Ask me about the hate crime perpetrated against a gay black man, and how it was a real hate crime and totally not fabricated. I am well acquainted with the facts of this actual hate crime which actually took place in actuality.

when will secondo stop being bad? that is really something you ask about things which were at some point not bad.

Otoyomegatari is good and so is that chapter of food porn

Good taste
I am attempting to read Otoyomegatari; I enjoy the Artistic Detail and Intense Rendering; however I am not able to feel Companionable toward the Human Characters due to their distorted Faces; and over large Eyes; their Appearance is insectile and fundamentally alienating. Further more I am distracted by the presence of Japanese Honorifics [-chan; -san; -sama; etcetera) in the Script; the Setting is clearly Antique Caucasian or Middle Eastern and the Character Names indicate that a predominantly Turkic tongue should be found there in; in fact it is un feasible that these Characters would have any knowledge of Japan (then known as Nippon) or the Japanese People; much less that they should have sufficient familiarity with the Japanese Language to adopt Loan Words in the form of Honorifics; and the implicit Societal Order. This is a Grave Error; I can not abide it.

I'd say you should post this over at the Historical Manga Thread, see how well that goes over for you

That being said, there's not much to do if you can't get into the art (Kaoru Mori is one of the best manga artists and she puts a ton of research into her setting to accurately depict the fashion of the time, but if you can't deal with manga eyes, whatever) and as for the translation, blame translators, they're translating Japanese text that was written for a Japanese audience (maybe so the JP audience wasn't alienated and they could relate and understand the culture Mori is depicting).

Otoyomegatari is sold in English by Yen Press (here's an Amazon link) so you can check out their translation to see if it jives with you more.

I'll read it from time to time and the extensive number of curries in the series is really cool and tasty, but yeah it's the (and not even in the fun way like Food Wars, it's always girls getting the short end of the stick) which is why I wouldn't rec it personally.
