Added DiffLines:

* CoordinatedClothes: Azel and Baimat wear clothes and hats with similar design and patterns (also seen on Amir's clothes). Of the Halgal cousins, only Joruk wears a turban and an unpatterned vest. We get an explanation in the author's corner of volume 9. Azel and Baimat (and of course Amir) hail from the father's side of the family, thus their clothes bear similar crests. Joruk on the other hand is a cousin from the mother's side.

* CulturalPosturing: Possibly crossed with MuggingTheMonster. At least some of the nomads seem to see the Russian newcomers not as people from [[TsaristRussia a huge nation with hundreds of thousands of soldiers]] but as little more than savages from the borderlands or another tribe that can be repelled by at best a couple hundred fighters with a few cannons. [[ForegoneConclusion Yeah]], about thatů

* ForegoneConclusion: Not with the story itself, but the setting.

This gives an almost decade-long likely margin (between 1830 and 1838) for the series's epoch. The beginning of the Russian colonial conquest of Turkestan is normally dated to 1865.)[[/note]] the [[TsaristRussia Russians will have moved in, set up puppet-states (Khiva, Bukhara, etc.) or annexed the area, and started a long period of Russification and economic development]]. The nomads will be made to contribute taxes or be forcibly relocated somewhere much less pleasant if they rebel.\\\

* ShownTheirWork: As usual, Mori takes this to extremes and her work is that much better for it. For example, while Mori made the common mistake of depicting the Japanese hold of the bowstring in chapter 1, she was told about it, learned the correct, different Central Asian hold, and [[InvokedTrope specifically depicted it]] in chapter 62.

This is already foreshadowed from Chapter 30 onward, when Amir's tribe ally themselves with the Russian-aligned Badan tribe in order to raze Karluk's town, seize their land and get Amir back. Due to their links with the Russians, the Badan have ample Russian weaponry, which they promise to place at the Halgals' disposal. In the ensuing battle, [[spoiler:the Badan betray the Halgals, seeking to seize the town and get rid of their "allies" at the same time. No doubt the Badan are doing the Russians' dirty work for them.]] Even though Karluk's hometown prevails, it, and the whole region, will eventually bend the knee to the Tsar, and [[UsefulNotes/JosephStalin Stalin]] after him.

The end comment of the magazine version of Chapter 62 further hints at the troubling times ahead for the region:
-->"Students of history may be aware of certain events that Karluk would indeed do well to prepare for. It seems it may be less a matter of if, but when, Dear Reader..."
