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?
Both manga are about a Japanese girl that gets transported to another world. There are some people after the heroine since Yuri is to be used as a sacrifice by the Queen while Noriko is the person who will awaken the Sky Demon. Fortunately the heroine gets saved by a handsome guy who takes her under his protection.
The plots of Red River and From far Away are definitely alike. Both have the lead girl, who gets whisked away to a land far back in time, where they speak a different language. Both get saved by a prince or warrior, and find that they play important roles in the place they are now in.
They share similar themes: Shoujo, Romance - but primarily the theme of 'person in a strange world'. Both deal with a japanese girl who is transported to a different era/world and she meets a handsome guy who protects her.
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.

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?
Basara and Red River are very similar – both set in historical background, both main female characters are considered saviors destined to change the country and both stories will not let you stop reading until the end. If you liked one because of the interesting plot and passionate love, you will definitely like the other.
Basara and Red River are both feature a historical rural setting where the characters are striving to live through each day. There are overwhelming obstacles the main characters must face to try and make their love for each other succeed.
In both manga the heroine gets transported to another world and ends up falling in love with the guy who saved her when she first arrived. She ends up missing her chance to go back to her world and while she's stuck there she agrees to help out the emperor in Fushigi Yuugi or the third prince in Red River, at least until she finds a way to get back to her world.
Female character gets transported to another world/another time. Female character is the target of devious plots is in need of protection...enter in sexy guy(s) who keep her safe from harm. Historical fiction/romance/love triangles in both.
Both story involves a modern heroine being transport to ancient worlds and become "goddess" to the people there. Both have plenty of romance triangles with royalties and both are full of historical references.
Both these series are about a girl that are transported back in time. Both of those girls are seen as a God by the people because they know things that hasn't happened yet or things that will happen or they know how to build things. The two main countries that the focus are most on is Hattusa and Egypt in both of them. These two series are very similar to each other, but there are still enough things that makes them different so it won't be boring reading the other one after reading one of them. If you enjoyed one of these two, then I strongly recomend you to read the other one.
Both manga are from the same mangaka and share some similarities beside the character designs. The beginning is similar with the heroine living a normal life until her life is targeted and she gets separated from her family. From that point on she has to keep fending off those who want to harm her while constantly whining that she wants to get back to her normal life.
