    I've been getting this series from Crazy's Manga. Which has become my second-stop place for downloading manga after ST. (Hint: they get new chapters up is series they carry quickly.)

    I just started reading this series last week, and have been kicking the 'Net for Not Telling Me that Kaoru Mori had started a new series until several chapters were out. I love the story so far -- including in-laws who (gasp!) like their son's new bride -- and the art ... oh, the art. Mori has leveled up in drawing skill, and given what she could do in Emma, that's saying something.

    ah yes crazy's manga... i almost forgot about them... i used to get to-love-ru there before redhawk pickup the scanlation... thanks mate...

    and for the art.. i know.. and the liking of the traditional culture (uzbekistan i think)... the dresses, the way people lived.. damn she good... and for me this is no shota, this is more historical then any manga out there...

    Nope, not shotacon -- the heroine is fully aware that her husband isn't ready for that stuff yet, and is more concerned with building a household with him than a sexual relationship.

    For those who don't know the premise, the series is set some time in the mid-19th century in central Asia, and starts when the heroine, who is 20, arrives at the village of her arranged husband, who is 12. Coming from a more nomadic tribe than his, she has some aculturation to do -- but she also comes with some impressive skillz. And, what with Mori's art skill upgrade, a total babe. Hubba.

    i change my view.. (see this is why i need the manga offline)..

    y'see in a tribe like this, were your childrens still living with the parent even after they married, got two possibilities that emerged:
    >1st materlineal. where the owner of the house is the women and the groom is the one that are being 'trade' (please be noted that this is not a negative thing) to that house. meaning the man doesnt has anything begin with, no land no house, except those from his trousseau....this happen when the land is more important than the people that worker on it (male.. even though the female also work too) its a culture that are based on argiculture
    my tribe is materlineal.... my grandma has a very very very huge land + a paddy field, but i will end up with not even a small piece of that..

    >2nd patrilineal. where the owner of the house is the men and the bride is the one that are being 'trade' (again please be noted that this is not a negative thing) to that house. meaning the woman doesnt has anything begin with, no land no house, except those from her trousseau....this happen when the worker is more important than the land. as in the land is soo fricking huge there, that make nobody even bother to take it. its a culture that are based on herding livestock, which need more man power to work on. this is why they won't let their sons to live in another family. every man are counted.
    although we could see that the land there has indeed become more and more scarse... the price of civilization

    this mean that you couldn't have your sons and your daughters at the same house after they got married. it's either the sons or the daugters (pick one)
    that's where i got confuse before.. whos house is this?? which ones is the sons and which ones is the daughters

    since the grandma is an exnomad then the owner of the house is the grandpa.. ayhan would be their son while. ayhan's wife prolly also a settler just like their 1st daughterinlaw.. karluk is their second son and amira is his wife (exnomad)...
    i hope i'm not making another mistake

    No, you're quite right -- it's a patrilocal family. It's not clear whether it's patrilineal or matrilineal tho'. (There being a difference whether descent is counted through father or mother and whether the bride moves in with the groom's family or vice versa. These often align, but for an example of a patrilineal matrilocal society, see the aristocracy of Heian era Japan.) Grandmother and Our Heroine both moved from the steppes into their husband's household in the town, and the Heroine's brother-in-law is mentioned at some point as the son of the middle generation, so sister-in-law also moved in. I haven't seen any mention of whether middle generation is son or daughter of the grandparents, but son is the most likely.

    i think this is a patrilineal patrilocal. the fact that the bride only bring her trousseau (which i don't think a land or a flok of herd). is one thing. and there's also the problem of the amira's family. it give me the impression that it was the man that get the inheritance and the property (why did his grandpa died anyway? )... when concerning the property and inheritance it become the mens problem....

    and there is also the fact that this somewhere in uzbekistan where the influence of the arabic culture is strong (i'm not refering to Islam here, alot of people can't make the differents and end up badmouthing Islam). so it's definitely patrilineal... and there's also the fact that most patrilocal is patrilineal.
