I like that art porn just fine. It doesn't need a plot, it has DETAILS. =p
There's a video of the artist drawing and shading an image on Youtube, I should see if I can dig up the link.

I was just shocked to realize the mangaka is the one behind Emma. Though it had similar details. And the heroine as an ideal wife is a bit like super-maid, albeit said ideal includes kickass riding and archery.

Not that there's anything wrong with a maid fetish.

I roll to disbelieve "futon" in 19th century Central Asia, though.
