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.

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!

Well what can I say.Its not everyday that I can read something this good and addictive.The story is great,well it gets somewhat confusing here and there but in the end it is all cleard up nicely.Its not a light read .I had to read carefully to understand which made it the more worthwhile.I like the transcending time and apocalypse motives.It really adds to the story.
Overall a must read!

It's good, really... very interesting concept and story. Although very very confusing at times (makes it lose some points for me), and the fact that I don't usually like post-apocalyptic stuff doesn't help.
But if you like this kind of stuff, you're probably really going to enjoy this manga. So I'd recommend it to you. As for me, I would have loved to read more about their pre-disaster lives. If they ever make a prequel to this, it would be totally awesome.

I pretty muched enjoyed this with its unquie story line, intruging yet blood thirsty charaters and pretty good art. But, there was some things that annoyed me as well, like the jumping back in and out though time without a full explanation of how they would deal with that timeline.

The ending was decent (loved the twist in the end), considering the fact that the story it actually really complete. If you like lots of blood, gore, nudity and awesome charaters that draw you in, you can't afford to not read.

action, adventure, betrayal, and a love that crosses centuries........ my kind of story. the art is amazing, storyline never lacking, and action stimulating. i agree that it gets confusing here and there. but it straightens out in the end. I hope there's a sequel!!!

This is very nice at first, but at the end, several characters were borrowed from Final Fantasy7(Cloud and Buster sword,even building) and HellBoy...

Well, it was nice anyway
