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.

(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.

Good one for shoujo lovers and there are many soft porn scenes in this comic too.... To me the best thing is that some part of this manga is from reality. You know, "based on true story" will always attract customers although 70% of it is actually fiction. XD


But it's good, really. Worth reading for shoujo lovers <3

it was quite long but it left nothing to ask for. most of my questions were answered and it was worth the read. (i finished it in only 2 1/2 days biggrin)

it's a mixture of romance and history and i see her actually growing. it's more believable since time is moving unlike usual mangas where the heroine is set to grow mentally and emotionally in a short span of time.

There wasn't anything to hate, on my part. I was a bit worried about whether or not i could tolerate the art since i can't stand the earlier manga art but i was proven wrong. everything was drawn simply yet elegantly. all the characters were beautiful and the story is realistic in a sense that there are war strategies and a strong sense of loyalty and honor.

all the characters were great, including all the antagonists(there were a lot). The protagonists were adorable!!!! I just loved them!

all in all, this manga was worth the read and it gives a sense of finality that most mangas don't give.

you should try it.

Basara?   
Rating: 9.3 / 10.0

I can't help comparing this to Basara. They're both so similar - both are war mangas with a strong female lead; both have exceptional art and storytelling flow.

But, I must say, the one thing I loved about Red River is the historical and educational content - I mean, I've never even HEARD about the Hittite Empire until I read this LOL, and then I was like wow... some of this stuff is actually real! And the mangaka manages to incorporate all of that so well into her story with her time travelling character too. *applaud* Thank you, Shinohara Chie-san, for making history / mythological class so interesting.

Unfortunately, it contained a bit too much fan service for my liking. Just read the title of the comment below mine LOL, says it all. Just... smh. Naked people every chapter, man, every chapter. I mean, come on, I'm not a horny teenager anymore.

But really, I'm just so surprised no one has mentioned Basara. Cuz dude, if you read this and thought it was good, then you have GOT to read Basara. NOW!

Why, you ask me? Because Basara > Red River.... hands down, any day. My opinion only, of course - you read it and then decide for yourself. bigrazz

Greatest Shoujo Manga Yet Made

I disagree with some people that complain that this series is too long. In fact I crave for more volumes because I really love this manga. If you really appreciate and love this, then 28 volumes of manga is not enough to satisfy your inner passion.

Try to read the manga to the end and stop commenting that Yuri is a weak girl when you only read the first volumes. Of course Yuri is a bit weak-willed at first because she is suddenly thrown out in the past without much knowledge and companion. But Yuri proves to be the stronger than any Hittie army could handle and became the key to Kail's succession to the throne.

The manga is epic, original and truly a gem. It pushes the boundaries of shoujo cliches.
I cannot count on how many times I've read this again and again.
This my number 1 favorite shoujo manga of all time and I would completely cherish this for the rest of my life.

So I've picked up this manga after putting it on my wishlist for a long time since I'm not sure if this is a good manga, although I've seen a lot of people recommending it not to mention that there's 28 volumes which is another reason why I'm not reading this yet since I'm not a fan of manga with long volumes. But, I'm kinda happy that I picked this up. Although at first I'm pretty irritated with Yuri defying her love for Kail, just because she's from a different "era". The another thing that I dislike is the constant kidnapping of Yuri. It's a bit annoying that she gets kidnapped every single story or scene, although she can still mingle her way out without relying on the help of Kail. Her bravery is what I admire of course! Not to forget that the people who spoils my mood by making their appearance is Urhi and that wicked Nakia. But overall, it's a good story although so many good people died. (I cried when Tito...uh, I better not say it. You guys should read it!) Since the ending is a happy one, I'll recommend this. :3
