A 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!
Unable to return home, Asahi grows into a lovely young woman. As a priestess, she must spend time with the water dragon god for a ritual every year, but because of her connection to the water dragon god’s power, someone kidnaps her! Will Asahi be able to escape unscathed?
The story in this third volume of The Water Dragon’s Bride actually moves pretty quickly. There were some new characters that were introduced and I’m sure we’ll see again in the fourth volume.
I think what I like about this third volume the most is that this book is told as they are teenagers!!! Asahi and Subaru, that is. Everyone else is a little older as well. But the story, for the most part, is still very much Asahi, Subaru, and the Water God.
What I didn’t like about this story was that Asahi was kidnapped. But, it was rather interesting. As an afterthought though, it kind of feels like the story is just getting thrown together.
What I enjoyed about this third volumes was that the Water God is slowly being more intrigued by Asahi. I hope that one day the Water God will love Asahi. I hope that’s the way that this manga will go.. I genuinely enjoyed reading that the Water God has in their own way developed feelings for Asahi.
I actually quite like the Tree God, too. Tree God is honestly more caring and it shows. Actually come to think of it, all of these Gods are really well planned out. What they each represent is how they act as well.
I’m very pleased with how the story is going. I like how involved in the story I feel, when I’m reading the books. Though I’m kind of saddened by the fact that the series isn’t close to finishing like i thought it was. After I read the fourth one, I have to wait even longer for the 5th one to come out in English, and for my library to acquire them.
I give this 3rd volume 3.5 stars!
