroine, dragged into the worlds politics, is forced to realize her faults and must seek out change. I've no doubt that you'd be rooting for her when you are halfway through.

Sometimes the author focuses too much on explaining the politics and she ends up deviating from the main story. On the bright side, this shows how well structured the world works; there is balance and reason. There is no overpowered individual.

This story's greatest quality comes the authors ability to communicate the lessons the characters have. The value of the protagonist's conflicts are so clear that you cannot leave the story without gaining some insight on how to be a better individual yourself.

Twelve Kingdoms is one of my favourite novels.The story is great, the characters are awesome and I just love the setting!
The translations from Tokyopop are pretty poor, but don`t lose hope, because some awesome persons translated it! You can find the website where you can read and download the novel in english easily on the internet (!google!).
If you have problems finding it just message me and I send you the link.

Have fun reading it!
