... there's no thread for this manga yet, so i'm gonna start one.
there are many to discuss about this manga.. like the patrilineal-patrilocal culture and society.. or the location (possibly uzbekistan... i could be wrong)... the time line setting, somewhere at "the great game" i think.. and so on and so on
knowing emma i believe kaoru mori is stuffing herself with as much knowledge about this area, this culture, and this particular time to come out with otoyomegatari...
see, there's a lot to talk about..

so lets me start with:
why does it say josei on the genre? even though it's published in a seinen magazine (now checking emma if this happen there too)... to whoever put josei up there, what's your excuse?

i know there's a thread specially made to report this type of case, but i think it's a lot better to talk about it here, don't you think?

ps: something i just realize.. why is the default name is otome-katari? not otoyomegatari?

I'm not sure why everybody is so focused on the relationship between the first two main characters when half the manga is about another guy travelling around, which was in my opinion way more interesting. In fact I think the author understood it would be lacking to only show the daily life of the two lovers and couldn't help using a background character to renew it.

Even the recents antics of Karluk and Amar are barely romantic at all, which is a nice change honestly. That and I hope the author drops the "new arc, new bride" because I personally found it quite redundant in comparison to Smith's travels, at some point, and there's so much more to talk of about that era than just "brides brides brides".
