Wow. When i first found this manga four years ago, i was put off instantly cause of the art. It looked unappealing, like it wasnt my kind of cup of tea hence I left it and didnt read it. Now when i've ran out of manga's to read and was desperately searching for one this manga's name popped up. I had nothing to lose so i've read it... and boy was i wrong! It was nothing everthing i didnt think it was.. and more. Anyhow I'm truly glad i've read this manga. Somehow it reminded me of Red River. Am I the only one?

    Watched the anime of this and was so into it that I had to read the manga straight away!! Btw the chapters are off

    Muratake and Tamon are the cutest people!!!!

  4. riz September 6, 2015 5:50 pm

    this manga is just beautiful. I love that there are extra chapters at the end that showed what happened to everyone ahah

  5. MangaMay July 28, 2015 9:30 am

    I'm so sad it's over now!! That was, honestly, one of the best manga series I've ever read. It was predictable in some parts, but it always made the story unpredictable in a way that still followed the story steadily so it didn't seem random. I'm glad I decided to read it though. Onto the next series!! (^o^)/

  6. Saki July 22, 2015 2:39 am

    Amazing story...love it. best story ever....thank you

  7. aya louafi July 9, 2015 10:39 pm

    I start reading this manga yestrday I did not like the art actuallt it's so bad
    but i liked the story allart .it's a good manga to read .it remember me in red river (≧∀≦)

  8. Paula June 14, 2015 1:51 pm

    Right now I'm at chapter 50 and I've noticed that people actually die in the name of the red king, but they are always miraculously saved by Tatara or the likes of him when it comes to the Blue Kings misdeeds or Momoroi's crimes. I like Shuri better than Tatara. I wonder how the story will develop, but right now I hope Shuri gets Suou back.

  9. Rina June 13, 2015 8:36 pm

    Why is every chapter in here TWICE?!? It's annoying!

    Loved the manga btw, was planning on reading it a long time ago but didn't get to it. Then started with the anime, which was good but too short. Thank goodness the manga is completed^^

    I like the book but why do the chapters go all over the place??

  11. namjoon April 26, 2015 7:20 am

    as someone who also draw, i really think the art is great and it creates an aura that fits the story, although it is indeed a bit messy at the beginning, but it gets better and i get to like it much. tbh i think most of those usual shoujo mangas are the ones that i think has no originality in drawings. and i wont even start with the story, this is really great. i was about to give up looking for good mangas since i read most of it already

    • フルッピ April 26, 2015 8:26 am

      then you should start reading 7seeds after this ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
      tamura yumi sensei work is always awesome.

  12. watever April 8, 2015 11:14 am

    oh god, i can't believe i just read this awesome book now!
    i wonder why everyone has a problem with the drawing? it's cool just as much as the story! but i feel so saaad when a character of this story is dead. And well, i wonder who is this destined woman that ageha supposed to meet?

    My cousin read this YEARS ago when she came to visit and told me it was amazing. I took a look at the first few pages and was like "nope" cause of the art. Oh god did I miss out. Couple years later, after reading all the manga in the library (XD true story) I decided to pick it up. I grabbed the first 15vols. At home I had it stacked up by my bed and I swear I must have gotten up only 2~3 times before I finished all of them and was begging my mom to take me to the library again XD To this day (5years later) it is STILL my fave manga. Along with Red River, Tokyo Ghoul, Judge, Gravitaion, and Breaker. Weird combo I know X3

    I started crying when Kagero was shot

  16. Moonfairy December 8, 2014 1:19 pm

    Does the story have a happy ending?
    I'm currently in chap22, and its starting to get lot of twists, I don't really like sad stories, so plz tell me if this one ends well ( like "shuri and sarasa lived happily ever after" some thing like that)

      March 9, 2015 6:21 am

      i don't know if this is good enough for you because i don't really like spoiling endings but all i can say is that it was very satisfying

    • Ultimate Fangirl
      March 31, 2015 8:19 am

      It's a war so there's going to be a lot of tragedy at parts but if you are able to stay strong and get past it I assure you will be crying tears of joy by the end.

  17. noname October 8, 2014 1:25 pm

    Why ageha must died? :'(

      January 17, 2016 9:41 pm

      I know, I just cried so much when he died I could barely keep reading.... but I soldiered through.... Ageha...*sniffle*

  18. m0k0u October 7, 2014 10:25 pm

    I already read this a few years ago... At first the art really bothered me, so much that I wanted to quit a lot of times... but I continued anyway until the story became so amazing that I didn't care anymore. The art gets better later on, though.

    I'm usually not into shoujo but this one definitely has a lot more substance than the typical romance...

      Haha I so with you there. My cousin read this YEARS ago when she came to visit and told me it was amazing. I took a look at the first few pages and was like "nope" cause of the art. Oh god did I miss out. Couple years later, after reading all the manga in the library (XD true story) I decided to pick it up. I grabbed the first 15vols.

    God! This was so good manga with adventure genre!! Love it 5 thumbs

  20. Psyche... September 27, 2014 3:19 pm

    what chapter sis shuri and sasara knew they were enymies? please tell me pretty please.. i watched the anime already of this but it did not get to the part were they knew hey were anymies .. so i really want to read the part were they found out..

    • natsuhi
      March 9, 2015 6:23 am

      i don't think it would do the manga justice if you just read from the chapter where they found out they were enemies. I suggest reading it from like chapter 20 or somethings.
      However, if you must know at all cost no matter what it is......the chapter is 55
