Nardio Manga Review
IS The Water Dragons Bride Vol. 1 WORTH YOUR TIME?
WHAT DID WE THINK WITHOUT SPOILING IT?
A lot of time is spent world building here. This feels like a short teaser read that lays the ground work for something epic.
I bought The Water Dragons Bride purely for it’s cover art. I had a feeling there was going to be a good story here and darnit, I was right! The Water Dragons Bride Vol. 1 is a dark fantasy story about a normal little girl who is thrust into a world as dark and fanciful as the ones created by the brothers Grimm.
This isn’t a happy story, but there is hope, there is wonder and it is engaging. Volume one was 192 pages, but it felt much shorter than that. I don’t know why, but this was a wonderful and dark tease into a seemingly much larger story. I loved it. I loved that our heroine is just a scared little girl. I love that she has a realistic amount of spunk to her. I love that she isn’t special. This is a story about a kid in a very bad situation.
I loved it.
The art was really interesting and story felt solid.
