You may recall Kaoru Mori received the 2014 Taisho award for her work on Otoyomegatari. As thanks, she whipped up a map of the central asia region and clarified some real-world inspirations for the designs of her characters! Link above goes back to source post and raw image, my translation is below:
It’s been a while but I went ahead and polished off chapter 20 of Spirit Circle, for anyone without access to Crunchyroll: Read Online
I am still continuing work on this series, as promised, albeit at a slow pace.
New Otoyome-Gatari! It’s got a bunch more naked ladies!
The costume I have done by 2011/04, One of my favorite Japan comic “A Bride’s Story(乙嫁語り).
Actually the English name of this comic on Japanese version cover was “The Bride’s Stories” ^^;
This dress is the one of the most difficult costume I have done ^^; I spend one and half years to search…
Otoyomegatari chapter 38: Naps
37 and 38 are both a little short because Kaoru Mori was jetting off to the Salon du Livre conference in Paris to accept an award and sign autographs. She also has a Shirley story in May’s issue of Haruta magazine (I will not be doing it any time soon), so we should see more Otoyome in June.
come on Smith keep it in the pants
Otoyomegatari 37 is here! It’s got bunch of naked ladies in it!
I still owe you guys one more chapter, but it’s a short one due to Mori’s trip to France at the time. Watch for it this weekend.
Brides Tale updates are coming soon, expect chapters today or tomorrow
Yes! But also, yes. SC has unfortunately been bumped a few spots down the list, behind Bride’s Tale and the end-of-semester grind.
Once again, Deb Aoki’s come through with another interview from the Salon du livre in Paris that proves that Kaoru Mori is the cutest mangaka alive.

You can find Kaoru Mori’s work in English! Bride Stories is taken care of by the lovely Yen Press, and Emma was put out by DelRey before they shut down, if you scour internet used book stores. In French her publisher is Éditions Ki-oon.
Translation under the cut!
