Everyone knows about the story of Shahrazad and her wonderful tales of the Arabian nights. For one thousand and one nights, she entertained the mad Sultan with the adventures of Aladdin, Ali Baba, Sinbad, genies, and many other mystical creatures. But what if Shahrazad was actually a boy desperate to save his sister's life? What kind of strange things would he do to make sure that he survives to tell the tale? This new twist on one of the greatest classical folk tales just might keep you awake for another One Thousand and One Nights.

There are some gripping stories in the mix here too although this is a bit more uneven IMHO. You're not always that invested in the characters of the stories - kind of inevitable when they're of short duration - and I found myself a little impatient at times to get back to the main story.

Sehara is a very sweet character, ...

First of all, I would like to note that although this is marked as a BL, that is but one of the elements of the storyline, not strictly the main focus. So, even if you happen to dislike that genre, that doesn’t necessarily mean you will dislike the entirety of this manhwa.

One Thousand and One Nights is inspired by the namesake tale, and retains the format of telling stories within a story. One major change to the “main”, overarching story would by that, you’ve guessed it, the position of a princess is overtaken by a man, giving it a yaoi-ish vibes. Fortunately, it doesn’t go ...
