Does anyone else here love this incredibly awesome yet underappreciated manga series? I'm talking about Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori, better known as Anatolia Story, by Chie Shinohara.

Yes, it is a shoujo story about a girl who is transported to another world, yet it is very much different from Fushigi Yuugi or Escaflowne. It was never animated, but there are 28 volumes of manga, and an 8 CD radio play set! I'm waiting for my copy of the radio plays to arrive on my doorstep any day now... I was happy to learn that Yuuri is played by Takayama Minami, Ramses is played by Toshihiko Seki (yay!), Kikkuri is played by Tomokazu Seki, and Hadi is played by Orikasa Ai. What an exciting cast!

I'm definitely planning to cosplay Yuuri sometime this year. Her outfits are so lovely. :love:

Any other Anatolia Story fans out there? :heart:

Yay, another Anatolia fan!
I finally decided I'm going to cosplay Yuuri at Kazecon, which is in October... 6 weeks away! >_< I'm trying to work out right now how I'm going to make her rather elaborate jewelry. It's going to be a challenge, that's for sure. :)

hi there! i love red river (anatolia story). i am planning as cosplaying as Yuri this summer at a-kon! i have two costumes ready, and am planning on making two more, the first dress she wore in book three (chapter 9) and the little tunic she usually wears.

i am also hoping to do a dance in a competition in honor of her. she is my favorite heroin.
