    I'm going through my second childhood enjoying graphic novels (anime/manga). Actually I'm only interested in the ones which are cultural or historical. The second installment of A Bride's Story is better than the first story wise. It delves more into the cultural and historical set...

    The second volume, the second part of Amira and Karluk's story. At first it seems all is sweet and quiet in Amira and Karluk's life. The troubles that followed them last time seemed to have passed. But that is just a ruse, Amira's family is still around and still very dedicated to t...

    I really adore the way Mori interweaves plot and cultural history in this series - even better than in Emma to my mind. However if you mostly read for plot and romance, this is probably not the best Mori series for that. The fall-out of the fact that Amir's family want to give her ...

    The detail work is as lovely as ever (there are some lovely sequences about sewing clothes and quilts, and some silent sequences about the growing closeness between Amir and Karluk that are vivid and endearing), but this volume goes further into squicky/disappointing territory for me -...

    I'll keep this one short and not repeat all my gushing from my review of the first volume of this Manga series. The art continues to be superb, the story is engaging, and I got used to all those huge Manga eyes. I love that this story educates about the culture without being heavy ...

    Like the previous volume of A Bride's Story, this one was marked by an obviously huge amount of research and painstaking attention to detail. Oh, and incredibly beautiful art, as you can easily see from the cover. Plot? Not so much, though there does seem to be a bit more than in the p...

    I can stare at the artwork all day. Just beautiful! And I know some may think the plot is slow, but I do like how each chapter shines a light on different aspects of the culture, and the characters, and the life that these people lead.Also, Amir is becoming one of my favorite character...

    This vol was partially confusing. There are sudden changes in her characteristic, but I like that her wildness has not gone away. ...

    Continuing the story of Amir and Karluk who although he is rather young still care very much for one another and face challenges with a tight nit community and friends all while we get a glimpse into a culture that might not be familiar to many of us. From a blossoming friendship with ...

    Well that escalated quickly. I love this though. There is so much history and thought put into it. ...

    The drawings are A+++ ...

    Stunningly gorgeous. Really great enchanting story with beautiful detail and grace. ...

    J'ai encore une fois ador ce tome (avec un gros coup de coeur pour la partie sur les broderies). On en apprend galement un peu plus sur Henry Smith (personnage qui me fait beaucoup rire). J'ai hte de lire la suite ! ...

    Volume 2 resumes the conflict from Vol. 1 in which Amir's family attempts to reclaim her, take her back from the family she married into. Her older brother Azel, though, doesn't pursue her with the intensity their uncles want him to, and that's because the family they want to marry her...

    This manga is a historical romance set in a small town near the Caspian Sea in the 19th Century. Otoyogematari means "A Bride's Story" in English, so the stories revolve around courting, weddings, and married life of the people during that time period. The illustrations are beautifu...

    The artwork continues to delight and amaze me. There was a chapter where the women were discussing embroidery and different patterns that were associated with their family. The detail in those panels was so wonderful. The story does not move at the rapid-fire pace some manga does, b...

    1800-luvun keski-Aasiaan sijoittuva tarina. Nuori Amira jatkaa elmns puolisonsa perheess ja ystvystyy ksyyn Pariyaan. Pariyasta onkin apua, kun Amiran sukulaiset pttvt vied Amiran kotiin ja naittaa hnet uudelleen strategisesti sopivammalle puolisolle. Heidn ...

    2nd volume slightly better than the first because we get to learn about the embroidery of the women and see a culture from the perspective of the Western male. The WM is a visiting sociologist? or maybe just a man interested in Asian cultures? He is watching and chronicling life with t...

    I'm so glad that I continued reading this series! I love how Amir's character is adjusting to her new life and connecting with those around her. In this volume, tensions with Amir's former clan increase greatly, cultural elements and activities are highlighted, and Mr. Smith's habits g...

    Author's note said she may follow the anthropologist dude in the next books, which means we as readers avoid the inevitable weird bedroom scenes between Amir and Karluk. I was beginning to worry about that. I still like the series, though. Especially the cloth chapter. ...

    les dessins sont vraiment magnifiques, de plus l'histoire est vraiment prenante, on s'attache trs vite karluk et amir. et cerise sur le gteau c'est bourr d'informations sur les anciennes coutumes nomades en Asie centrale. bref cette srie vaut vraiment le detour ...

    A bit confusing with all the characters, but still so enjoyable. The afterwords are always the funniest part of the books. ...

    This manga is a historical romance set in a small town near the Caspian Sea in the 19th Century. Otoyogematari means "A Bride's Story" in English, so the stories revolve around courting, weddings, and married life of the people during that time period. The illustrations are beautifu...

    1800-luvun keski-Aasiaan sijoittuva tarina. Nuori Amira jatkaa elmns puolisonsa perheess ja ystvystyy ksyyn Pariyaan. Pariyasta onkin apua, kun Amiran sukulaiset pttvt vied Amiran kotiin ja naittaa hnet uudelleen strategisesti sopivammalle puolisolle. Heidn ...

    2nd volume slightly better than the first because we get to learn about the embroidery of the women and see a culture from the perspective of the Western male. The WM is a visiting sociologist? or maybe just a man interested in Asian cultures? He is watching and chronicling life with t...

    I'm so glad that I continued reading this series! I love how Amir's character is adjusting to her new life and connecting with those around her. In this volume, tensions with Amir's former clan increase greatly, cultural elements and activities are highlighted, and Mr. Smith's habits g...

    Author's note said she may follow the anthropologist dude in the next books, which means we as readers avoid the inevitable weird bedroom scenes between Amir and Karluk. I was beginning to worry about that. I still like the series, though. Especially the cloth chapter. ...

    les dessins sont vraiment magnifiques, de plus l'histoire est vraiment prenante, on s'attache trs vite karluk et amir. et cerise sur le gteau c'est bourr d'informations sur les anciennes coutumes nomades en Asie centrale. bref cette srie vaut vraiment le detour ...

    A bit confusing with all the characters, but still so enjoyable. The afterwords are always the funniest part of the books. ...

    Man. Dude. Oh man. This series is such a frickin' DEEEEE-LIGHT. I definitely liked/loved Volume 1, but I was also, admittedly, getting to grips with Mori's style, her pacing, her setting and the plot. I was just, like, super slammed in the face with all this strange, weird, new stuff. ...

    so the second volume is sort of what I spoke of in the first volume. The characters are bland but with Mr Smith there is a bit of development. Once again the chapters are episodic and only has one story plot that connects with the first volume. Amirs uncles want Amir back and the f...

    I'm going through my second childhood enjoying graphic novels (anime/manga). Actually I'm only interested in the ones which are cultural or historical. The second installment of A Bride's Story is better than the first story wise. It delves more into the cultural and historical set...

    The second volume, the second part of Amira and Karluk's story. At first it seems all is sweet and quiet in Amira and Karluk's life. The troubles that followed them last time seemed to have passed. But that is just a ruse, Amira's family is still around and still very dedicated to t...

    I really adore the way Mori interweaves plot and cultural history in this series - even better than in Emma to my mind. However if you mostly read for plot and romance, this is probably not the best Mori series for that. The fall-out of the fact that Amir's family want to give her ...

    The detail work is as lovely as ever (there are some lovely sequences about sewing clothes and quilts, and some silent sequences about the growing closeness between Amir and Karluk that are vivid and endearing), but this volume goes further into squicky/disappointing territory for me -...

    I'll keep this one short and not repeat all my gushing from my review of the first volume of this Manga series. The art continues to be superb, the story is engaging, and I got used to all those huge Manga eyes. I love that this story educates about the culture without being heavy ...

    Like the previous volume of A Bride's Story, this one was marked by an obviously huge amount of research and painstaking attention to detail. Oh, and incredibly beautiful art, as you can easily see from the cover. Plot? Not so much, though there does seem to be a bit more than in the p...

    I can stare at the artwork all day. Just beautiful! And I know some may think the plot is slow, but I do like how each chapter shines a light on different aspects of the culture, and the characters, and the life that these people lead.Also, Amir is becoming one of my favorite character...

    Like the previous volume of A Bride's Story, this one was marked by an obviously huge amount of research and painstaking attention to detail. Oh, and incredibly beautiful art, as you can easily see from the cover. Plot? Not so much, though there does seem to be a bit more than in the p...

    I can stare at the artwork all day. Just beautiful! And I know some may think the plot is slow, but I do like how each chapter shines a light on different aspects of the culture, and the characters, and the life that these people lead.Also, Amir is becoming one of my favorite character...

    This vol was partially confusing. There are sudden changes in her characteristic, but I like that her wildness has not gone away. ...

    Continuing the story of Amir and Karluk who although he is rather young still care very much for one another and face challenges with a tight nit community and friends all while we get a glimpse into a culture that might not be familiar to many of us. From a blossoming friendship with ...

    Well that escalated quickly. I love this though. There is so much history and thought put into it. ...

    The drawings are A+++ ...

    Stunningly gorgeous. Really great enchanting story with beautiful detail and grace. ...

    J'ai encore une fois ador ce tome (avec un gros coup de coeur pour la partie sur les broderies). On en apprend galement un peu plus sur Henry Smith (personnage qui me fait beaucoup rire). J'ai hte de lire la suite ! ...

    4.5/5 I?m obsessed with this story ? ...

    Volume 2 resumes the conflict from Vol. 1 in which Amir's family attempts to reclaim her, take her back from the family she married into. Her older brother Azel, though, doesn't pursue her with the intensity their uncles want him to, and that's because the family they want to marry her...

    This manga is a historical romance set in a small town near the Caspian Sea in the 19th Century. Otoyogematari means "A Bride's Story" in English, so the stories revolve around courting, weddings, and married life of the people during that time period. The illustrations are beautifu...

    The artwork continues to delight and amaze me. There was a chapter where the women were discussing embroidery and different patterns that were associated with their family. The detail in those panels was so wonderful. The story does not move at the rapid-fire pace some manga does, b...

    1800-luvun keski-Aasiaan sijoittuva tarina. Nuori Amira jatkaa elmns puolisonsa perheess ja ystvystyy ksyyn Pariyaan. Pariyasta onkin apua, kun Amiran sukulaiset pttvt vied Amiran kotiin ja naittaa hnet uudelleen strategisesti sopivammalle puolisolle. Heidn ...

    2nd volume slightly better than the first because we get to learn about the embroidery of the women and see a culture from the perspective of the Western male. The WM is a visiting sociologist? or maybe just a man interested in Asian cultures? He is watching and chronicling life with t...

    I'm so glad that I continued reading this series! I love how Amir's character is adjusting to her new life and connecting with those around her. In this volume, tensions with Amir's former clan increase greatly, cultural elements and activities are highlighted, and Mr. Smith's habits g...

    Author's note said she may follow the anthropologist dude in the next books, which means we as readers avoid the inevitable weird bedroom scenes between Amir and Karluk. I was beginning to worry about that. I still like the series, though. Especially the cloth chapter. ...

    les dessins sont vraiment magnifiques, de plus l'histoire est vraiment prenante, on s'attache trs vite karluk et amir. et cerise sur le gteau c'est bourr d'informations sur les anciennes coutumes nomades en Asie centrale. bref cette srie vaut vraiment le detour ...

    A bit confusing with all the characters, but still so enjoyable. The afterwords are always the funniest part of the books. ...

    Man. Dude. Oh man. This series is such a frickin' DEEEEE-LIGHT. I definitely liked/loved Volume 1, but I was also, admittedly, getting to grips with Mori's style, her pacing, her setting and the plot. I was just, like, super slammed in the face with all this strange, weird, new stuff. ...

    so the second volume is sort of what I spoke of in the first volume. The characters are bland but with Mr Smith there is a bit of development. Once again the chapters are episodic and only has one story plot that connects with the first volume. Amirs uncles want Amir back and the f...

    Buensimo tebeo histrico-romntico-costumbrista ambientado en Asia central, zona del mar Caspio, a mediados del siglo XIX. Me est gustando muchsimo, sobre todo cuando no hay conflicto, y se limita a pequeos asuntos cotidianos, la primera historia sobre como los dos protagonis...

    This must be my manga summer... This volume contains a conflict between Amir's former family and the family into which she has married. Her family would like to take her back and marry her into another clan to improve relations between their two clans. Amir is happy with her new fam...

    I'm going through my second childhood enjoying graphic novels (anime/manga). Actually I'm only interested in the ones which are cultural or historical. The second installment of A Bride's Story is better than the first story wise. It delves more into the cultural and historical set...

    The second volume, the second part of Amira and Karluk's story. At first it seems all is sweet and quiet in Amira and Karluk's life. The troubles that followed them last time seemed to have passed. But that is just a ruse, Amira's family is still around and still very dedicated to t...

    I really adore the way Mori interweaves plot and cultural history in this series - even better than in Emma to my mind. However if you mostly read for plot and romance, this is probably not the best Mori series for that. The fall-out of the fact that Amir's family want to give her ...
