Yuri, a modern day teenager who had just received her first kiss, is suddenly whisked away to ancient Anatolia where an evil queen wants her for a blood sacrifice. Luckily, the timely intervention of Prince Kail saves Yuri from the queen's grasp. For now. Kail promises to send Yuri back to her home, but the queen's persistent schemes to kill them both, plus their growing interest in each other, keep those plans delayed.

Note: Contains a side story called Orontes
that is published in the final volume (28) of Anatolia Story, which is set in the same historic period.

(Datenshi Blue's vol 28 does not include Orontes Renka. Instead, it was released separately by ShoujoMagic.)

In 2001 this series won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo.

Because there's no such manga that I yet to call as "perfect manga" or I doubt it would even exist..maybe in heaven? However, because Anatolia Story is one of the very good mangas I've read!! I love it..but as I said I can't give 10 to it even if it's one of my most favorite mangas!

I started out liking this series quite a bit, regardless of its flaws. Now, after having read 13 volumes I feel it skipped 4 possible endings due to popularity. It simply feels drawn out now, the next plot and twist feels like the last and nothing has been resolved.

Not to mention the extreme stupidity that they use in many cases, as well as the lack of proper education the main girl has. If you know how to make one modern day thing from beginning to end you could totally change the position of your country, but does she know something as simple as a bellows? No...
