Taken from wikipedia:


Red River is about a fifteen-year old Japanese girl named Yuri Suzuki, who is magically transported to Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia. She was summoned by Queen Nakia who means to use Yuri as a human sacrifice. Yuri's blood is the key element needed in placing a curse upon the princes of the land so that they will perish, leaving Nakia's son as the sole heir to the throne.

The story takes place during the reign of King Suppiluliuma I, at a time when the Hittite Empire was near its peak of power, rivaled only by Egypt, which was then ruled by the young Pharaoh Tutankhamen. Many of the people and events in the story are drawn from actual history, from Princes Kail Mursili, Sari Arnuwanda, and Zannanza, to battles with the neighboring Mitanni kingdom around the town of Kizzuwatna.


Red River is an enjoyable epic manga.You can find love,friendship,wars,etc.The characters are drawn nicely,although i have quite a hard time at first to distinguish the characters.The ending is good but the last few pages is somewhat sad, cause the empire disappeared

Also known as Anatolia Story ^_^

I really like this manga, but I haven't finished it. I stopped reading it a while ago since I was a bit busy so I put it on the back burner. I've been reading some other great manga so someday I'll definately finish it since it's a great story ^_^
I agree, I do find it hard to tell which character is which and that makes everything a bit confusing for me, which is very irritating lol
I'm not quite sure if I loike the Art at all

The one thing that makes this manga special is that there's so much histroy in a it...you can learn a lot about some of the events in the past!

More people should read this manga! It's amazing... I just love the historical epic element to it, and Yuri's character always stuns me. I'm not sure if I love that every single male character seems to fall prey to Yuri's somewhat predictable "ordinary-extroardinary girl" charm. But I can't help cheering for her and Kail anyhow!

it's kinda sad that yuri lost the baby...though it wasn't her fault. Wonder if yuri acutally stays in the end or is she transported back home...highly doubt that happens. But there could be a reincarnation of kail in the future. Wow so much endings. Hope they make Red River/ Anatolia's Story into an anime.

this manga rocks..hahaha..i haven't finish it yet but this manga is very nice that people should read it..
i really like the part where thay have to think how to win a war..its really interesting to know what
will they do in such situation..the fight scene is really interesting..and i really like the things that yuri do..
when she try to help people or went for a war..for me this manga is quite hilirious too..for the romance ,
well its already called a shojo manga so particularly it really obvious that yuri will be loved by every guy in that manga..
but its okey as for me i thought it was really funny...i really can't wait to finished it..hahahaha..

I enjoy how every male in the story at one point wants to rape Yuri.

Fun stuff, fun stuff.
