Description
Yuri, a modern day teenager who had just received her first kiss, is suddenly whisked away to ancient Anatolia where an evil queen wants her for a blood sacrifice. Luckily, the timely intervention of Prince Kail saves Yuri from the queen's grasp. For now. Kail promises to send Yuri back to her home, but the queen's persistent schemes to kill them both, plus their growing interest in each other, keep those plans delayed.

Note: Contains a side story called Orontes Renka that is published in the final volume (28) of Anatolia Story, which is set in the same historic period.

In 2001 this series won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo.

This manga competes with the best shoujo manga. Its length allows one to really absorb the story and plot, enjoy the character development and the romance development. All of those are really important for me!! The quality of story telling is not compromised in 28 volumes. That in itself is a great accomplishment.
I enjoyed the characters, the romance and smut content was very enjoyable as well. The story remained true to the history in the plot.
It was a very good read and I hope if you enjoy good storytelling, a good romance and a good plot, you must read this!! I really wish there were more mangas like this out there with such a mature romance, with this many volumes and such excellent plot/stortyline throughout.

I really don't remember how I came across this manga, but I must say, I'm glad I had a chance to read this, because this is one TERRIFIC manga! From the very beginning till the very end, this series had me mesmerized and hooked- I couldn't stop until I got to the very end, and I'm sorry that there was no more to read when I finished it. You can tell from the illustrations that it's pretty old manga (I think it was done in maybe the 90s?), but you get used to it and maybe even fall in love with it.
The storyline is very fantastic and realistic in the sense that if I didn't know it, I would actually have believed it to be true (okay.. maybe I'm pushing it a bit...)
I kinda wish Shinohara would do a side/after story on this, because I would definitely read it!!

Top-notch manga, everyone. READ IT. You MUST read it.
Heroine is not some stupid shoujo. At the beginning she may be considered that, but she just arrived at a brand new place in a brand new era. What else do you expect? Art is pretty good, story is awesome, characters are well-described, historical facts are accurate enough, and smut was evenly paced and not overdone (I hate that...).
I said it before, and I'll say it again. YOU MUST READ.

Be prepared! I'm warnin' ya! This manga isn't all bubbly and cliched but intense and beyond genius!
Spoilers below

One thing that I loved was the heroine ,she was ruthless,kind-hearted,humble, she is truly a gem. Not ur typical shoujo manga heroine eh?
The male lead was awesome as well, it made me feel that he was romeo,unable to live without her ahhhh the feels~
I also loved the fact that the heroine enchants anyone she meets, and there you have it! It's turned into a reverse harem!
Even if u don't like historical manga, perhaps give this one a go! U won't regret the 90+ chapters!

Starts good and goes steady for a while but close to the end it gets boring and repetetive. My suggest is you start reading and get as far as you can have fun.
It is definitely not a bad read, but because of length it gets boring. Definitely a good shoujo.

A gripping story that should not be put aside despite the quiet old art style, this is still one compelling manga. The only negative side is the repetitive plot line of
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
attempted rapes and untimely deaths from side characters
anyway this manga is absolutely worth it for shojo readers!

The story is interesting but it kind of drags on. When it ended I was just glad it was done instead of wanting to beg for more like you would after reading Basara. Also some of the ideals in the story just make it seem forced, hinder the progress and make the story less believable. Like how the king, a war hero, basically refuses to have anyone executed, including the main villain of the story. sorry, i'm going to have to call Bullsh*t on that.

anyways, don't get me wrong, its a good manga and an enjoyable read, its just not a great one. I'm giving it 8/10
