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.

I don't really have a plan on writing any reviews. But after seeing this one being almost unnoticed and not getting the attention it deserves I decided to write one. I wanted everyone to know that this manga is one of the greatest hidden gems that was serialized in Jump SQ. This is going to be my very first review, and probably my last so please let me have some of your time and read this.

If you like simple, cute, and pure romance, you'll definitely like this one. No love rivals, ship already sailing at the first few chapters, cute moments between the MC and read more

*Warning: spoilers for Taishou Otome Otogibanashi in story, plot and character arcs*

Taishou Otome Otogibanashi is one of the sweetest manga I’ve read. The story, while dealing with darker than expected tones about pre-war Japanese society and living with disability just ends up being so cute and sweet that I couldn’t help but have a big dumb grin on my face. The story itself is very engaging, and the plot progression makes it a very easy manga to read through in one day. The resolution of the problem our main characters face in the manga is very satisfying, and the ending just gives you diabetes.

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 read more

This is the first time I'll be writing a review here on MAL so please forgive me if it's unappealing. I'll try to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible.

Story: 9/10
Taishou Otome revolves around a pre-modern Japan setting in the Taishou era estimated during 1912 to 1926. The story follows Shima Tamahiko and how he deals with his depression of being thrown away by his family with the appearance of Yuzuki, whom is his bride to-be purchased by his father. Although it's nothing special, it's a nice change of pace from the modern setting of romance stories so definitely check out if you're a historical read more
