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 Hanzou was so strict, then when he got to know Usagi better, his heart softened. It's a lot like Inuyasha in some ways. But "Tail of The Moon", is not all about romance. Like I said earlier, it has humor and action in it too; so it makes it more exciting as the story goes. This story takes place in feudal Japan (warren era, aka in the past). It goes on about this one girl who is obviously horrible when it comes to being a ninja (because she can never get out of kiddie class), so her great grandfather tells her to go marry Hanzo, Hattori and have children with him. When she gets there, Hanzou rejects her, because he's not interested in getting married. Of course the story will get better than the plot has said.
I believe that this series won't die out, it's too dang good. ;) read more

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!

Usagi goes through many hardships and competition trying to win Hanzo`s love for herself and while on the way Hanzo slowly opens up to her and accepts her. And thats where Ill stop for this summary as I dont want to give out to much. Did I get you interested and off your seat?..hopefully I did. In all together the art and characters were split out splendidly I adored the awh and ooh scenes in this manga. It wasnt just romance in the whole plot action and comedy were tossed in to spice it up..and maybe add a dash of drama?
Usagi and Hanzo`s love is what Id say a one in a kind..If you can consider it that...Hanzo`s frozen heart slowly starts to melt and softens as he learns more and gets closer to Usagi. Their love makes my heart flutter and sometimes makes me want that kind of love, that kind of special connection with someone.
As I want to say I give this an out standing 10/10. I give it two thumbs up and you wont be disappointed with this ninja love adventure!

Art - 9 (great, I love the coupling I've made. Yeah, IKR, I'm a Fujoshi so what?
Character - 2 (dreadful)
Enjoyment - 1 (pathetic)
overall- 4 (decent)
1st 50 chapters was awesome, I might have rated it with a 10. But the remaining were a total s***. I was controlling myself not to curse anymore due its patheticness. I finished it hoping for a great comeback. Aw geez, now that I think about, it was really a waste. grr >.< Super stupid heroine, chaotic conclusion, and again, stupid heroine. At Least it was consistent on its heroine being stupid and has tons of bishies even older bishies (drools haha). I guess that's it. I enjoyed it coupling bishies with the older bishies together. Well, you can't deprive a Fujoshi THAT from a wasted gem like this. *sigh.. read more

Tail of the moon is about a girl named Usagi who is unable to do rigorious excercies. Her great grandfather decided that the one task she was able to do was become the bride-elect of Hanzo and marry him. The story is more of the romantic type but it also includes a bit of adventure and humor. The story progresses at a steady pace and it will keep you hooked till the very end. It seems very simple and non-creative at the beginning but as the story progresses it gets more complicating and interesting. The plot line does a eally great job at hidding the intention of the characters motives. You never know how the story is going to turn out, which makes the story all the more exciting.
Art - 7
The artist put a great amount of time creating the characters and their looks. It is clearly identifiable when you look at the drawings. She expecially puts alot of detail into the facial features and their clothing of the characters. One problem that I have with the drawings is that the first time I saw Hanzo, I thought he was a girl because of his hair and long eyelashes.
Characters - 8
Their are quite alot of important characters in this story but they all have lots of times when they are in the story so you won't forget who they are. Also, their personalities are very different from one another, even the brothers, which makes them all unique.
I really enjoyed this manga and I would recommend it to people who like romance mangas or people who like a little adventure. read more
