One thing I can't stand about this manga is how love-crazed everyone seemed to be, especially (and unsurprisingly) Usagi. Where the actual f**k are your priorities? Life-or-death situation, and she daydreams about Hanzo. Someone's in trouble, she daydreams about Hanzo.

Hanzo Hanzo Hanzoooooo. God! I can't stand it!

I understand that its only a shoujo romance, but at least try to fit the personalities and antics to the historical context. =_= It would've been a bit better if Usagi grows up a little over time, but sadly, she just doesn't. There were sudden personality changes, but the moment Hanzo comes in the picture, everything gets thrown out the window. Usagi was downright stupid, making things difficult for everyone around her.


(Still, I found the manga charming, for reasons I can't pinpoint)

I really love this manga. I can't even count how many times I have re-read it lol. I think what appeals the most to me is one, the great romance and two, the comedy. I just can't help myself from grinning like an idiot while I read. biggrin
While I admit it isn't increadably realistic and totally inepth with every detail, I think all the important points were definitely covered. Also, I like the whole idea of a slightly unrealistic story, that is the whole reason I read, so I can escape reality for a bit. I find it relaxing. But that's just me.

All in all, I really want everyone to read this all the way through! Don't stop at the first few volumes, it gets SO much better later on! <3 ....this manga has an ending you will not regret reading 100 chapters for. Perfect ending!! ^_^ <3

First off, I have always really liked this mangaka's art style. I've re-read this series 3-4 times and I enjoy it each time.

I probably like it so much because I understand Usagi's inability to get the guy and be good at athletic stuff. She's really great at medicine but people only want her to be a ninja, which just isn't her thing - something I get. She is a little annoying sometimes, what with being pretty lazy and kind of a crybaby at times. I feel Usagi embodies the lazy crybaby in all of us. At the end of the day, she does what is necessary and takes care of those she cares about.

I also enjoyed the political intrigue and the glimpse into Japan's history. The series is pretty long so it can seem like it drags out to some people, but I thought it was pretty exciting and it always gets me hooked, every time I read 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.

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.

I really enjoyed reading this one. The story is pretty good, though it has some flaws. I don't really like harem/reverse harem stories but this one was well written. The art was pretty good too, no complaints on this part. Of course there were some parts of it that I didn't like.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The fact that she was kissing other guys besides the main character was not something I liked. Of course these kisses were either forced or out of necessity(Where Usagi needed to seduce this jerk to escape from being held captive. And also kissing the same jerk to put him to sleep(read the story for details).) She also tried to kiss this one guy to forget about the main guy(she was not aware that the main guy was still alive at that point). But the main guy was not spring chicken either(he kissed at least one girl before meeting Usagi(the main heroine of the story), so I guess it somewhat evens out. I am the type of guy that believes that there is only one man for one woman, that is why I am not a fan of harems, these plots were not something I enjoyed.


Well, the story has great romance, good amount of comedy and drama. Though the comedy is not that great, but good nonetheless. The ending is one of the best I ever read, I don't know why one of the comments says the ending is bad, it ties up everything nicely and we even get to see a bit of the future for the main characters.

I am taking 1 point away for the reasons that are enclosed in the spoiler tag but still, give this series at try, you will enjoy it.

The actual romance was SOOO slow to begin but once it did it was cute...But then BAM the story went on fast forward mode. War broke out and everyone died? Usagi became pretty and independent? OH WAIT thats a lie!!! Like what the hell was that. Dead people just popped out of nowhere, some became saints, etc for no other good reason than "tra le da le da" I have a few pages left so lets just draw something...AND Everything just ended with a pretty bow?!? UGH so basically it was cute, funny, but after the middle part it was just some plain bad story development. BUT GOOD READ IF YOU BORED!!!

So I finally read the entire manga and I am glad to say that it is awesome...Usagi matures so well in the last part of the story as does Mamezo, however does stray away from the lightheartedness that it was when the manga bean.

I somehow read 35+ chapters but I can't fathom reading 60 more. Way too long and drawn out for a comedy shoujo. While it is entertaining at times, it's lacking a serious main character and plot line. Definitely not a read that will make you think, nor does it feel well crafted and thought out. The female lead is only "hard working" to combat her perpetual laziness and the mild character progression is in no way profound or applicable to real life. She's dopey and child-like through and through. Additionally, many of the story's characters are flat and just shift around to however the plot was written but dont act as believable individuals.

The plot does no one justice. It's just a bunch of arcs one after another of her meeting a new person, usually a hot guy, only to prance around trying to become wifey material with them. Many adventure manga have similar arcs but in the least still have something deeper tying things together. Usagi's betrothal is the only thing standing.

Regardless, it's a matter of preference of what you want to read, so if you're looking for something fun it might be for you.
