The Water Dragon’s Bride Vol. 05, by Rei Toma | Manga Review #51

This review contains spoilers.

35742738A modern-day girl gets whisked away to a strange land where she is sacrificed to a water dragon god!

In the blink of an eye, a modern-day girl named Asahi is whisked away from her warm and happy home and stranded in a strange and mysterious world where she meets a water dragon god!

Asahi is in danger because people want to use her to get the water dragon god’s power. She doesn’t want anyone to be hurt because of her, so she goes with the water dragon god and Subaru to pay a visit to the emperor. However, in exchange for his protection, the emperor makes an unexpected demand!


In the last (4th) volume we saw that the Water Dragon posed as a human to not only become closer to Asahi, but to keep an eye on her and the people around her as well. That’s what I believe, anyway. It’s been so long since I read the fourth volume, haha.

In this volume we see a character that I don’t remember seeing in the third volume! I remember not liking this character, but he did add a little thrill to the story. I remember not liking this character because he seemed to be pompous and annoying…

It’s not a Water Dragon story if there isn’t someone fighting over Asahi! It kind of annoys me that there are different people, factions if you will, kidnapping Asahi for their own gain. But it warms my heart that the Water Dragon is there almost every time to rescue her.

Also, the Water Dragon is totally a tsundere.

The “Love Festival” was something that when I figured out what it was (at the exact same time that Asahi found out) I laughed.

We uncovered Tsukihiko’s back story, and it’s way more interesting than what I had imagined it to be.

I love that Asahi is teaching the Water Dragon about their emotions. I enjoyed the fact that the Water Dragon was shocked when Asahi asked if he was angry.

What I genuinely love about this series is that each volume is easy to read, the flow of the story is great, and I am able to read a volume fairly quickly.

Overall I loved this volume. I’m not too excited for the next one because I can already feel the tension. But who am I kidding? I love this story. BRING ON THE NEXT ONE!

I give this volume, 4 stars.

Happy Reading!
