Description
Fuyuki's modern adaptation of Greek mythology about the love between Hades the God of the Underworld and Persephone, the daughter of Demeter. The Greek gods and goddesses now assume human forms but still retain all their vast powers. All except for high school student, Arisa who for some reason is unable to remember her past incarnation as Persephone and her life with Hades who in this present day is her classmate, Amano. But the strength of their joint destinies is so strong that even without those memories, Arisa falls in love with Amano just like Persephone with Hades hundreds of years ago. But this time, Amano is determined that he will not lose Arisa like in the tragic past. He will protect her even if it means going against every immortal being and will not yield her to Zeus who wants to unlock the secret and the mysterious power that Persephone had then and Arisa has now.

I'd give my firstborn for someone to translate this to the end.

Isn't it a waste there aren't more mangas focusing on Greek mythology? Such rich material and not even US YA novels seemed too interested in exploring it other than Percy Jackson.

Anyway, I've always loved the Hades/Persephone myth. The original telling has enough holes and variants to twist it into so much more than a horrid abduction story without betraying the roots. (Did you know "Persephone" only adopted that name - which translates roughly to "chaos bringer"- after being taken by Hades? And she ruled the Underworld by his side as an equal, unlike Hera o Amphitrite? Elysium was only created by Hades per her request. Yet other tellings note Kore/Persephone just walked into the Underworld and declare herself queen to comfort the souls there.) And, while Fuyuki Rurika didn't waste much time establishing their relationship (Persephone basically falls in love by proxy and it takes Hades about half a day to forget her old lover for her), the background to it it is so much more interesting than the bare bones we are given in the myths.

My one complaint is that the author's insistence on keeping modern-day Persephone in the dark is a real hindrance to the plot and the formula (mythic figure appears - threatens Arisa/Persephone - Amano/Hades saves her without her knowledge or ACTIVELY making her forget his involvement) gets tiresome real quick. We get a breath of fresh air soon enough in the form of Poseidon, but Hades does it's best to keep him at bay so as to disrupt the status quo for... reasons... and it takes a whole another volume for more dynamic characters (Apollo, Athena) to break into our couple cyclic bubble of bickering for no other reason than Hades passion for alienating Arisa every other minute.

It would seem later volumes speed up the pace but, alas, only three volumes were scanlated.

This is an amazing story! It actually made me read the Chinese version so I could finish it...
Sad as it may be, there were some slightly unnesscary misunderstanding between the main couple...
The story is pretty original, except for maybe the shounen cliche 'having a power up at the right time'(though back then it probably can't be considered a cliché)
oh and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
too many people dies! Like, almost every God except the main couple dies!

I also like old ones and I also love how the drawing style reminds me of red river which is one of my favorite mangas. I can't wait to see when she finally remembers her past, and when the two main leads get together. I have very high expectations and am very fond of Greek mythology stories. (love ya Poseidon) biggrin

Every chapter is kind of a short story within the overarching theme, which I really like. Can't wait to see how the relationship between the two leads develops smile The old classical style of drawing is really pretty as well. Thanks Kaizoku for sharing this great series!! biggrin
