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.

While there wasn't much chapters about their romance, I loved Kuro and Kuromitsu, Kuromitsu is beautiful yet mysterious character, I would have loved more about Kuro's past and Kuromitsu past, but oh well, great story hope there will be a sequal ^^

overall good story line, but it was confusing to read as it went through time like 200 years in one chapter to the next. But everything is explained at the end and comes together well. Other than this the art is beautiful. Especially one chapter where the artist drew a cabin surrounded by a forest. The detail is amaaazing and I cant believe a person could actually do all that.

Most likely because the nudity/violence meter goes above even Gantz now and then, but still, sad to see that a manga as amazing as this isn't that widely known.

Ending was amazing, it made you a sublime and non-direct sense.

There are times when I thought about giving up on this manga just because it jumped around a lot. While reading, I was always confused if it was the present or the past. The best reward is that everything made better sense. Piecing every romance, bloodshed, swordplay, and darkness together at the end made this manga A MUST.

i really liked it and didn't find the time skips all that hard to follow. One thing i didn't like was all the guts coming out after some body gets cut in half (witch is all the time although i guess it is realistic i don't like it) oh and there quite a bit of sex but not after i think earthier chapter 15 or 23 but other than that the art during and out of fighting scenes is awesome and everything gets explained by the end but this is in my top ten for favorites

This story lacks depth and most of the ideas have been expressed by other authors. It has nothing to do with Yoshitsune just that it borrows his name to popularize this work. The characters almost all look the same except with different hair styles. Alot of the scenes are unnecessary and just feel like fillers to me. But some of the action scenes are just amazing.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story begins with the hero escaping and hiding in a vampire's house from his enemies. Soon they fell in love and she turns him. However before his transformation was complete, his head was cut off. In order to save his life, she took his head and placed it on someone else's body. And every 100 years or so, this mortal body would weaken and he would need a new one. But in doing so, he looses his memory and personality.

Overall, aside from the action arts, this serie is disappointing as the idea of imortality keeps changing.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the beginning, it states that they need to exchange blood, but towards the end, only drinking a drop of vampire blood would suffice to gain imortality. And there doesn't seem to be any down falls to becomming a vampire, so why not share it with everyone? Also at some point, the hero wants to die, all he had to do was stop drinking blood, yet he continues to drink it with no remorse.

Ideas are thrown in with no development or that its altered as the story progresses. Rules of imortality transformation applies differently to different characters just to fuel the story. Well I guess I'm just reading too much into this.

I really like Seinen manga with love involved in the plot. The manga fortunately it's not too long, because it's so addictive that I’ve finished this up with one day (around 7h in total) - and it wasn't a waste of time.
The only thing that pissed me a little were the sex scenes. Not the fact that there were in the manga I just missed men nudity – I loved the way artist were drawing men bodies (muscles) so I wanted to see sex between two people, not the different positions of women in ecstasy wink!
But never mind, I was great even so!

This is one of the few manga I have read, that I actually want to re-read. It also happened far more often that usually, that I was reading the chapter multiple times. You tend to miss the details which are important.
Anyway, I would recommend it to you. Nudity and blabla.. Well, everything actually fits together. After a manga like this one, you realize what shounen is and that Kurozuka isn't. smile
Is not for impatient and straight forward readers.
