From Izumo no Ryuu:

A tale of obsessive love and constant pursuit, told over a 1000 years.

Escaping from a brother who had just ascended the throne, Yoshitsune, along with his servant, comes across a house in the middle of a desolate mountain. Oddly enough, only a young woman lives there, who seems to possess a very dark and ominous past.

This long journey of more than a thousand years focuses on our main protagonist Kurou. It can be somewhat confusing at the beginning, but once you understand the plot this story can be quite entertaining.

The main thrust of the story goes like this: Kurou meets a beautiful woman by the name of Kuromitsu, and begins a relationship which transcends life and memory. Kurozuka tells the tale of a journey undertaken by immortals, and those who chase after immortality.

The majority of this story takes place many centuries in the future, after Kurou has been separated from Kuromitsu. Having lost almost all of his memories, Kurou seeks to understand why he cannot die, to rediscover his identity, and to find the woman that haunts his dreams.

This is one of the few manga I have read, that I actually want to re-read. It also happened far more often that usually, that I was reading the chapter multiple times. You tend to miss the details which are important.
Anyway, I would recommend it to you. Nudity and blabla.. Well, everything actually fits together. After a manga like this one, you realize what shounen is and that Kurozuka isn't. smile
Is not for impatient and straight forward readers.

yea lots of frontal nudity, but overall its a good manga with lots of action. i really want to see more of the love relationship between kuromitsu and kurou. the first and second volume are the best so far. so far its really good.

great manga.

Somewhat a mix of blade of the immortal, blame, with vampire stuff.

Little confusing on the start, but gets better after.

I'm not into blood and gore, however this manga is an exception. perhaps because there is a sort of romance behind the story. definately a must read.

very nice and bloody I haven't gone through a lot.. but I still think you should read it.. very gory and explicit.. so don't go crying if you don't like it.. very interesting thing about vampires back in the day..

also the romance being in this kind of story is a bit odd..

A promising if a bit strange manga about vampires (no, really). It's a bit slow (after 4 volumes not much has happened) and quite explicit.
