A very enticing and unique heartfelt story given off from both of these manga's. Even though Otoyomegatari is set in a different time period and country, both have a similar tone pertaining the lifestyles and cultures of the protagonists. The two narratives demonstrate a passionate romantic struggle as situations that lead to terrible conflicts fight to tear apart the main characters relationship.
Similar erotic atmosphere regarding the relationships between characters in both stories. In the two manga's the main characters want to express and keep their feelings secret, because the relationships they want would be frowned upon and degrading of their stature. Both stories while sometimes it can be cruel and traumatic they also have a very heartwarming, touching, and deep ambience combined with a well paced told story.
These two are both Manhua, with both beautiful drawing and interesting plots... Story wise, they arent very similar, however, as I read the manga, the atmosphere I felt as I read these two are similar, allowing me to relate from one to another.
