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?

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 ...

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. Anyways this manga is one of those manga that seem interested in the beginning and then you get really attached to the characters themselves until the end of the series.
