You may not have heard of the original author of the light novel Kujira Tokiwa , but chances are you’ve already seen Hise Momoyama Previous artworks – Momoyama’s Carnage arc, Dawn of the Golden Witch and a spinoff of Lyu from the manga. Perhaps even more impressively, I wouldn’t necessarily be able to tell without checking; Momoyama has a talent for adapting art to the atmosphere of the story, resulting in such a diverse set of works. now at‘ manga adaptation, Momoyama used a more classic
Girl style, sophisticated dresses and backgrounds, takes us into the pseudo-European world Kujira Tokiwa
Set in roughly similar places to the late 18th century, the story tells the story of Constance Grail, a young lady who unfortunately belongs to a family , but took their motto of sincerity a little too seriously. Her father couldn’t understand that not everyone could possibly be as kind as he was, leaving the family in financial trouble. Now, the only way for them to recoup their losses (and pay off the debt he took on for his “friend”) is for Connie to marry Neil, the son of a wealthy merchant family. She wasn’t thrilled, but she wasn’t terribly opposed to the idea either, and thought she might as well follow her father’s example and be her most sincere person.
Sadly, just like her father, she also naively assumed the sincerity and loyalty of others, which quickly bit her. Neil has a lover, Lady Pamela, who finds Constance disgusting (probably just because she can; she’s just the typical social mean girl), when all three of them are invited to the Grand Merillian ball , Pamela tried to humiliate Connie out of society. If this sounds like the plot of your average Regency romance novel, then you’re not far off – Grand Merillian not only resembles venues like London’s Almack meeting room, but twittering social housewives also have a contemporary ( and not so contemporary) is described in the novel. The whole thing can be drawn entirely from Georgette Heyer’s novel, right down to the way the art shows women’s clothing: wealthy ladies dress stylishly, with lower waists and longer, fuller skirts, like and more elaborate accessories, while Kang Ni’s dress, while not outright dated, is still more modest and innocent than almost everyone else’s, making her identity very apparent in her environment. (Men, it is worth noting, are more sophisticated Century frock coats and knee-length breeches.) Even the way housewives used fans was appropriate for that era, when a woman So called Cut Direct (ignore her) when given to another woman, it carries weight.
Of course, Georgette Heyer probably didn’t write a scene like when poor Constance was publicly cornered by Pamela. Constance is suddenly possessed by a ghost—or rather, the ghost of Scarlet Castile, though Connie doesn’t realize it. In the story’s opening credits, six-year-old Connie accidentally barges into the public execution of Scarlett, who is severely condemned as the most evil woman in society, as her dying curse may confirm. (Or maybe it won’t… This answer is beyond the scope of this comic volume, which only covers about a quarter of the first novel.) Scarlet seems to be hovering around the Great Merion until Constance can Enter it, not knowing she is a ghost, notice her and tell her she can go in. At this point, all we know is that Scarlett will come to help Connie when no one wants to. Whether she does it because Constance is being nice to her, or because she knows what it feels like to be blamed for something you didn’t do, remains to be seen. But in either case, you wouldn’t expect someone to be beheaded for allegedly trying to murder the woman whose fiancé left her, although it does draw an interesting line between the situation Connie found herself in and Scarlett’s life parallel lines.
From this manga roll, it feels like something is going to happen Very close to the source material. In fact, Momoyama says a lot in the afterword – an adaptation as faithfully as possible is the route they want to go. That’s a bonus because it really means that whether you read the manga or the light novel, you’re going to get the same story and details, which is rare in a way. Anyway, I definitely recommend picking one or the other, because not only is there an interesting character dynamic between Connie and Scarlett (which Connie doesn’t know yet), but the world feel and details are great, and there’s an element of mystery that makes Just starting to look up. It’s worth noting that the mention of Moirae (Fates) is almost a blink of an eye, and you’ll miss it – because if Fates existed, the title would have taken on a more sinister tone: Eris or Discordia, after all, are goddesses of discord. 18
