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.

First arc was meh, the Zero arc was the only good arc. The rest after that is utterly contrived, bull shit that really makes you understand that the mangaka has no idea about what the hell he's doing.

This manga was once great. I loved it. Then the past arc came.... long, convoluted and detrimental to the story (the original purpose for her going back there was pretty much forgotten as she doted on Rei and ignored Zero, the guy she supposedly loved). Then, when the end of the arc came, we find out some horrible news (to me anyway) that completely ruined any interest in the manga, making me drop it. I give it a 5/10 because the beginning up through the Shinigami arc it was REALLY good. Then it got REALLY bad, so it evens out. I'll never finish it, though.

As others have stated, the story is a convoluted one, but when it comes down to it, Kurohime is a tragic tale of romance and fantasy that is definitely worth a read. The artwork does indeed improve over time, the bad guys are easy to hate, the story will keep you wanting more, and Kurohime is just gorgeous. There's a fair bit of nudity, this being an ecchi work, but in the case of some things, such as one of the 'gods' found in the more recent chapters, it can be grotesque.
It becomes a heart-wrenching romantic tale in which Kurohime encounters tragedy after tragedy, so its a difficult read for the weak of heart (such as myself), and is actually somewhat depressing.
I would definitely recommend this to any and all readers, males and females alike.

Upon finishing the series I realize that the plot was dragged on unnecessarily and the plot cluttered, as others have noted, and the ending was just terrible. Would def reread for the first arc, however.

I wonder what will unfold
the love story and the action
I suspect that zero is actually rei just pretending
to be like his brother since the boy from the beginning
loses hope lokes like rei and he was save by kurohime
I really wanted to see the ending

seriously! I love zero and kurohime
I wonder when it will go back to the same
relationship.

both sacrifice life and memories
life and memories is almost
equal, memories is as important
as life for lovers and I always
wanted them to be happy ^-^

yeah great manga it makes
me cry and laugh!
funny yet sacrificing.

it pisses me off those
pagan gods and goddesses
who always obstruct their
love.

darn I wanna hit them with
nuclear lol yeah I really hit them
those bad guys it is normal right?
will let love succeed!

I completely agree with Molenir. The author should have ended this manga when Zero died. If he ended this manga shortly after the Zero's death, this manga would be a legend that everyone would cry and long for more.

Currently, at least to me, the manga pretty much sucks. It's nowhere as interesting as it used to be. The new arcs are pretty much lame or so draggy.

I initially liked this manga. Though the beginning arc got old pretty quick. After a bit it got to be tiresome and stale. Then Zero's arc came about, but when that ended, the story quickly became boring.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
When Rei showed up, I was like wtf. What about Zero! Forget this Rei kid. After awhile the story just became tiresome. They should have ended the story 10 volumes ago with Zeros death, or shortly thereafter. Continuing it doesn't improve the story at all.


Its not a bad manga, but it could have been a lot better. Not really worth the read.

this series has a great blend of action, romance, and comedy. 1st couple arcs were kinda boring. But when the series goes into Zero's Arc, it's awesome. People should really pick up this series especially when u dropped it because it is a great series after a couple volumes.

i have just read the volume 16. what i can say about this is it is utterly great.
Yes, the 1st arc is relatively boring and monotonous(Really?), with similar ending each time--kurohime senses the love from Zero and turns back to her original power form.
But when the story reaches volume 5, the main story line comes out that make the story boom. i was moved when zero dies.
when i began to read the 1st art, i thought the story is just like most of the readers said---monotonous and without direction. After reading up to the volume 16, i changed my mind. The first arc is not just an introduction. In the 2th arc, kurohime loses almost all her memories about Zero which are things in Arc1. She needs to fight and minimizes the lost of the memories at the same time .In the 3 arc, kurohime even goes back to the past and finds out the truth of Zero. This arc will explain what happens in the first part of the 1st arc. Moreover, the characters in the 1st arc will appear again. (Arc one is not a rubbish!!)
All in all, this manga is one of my favorites and i enjoy reading every arc of it.

I gave a 10 to it ^^

So Kurohime goes to the past to save Zero cause she loves him.. That's cool and what not, but now she's hooked one Rei wtf? Unless Rei turns out to be Zero or someshit in the future it's gonna be like sibling rivalry over who can make Kurhime their lover.
