Our customer reviews

Although I'm not taken to the slice-of-life genre, A Bride's Story is a great manga that should be the standard for all slice-of-life manga. Set in the 19th century of Asia, A Bride's Story follows 20-year-old Amir as she adjusts to her new life as a bride to 12-year-old Karkluk. Unlike Amir and Karkluk's sudden marriage, A Bride's Story has a good pace and the artwork is absolutely stunning. As an avid manga reader, I didn't expect to see such fine detail in everything--the eyes of the characters, the fashionable clothing, and the backdrops. The manga creator also knew when to subtract backgrounds and give scenes an impact the reader will remember. From the beginning to the very end, A Bride's Story doesn't fall in impact; it only rises in quality.show more
