First published by Shogakukan, Inc. in Japan as "Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori."
The Hittite queen wants her son to succeed to the throne, but he has six older half brothers. A fortelling shows her a young girl, one who has the blood the queen needs to perform a sacrifice which will eliminate all that stands in the way of her dreams. However, this girl, from modern-day Japan, isn't quite so willing to become a sacrifice when she finds herself summoned to the Ancient Middle East. Instead, she appears as the Goddess of War, Ishtar.
"Yuri, a pretty Japanese girl, is ecstatic after passing her college entrance exam and having her first kiss with her childhood friend-turned boyfriend. However, her luck soon changes. She starts to notice that water becomes agitated whenever she goes near it. One night, hands appear out of a puddle on the street and drag her into the water! Transported to an ancient village in the Middle East, she is then captured by armed troops and taken to the Queen's palace for a human sacrifice. Adventure and good-looking boys fill this great first volume!" -- Publisher's description
Translated from the Japanese.
