Basara is a quite interesting manga. I don't like romantic stuff but this one i could not put down. The action is intriguing and the plot is so thick along with the tension that builds as you read. There was an accompany anime but it was only 13 episodes so that left me in suspense just like an NBC mini series named Kingpin. So thanks to this site, I can now finish something I started and I know it will be good to see how the desert princess comes through on this while fighting her emotions. Girls my love this one....
