Tatara: He was prophesied to be the “Boy of Destiny”

Volumes 27   Written by Yumi Tamura

I highly highly recommend this manga, it has a beautiful story with engaging characters. Once you take reading, there’re so much that each volume tell, and they kept enchanting me to go on reading.
The story takes place in a future Japan, reduced to a barren desert by a catastrophe at the end of the 21st century.

Sarasa grew up knowing that her twin brother Tatara was prophesied to be the “boy of destiny,” the one who would overthrow the oppressive government and unite the people. When Tatara dies in battle, however, Sarasa realizes that it’s up to her to secretly take on her brother’s identity. On the way, Sarasa meets and falls in love with the mysterious Shuri, who may also have something up his sleeve. Together, she and her group of ragtag fighters journey across the land, attacking the many rulers and hoping to someday reach the leader of them all, the Red King.


Basara won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo in 1992.


【Devilchoco Review】
Again, I highly highly recommend this manga. I must say, I really enjoyed all of the series. This is not a typical shoujo manga, Basara is the best work in shoujo manga I’ve ever seen.

About the author





I Love traveling abroad and reading comic books.

Dots turn into the drawing.
The drawing gets connected with the story, becoming a comic book.
The 2-D world goes beyond the borders and generations to reach us, readers.
This is what I would like to accomplish on Asian-port.
