Description
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.

The premise of the story is both interesting and promising, but the method in which the author went about in telling the story made the manga a big let down. While there is a lot of action, nudity and sex sex SEX, I found the timeline of events confusing - maybe that happens when you have a story that spans 1000 years. I also didn't like the art - it felt gravely and made many of the action scenes indiscernible. In addition, while the manga claims that this is also a love story, I never quite felt the said love between Kurou and Kuromitsu - I think the mangaka should have fleshed out more how their feelings for one another developed at the start. I give this manga a 5 for the interesting premise.

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.
