Reasons you might like A Bride's Story...

trottolina trottolina says...

Both stories deal with an older girl moving away from her home to marry a younger boy.   As she is from far away, not only does she have to get used to living with her new family, she also has to get used to new customs, new surroundings and new ways of thinking and doing things.  She also brings quite a lot of the latter two with her, which she is not afraid of sharing!

While I would originally find the premise a bit icky, due to the age of the boys (12 in the two stories), I found myself overlooking it completely so quickly was I drawn in by the characters in both the anime and the manga. 

These stories are about two people building a relationship which will help them to live their lives toghether.  A bit of romance enters into it, but no really age innapropriate passion.  So if you like historical, fantastical settings, slice-of-life scenes, and strong female characters, you'll like these!
