Tamahiko Shima is the youngest son of the powerful and wealthy Shima family. Blessed with great fortune since his childhood, he grew up wanting nothing but affection from his oftentimes distant family.

After losing his mother and crippling his dominant arm in an accident, Tamahiko fell into deep despair and is cast aside by his own father for his handicap. Condemned to live isolated in the countryside where he would not bring shame to his family's name, he resigned himself to dying alone—until one day, a young girl named Yuzuki Tachibana appeared on his doorstep, proclaiming that Tamahiko's father sent her to be his bride.

As she takes care of Tamahiko, Yuzuki brings a feeling of springtime into Tamahiko's dreary life, allowing him to gradually heal from the deep emotional scars of his youth. Their lives slowly intertwine as both Tamahiko and Yuzuki taste the fruits of their first love.

tl;dr: A story with really solid character development built upon really solid, and adorable, relationship development built upon a surprisingly solid plot. 

This was much more interesting than I thought. Based on the description, I expected it to be mostly lighthearted fluff without that much intensity, focused primarily on just being cute and sweet. While the core relationship certainly does produce a very strong stream of cute and sweet moments, there's a lot more to than just that though. The characters have a really good amount of depth, with backgrounds that greatly impact them and personalities with flaws, both of which play a major part in the ...

Taishou Otome Otogibanashi is more of a wholesome wish fulfillment for men than a wholesome series for all. There’s nothing wrong with it, if anything this manga is about a very good relationship, but the complete, total, endless kindness and devotion of the female lead, certain points of her personality, and harem-like bath scenes later in the series make the targeted audience of this manga a bit smaller than you'd expect initially. That’s the reason I am writing a contrarian review for it, because I didn’t know it when I started. I also don’t think it’s 10/10 evenly along its course. (Don’t attack me, guys, ...

Preliminary (12/42 eps)
The biggest problem is the characters. Mainly the MC being such a spineless push over like when he always ignores his fiancee every time something bad happens to him. This ends up breaking his fiancee's heart. At one point a girl thief broke into his house and actually managed to seduce/trick this excuse of a man that already has a loving partner. I kept seeing everyone blaming Ryou the girl thief for causing the drama and heartbreak but evidently the MC also did fuck all to handle the situation. From what I've seen, the father has every right to criticize and shun this useless son.
