Description
A young boy is saved by a mysterious gunfighter who uses magical bullets. She is the greatest magician in the world but disappears shortly after saving him. Having fallen in love with her, he trains to become a gun fighter and ten years later, his search comes to an end but his adventure has just begun. Kurohime is a buxom witch with the power to control magical guns. She once made the mistake of challenging the gods and was cursed for her foolishness! Transformed into a little girl named Himeko, she can only regain her former body and powers when she falls in love. But finding love in a world fraught with evil is no easy task.

Unexpected...

I've just finished this manga, and what can I say...1st arc and/or 2nd was rather good, but after that it's like I was reading different manga. Well, before picking up this manga, I wasn't expecting a lot from it, I just thought it'd be nice to read something light and easy (shounen, romance, ecchi...;d), but it was beyond my expections and like I mentioned, first few arcs were really good...
And thus comes the sad part...ending or like last quarter of this manga. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say...It's so ridiculous and silly. Feels like somebody forced mangaka to destroy all the effort that's been put into this manga...It's really sad to see yet another manga with
some potential being ruined like that...
I'd give this manga 5, but let's just pretend that it wasn't ruined and all of its potential was used.

The art and story are pretty good, but there are some plot holes and other oddball issues. Don't think too much about the plot after the first arc and just enjoy the story, that's all I can warn without spoilers.

What can i say this story kick ass but ending suck balls first arc was realy cool zero is one of the best characters he is not plain and loves kurohime all the time arc 2 is not bad but it looks like the ending was somehow pushed by author or not cuz it's 17 volumes still i wanted to see more kurohime/zero action together as normal persons not as kurhohime vs zero or smt smile

In the end i give 10 cuz art is realy good Zero is one of the best male characters and kurohime better if u see it yourself smile

This is one of the mangas that I really enjoyed and would read once again just for the fun of it, although the ending felt a little forced and weird but the last page sure gaved me a laugh.

I'm a seinen guy, with ever less tolerance for normal shounen – the worldview too simple and the behavior too overblown and unrealistic to me – but Kurohime I enjoyed, with some reservations. The author knows how to balance pomp with humor, the story is actually moving somewhere, things happen to characters, which themselves are pretty well fleshed-out, and there is plenty of emotions not limited to the goddam “aren’t we nakama!!!111” thing (it has a romance-driven storyline, for one) – all of which is to say the negative parts aren't as bad as they could be.

Meanwhile, the manga has some huge selling points, and if one - abundance of very attractive female characters (aw, come on) - is easy to come by (tho' not as easy as it may seem), the other's more unusual, being is the mangaka's rampant visual imagination. I'm not a visuals guy, art is secondary to chars and narrative to me, but here, every second page is a threat to savor, offering a slew of images that are nothing if not archetypal – giant gods carrying the Moon, walking mountains, stainless steel dragons, stylizations for Mesopotamian frescoes and more in that vein. Others have noted the story is pretty generic, which is true – still plenty of fights for fights’ sake, shark-jumping and good ol’ formulas, esp. later on – but I’d say much of the effort simply went into the art instead, and most wasn’t wasted. All in all, not cliche-free, but lively, dramatic, dynamic and visually stunning, and so (possibly) worth the attention even if you don’t normally go for this genre. For the shounen world, of course, a gem.

The story starts off good and then comes the time travelling which drones on and on. Yeah I know that major background plot is revealed in the time travel arc but it was so tedious to get through it. And why are these recent chapters only 22 pages long? That's almost as ridiculous for a monthly comic as Sekirei's measly 16 pages or so. I'm still gonna retain my 9/10 rating for this manga for the moment, but I'm so tempted to drop the rating a few points.

For all those who have misjudged this manga,please read all the story and then make a comment.Every arc had it's meaning.The story started slowly but all are connected in the later chapters.It has the most similarities to Berserk than any manga i have read toned down a bit.
If you are even bored to read the next chapters then there is a synopsis on Wikipedia,so maybe after reading it you may continue with the story.

I actually really like this manga. And I just finished the first arc. All I can say is... THAT FRIGGIN'... FRIGGIN'... FIRST ARC ENDING MADE ME CRY... uuuu~*sniff* *sniff*... :'-(

And I am going to continue reading this manga. And I am GLAD that the mangaka continued this. Thank goodness. biggrin I really adore Kurohime and Zero's love. I want to see more! Hahaha.

And even if it's still not finish, I hope this won't have a sad ending! I fell in love with the manga already for it to have a sad ending! Grar. Hahaha. And I wish it's Hime and Zero. Man. <3 <3 <3

this manga has gone to absolute shit...
the 1st ark was great and should have been ended there but no...the mangaka screwed the manga by not ending it..

IMHO read the 1st ark then drop it....do not read the rest as its not worth it

Spoiler (highlight to view)
sorry....i lost interest in this. The way they axed one of the main protagonists wasn't to my liking.
He dissapeared for the rest of the show after chapter 10 or so?...It was also quite patronising to see someone else try and take his position on top of that.
Bleh, the main lead changed into this girly person who is in touch with her emotions? Thats not why i started reading, I didn't want to see that till the very end or for a very long time.

Just bad charactor change..And then axe a charactor who just made his name...Bleh.
