Munakata is an anthropology professor that studies the relationship between folklore or fairy tales and real historical events. He believes that many of these stories that most presume to be entirely fictional are actually based on real events. This manga tells the story of Professor Munakata as he follows the clues left from both the imaginary world of fairy tales and the real world historical evidence.

This manga is a refreshing read and a deviation of sorts for those who constantly read all the shonens that release weekly. The connections between the history of the land and the implications it has on the fairy tales are extremely intriguing. It is a breath of fresh air if all you read are the typical genres and want some diversity. For those who like mythology and ancient history, this manga provides quite a beautiful insight.

NOTE: This manga progresses in an episodic manner and it does not provide any connections between chapters although, 2 or 3 characters make an appearance in more than 2 read more
