A friend challenged me to find manga recommendations for a non-manga reader like him. This is probably one of them. Otoyomegatari (or 'A Bride's Story') an exotic cross between historical romance/slice of life, The Travels of Marco Polo, and National Geographic. It has such exquisite and detailed artwork that I know will appeal to my artistic friend. But most of all, has that Kaoru Mori (one of my favorite mangakas, by the way) distinction of having interesting female characters having the time ...more

This is such a wonderful series. Set in the Caucasus Mountains of Turkmenistan in the 19th century, this series opens a window onto a world that's almost entirely foreign to us, and yet under Mori's skilled hand it feels familiar too. Mori's artwork is astounding - she draws the costumes, the scenery and the architecture of the period in loving and painstakingly-accurate detail. It's a real feast for the eyes. She gives you a sense of the vast, spare beauty of the plains, as well as stuffing her ...more

Η αλήθεια είναι ότι δεν είναι ένας τίτλος που θα σε τραβήξει με την δράση και την τρελή δολοπλοκία. Περισσότερο τραβάει επειδή είναι ένα πολιτιστικό κατηγορώ της δημιουργού απέναντι στον εσωτερικό ρατσισμό και την άκρατη αντικειμενοποίηση της γυναίκας τον 19ο αιώνα, με μοτίβο τον χτισμένο πάνω στο όπιο και τις εκδιδόμενες Ασιάτισες silk road. Με ευχαριστεί ιδιαίτερα το γεγονός ότι η Kaoru χρησιμοποιεί μόνο γυναίκες ηρωίδες που αντιμετωπίζουν με σθένος και μαχητικότητα τα όποια εμπόδια και δεν στ ...more

Another great volume, full of gorgeous art and interesting historical and cultural detail. This volume focuses on Pariya, who tends to come across as abrasive, but desperately wants to get married to a particular young man. Female friendship and courting customs are explored, and it’s easy to empathize and grimace with Pariya as she struggle to fit a mold not designed for her. I stayed up way too late reading volume 8 and this volume back to back. And now I need to order volume 10...and hope the ...more

I love the way the mangaka tells the story of the brides. This manga is so beautiful, I can't have enough of it.
I'm depressedly waiting for the new chapter (a new whole volume would be great).

Found volumes 5-8 at my local library, so I thought I would reread the first 4 volumes online. I really enjoyed this! Mori's story-line is so interesting, but I'm in love with her artwork! The detailing is so fine and intricate; I can't help but admire every full-page drawing.
The only thing that bothers me is the age gap, though I acknowledge that large age gaps are common in most cultures around this time period. I have no issue with the fact that it is Amira (the br

I think the only thing negative I can say is that I would have liked more dialogue. Very interesting series with plenty of surprises and relevant issues for today. Subtle and understated on the whole, and you often have to wonder what the characters are really thinking but are not allowed to express. Most obviously to a modern Westerner, though Amira smiles and behaves as if she is happy and seems to love her husband, can a 20 year old woman really be content and fulfilled with a 12 year old spo ...more

Desde el trazo de cada personajes, vestuario y escenario, hasta la simplicidad de la historia, me ha fascinado todo. Como es una especie de drama histórico, entiendo en cierta parte las circunstancias de la protagonista y su matrimonio, también medio comprendo un poco sobre la razón detrás de la gran diferencia de edad entre los protagonista (a pesar que aún no se ha dicho nada directamente) por ello no tengo problemas con ese asunto, no obstante este tipo de cosas siempre suelen no terminarme d ...more

تدور الأحداث في القرن 19 وتحكي عن فتاة بدوية عشرينية اسمها أميره من
كازاخستان زُوِجت بصبي عمره 12 سنه فقط، تتحدث القصه عن يوميات هذين الزوجين و كيف تتأقلم أميره مع بيئتها الجديدة كما تشمل أيضاً مشاكل الشخصيات الأخرى و بعض القصص عنهم، و تضم كذلك كمية كبيره من المعلومات عن الحياة في ذلك الوقت و عن الثقافة الكازاخستانية آن ذاك.

أكثر شي يلفت النظر في المانجا هو الزخارف، كميية جمال كبيره .

القصة اوسع من كونها قصة عروس شابة تزوجت بفتا اصغر منها ب 8 سنوات , فهي توضح عادات و تقاليد القبائل و القرى التي عاشت قرب بحر القزويين في القرن التاسع عشر, و هي ايضا لا تركز فقط على قصة العروس الرئيسية , هناك اكثر من 5 عروسات ظهرت في القصة لحد الان <3, الرسم في القصة قصة لوحده, مستوى التفاصيل خيالي جداو واقعي بشكل جميل .

Suka banget sama karya manga-ka ini. Artworknya sangat bagus dan detil. Ceritanya adorable dengan kepolosan yang luar biasa juga sisipan komedi yang menyegarkan.
One of my favorite Josei along with Yotsuba and Emma.
