Description
History isn't Tokidoki's strong subject. He's even forced to do make-up work at a high-tech history museum to bring up his failing grades. After losing an eye to a virtual reality monster in an Edo-period simulation, he finds himself unable to leave the game. Could it be real?

Beautiful Art, Beautiful Plot. Simply amazing.

I do agree with the comments that the plot at times can seem quite confusing. It's one of those plots that fall gradually into place like a jigsaw; as a reader you are given piece by piece to fit into the whole frame. Still, I think it was perfectly clear to understand, and the more you read, the more you realise the hidden meanings of previous chapters.

Artwork is simply beautiful and it's very well constructed. I also think that the characters (every single one of them) are unique and very realistic. They have their faults like everyone else and it just makes everything so believable.

Although the series is quite comic, it has also has a sad/serious side which I love... The plot really does just get better and better. If you like mysterious plots and figuring stuff out, you'll love it!

Some translation issues

I'm glad I watched the anime first.. there are a lot of translation issues with the scanlations, especially in the early chapters. Mostly i'd say it's very disjointed and literal at times, which can really add to the confusion.

Confusing

This story isn't bad. I like it. The drive of it is the mystery, which keeps it going plenty well. The setting is good, a boy sucked into another time, and the reason why the protag is special is acceptable since it's not one of those "You were born with an obscenely unnatural and needed power". The thing that I don't like though is, THIS IS CONFUSING. I've reread all the current chapters several times over, and there are still things that I don't get. Time jumps are unnatural and there are too many things that simply don't make sense. Overall, it's good but coonnfffuuussinnggg

Confusing..... but good

I must admit, even with its good plotline, original character personalities (Toki is the first 'hero' i've read about who constantly says "i dont wanna" and somehow make its seem convincing and realistic), awesome historical setting and all that other stuff but WOW is the plot confusing.... and it makes it worse that its slow at the same time. For a full volume there it was just a drawn and stretched out ball of pure confusion. I don't think i've ever been so happy to see a 'plot-recap' at the beginning of the next volume

If you can figure out the confusing bits, read the plot recaps, and do whatever it takes to figure it all out, it is a definite MUST read. And even if you can't figure it all out, the art and the characters make up for it bigrazz

The art is brilliant, the characters rather fun and the historical and mythological refrences make a japanophile like me drool. The only thing keeping me from giving this manga a perfect 10 is... well... the plot. I realize the a twisted plot is rather fun, and can make a story really interesting... but there are times when I swear this plot takes turns it really doesn't need. The cuts between RL and VR are kinda choppy and I'll be d***ed if I can find a start or an end to flashbacks. True, I'm still avidly waiting for the next scanlation... but all the time inbetween will be filled with me trying to figure out the plot like a Lost fan.

quite an artstyle

The art of Amatsuki strangely reminded me of a Sengoku Basara fanart site I visited, so I thought maybe the artist was one and the same. It turns out that Takayama Shinobu did work on some doujinshi, though it was not for Sengoku Basara, but for Naruto. Because of this, you can bet that Amatsuki does have some BL elements to it. For a person unfamiliar with Japanese history, Buddhism and Asian folklore in general, this series will indeed be very confusing. I'd recommend reading this in original Japanese, if possible (because hopefully then it would make more sense. . . )

This is one of those series that's really slow to get moving, but it does answers some questions at certain moments. I guess if you don't have the patience, progressing through this story is like going through a tar pit. Nevertheless, Amatsuki is a good series for fangirls.

It seemed interesting enough, and the art wasn't bad, but I couldn't understand what was happening after the first few chapters. Things just didn't make a lot of sense. If you're good at figuring stuff out or you just don't bother, then go ahead and read it, but...

Confusing Plot, Interesting Characters

I find the story really confusing. It's a pretty wordy manga and i find it hard to follow the names. But the characters are hilarious, and love the 3 main characters. They really show alot of personality (so their relationship is worthy to follow).

Love this series - but I can see how people can hate it pretty easily. It's a little slow in places, sometimes confusing, but it all works together in the end! It's a definite read for people who like to try and figure what's going on at the same time as the main character, if that makes any sense.
