Ever heard of Kurozuka? Mein either. But from what I see of the manga covers, it looks pretty darn kickass. Said manga which “adapts Baku Yumemakura’s supernatural romance novel about a 12th-century man named Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Kurou)” is getting it’s own anime.
The story revolves on this Kurou dude. Kurou flees into the mountains after losing to his brother Minamoto no Yoritomo – the first Shogun to rule all of Japan. History records that he committed suicide, but instead, Kurou meets a strange, beautiful woman named Kuromitsu in her mountain hermitage. Eventually, Kurou falls in love with Kuromitsu, but then realizes she conceals a dark secret. He learns that he is unable to die and continues to live for a thousand years as Japan evolves into a future society.
Sounds decent enough right? Well I’ll definitely be giving it a look. This anime is said to air right after the “Ultraviolet Anime” (Yeah, based on that Milla Jovovich movie). The Manga is around 10 volumes long, so it should atleast have a complete story, and not be another “incomplete” anime like recent things we’ve seen (Claymore, Hatenkou Yugi).
