halp

Yay! New friend :3

Tsk. Everytime I see a new chapter with Mr. Smith, I just remember poor Tarasu.

*sobs in corner* Tarasu... ;A;

...eventhough its grumpy, THAT FURBALL IS SO KYUUUUUUUTE!!!!

 

Possible shoujo ai (or yuri)?

Spoiler

I'm still bitter about the Mr. Smith thing, but the breasts have brought me back. I mean the art. Ahem. I mean the plot. Sensuality is definitely part of this story. It seems this type of historical tale has a certain romanticization of  white alabaster hallways, stone arches, long fingers in cool pools of water, of kept women in silken finery and long languorous lashes as they warm the beds of rakish men.

Oh yeah... I like where this is going...


I reiterate my previous statement, this time with extra emphasis:
Oh yeah, I like where this is going!

Drawing's so pretty I feel guilty looking at them..

Am I the only one who reread the few previous chapters and got heartbroken when Anis couldn't even hold her own son for long? It was heart-wrenching for me, man.

Come on, ladies! There are guys that like a petite woman. No need to pressure the poor girl into putting more meat on her bones. Though her breasts could...cough...ahem!

 

Still love the manga. It is so laid back with little drama (to me) that I just lose myself in it.

To be quite honest, I was more enamoured by that grumpy cat than all the nekkid women. Mori Kaoru's attention to detail makes even the household pets look amazing.

 ROFL! So I wasn't the only one! I usually don't like cats all that much, but when I saw that one, I was like, "Damn I want that fluffy furball." xD

An impressive grump it was, to be sure. :)

Actually, most people in England (and in "Continental" Europe, too) were poor and lived either as farmers, craftsmen, or day laborers (this became more common due to the industrialization).

I think it should be obvious from his name (Smith) that he's not from a noble family. Second sons of English nobles in the 18th century would have had names based on either the family estate (but not the holdings, that'd be the lord's prerogative) or the original clan name of the family. Smith might be a member of the gentry or "new wealth", but not a noble unless only recently enfeoffed/knighted.

Wow

That girl Shirin has one lucky husband.

If It was me I'd be working hard to learn the rain dances.

rose are red

violet are blue

i suck at poem
i love boobs

this is so tactful...

 

I find it very delicate and graceful. I like that Mori portrays the relationship between both ladies with out plainly falling in the common place of a romance; it's juts friendship (up to now at least). I mean, you wonder if they will have some romance. But maybe the story won't be about a romance or sex between them, but just about their friendship; no matter how much the wife likes Shirin body. As a result of that all these scenes in the bath with the nudity are to me just so delicate and very artistic portrayal of the relationship between two wives in that times and that lands. 

He most certainly has a wealthy family. He threw away the watch like it was nothing, he's been travelling for quite some time and he's going to India where his family has a residence.

 

So the other women is married, well there goes the theory of some people that thought she'd try to convince her husband to take another women as his wife.

 

Although she's not rich so something could happen to her husband and she could take her in pity.

 

Yet again, in this chapter we've seen the scepticism and concern from the husband and the awe of his wife towards this beauty. I say awe because they barely know each other and she's totally ogling the busty lady.

 

All of this is reinforcing the idea that something is going to happen at some point, I guess time will tell.

 

Maybe not wealthy, but at least confortable. Like a merchant family.

Tits.

I have been wondering could Mr Smith actually come from a noble family himself ?

 

I do not think anyone from middle class or lower in 19th century can afford a pure gold pocket watch with insignial embeded on it.

Actually, most people in England (and in "Continental" Europe, too) were poor and lived either as farmers, craftsmen, or day laborers (this became more common due to the industrialization).

Hm, I must say, this chapter was indubitably tasteful in expressing the female form and the friendships that form between women.

really? I just saw bewwwwwbs...

this is so tactful...
