Are you sure the "court lady with heavy makeup" isn't a crossdresser? It sure as hell looks like a man in drag.

And it was on p. 18 that the asian version of "Das Parfüm" ("The Perfume") began.

Gah, I can't imagine what would make someone think giving their unrequited lust object underoos sewn together with their hair would be sexy. Gah!

Hey, does MaoMao already know about monocle guy? Did his name get passed round the red light district or something?

@Thiron The outer court is official business area so like Maomao said they are secretaries, not handmaids, the girls in the inner court are, for lack of a better word ( more elegant at least ), breeders. Their principal "utility" is to procreate, so even if there is the upper echelon between them that are "high" born some of the intermediary levels of them can have girls of different walks of life, hence different levels of education and "qualifications".

It is a messed up system? Undoubtedly. But in that age, it was the norm so to speak.

It doesn't make sense that outer court girls have high qualifications while the inner court don't...

How did an unknown background girl like her even get to inner court the first time...

This is an interesting arc. And Jinshi is so cute, curious about that building and how the woman didn’t want her going there

Seriously this needs an anime. Love the pics at the end, thanks!

lady lady please interact with that cordyceps fungus less please... all it takes for that fungus to start killing people is a mutation and some bad luck

that one calm "lady" sure looks masculine. more so than Jinshi at least, although that's not saying much. although, wouldn't her voice give something away if she was actually male?

That gacha Discord bot mentioned in the translator's notes is the devil. The deeeeviiiiil!

cover page : other lame girls hug cute , fluffy , stuffed animals while sleeping ? screw that , i will hug this gross , dead bug , while dreaming about cute , fluffy , deadly poisons .

page 10 : "you are abalone and pork , and im chicken bone" . i think she is subtly insulting them , her meaning is that they are fatter than her a lot , lol .

so the bug cordyceps is kind of a wedding gift from Jinshi to Mao Mao ? it made her sign the wedding contract on the spot . a gross , dead bug is really the most romantic , most charming , cutest wedding gift , lol .

"hey Mao Mao , you are so noisy and making a lot of weird sounds at night . try to go easy on your m@sturb@tings , ok ?"

page 18 : "extracting human 's scent and turning it into pefume" is the plot of this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume:_The_Story_of_a_Murderer_(film) .

page 22 : the old maid gives her the nickname Shao Mao = Little Cat , probably .

page 9 : so the newbie hazing ends with just a light slap ? i want to see another kind of hazing between girls , like special kissing training , lol . these lot of harlots , corner a cute girl to the wall and haze her .

@gwenyn Hard work and bad living condition can make people look older. Thanks to our advanced healthcare, good food and medicine, modern people look younger than previous generations. At the time period of this manga, life expectancy was only 50 and 15 was already an adult.
