On a visit to a city in the far west of Asia, a British girl named Nicola falls in love. The object of her affection is Mimar, a man who works at the city's bazaar—yet despite her attempts, he turns her down. Upon returning home to England, the ache of her unrequited love festers. After years spent obtaining wealth, fame, and the Secret of the World, Nicola returns to the bazaar to exact her deadly revenge upon Mimar and those he holds dearest.

Preliminary (2/7 eps)
TL;DR: This manga misrepresents and bastardizes foreign cultures for the sake of a cool aesthetic. It spreads misinformation and is based on poor/no research. It is basically an orientalist work I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
