Two girls, Kurusugawa Himeko and Himemiya Chikane, who have a close friendship that is secret from their classmates, are suddenly confronted with their fate to be the Priestesses of the Sun and the Moon. When an ominous lunar eclipse occurs on their shared birthday, they are forced into a pitched battle against Orochi and his forces, who wish for the total annihilation of the planet.

But it's not quite that simple. Himeko has feelings for Chikane--and for one of the Orochi's "Necks," Oogami Souma, who somehow has the ability to resist the call of darkness, though not without cost. What will happen as these people learn to live their predestined roles?

manga was heaps more disappointing than the anime version

For series that have completed in both the manga and anime versions, I would usually go for the anime version before going through the manga, (because I always feel that the original work in the manga is better, and it's always nice to leave the best for the last). But this time, somehow I decided to go for the manga first, and I'm glad I did. Because the plot in the manga was pretty scattered towards the end, (the anime boasted a more solid plot and character builds), so if I started on the anime not expecting much of it, and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as the manga. If I had done it the other way round, I would be so much more disappointed with the manga.

Then again, you know what? Maybe I'm just sulking like a kid because it's only two volumes' length... NOT ENOUGHHHH!!!

Best Yuri Ever!

Ok Iíll give it to you this manga is a bit everywhere but itís the best yuri I have read. Everything I have read you can see the ending from a mile away and all your hoping for is that they make the store interesting along the way. But in this one every time I though I had it figured out they pulled a plot twist I never saw coming. The whole time I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happen next Now I will admit I saw the anime before the I read the manga so I kinda knew what was going on without a lot of explanation. And I have read here that others got a little lost when the just read the manga but I never did. So I think watching the anime may fill in the gaps. But the anime and manga does differ so if you read the manga 1st it wonít spoil the anime and vise versa. smile

I had a hell of a hard time following what the hell was going on here. It was very confusing. It seemed to expect you to know things before hand. It just pulls Mecha out of nowhere, as well as a much of random Supernatural mythology stuff, and finally ends with Yuri/Shoujo Ai...
I was just asking myself what was going on throughout most of it. The Mechas seemed pretty completely random and arbitrary. The back story behind the entire plot itself seemed to exist yet is never explained in great enough detail.
It was not worth my time anyways. I'd like to say the artwork was pretty good though, and the main girls were smokin'. That is all.

This manga has one serious flaw, and that is how much stuff is crammed in so little space. The author really should have taken things more slowly and spread the content in about two times as many pages, or perhaps just cut off some things altogether. If it's about cutting stuff, I'd have taken out the mechas, since:

a) they add nothing to the plot (could have done the same thing using just the orochi enemies)
b) their designs aren't really good, so why bother?
c) their fight scenes are real messy and sometimes just impossible to understand

I'd also cut down the number of enemies, since most of them do nothing of importance anyways.

Having said that, the twists of the plot were great. They alone make it worth reading this manga. Without spoiling it for you, let me just say there are several minor twists and a couple of major ones. The first of these ones was a complete shocker, but once you get there, I just don't see how to stop yourself from wanting to get to the end. And all I'll say about the ending is that I just love stories that go all out like this without relying on the same tired old cliches. It was completely unpredictable and just great, one of those endings that I won't be forgetting any time soon, and for all the good reasons.

Very heartwarming, one of my favourite shoujo-ai manga's. It's a must read for shoujo-ai fans. ~^_^~ I have to admit, i hate most of the mecha. *smiles* buuut it's all worth it for the precious love at the end.

The mechas look like boring and uncreative. The fight scenes between them you can't even tell what the hell's going on because it's just like a pile of scrap. The plot is stupid, the love connection makes no sense, and the building of it is nonexistant. It's really lame.

Better than the anime I think

I read the manga before watching the anime and I like it much more (I don't go out of my way to say that most of the time). They are quite different and I MUCH prefer the manga. The ending is like totally different (and better) are other parts. The artwork is great and was the initial thing that attracted me to it. Giant robots and hot yuri is always a plus.

This series is composed of weak elements held together by a non-neutral ionic bond manifested in the hopes of young boys and men alike for lesbian action. And it delivers.
