Otoyomegatari 17

This was a very confusing and sad chapter.  Poor Mr. Smith he just wanted some foreign booty, was it too much to ask.  I like how the author gave a general picture of their locations as well as their destination.

If you guys have not check out this series yet I suggest you do so.  It has by far the BEST drawing out of all the manga that I’ve read (I’ve read alot).  Its name can also be called “Young Bride’s Story.”  The author is Kaoru Mori, the same author that created Emma (another great manga if you have not already read it).  Otoyomegatari is about the story of different young brides set during the 19th century.  It starts off with Amira Hergal who is married to 12 years old Karluk Ayhan.  They love each other deeply but she is considered old for a new bride and we get to explore how their story unfolds.  It’s a very loving, cute, interesting, and historical storyline and I HIGHLY recommend people check out the manga.

This slice of life chapter is pretty relaxing.  Its funny how Amira’s cute antics would always show up like her love for pomegranates or her nomadic way of life.  Its interesting that Pariya might actually be able to get a boy of her own if she plays her card right.  Also the guide seems to be able to just get the guard to pay for everything, I wonder how much power does England actually have during this time.  I like this chapter with its showing of the different types of food it reminds me of Indian food that I ate a few weeks ago.  I was so sad that there wasn’t any One Piece release this week but this release brought back my smile =).
