I'm happy that I finally read the prequel to this(never knew there was one) so now things make a bit more sense. Although I put this series on hold because I CAN'T STAND how boy crazy the main girl is, she's so superficial in my eyes. Other than that, the art is beautiful, and I shall try and finish it.

I love this series. I wish there are more manga like this. Although i am biased since im a fan o the mangaka. But even if im not, i still would love this. I love hanzou! I love the historical plot, even if im not japanese! You would still find it interesting. And i love how the male lead fell inlove with usagi. I also love Usagi's little side kick. He's just so cute. Mannn i love this manga. I wish i havent read it and just starting to read it so i could enjoy it again. Definitely one of my faves. I usually forgot the proagonists' names after finish reading it but in this manga, i still remember their names.

People are being so harsh about the heroine! She isn't that bad at all! I actually love how she isn't the yamato nadeshiko-type. She isn't cute at all either lol, and that's one thing that usually annoys me about manga females sometimes--that they're supposed to be tear-inducingly "kawaii."
The fact that she is the most useless ninja ever is really endearing to me, and I think that the humor and the seriousness of the story line are really well balanced so far.

I just started reading Tsuki no Shippo today and was shocked to realize that I'm already nearing the end of volume 3 bc I was so wrapped up in it. Soooo still reading it (after all there are 15 volumes--yikes!) so I'll make sure to update my review as I go along smile

*Update (vol.6 chap.36) : I really do not like the way that Hanzou keeps saying "lose weight to be my bride." Buddy, eff you!! Rant complete.

I don't know why everyone is saying that this manga is bad and all, but I find it okay! But of course, I never really liked how Usagi act. In the beginning, I actually enjoyed seeing how she acts, especially the part where Mamezou was bullied and how she protected him and yelled at Suzune, it was very nice! But when it comes to Goemon when he was hurting, she kept on telling Hanzo about "Goemon this, Goemon that" IT'S SO FRIGGIN IRRITATING!!!!!!

I bet I would even act like Hanzo if someone I like does that to me. And after that, during the climax of the story, I feel like slapping her when she says that she wanna marry Yukimaru, JUST because she reminisces of how Yukimaru has been so nice to her and all, and she decided to yell it out loud. What a fool. So foolish and acts as she likes. I thought she has grown into a strong character after that war. Ugh. The storyline is good, don't get me wrong. I just dislike how Usagi acts like sometimes. She's strong sometimes, but then she'll fall back to being a stupid girl as well.

Mind you, I gave it a 9.5 because of the BISHIES!!!! Oh gawd. Hanzo is such a friggin' hottie. Oh right, and before you read this, make sure you read the prequel to get to know the characters like Sara and blonde hair Hanzo. But the Hanzo from this main story and the Hanzo from the prequel seems like a complete different character. I mean, how come the Hanzo in this manga acts like as if he's a very decent guy but in the prequel, he acts like as if he's the carefree type, I mean, how come he can accept the marriage of him and Sara so quickly without seeing her when in this manga, he rejects the marriage proposal with Usagi so quickly. I find this very weird. It's like a change of character between the Hanzo in this manga and in the prequel one. Whatever. As long as the ending in this story is good.

As with most shoujo leads the char is pretty annoying, but thats not my main problem with this story. it was great when it was just a simple romantic comedy with ninjas, but then the author wanted to make everything effing dramatic. DRAMADRAMADRAMADRAMA and not one bit of it was any good. To top it off the author seems to have no commitment to the crappy drama, and lets everything just go off to unrealistic good outcomes. people with 3 year vendettas, and grief over their suicided wife just up and forget their problems cuz she said so. All of the forced grief and sadness is almost totally ignored. overall from the middle up until the final 2 chapters this story is a flat out train wreck that deserves nothing short of being burned. Fortunately the final time skip was rather entertaining/romantic(great to see the little kids outcome, as well as the happy creepy glare family... those little girls haunt me...), and the beginning half was funny/sweet so it saved itself. Overall i would suggest just skimming through the last half.

I actually finished reading this a few weeks ago, after having put it on hold for a year. At first I was only reading it because I was experimenting with historically based mangas (I still haven't grown into them --"), but grew on me after a few chapters.

Usagi is annoying. I won't deny that. Annoying as HECK. But she's one of those annoying characters that you have to like. Kind of like Light, in Death Note (not at all. I love to hate him, and hate to love him). She doesn't mature much emotionally, over the series, but I think she does grow up a little after

Ranmaru takes her hostage along with her friend. I actually quite liked Ranmaru, even with all his obsessiveness, and pitied him after she tied him up and left him like that. Not that I ever approved of the RanmaruxUsagi ship. I just thought that if she'd looked at things objectively, she could have ended up with him. Then I could have had Hanzo. If not, and if Ranmaru hadn't died, I would have taken him for myself :P

Hanzo (the main guy, not the playboy) was brilliant. But sometimes he was so stubborn I was just screaming at my netbook; " HANZOO YOU IIDIIOOOOOOOTTT!!".
And I loved his long hair <3

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an interesting plot and good looking guys. If you want a loveable female protagonist, or a smart one at that, look elsewhere.

After countless chapters of Usagi's less than admirable actions, she finally begins to show some character development. But to me it wasn't enough to make up for her past behavior.

Other than Usagi's personality and the way the other characters acted toward her the only other glaring problem I had was the ending. It was kinda jumbled up and I got lost in the twists and turns. I wouldn't say this manga was a waste of my time but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to others.

Normally if the heroine annoys me, but the story is good I manage to continue/like the manga. Usagi is a true exception, I have never been more irritated by a shoujo protagonist before. I didn't find her to possess any sort of charm at all. Her being a clutz and spaz annoyed me. I could only take two volumes before I felt like taking ibuprofen.

The male lead was a typical shoujo prince.

Only reccomended if you can handle stupid protagonists.

As a response to the people saying that Usagi doesn't change, toughen up OR mature; then you didn't read far enough.

I agree that she starts out a completely stupid and irritating child, but that just makes the personal growth more appreciated. Even though Usagi is completely worthless throughout 2/3 of the manga, her growth finally begins in volume 12. For me, it was worth chopping through the first 11 volumes (though they were tiring at times), because I absolutely LOVED Usagi in the last 4 volumes.
