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.

(Datenshi Blue's vol 28 does not include Orontes Renka. Instead, it was released separately by ShoujoMagic.)

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

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.

Greatest Shoujo Manga Yet Made

I disagree with some people that complain that this series is too long. In fact I crave for more volumes because I really love this manga. If you really appreciate and love this, then 28 volumes of manga is not enough to satisfy your inner passion.

Try to read the manga to the end and stop commenting that Yuri is a weak girl when you only read the first volumes. Of course Yuri is a bit weak-willed at first because she is suddenly thrown out in the past without much knowledge and companion. But Yuri proves to be the stronger than any Hittie army could handle and became the key to Kail's succession to the throne.

The manga is epic, original and truly a gem. It pushes the boundaries of shoujo cliches.
I cannot count on how many times I've read this again and again.
This my number 1 favorite shoujo manga of all time and I would completely cherish this for the rest of my life.

I really love this manga! AWESOME!!! Prince Kail is so sweet~~ I got Kail fever for days after reading this >__<
What I don't like is only one. Shinohara-sensei didn't wanna to write about Yuri's family which she left behind. At least sensei could tell a little about their condition. I'm so curious how they manage their life after Yuri went missing...

A time travel romance manga that I will DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. I almost missed it by the first look! cuz I am just not used to the sharp faces I guess. But I am super glad I decided to read it in the end cause in my mind the drawing got really beautiful maybe cause I start enjoying the series. Yes, I think that the series is long but it's not a usual series that you can find anywhere! It's a mixture of real history and a bit of unrealistic story yes but it just makes it all the more interesting don't ya think? But there's something that kind of constantly piss me of, that is when Yuri is being super stubborn and insist on doing things her own way which in the end causes trouble for Kail. (or maybe I am just biased since I love Kail so much!! =D) Overall, this is just an SUPER AMAZING manga that you MUST READ!!

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!

I adore this manga so much. it's....just amazing. I love the story, the characters, it's just divine! it's my treasure, I read this 7 times and I still adore it. I love how Yuri grows from weak and whiny to strong and determined, and Kail has his own interesting personality but he still doesn't let it get in the way of his job as a leader to his country and people. I love this story! This is truly a classic to me, and I will treasure it forever C:

A Good Read

I love reading historical romances so I thought that this manga was going to be a really good option for me. It takes a few chapters (like three) to get into it because the female lead Yuri starts out as your typical shoujo heroine: helpless, useless, and freakin stupid. She changes pretty quickly though. She grows a spine and becomes extremely independent. She does her own thing and can fight her own battles. She doesn't have to rely on Kail to save her when something comes up. She has some damsel in distress moments, but they're not that bad. The only thing I can't understand is why everyone falls in love with her. She's kind of like Miaka from Fushigi Yuugi. Everyone seems to be gaga for her and I can't always see why, though she is way better than Miaka. The history in this manga is really interesting to read about and surprisingly accurate. Of course the mangaka takes some liberties, but they are tastefully done. I really enjoyed this and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a shoujo where the heroine isn't ALWAYS stupid.
