From humble beginnings to greatness
28 January 2007 | by billebrooksSee all my reviews

Youko Nakagima's story begins simply enough when a strange blond man called Keiki tells her "I swear never to desert my post before your throne," and asks her to accept this. Initially a schoolgirl who goes along to get along, her character slowly grows into a figure of confidence and strength. Wisked away to another world, bereft of all protection except a sword and a skill-giving spirit called a hinman, Youko struggles to survive in a kingdom hostile to her very existence. Tormented by a taunting spirit monkey, Youko has difficulty even maintaining her sanity. She wonders what has become of Keiki, who seems to have deserted her, and if she will ever encounter anyone from her new world who is friendly to her.

The story of Shouryuu the King of En and the thus far incomplete story of the black kirin Taiki are also included in this 45 episode series.
