    shes not even extraordinarily beautiful, just cute. and yet they are all crazed and want to rape her. even towards the end, two women HAVE to look at her boobs. lol

    its a beautiful manga, but it would have benefited from less people loving the heroine.

  3. Mimi August 16, 2016 7:24 pm

    Without a doubt the best romance manga ever published (possibly the best manga period.)

    I have a lot to say about this, and it can have spoilers to the mange! so you were warn, and keep in mind all what I have to say is my personal opinion - personal! you don't have to agree with me. as always, I like to complain about things. and I really picky, but I also say some good things.
    First point, the main character was a little more balance and well build in character from most I seen. at last in shoujo anyway, and I like that the main character actually have Consequences after doing something stupid. you would think most mange will put consequences to their character's, but nope. most of them won't do it. what is kind of stupid but well that's how it is. the problem with this is that most consequences will only happen to the main heroine and not the main villain, like nothing will hurt the villain, Nothing! no matter how many people she killed, or how much evil she is, nothing will happen to her. even in the end, her son can't even kill her cause of Keil shitty system. yeas I get that it is a good system but the fact is she never die!! like really?! are you fucking kidding me?!
    Another annoying big thing in this mange is the kidnapping that happen TOO MANY TIMES! like every week Yuri is going to get kidnap by some guy that full in love with her and want to or fuck her or to marry her. What become really annoying after a while. it's like the Author didn't have any other idea to keep the plot going other then kidnap. what make me want to stop reading this mange many times! and the gang of man that full in love with her and find a reason to kidnap her, it's like there is no other good women to love other than her in this time what was really stupid. lat's see Kiel, kiel bro, the prince of darkness, Rusafa, Ramesses. that's already four man that kidnap her at last once from different reasons. and most the character's that died were my favorite Nino, Ursula (she grow so much has a character and was much more fun to see), Rusafa like die for nothing cause her son was going to kill her. Nino death at last show Yuri not to be so reckless, but Ursula died for nothing! it didn't do anything to the villain and it didn't change the fact that someone else killed the king anyway. so it was pointless and annoying to read. and the scene that Kiel and Ramesses fight in the middle of the war was the most funny, stupid and pointless fight I have ever seen! XD and no there wasn't any sense in this scene's. but it was hot to see them fight naked, soo hot! I could ship them, but I won't do that to Kiel poor guy XD and the most annoying guy in this mange goes too Ramesses, I didn't see such annoying, disgusting behavior obsessed man for a long time. well I did seen his type that just like to use women has his tool before, like Koga from inuyasha, but unlike Koga that change and learn something and become lass and lass into her. Ramesses will never get the clue that she don't love him, he will use anything to use her like a tool, no matter what her feelings is. even in the end he wanted to get to her family by using his son to marry her kids, which was stupid but whatever.
    so I really won't have mind if he died! if the Author think I care about him cause of the claim he is a "Good leader like Kiel" which technically is bullshit, well it didn't work for me. I didn't hate the prince of darkness as much I hate Ramesses, what is not good at all. has for Nafretiri that show up has much more of a bitch then Ramesses, ohh please, she wasn't that bad like this mange make her be, Ramesses wasn't much batter then her. he was in the same level of her, annoying asshole that should just go away! has for the main Villain, I appreciate the fact the Author try to make us feel a little bad for her, but I didn't care. no matter what her story is, I just wanted her to die already what didn't happen case of some justice shit or whatever! that was annoying has fuck! even her son could not kill her. oh not forget, the extra chapter there Yuri is twelve and look like a kid 14-15 - was totally bullshit!! sorry Author san, but there is a limit of how much stupid a story can be, and don't expect me to believe Yuri never get a little older after so much time cause it's bullshit!
    Other than that, I LIKE how Yuri grown up has a character and become stronger and much more able to fight then Kiel, you can't find it in those mange usually. and that she actually get pregnant from unsafe sex, again, I seen many stupid mange's that the guy can have unlimited and unsafe sex with the girl, and she NEVER GET PREGNANT. what is stupid, but this mange actually more realistic in this part from soo many stupid mange's I seen around. (⌒▽⌒)(⌒▽⌒)(⌒▽⌒)

      first i agree with moust off the things you sayd, you have the names spell wrong, i got confussed couple of times... but i juts feel the author just wanted to make us see another point of view...personally i think she write it quiet wonderfully.. as i never see another manga , thats has such a complete story... with queen dowager nakia not dying or having any punishment made to her is just how things are in real life... they just never get punished for doing such horrible things... it just prub that kail and yuuri are nothing like her.. and that they will change the course of story... as another tip i do not think things be like that on egypt either, i just think that these way off telling the story suited better for the author to use..i enjoyed it much more these way.. shows more then one aspect to the story.. make us think and doubt about the truth in the story we know.. at least a bit..i doubt i will ever read another story like these one..and i certainly do not want to encounter such athing.. these is a pure and unique story.. and is worth for every one to read, as for a personal point of view.. i think i didnt liked that tito wasnt expecting her on the gates of the nergal.. but all the others did.. even mali was there.. but not tito, that was something i missed there.. but i do respect ur point of view, and agree with moust of it

    This manga is soo amazing and the way the author is so knowledgeable about the history and how everything played out was simply superb! It was the best when i could look up these ancient people and make a connection that the author had drawn out in his works and how he tied everything back and forth. The only time iI got confused was when all the kids came in mostly because there were so many and the names were hard to pronounce and keep track of but what acn you do its history XD hahah loved this so much <3

    I seriously hate her hair -.-" and the naked fight between Kail and Ramses was so childish I was lmfao. There's no point mentioning everything but there were so many details I questioned and thought could have been changed even. Overall this manga wasn't the best but liked it- 3/5

  10. Amour June 4, 2016 6:15 am

    I like the story very much.. once you've start reading it you'll never get bored and the only thing you want is to finish the story nothing else...

    If anyone loved this manga as much as I did, try out 'from far away' it's really good and has this same situation but instead of Egypt it's a mystical world :)
    5th time reading this never gets old.

    Wait did kail really banish yuri?
    It does not seem like he would do that
    But how did yuri die and what happen to kail and the rest afterwards?

      No she was not bannished. Some sadistic translator translated it wrong. Yuri unexpectedly died before Kail which made Kail suffer a lot a die 1 year later, leading to the empires ruin. Read this :!!-Neither-the-son-nor-Kail-have-banned!!
