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

this manga is a really good and i mean what i say i thought of reading this to pass time but now wow im soo glad i came across this manga because of this manga i no longer judge a manga by the cover im likee in love with old fashioned drawings like this one and the story progression as it goes on better and better showing yuri mature into a woman and the hottie kail to show his true caring side !
i highly reccomend this manga to all shoujo manga readers !! no matter what the age !! you will not regret reading this manga smile PEACE

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.

i only read chapter one and its a nicely drawn manga but the girl....she pisses me right off. her character is just so freaking dumb! she doesnt do what anyone tells her even if its to save her own life she just gets other people into trouble!! if anyone can tell me a good reason why i should keep reading tel me now. if her personality doesnt change much then i am through with it.

I'm in love with this story. I got hooked since the first volume. This series is definitely one of my favorite manga with such great plots and wonderful characters. Very highly recommended!!! And a must have if you're are a manga collector.

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

I have read the entire thing, and it is wonderful. Not a perfect ten, I reserve that for others like Skip Beat, but definitely one of my favorites. The art isn't always the best, but the story more than makes up for it. Yes, it's not quite as good at the beginning, but the more you read, the more amazing it becomes. The romance is sweet but not overly dramatic, and, for once, it's a manga with a good ending. Sure, it's not an exciting one, but it's satisfying. And how many mangas can you say have had that? Didn't think so. Very much worth the read. I highly recommend it.
