|Blissful Land – volume one is a slow-paced, historical slice of life manga with romantic undertones. Set in 18th century Tibet, we follow Kang Zhipa, a 13-year-old doctor in training as he goes about his daily village life.|
Soon Kang discovers he is to be betrothed to Moshi Rati, a perfect, beautiful young woman with a passion for cloth-dyeing and a love of weaving.
There isn’t really too much to say about the first volume of Blissful Land, as not too much happens. There is little conflict, characters appear widely flawless (although Kang’s sister is stubborn, she has a good heart; Rati herself may be a little forgetful at times, but is generally a little too good to be true), and there’s no real driving storyline.
If you are a fan of historical romances or slice-of-life manga, this could be a series worth checking out. If you’re looking for something with a more compelling plot, meaningful character development, or memorable relationships, I wouldn’t put this one at the top of your reading list I’m afraid.
