Holy shit, it's really weird to see a character, that has the same name as me (because my name is kinda rare). (And in manga, of all places.)

Thanks, Duralumin, for bringing us more of Mori Kaoru's great story.  I never fail to enjoy it.

Pariya is such a cutie~

The return to Pariya and focus of embroidery is awesome! That detailed art and the warm feeling is what made me hooked up to Kaoru Mori-sensei works. I'm happy she's back to that. :) Anis story isn't bad, but it's too dreamy and feels unrealistic.

Reading these chapters about Pariya and preparing her trousseau is so nice. It makes me want to find an embroidered tapestry to hang around my room. 

 

Also love the little bits of Amir's quirks and culture being brought into theirs

And thus Pariya is the second best bride, she's close to first but Amir is just to awesome.

I refuse to accept Pariya as second best. But... neither will I except Amir as second.

 

  ALL girl is best girl.

I don't know why but I find this chapter cute beyond words I could use to describe

the first couple will always be my favorite but d'aww pariya is so cute.........>w>

And thus Pariya is the second best bride, she's close to first but Amir is just too awesome.

They also were mine but only before Smith's arc when they  told to smith "If that is what her father wants there  is nothing you can do" when he was saying how unfair it was the thing that happened about his love problems and then when the father of  anis came back for her, at that moment i felt it was  hypocrite.

That's because before she's married, she's a part of her father's family. Meanwhile, Amir is already Karluk's wife thus making her a part of Karluk's family instead of her father's. That's how their society works and that's what normal for them. I might be wrong though, so feel free to correct my mistake.

But yeah, I have to agree that I wanted Mr.Smith's story to end in another way. :(

Careful Pariya, Granny is watching you!

Woof.

 

After a rough day, it's nice to sit back and relax. Reading Otoyomegatari always puts me in better spirits.

 

Go get the boy, Pariya!

I recommend doing a google image search for 'Central Asian embroidery', Mori's art is great but the real thing is amazing.   

 

Holy mother of God my mind was blown from those images! Imagining all these women doing it all by hand one stitch at a time... wow!

You make your 2. or more marriage in Islam in case of if this woman has no financial power like the status in manga, or if there are so many children or people that she have to take care. Maybe she is a forlorn. You cant live with a woman without marriage. I mean or you cant be in a house with her without marriage. So the way to take care her is marriage. -----But of course its from the very old times.---- And I cant deny its sexual dimention. Its a different thing from this. Of course there were "many people" use this chance(?) that way. 

 

 

I think this tradition comes Turks from Islam. Now it displays it was a bad thing now because of that "many people" or some people hate Muslims. Unlike the other cultures so this is the ***true*** way of 2. marriage in Islam. (Dont understand me wrong, Im explaining them that there wont be any misunderstandings. Its like a tabu in this days to defend(?) Islam.)

 

And today, you have to do this help women in other ways. Because 2. marriage is illegal in almost every country like here.

 

And there is very much more of this explanation. 

 

you know instead of saying 2 marriage or 2 or more marriage, why not say polygamy instead?

 

 

but for real, the rule of max wife was 4 , and thats it, but in some countries they had more, i guess its because even in the same religion, they had different understanding and basic other than others

Pariya marry me instead.  There are no other tsunderes so perfect as you.

Pariya a cute

Thank you for the new chapter. This one is a truly magnificent manga.

I hope that Pariya ends up with that guy.

8 pages?
Come on, that shouldn't even count as a chapter. 
 

 

Minamoto Blue Ball would disagree.
