The story is wonderful. It has all elements of a story mixed in a very entertaining way. Yuri, the heroine is confident and cool. Character development is strong in the manga. Yuri transforms from a naive teenager to a fearless girl. There are a lot of villains in the story and background stories explain why they have turned out to be so. Both Yuri and Kail are very realistic. They can be very strong and very emotional at the same time. Their love story is beautiful as well. They don’t restrict each other’s freedom but in fact, respect each other.
The art style used in the manga is a very old one. It is quite average when the story goes on in Japan and gets better when ancient Egypt enters the plot. Some drawings have a lot of details and the mangaka has done a great job with them.
I love the manga (Red River) for its romance and characters. So, I would definitely recommend this for readers who love historical romance stories.
