Manga Monday! #88 – The Legend of Chun Hyang by CLAMP

The Legend of Chun Hyang by CLAMP


Review: This is another of CLAMP’s one shot manga series, and sadly it will leave you wanting for more. Every time I happen to stop and read it again, I still wish that there were more to the series. To know how the princess’s travels re going or if the romance ever goes anywhere…

The art, as always is beautiful and classic. Whenever I do read anything that CLAMP has done, it always make me wish for the more classic look that manga used to be. Don’t get me wrong I love the new styles and the crazy new stuff manga creators are coming up with. But at times I miss the original styles and plots.

Would I? Recommend this series? Make everyone read it? – Yes, but only if you are into the older styles and classic manga. And if you are a fan of the new CLAMP manga, there’s no way you would not love the older manga.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Volumes: 1

Manga. Fantasy. Romance.

Summary: A beautiful warrior princess is the only one who can save her land from a tyrannical ruler whose only form of governing is oppression and corruption. In a remarkably daring departure from CLAMP’s usual fare, this stand-alone historical fantasy set in ancient Korea features striking brushstrokes reminiscent of “Shirahime-syo.”
