Yukari, at the tender age of 17, is a renown Edo period novelist who claims visions of Yoshihara during the Edo period gush from his heart. After meeting Mahoro, a girl he swears he knows and has met before, Yukari finds himself falling asleep and waking up in the Edo period as an Oiran. The past and present collide in this time traveling romance.

Seeing as this series lacks a review here, I decided to write my little thing on Yukarism. This won't be the most comprehensive review as I feel that giving people an understanding of the series is more important than presenting my own opinions
Yukarism begins in modern-day Japan with our eccentric and wondering male protagonist, Yukari Kobayakawa. He's a 17 year old author who writes novels about the Edo Period. The curious thing is, he doesn't research the period. He's lived in. The theme of reincarnation is used well in this manga and you'll see numerous crossovers and parallels to the Edo period as Yukari is read more

LOVED this manga so much I bought the 1st volume & am planning on buying the rest when they come out.
Read whole review OR just read the end & look @ the scores.

The story is very unique and interesting. It definitely keeps you reading.
When it comes to mangas and certain genre's there will always be similarities but it's the differences that make or break the manga & the differences in this manga make it.

It brings in not only the Edo period but also a supernatural element to it which makes it way more interesting. It's not a random supernatural element too,
like for ex: (NOT read more

Manga: Shut Hell
Both have a boy who was a girl in his previous life as the main character and he starts go back to his previous life from time to time after he meets the second main character who is a girl who was a boy in her previous life. The two of them knew each other in the previous life. The stories are really different although.

Manga: Oyayubihime Infinity
these two are very similar to each other: they both have the main characters looking into their past lives. Also, one of the present day characters in this manga meets one of the 'present day' main characters which they knew from their previous life; i know this is confusing, so if u read it, you'll get it!

Both have The Red light District as background where geishas live. In both the protagonist somehow ends up time travelling to the past. Both have wonderful artwork.
