Normally if the heroine annoys me, but the story is good I manage to continue/like the manga. Usagi is a true exception, I have never been more irritated by a shoujo protagonist before. I didn't find her to possess any sort of charm at all. Her being a clutz and spaz annoyed me. I could only take two volumes before I felt like taking ibuprofen.

The male lead was a typical shoujo prince.

Only reccomended if you can handle stupid protagonists.

As a response to the people saying that Usagi doesn't change, toughen up OR mature; then you didn't read far enough.

I agree that she starts out a completely stupid and irritating child, but that just makes the personal growth more appreciated. Even though Usagi is completely worthless throughout 2/3 of the manga, her growth finally begins in volume 12. For me, it was worth chopping through the first 11 volumes (though they were tiring at times), because I absolutely LOVED Usagi in the last 4 volumes.

I actually finished reading this a few weeks ago, after having put it on hold for a year. At first I was only reading it because I was experimenting with historically based mangas (I still haven't grown into them --"), but grew on me after a few chapters.

Usagi is annoying. I won't deny that. Annoying as HECK. But she's one of those annoying characters that you have to like. Kind of like Light, in Death Note (not at all. I love to hate him, and hate to love him). She doesn't mature much emotionally, over the series, but I think she does grow up a little after
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ranmaru takes her hostage along with her friend. I actually quite liked Ranmaru, even with all his obsessiveness, and pitied him after she tied him up and left him like that. Not that I ever approved of the RanmaruxUsagi ship. I just thought that if she'd looked at things objectively, she could have ended up with him. Then I could have had Hanzo. If not, and if Ranmaru hadn't died, I would have taken him for myself :P


Hanzo (the main guy, not the playboy) was brilliant. But sometimes he was so stubborn I was just screaming at my netbook; " HANZOO YOU IIDIIOOOOOOOTTT!!".
And I loved his long hair <3

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an interesting plot and good looking guys. If you want a loveable female protagonist, or a smart one at that, look elsewhere.

I just can't stand her. I have to agree with slykid. (I'm surprised I even managed to make it this far) At first, I didn't mind that she was a good-for-nothing crybaby who lazes around, because I was expecting her to become more mature and toughen up as the time goes by but she's stays the same!! Sure, she's good at healing, but shouldn't she be more responsible? She causes so much trouble for others, yet she doesn't change for the better.

The art is better than I expected. There's bishies, comedy and possible plot, but the lack of character development in the series is a major turn off for me.

i so totally love this manga!!! at first i thought that it would be one of those totally sucky mangas where the girl is so stupid and the all the guys come s running to save her... but its wasn't!!! i kind of reminds me of saiunkoku monogatari for some reason... i really love everything about it, including the ninja stuff!!!

All i can say is KYAAAAAA -

a total must read for everybody!!!!

theres only one thing.... when will chapter 37 come out the suspense is killing me!!!

XD XD XD XD

<update>

omigosh!!! i read chaps 36- end in 2 days!!! and beat that im a busy person!!! i really love how it all came down...<still cant type well because of the happiness> the character amazing is so wonderful!!! i really love it!!! how the story proceeded...the depth of it all!!! this is why i love historical <btw i got the highest soc. studies grade in the whole school prob coz of this...fufufufu..>

i dont know why everytime i want to say something about this managa...it always leaves me speechless..<or typeless> i loved it really!! everything about it!! the romance may get a little bit problematic at times...their life being a bit dramatic at times..the characters being a bit stubborn at times...but i guess that makes a great story...YAY CONFLICT!!!

but i have to comment on the guys that could've ended up with usagi...

1.Goemon
actually i like him he was the supporter kind of character...but then i guess we already have mamezou for that...so basically his the third wheel..but even though his the 3rd party i dont hate him..coz hes got that likable air around him not to mention the ultimate loyalty and love and protection..the sweetest thing that he did was to reject her because of his leg thinking that he is unworthy or something...which brings us to no.2!!!

2. Hanzo...
he was such a difficult person at the start...and even though he actually liked her...he still decided that she still has to get her qualifications to marry him...talk about strictness!!i must admit that i kind of hated him...god he already loves girl what is taking them so long just get with the happy ending!!! but that was actually what bring out the best in the story all the trials and challenges the usagi must faces and the companions he must face along the way to help her mature..which brings us to no.3!!!

3. Yuki
i really loved this guy!! he was so cute...actually i also thought that she i mean he was a girl...i mean perhaps Rin-sensei actually made her i mean him that feeling while drawing her i mean him... even though he liked usagi very much she just let her go because he truly loves her...truly way down deep...and wants her to be happy and doesnt want to push himself on her....which is the complete opposite of no.4

4.Ranmaru~
even though he was a bad guy...i love him!!! yeah i really do!! he makes my stomach go weird...hes kindda bittersweet...everytime he blushes it was soooo cute!!! i know it was pretty cliche for the antagonist to fall for the protagonist but it would be nice if... <what am i thinking its already so nice!!!> but i really love him hes so sweet!!! the thing he does for usagi while shes in the cell was kindda...ya know~..and the way he made her stop...whoow that something for i guy to say <based on biology and psychology> but thing that i love most about him is the thing that he did in the end for usagi...it totally made up for all the attempted rape he made!!well I could understand that afterall he loves her and their enemies..he doesn’t know what to do!!! it "almost" made me cry...wheew he really is something.. if only... *SFX" self-smack* hey me that hurt!!!

well then about usagi...well i dont kindda got annoyed at her...even though shes whiny and a total glutton...thats because she does something to actually help and not make matters worse for everybody and when the moment comes to save her come it turns out she already saved herself!! shes always crying but shes strong and the development in the near end was the greatest!!!

its official anybody who reads manga should read this!!! you havent lived you manga reading life you havent read this yet or not going to!!!

This is my second time reading through this manga series, and it used to be my favorite one. But after rereading it, I've changed my opinion. I really liked Usagi at first, both before and after my reread- I thought her antics were cute (although her laziness did annoy me a bit) and didn't mind too much of the friendly teasing with Goemon... but then it got too much. Usa just uses the people around her... She basically just plays Goemon and gives him hope, then takes it away, and makes Hanzo jealous and whatever. Then she doesn't tell useful information when she needs to. She's cruel and just a bother to everyone. Plus, she cries all the time and has this passive-aggressive attitude- one moment she's cuddling Goemon and then the next hitting him for yelling at Hanzo. Please.
Also, it's pretty unrealistic how much everyone around her loves her. I think her and Hanzo make a cute couple, but I really do doubt "the most handsome man in Iga" would go with a girl whose frequently mistaken as a boy and acts like a child.
It also gets pretty overly dramatic towards the end. I can appreciate the story being similar to the history that it's based on and that it's not happy-doody throughout the entire series, but everyone just seriously drops all their grudges and listens to Usa ALL THE TIME-- in the power of love or whatever.
Also, Usa always has to be saved. Always. There are so many near-death moments but then just someone conveniently comes in to save them.
I've also read the entire series but, really... I can't take it anymore. I used to love it but now I see how annoying Usagi truly is. I love Mamezo and Uribou and the puppy though, as well as Goemon and Ranmaru (speaking of Ranmaru, did he really fall in love with her after meeting her once?), and I thought Hanzo was pretty cool too. Just... Usa can be really annoying and was made more "special" than she was, and I kinda hated Yuri too.

These are really just the main, gnawing flaws though... there are more flaws, but there are also more strengths too. I still really love the dynamic between Usa and Hanzo, and that it isn't as typical as other Shoujo romances. It has some really good times that had me crying and really connecting with Usa. I also appreciated Usa's knowledge in medicine. Just wish there was slightly more depth and realism to the story.
