Walking home from school one day, Noriko is innocently caught up in a terrorist bombing. Rather than being blown to bits, she finds herself transported to another world; a world in which darkness seems on the rise, as its powers desperately search for a being known as the Awakening whom it is said will awaken the Sky Demon. She finds this new world to be dangerous and overwhelming, and Noriko has little choice but to throw her lot in with the mysteriously powerful man she encounters upon her arrival. The enigma of this world and her role in it will gradually unfold, but first things first: Noriko must learn their language!

In 2004, this manga won the 35th annual Seiun Award for best science fiction comic.

It was ALRIGHT. that's about it. The drawings was just OKAY. Nothing extremely special. Similar to Fushigi Yuugi. The romance was lovey dovey without being too heavy. Storyline is unique, but really didn't interest me as much. Not a must read for me, but more for people who enjoys fighting and minimum romance.

Love this type of manga so from the beginning it was already worth half the points, then the arts is splendid and the storyline is awesome... 10/10. Worth a reading, recommended for everyone :]

I thought it was okay. At times I was addicted, at times just wanted to get it done. It was pretty good. One of the main things I had a problem with was how corny it got at some points. But... all in all, read it just in case it suits your tastes.

Great story, the first couple volumes were really addicting. The character development was pretty good too, the only downside to the this manga was that it was a bit long and slow sometimes. But, other than that the ending was very satisfying and all in all it was a good story.

This is a great story for hopeless romantics who love to delve into an epic world full with hot bishies. The character development is slow int he beginnig but eventually are very heartwarming. The story is really addidictive after the first 3 or 4 volumes. The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because the heroine and hero roles were pretty stereotypical and a little more romancing would have been perfect.

I picked it up because I liked Chiho Saito's work and red river but this one's matches all of them and the best thing in this manga is actually the heroinne. I don't know why but I totally adore her also the other characters are really interesting. It's simply one of teh best manga's out there

This is one of the best manga that I've even came across. It has fantasy, action and romance. I got hooked from the beginning. And the ending is just great. It won't leave you wanting for more. It's definitely a manga worth taking a chance.
