Usagi is the granddaughter of the leader of a prestigious ninja village, but she's such a klutz that she's never made it out of the kiddie class. Frustrated with Usagi's lack of progress, her grandfather sends her to marry Lord Hanzo and have lots of ninja babies. But the lord has no interest in her or her childbearing potential!

I love this manga series! I feel so sad that I finished it already. :'(
This manga series should be a hit for every person who loves romance/humor/action manga! It surprised me when I first started to read it. I felt so mesmerized as I read, I couldn't get the words "Tail of The Moon", out of my head ( LOL did I just rhyme there?)! Usagi and Hanzo (the one who doesn't have blond hair), are over all my most two favorite characters out of this series. Them two... show how love can be formed and not broken. It really was cool at first that read more

This manga is a proper shoujo extravaganza. There are hot guys around every corner. They rescue the heroine from life threatening situations and try to bed her despite not wanting to. Shurikens are used to stop people from kissing. There are piggy back rides galore, intense kissing and what not. However its not ecchi or hentai. Its a gripping manga. The female lead is a klutz ninja and is mistaken for a guy many times. She wins everyone over with her heart. The story is extremely interesting and heartwarming. The art is quite good and appealing. Its a good read and will be a hit read more

it probably looks like i'm over-rating it, but it really is that great!
a shoujo manga that has samurais, a cold-hearted lord and a girl that can't become a ninja and so she's sended to give birth to the lord's child.

it's a cute manga that occurs in times of war.
tough it might seem gloomy from what i'm saying (sorry, times of war and all), it's a really funny manga and i highly reccomend it!

I love this manga so much that I've actually reread the manga over three times. This manga has everything that I was looking for: romance, action, tragedy, laughs, and a main female character who actually tries to put in an effort to improve! It has some mature themes in it however so I would recommend this series only to readers 16/17+

it's also about ninjas, it's shoujo, and the female lead character is trying to seduce the male lead character...also the art is great.
Both, Nanami and Usagi are women who begin very weak and dependent on their respective hero to save them. The story focuses on their struggle to be stronger and to impress the hero they love. Both, Tomoe and Hanazoe are skeptical and rebuff the heroines on their first meeting but slowly fall in love with the heroines as Nanami and Usuagi show their sincerity and dedication to their cause. Both desire the affection of the hero and get into a series of conflicts where the hero has to save them. Both heroines have multiple love interests but are always resolute about their love for the hero of the story.

As the story progresses the heroines begin to better understand the men they love and try to work hard to improve their skills. Nanami works towards being a better land god where Usagi develops her herbalism skills and ocassionaly ninjistu. While working on these respective goals they are able to help others and forge important friendships that will help them in the future.

Arranged marriage stories. The guy is against at the beginning.. love the art in both although
Tsuki no shippo is more intense. And is about shinobis while jogang jicheo is set in high school
Both are tales of heartwarming romance centering on a strong female lead who has to overcome great obstacles. She is not appealing in the stereotypical way and transforms everyone around her. Both have some comedy and numerous atrractive males.
The author is the same, they both take place in feudal Japan, and they both have a lot of drama in them. Anyways, "Hadashi de Bara wo Fume" and "Tail of the Moon" are both great mangas worth reading!
Tsuki no Shippo is a historical manga rather than a fantasy one, but they both have a strong, fighter male character and follow a love story filled with romance and action!
