Wow, devil birds, that's an unexpected and interesting threat to find in a fantasy/medieval setting.

Ugh, I keep thinking her name is "Princess Student" because that's what "Aluna" means in my native language.

Talk about a TBT. I really like the story and I wish to see more manga with a story line. I like the NSFW but I need a story and character development of some sorts.

Yo this manga is such a trip. Prostitutes, super ravens that can’t be killed by arrows and an inkling of a ship that ends on the next page

I find this interesting. It really drives home (what with buying maidens and one of them dying shortly thereafter) how hard she believes she has nothing left to give. Loved by her people, but not as a person. To have never felt the joy of loving, where she can wield a cursed blade and know full well it will kill her in the end
Imo, I feel that the "main girl" protag hooks up with will either be a companion that's stuck with her through hell raven slaying, or its going to be the raven she's persuing (like, idk, a human-like raven, or a witch controlling the ravens)
edit looking at the title page, I'm going to guess the latter
Anywho, this looks interesting

This is surprisingly serious for a Mira work. I kept having to remind myself that this was indeed the same "Mira." I look forward to the next chapter.

I generally do not like Mira's work, but I am definitely her fan now after this and Candy Moon.

Oh, you're Brazilian?
(I'm not, I just google translated that word)

Anyway, manga by Mira that's old, delicate and not a sequel or doujin? I'm in.

I wonder how Mira went from writing unorthodox fantasy with lesbians to just drawing porn nowadays?

She found her calling? She came to learn to draw protracted sex scenes, whereas earlier she couldn't? Any number of reasons, really.

Extremely dark and uncomfortable, especially about prostitutes and poverty and deaths. It's also kinda unlogical: age and world where you can just say "Um, no thanks, I won't suck some old guy's dick because of political bullshit", and lesbianism isn't exactly prohibited, but prostitution exists and the women are sold nonetheless. This is unrealistic.

I like Mira's late works because of lesbian world she created with (almost) no signs of men, and there this setting would fit. But the story in this one and in Candy Moon are more pleasant and serious. It's kinda even deep here and more realistic and detailed in terms of character development.

Well, I'll read it anyway. Hope it gets less, um, whory?

No? That's not how any of this works and those are all completely separate matters. TL;DR is the aristocracy (never mind now the royalty) has ever lived by very different rules than the commoners, most cultures have had a tendency to treat itinerant entertainers as just about social untouchables and the female ones as glorified prostitutes, poor women have always resorted to selling their bodies to make ends meet and in the case you somehow forgot prostitution is still kind of a thing nowadays. Indeed there's a good case to be made for its legalisation to help curb the nastier byproducts of the procession and enfranchising those engaging in it.

Also women selling their sexual services is something very different from "women are sold" - indeed these ones don't even work through some kind of middleman (a "pimp" or "madam") and there's zero indication of this society having provisions for treating people as a tradeable commodity (AKA "slavery").

Leaving that BS aside I'm pretty impressed by the level of atmosphere and broad-strokes worldbuilding Mira's managing in a small number of pages here. Also that's some mythologically loaded name, curious to see if and which myths the story's going to reference...

Thank you for laying out the facts, sir/madam.

Yeah, yeah, everything is unrelated and separate, culture is born from a vacuum and other stories I'll read in my next life.
