File:Red River, Volume 1.jpg

The shōjo manga series Red River was written and illustrated by Chie Shinohara. The sixty untitled chapters were serialized in Japan in the bimonthly manga anthology Shōjo Comic from 1995 to January 2002.[1] They were then collected and published in 28 tankōbon volumes by Shogakukan, and later republished in 16 bunkobon volumes. As of 2006, the collected volumes had sold 16 million copies in Japan.[2]

Viz Media announced on February 13, 2004 that they had acquired the series for an English-language release in North America, with volume 1 scheduled for a second-quarter release.[1] Viz released volume 1 on June 23, 2004,[3] and volume 25 was released on April 2009.[4] Red River is also published in Vietnam by Tre Publishing House,[citation needed] in Germany by Egmont Manga & Anime,[5] and in Italy by Star Comics.[6]

Red River is about a Japanese girl named Yuri Suzuki who is magically transported to Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia, during the reign of the historical King Suppiluliuma I when the Hittite Empire was near its peak of power, rivaled only by Egypt, then ruled by the young Pharaoh Tutankhamen. Many of the people and events in the story are drawn from known history.

She emerges from a spring in 14th century B.C.E. Hattusa, capital of the Hittite Empire, in the region known today as Anatolia in central Turkey, to serve as a key element in a curse by the dread queen Nakia. She is rescued by Prince Kail Mursili, who saves her from sacrifice by falsely claiming that he had previously taken her virginity. He later consents to her wish to return her home—but her 20th century clothes, necessary for her return, are in Nakia's hands. As Yuri tries to retrieve them with the help of a young palace servant named Tito, she walks straight into a deadly trap.</td></tr>
