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.

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!

This manga is trying to imply that if a man forces himself on you(force kiss, attempted rape), you will fall in love with this guy. Like how does that even make any sense..? There are much better historical shoujo manga around that are much better to me. Give this manga a miss if you cannot stand melodramatic stories.

Total 11 attempted rape with 5 different man........how worse author tried to make Yuri strong just to escape...in last seconds from rape....
..the character Yuri intentionally gets in such bad situations...
...she cannot push nor punishes..nor attempt to harm the man who tried to rape her...
....
.. she's supposedly strong. She's a Mary Sue. And this manga is supposedly a "rare, good shoujo with a strong heroine, good characters and plot".
And even if she wasn't supposed to be strong, she could at least try fighting back, not just lay there batting her eyes like a lamb.>.>
Instead of fighting against those rapist she forgives them easily as if nothing happened and becomes friend with them...what the hell---this give wrong message to society
And what more instead of fighting against the rapist she compromised with them as if nothing happend and is on friendly them--- that's wrong message to society
Two male characters raped her twice...twice!!....hell ..if they would have been punished earlier they would have not attempted second time...but hella our heroine is very mercyful and she forgives easily to any one......this type of female lead is joke/////
Attempted rape and heroines acting like this(something which enrages me) is really common in shoujo - especially smut - but Anatolia Story which actually takes itself seriously and pretends to be deep and having an empowered female lead and blahhhh, follows the same clichéd path of stupidity...>.> This makes all the abuse much, MUCH worse.
What a horrible, horrible manga. And not just because of the attempted rape.
.
.
.this implies the author supposedly sees woman as vulnerable, and weak...that's why he just made so many rape scene....and guess what Yuri character never hated any man after they raped her...this manga is stupid
.
.this give wrong message to society especially to women that they should just move on and compromise instead of fighting rapist...///

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. . .
