    Why ageha must died? :'(

  2. 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...

  3. lalala October 7, 2014 3:49 pm

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

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

  8. Arizel the awesomeness June 1, 2014 12:48 am

    I knew it ... I knew she would like the red king ....... Also she really did not do anything heroic she was always protected so do you think the child of destiny would be protected and wow how did the the world go from modern society to I dont know the 15 century but any way I am glad I found it ....it was very interesting

    • Chiaki June 1, 2014 5:28 am

      This is just my opinion, so please don't be mistaken that I intended to hurt or offend anyone's opinions. Basara is actually different other shoujo mangas and I like it very much. There are times when I'm just so enthralled by Tamura Yumi's mangas with their unique, structured, mind-blowing story. I love the art. The main reason why I respect this mangaka is because of her dedication and hard-work put into the mangas I read from her.
      But they are just not epics to me. Maybe epic some ways, but not something I find perfect. From time to time, I found several things so unappealing.
      i.I don't dislike Sarasah, rather sort of admire her. I understand that in order for to be strong and create a nation, one should have strong allies and that they should rely on them at times. But I don’t get it how anyone can be a great leader s/he trust his/her foes’ words so easily just because they recall something bad.i.e. Sarasah trusts Mizu no Shika’s words, when she go to Hokkaido- Abashiri Jail-and meets Kaze no Fukuro, Shuri’s doppelganger and cousin. Some may argue that ione of Sarasah’s strength is her kindness. Or that because Fukuro looked like Shuri, she felt empathetic to him. Or because that she went through so much things in a short period of time, from Ageha sacrificing himself for her to losing Hayato. Even when there is only 0.00001% of chance at all time, many successful leaders in history always had his/her mind prepared. It is not the case with her. She is too quick to trust others and when she distrust someone’s intentions (like with Asagi) she’s 94% of the time accurate. I don’t get how she is the child of destiny when she was just lucky to have (unrealistic) allies who share the same mentality (very ethical) as her and are 100% loyal to her. In real life, you need to be tactful in trusting others other than just trusting their words and action they present to you. From beginning to end, Sarasah remains the same. I don’t feel like she learned anything other than for some few common and basic leadership skills. Maybe I misinterpreted the meaning of the child of destiny which is to be kind and right all time and to have endless opportunities.
      ii.Other thing is that I find it pretty unrealistic how in the world, like how you-Arizel the awesomeness- mentioned how did the world (in the early 1990s when the author created this manga) which changed to 15th century. Why are there slaves? Why are their rulers? Why are women still being oppressed? (even Chacha was discriminated because of her gender) I get that Japan, even this era, is pretty discriminate toward females and the minority (like the Korean-descendents in Japan and non-Japanese) But how did Japan, one of the leading country economically? People’s ideas and beliefs changed to that which belonged to the feudal times. But I don’t think the change is to an extent where things go back to the (that good without learning anything) feudal times. People have witnessed all these political struggles and still give into having kings over them, exception to Okinawa.
      iii.Out of all, the thing that annoy me the most out of all what I mentioned above -not only in Basara but in all Tamura Yumi’s mangas – good people’s words are so effective that they are 91%% of the time powerful enough to change how someone feels. I believe words are powerful, but not all the time by a person to all people. The reason why I get annoyed is that the people around me and I don’t get inspired to change just because there are people who tell us this and that. Some of us did change over a period of time and some didn’t. But none ever did so quickly to change and remember those who said those words to us.
      I understand Basara and 7 seeds when the creator was still young and she, probably, had to cope with her editor’s and fan’s expectations just to put food in her table but still managed to put a lot of effort. I like this manga a lot. In fact, thanks to her, I was inspired to continue one writing my sci-fi novel. There will tons who’ll criticize my work.

    • Arizel the awesomeness August 14, 2014 5:33 pm

      I guess but that doesn't mean I was accurate and plus I like to see strong female protagonists that are not native

  9. Blarg?! January 7, 2014 6:35 pm

    Any of you just discovering this manga are so lucky. Honestly, this is one of the first series I fell in love with when I first discovered manga. Tamura's art style is not the usual "prettiness" you would typically desire in a shojo, but it suits the story well AND the story itself is wonderful. Truly, this series is a great read.

  10. Puppet Master-san January 1, 2014 2:18 am

    When I saw the guy I was like he is so the red king. A few chapters later I was like I so called it. Then when I kept hearing them talk about revenge I was thinking dude she is talking about you. But over all it was a good piece of work.

  11. Anonymous December 22, 2013 2:29 pm

    That was soooo GOOOOOD!!!!!!!

      yeah :/
      where I am in the book Im also hating asagi but if he were good hed b my fav character, cause hes REALLY cute

    • Hana-Lilly February 8, 2014 8:22 pm

      I'm at chapter 25, and hate how everyone is being fooled by Asagi. I mean wasn't he supposed to have left them after his burns healed, and why isn't anyone questioning how he knows where Sasara's (Tatara) mom was...and why do they listen to his ideas?!

  18. kyo November 24, 2013 7:48 pm

    the art is not that good but its a GREAT story!!! really! like of all things shes falling in love with the red king and there enemies but they don't hav a clue about that!!!! OMG!! Iv just started it and its REALLY interesting!

    • kyo November 24, 2013 7:45 pm

      oh.......now I know why the art isn't that good, though the story's amazing, its bcause it was made in 1991 o.o
