Youri, a pretty Japanese girl who just passed a college entrance exam, is ecstatic after her first kiss with her handsome childhood friend-turned-boyfriend, Himuro. Meanwhile, 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. She emerges from the water to find that she has been transported to an ancient village somewhere in the Middle East. She is then captured by armed troops and taken to the queen's palace, where she learns that the queen had her kidnapped so she can offer her blood as part of a ritual that will kill two princes in competition to inherit the kingdom.

This is the start of a highly regarded manga story featuring a modern day Japanese girl transported to ancient Turkey. I have heard women describe this as a corset buster, which is a tip-off that within no time at all, the main character finds herself in a dicey situation involving antiquated notions of sexual consent. I think there are some great discussion points, but this is going to be an uncomfortable story for people easily embarrassed by sexual situations in comic form.
