The Water Dragon’s Bride is one of the newest series published under Viz Media’s Shojo Beat imprint and falls under the fantasy and romance area. The story opens with Ashai’s father calling her outside to look at the new decoration he got for their pond. Once she takes a look at it and turns to leave, the water either takes her through time or to another world.
Back in December when browsing Barnes & Noble I was browsing the manga section when the 3-in-1 edition of Uzumaki, the full series, caught my eye. I sat down and began reading it, getting a little over 1/10th into it before I had to go. This was, without a doubt, the most hooking manga I have read to date.
Last summer I read the first two volumes of Honey So Sweet as they were the only ones available at the time, and now that more English translations have since been published I went ahead and got them through my library to read, as I’m really liking the series now.
I don’t really remember how I stumbled across the Honey So Sweet manga series, but when I did I was like “hey this sounds cute, let me see if my library has it! *checks* hey they do, let me go get it!”. Thus I did. Viz is currently in the process of publishing all six volumes, with a new one coming out every three months. The third volume was released at the start of July, which I am currently awaiting for my library to get a copy of for me.
So far, with two of the six volumes read, I’m really enjoying it. It’s fun watching (well, reading…) Kogure and Onsie go from not knowing anything about the other person aside from rumors to being in love with each other. Just like the story itself, the artwork is great too.
