Okay, I admitted. I have not seen a manga that has this much attention to detail. The art is just absolutely stunning and incredibly well drawn. Mori Kaoru is truly an artist, bringing colors to a slice of life story.

The art in this manga is simply beautiful... This isn't just a story, it is a piece of art --and an amazing one at that.

Such beauty deserves to be seen, and i would recommend this to anyone, guys and girls alike. The story is grounded in reality, with art that surpasses any that i've previously seen.

This is simply a masterpiece.

Never read Mori-sensei manga before, this is first time for me.
About the artwork... It's simply beautiful and detail. The mangaka drew everything so well, start from character, their clothes, enviroment, everything done so well. I feel like I'm not just reading, but also like watching an episodic anime☆ //brickd
Next...I read many shoujo manga, and Amira become's one of my favourite character. She's different. Her personality is very done so well. She's cute, strong, can do archery, can do lot of things, smart and polite ヽ(*´∀`)ノ she's so mature. Anyway, I love Karluk as well and some other character like Pariya, the Twins, etc.
Already read till six and fall more deeply with Amira and Karluk (^///^) Azer as well ☆


◦(..˘ ⌣ ˘..)◦ already collect the physical book

Life on the plains of Central Asia   
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0
by Ed U. Manga
June 28th, 2014, 6:24am
Painstakingly researched portrayal of different lifestyles in Central Asia during the 19th century. Be it marriage, clan resolutions and territorial disputes or hunting, bread baking and needlework - no matter how mundane they seem, Mori Kaoru depicts them down to the smallest detail. And it is this unerring accuracy that brings her work to life. The atmosphere is so rich that one feels like a member of the settled families or the restless nomads.

Highly educational/ non-instructive: ★★★

I've been holding out reading this manga almost for a year already and today I decided to take it up. If you already knew about middle eastern cultures then you can already acknowledge the unknown beauty and deepness of the story laid out in this manga. I fell in love with this story since chapter 1 and while reading through out the chapters I realized that I've been reading too much crap lately.

When I came to chapter 13 I, a constant traveler as I've been for the past 8 years, felt an immediate connection of those "fated" encounters you have while travelling (and sometimes we sadly disregard as random). This chapter made me stand up and write this comment for other people to read and recommend this manga as a very rare jewel. I have no doubts that, even if the pace is quite slow from the start for some and no "mission to accomplish" can be ascertained while reading, a sense of "reading pleasure" will get to you.

A middle east historical setting that isn't some magic carpet fantasy is really rare. The detailed art, the intricacies of daily life and culture of the chosen setting is just so beautiful that you want to keep reading.

I never thought a story about the day to day lives and struggles of women in a harsh environment and nomadic life would be as compelling to read as those epic battle mangas.

I was a bit put off when reading the plot summary about the underage marriage. So glad I did try reading it anyway and soon realized the story was much deeper than that. The art is gorgeous, I don't know how much effort the author had to invest to draw such beautiful outfits for characters.

Actually child marriages are quiet frequent in Eastern and Asian countries, i wondered how couples get along like that. SO this manga is the answer to all your questions about eastern cultures and lifestyles. Artwork is definetly what you call equsite.

This series is really quite excellent. It is clear that the subject matter has been well researched by the mangaka.

The story and the characters are all very well conceived. I look forward to seeing how the young husband grows.

Now if only the releases came out faster!
