In a post-apocalyptic Japan where nothing but desert spans the horizon, prophecy tells of an unborn child named Tatara who will restore abundance and wealth to the land. Tatara is born in the small village of Byakko, alongside a twin sister Sasara; but after the Red King sends an army and kills the boy, it's up to Sasara to secretly take his role and live as Tatara. Now, she must defeat the Emperor and his four sons to give the land back to the people, but she also finds herself falling in love with Shuri, a mysterious man from a hot spring she visits. Can Sasara bring hope back to her people?

Both mangas are similar with the characters struggle to fight for its people and freedom. Both main characters have to go through obstacles to survive in both love and war. They are destined or prophesized females who have to cover up their past and gender in order to survive in a world ruled by man. So if you liked Basara, I recommend Legend of Nereid (and vice versa).


Although Nereid is not that long and complicated as Basara, both manga are very similar. Both follow the story of a girl who is destinated to destroy the kingdom. Both girls should have been assasinated but survived, became stronger, started to think and act for themselves and slowly made the prophecy about them come true. Both manga are very romantic and tragic at the same time.

If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.

Red River

Red River

For no apparent reason, fifteen-year-old Yuri Suzuki is suddenly snatched out of her modern world by a pair of hands emerging out of the water. She is transported back to Hattusa, the Hittite Empire's capitol, during the time of the Bronze Age; its queen, Nakia, wishes to use Yuri has a human sacrifice. The only way Yuri can survive is by becoming the concubine to the Prince of the Empire, and Ishtar to the people of the Empire. With danger at every turn and her heart torn, will Yuri decide to stay in Hattusa, or try to find her way back home?

If you like Legend of Nereid or Red River, then you you will probably like the other. Both start with a girl being pulled out of their normal lives. Both have a historical sense and have powerful men as the love interest.
