I agree with bip0larbear. At first, I couldn't pinpoint what makes this manga uninteresting yet appealing. But the I read, bip0larbear comment, that is the most perfect answer I find about what is wrong with Suijin no Hanayome. The art is beautiful, but each character is rather flat, the relationship is awkward and the storyline is lukewarm. I'm not even sure, what the mangaka intended with these characters.

I've read up to chapter 15 and there seems to be no clear objective to the story so far other than the MC trying to get back home to the modern era. The series does touch upon philosophical questions about human nature but it just scratches the surface. I find the main male lead (water dragon god) somewhat interesting compared to all the other characters because he seems atypical and not so much like your stereotypical romantic interest. He reminds me of Tomoe from Kamisama Hajimemashita albeit a bit less relatable. However, this is where my main criticism of the series comes in though. The series is primarily romance but because the main male lead is thus so far static and romantically unappealing concerning the MC that it makes the romance aspect fall flat. The MC does not like him that way and I would find it weird if she ever did after seeing and experiencing what he does to her and to people around her. Also, the side characters are the most lacking so far. They don't seem to exist for any other purpose then to be awkward, comedic fodder for advancing the relationship between the MC and the lead. And because of that, I find their interactions lacking. The series would have been better had there been a clear goal / objective / subject and the romance had been secondary. It has a good theme that could be developed into more but the storyline is nonexistent and the characters abstract and incomprehensive. Buuuuut then again, this is up to chapter 15 that I've read so far. Maybe it'll redeem itself somewhere down the line but so far I'm not impressed. :/

Rather than a manga I'm of the opinion that this would do better as a isekai light novel series instead. It might touch on depths that are otherwise difficult to in manga format and make character interactions much more interesting.

I would recommend Niehime to Kemono no Ou if looking for another series like this one. It's more of a cute and fluffy read and pulls off the theme better IMHO. Or Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou if light novels are also your thing.

I'm really loving this one so far. It's beautifully-paced and it has so many interesting elements. It has some really dark and twisted moments--and characters!--but it's not so grim that you lose interest. Moreover, the protagonist is simply so adorable that she counteracts the darkness of the events--and people!--around her. I really hope Argo keeps up the amazing work!!

edit: I am loving this series so much! I just read the latest update by Argo. I wish I could help him/her with this work since I love it so much, but I don't know how. Anyway, thank you, Argo!!!

It seems pretty fun so far. I'm not fully caught up and I can see where the similarities are with "Bride of the Water God" but I would say that the stories seem different. I also cannot really tell which guy she is gonna end up with and that's part of why I need to find the next volume of this!

Note: So my friend actually lent me the first volume to read in Japanese so there were some words and parts that I did not understand HOWEVER, I had a lot of fun reading the story on the bus.

Mysstris says: "However I am quite wary of this series as it seems to draw on a familiar shoujo trope of a dominating and ruthless male lead with a spunky resisting young girl (literally a child) who will undoubtedly touch the cold heart male lead."

HECK YES! I'm signed up. Can't wait for some more chapters. wink

The question of gods and the relationship to humans

For the plot itself, it is quite a combination of fairy tale. The most prevalent fairy tale evoked is the little mermaid with the image a disney version of Ariel. Asahi, the young girl is quite reminiscent of Ariel in appearance and circumstance. Additionally the story conjures up a manga of a similar title as well but quite differently executed, "Bride of the Water God."
However I am quite wary of this series as it seems to draw on a familiar shoujo trope of a dominating and ruthless male lead with a spunky resisting young girl (literally a child) who will undoubtedly touch the cold heart male lead. Also there is no doubt that the little girl will one day grow up to an attractive red haired and green eyed beauty so....the trope is building itself up.
Nevertheless, what drives the story as I read it is the question of gods and their relationship to humans. This issue is quite drawn out from different perspectives that ultimately makes every party appear human including the gods. I find that discussions about this story result in intriguing thoughts about this relationship which in that sense makes this series quite a worthwhile read despite a shoujo trope horizon (fingers crossed it won't happen though).
