Due to the manner in which the past-lifing issues get resolved in the two, they could be viewed as opposites, to a certain extent. Where as in PSME nothing could be done about the past in the past itself, ToT differs because its story gets told via the perspective of a time-traveling kid in need of much karmic suffering (from 1999), during the 13th century.
Reincarnations, past sins, shadow vs light love triangle woes - the two share all of the good bits. And, like the other series dealing with past-lives that I've read, the level characterisation makes it impossible to stop reading them... unless you're called Tumerking. read more
This recommendation is about two stories that are extremely well written. These stories have in common that they are about teenagers getting stuck in their
past lifes. The lives they have lived before their reincarnation to who they are right now. Those past lifes aren't concluded because they died with regret. Both are about teenagers that somehow relive their past life, or become stuck in it. Both are about love that blossoms again after reincarnation. Please do note these are two completely different stories. PSME is about a past life set in a sci-fi environment while ToT is in a historical setting.
In both mangas, the main character gets thrown back in time for a specific purpose which gets to be revealed later.. both include war, romance, revenge, great characters and brilliant plots that offer great reads for MAL users who love this genre :)
These stories are about a teenager from our time that excels in kendo. The similarity between the stories doesn't end here: Both of them drown, but wake up in a medieval era and realise they are tangled up in karma, faith or destiny. So these teenagers engage in war and use their kendo-skills to save the day.
Threads of Time has a realistic setting - the Korean war with the Mongols.
Saver has a less realistic setting: there is a fantasy-like race with inhuman powers.
Both are about wars and both are historical. The plot line may not be entirely the same but both the main characters are from the modern world that were sent back to the past. Unfortunately, both are slow at first but picks up later. You have got to read them! They are both quite enjoyable. I don't know why so few people read them...
both stories play out in japan of medieval times and center around a young warrior and his struggles. also, the feel of reality is high, though it's not gore the violent and insecure circumstances of living at that time are still depicted more accurately than in other historical manga
the art styles are kinda similar, too - i liked it a lot
-they almost have the same feel to them...
-2 guys fighting over one girl
-one of the guy have known the girl for a long time
-setting of the both manga have some kind of war going on
-both have something have to do with the past
Premises are similar, reincarnation and historical themes and setting going on. Both deal with past issues, romance and gets super interesting as the story and characters progresses and grow up. Threads of Time is longer so it may take some time to get into.
These two Manhwa's are similar for several reasons. Legend of Nereid, and almost the whole story from Threads of Time are placed in a society or a cultural setting from roughly 1 millenium ago.
Eventually you could say both of the stories are about a normal teenager that excels in armed combat practice, who later on will be dragged down to the battlefield.
When considering going on vacation, jumping 100's of years into the past to the times when the Mongolians were invading and conquering all wouldn't be ideal. But that's what happens in these two: the respective leads finding themselves right in the middle of hellish warfare. Naturally, there are romantic subplots and duels to the death with swords... what more could you ask for?
Since King of Wolves was drawn by Berserk's author, wrote by FotNS' author and shares obvious similarities to Threads of Time, it's best described as a blend of the three. (Thankfully, only the FotNS LARGE man thing got added from that. Far more similar to Berserk.) Threads of Time is where it's at if you're looking for a well-developed story with a killer twist, rather than lots of fighting, though.
In King of Wolves you even get to learn the TRUE identity of Genghis Khan. How awesome is that? The info even made watching Kurozuka seem somehow more worthwhile. read more
A teenage boy gets sucked into the past. Fate does exist, and he has a important role he has to fulfil. Amatsuki is a manga placed in the Edo era. The manhwa Threads of Time is placed in the era of the Mongol invasions in Korea.
They're both 11 volumes long.
They were both licensed by Tokyopop.
They are now both OOP.
They are both owned by Aion. (This makes Aion happy.)
Also, they're both war epics heavy on main character growth. After seeing loved ones die and - in the case of ToT - raped, the two respective leads experience the hardships of war first-hand; killing in order to survive and eventually becoming leaders.
ToT is the more realistic of the two because, where as SIII is an adaptation of a JRPG, ToT depicts the Mongolian invasion of Korea and all of the 'spoils of war' taking / raping / slaughtering that occurred in reality. I'm happy to report that younglings do get murdered in both, but ToT is definitely the more difficult to stomach. read more
Both are supernatural adventure mangas that take place in historic Korea. The main character in both mangas is a tough guy tied down by his past in some way. The story lines in the mangas are epic and original. With either manga you read you don't lose! XD
