The story of a girl who slips back in time to a different era. While playing in her family's garden, Asahi gets sucked in by the small pond and when she wakes up she finds herself in a place that seems like Japan from ancient times. A powerful clan takes her in, but the reason for their kindness is that they intend to sacrifice her to the water god, the dragon, to be his bride... Now that she is at the mercy of a god who appears to know no compassion, what will Asahi's fate be?

If you are looking for a story of pure love while hoping to understand the connections among existence, feelings, and emotions. This beautifully written manga is for you. You know what? It has a great ending too~~ ;)
Oh boi, according to my female friends who follow this manga, you better prepare a box of tissue because this story is gonna cause quite some amount of “Sui” (水, Kanji for water in Japanese) from your eyes (╥_╥)

!!Minor Spoilers!!

PSA: The first part was written after I read the initial 7 volumes and that's what my praise refers to. I've just finished the remaining volumes and my... opinion on that lies below the initial review, under the spoiler warning (because I discudd the very ending, so read only if you're fine with that).

I'm amazed by this *shoujo* manga.

(no spoilers per-se ahead, just some general comments about overall character development and their relationship used to illustrate my points. The front cover posted above can tell you about as much as I have below, so feel free to read on, unless you wish to go into read more

One of my favorite manga and I'm soo glad I finished reading it. It took me 2 years to read it due to me forgetting about the series and waiting for it to be translated.

For me this manga gave me that feeling and that's why it so amazing. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me frustrated, tbh i had all kinds of emotions reading it which makes it read more

I'd love to give it somewhere between 8 and 9, but since I've only read 17 chapters I'll leave it as an 8 for now.

Minor spoilers:

So I've read some stories in which the main guy reluctantly falls in love with the girl he somehow is put in charge of for some reason. Or stories where the king/god/demon quickly falls in love with the normal protagonist... somehow. These are pretty common in manga, and while I enjoy them, in some cases I wonder exactly why our male protagonist falls head over heels in love for seemingly not much reason.

In this story, I didn't really feel that read more
