Description
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 Renka that is published in the final volume (28) of Anatolia Story, which is set in the same historic period.

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

Whenever I read a shoujo manga, I normally read it for entertainment, no matter how trashy it is. It's like buying one of those crappy books at the airport.

Red River, though, is nothing like that. It is completely amazing. Likeable characters, amazing and original plot... it's like Shakespeare compared to all those other trashy books. Here's one manga you just don't read for entertainment, I'll tell you that.

It's the true roots of shoujo. Forget Fruits Basket and Vampire Knight - you MUST read this. I've read a lot of mangas [a LOT] and this one just simply stole my breath. It's a real page turner.

It's a lot like Basara, which is good, because Basara is also an amazing manga.

Point is... go read Red River. You will NOT be disappointed.

This is one of the best manga I have read and I have read a lot.I just wanted to say this.The storyline characters,plot...Its a great experience.I`m still om deep shock after reading the most recent volume.And the thought that I have just read a little bit more than a half of it leaves me deeply craving for more.
It reminds me alot of Basara -another great manga.I just like the historic setting and keep wanting to know how it all will look when the manga ends.
The art is great-very detailed and it has that "old" style which is a big plus with me.The plot set up in ancient mezopotamia territory is a big turn on and it progresses smothly.The char development is worth praise.THe overall experiance is very high.
READ IT!! You will NOT be disappointed.

A great historical romance. Although the story could have ended at several points, it is still interesting enough to keep reading. The main character does not seem to have a big conflict between "modernity" (modern technology and politics) and the historical setting, so the fact that she is from another world seems pretty pointless. Still, a great read!

It is a good story. The art is good, the author knows what they are doing.

It needs to cut to the chase. There are too many problems coming up.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I went to the twelfth volume before I decided to just cut to the end. I did not miss anything too big. The 16 volumes that I have skipped are not missed. It really goes long.


Would be 10/10 if it wasn't so dragged out, but if you enjoy long stories then this might be for you.

This was an excellent series and I enjoyed every last volume, The ending was great as well, ok it was overly smutty but even that was ok to an extent. I don't agree with the comments saying Yuri was useless as I don't believe so, she may have been brash in her actions, but she did always have a reason!. I actually liked Ramses biggrin and secretly hoped they would actually marry, but knew it would never happen.Every character wether bad or good had a role to play and they done it well. It took me 2 days to finish 28 volumes but it was well worth it so I give this series 10/10. give it a try and if you disregard the smut if you're not into it you won't be dissapointed!.

I think this is one of the best manga ever! ^^ The story is about the girl came from future and living in the past with the prince Kail! As I think, this manga is so romantic! There are a lot of characters with different personalities! Sometimes, there are some deaths, tears and sad scenes that make me cry!

In my opinion, sometimes, I dont like the the main girl, Shuri.... but, whatever, it's a good manga that I suggest your guys read it ! ^^

My vote is 10/10

this is one of my favorite mangas. the historical setting is intriguing, and the romance between kail and yuri is great. thrown in are an evil queen who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, a couple of guys who fall for yuri and keep kidnapping her xD, wars, a baby, and devoted followers, and there you go!! instant success. i can't wait to read more. . .
