    Kurozuka by Yumemakura Baku & Noguchi Takashi

    Since the anime starts next week, let's make this a little more known here at MH



    Title: Kurozuka (黒塚-KUROZUKA-)
    Authored by Yumemakura Baku (author) and Noguchi Takashi (artist)
    Serialized in Super Jump (Shueisha) (2003-2006)
    Genre: Seinen, Action, Adventure, Horror (a little), Mature, Sci-fi/Historical (time journey), Supernatural, Adult
    Japanese Release: 10 Volumes (complete)
    Scanlation: complete
    Age Ranking: Mature - contains heavy violence, gore and full frontal nudity

    Summmary taken from ANN and MU:
    "The manga itself adapts Baku Yumemakura's supernatural romance novel about a 12th-century man named Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Kurou). Kurou flees into the mountains after losing to his brother Minamoto no Yoritomo - the first Shogun to rule all of Japan. History records that he committed suicide, but instead, Kurou meets a strange, beautiful woman named Kuromitsu in her mountain hermitage. Eventually, Kurou falls in love with Kuromitsu, but then realizes she conceals a dark secret. He learns that he is unable to die and continues to live for a thousand years as Japan evolves into a future society.

    The majority of this story takes place a few centuries into the future where Kurou is separated from Kuromitsu and without memories. He then searches for answers to who is and why he does not die and who was the women he is so transfixed upon. "

    Note by eni:
    The story can be very confusing. It hops a lot from one time to another, between reality and dream. But the end is solid and explains what happened clearly. Also the artwork is superb. While not everyone will like the character design, the awesome backgrounds alone are a reason to read this manga.

    Just one thing: Please take the warnings (violent/gore/nudity) serious. This is no manga for a younger audience.

    Kurozuka is one of my favorites, the art is awesome and the immortal thing is cool.
    But the way the story ended left me little disappointed.

    Re: Kurozuka by Yumemakura Baku & Noguchi Takashi (v10)

    o.k. now that I had time to read through the whole thing I have to say it's not as hard to understand once you get over the first time skips and up to volume 6 or 7 it was a really good read.
    perhaps you already wait for it so here it is: the big BUT!
    Spoiler show


    oh well, next is watching the anime and to end this post let me ask something: do you (too ^^) think it could be stuff for a "real" movie ?
