Dragon Life


I used to be a human girl. I can’t recall my name. Because I’ve turned into a female dragon. What’s more, in a certain kingdom I am considered a sacred dragon. My diet consists of humans… Eh? Humans? It seems that after eating a human, that human’s magical power is what sustains me. How G R O S S. By now I’ve gotten used to it and eat without batting an eyelid though.

Eeh. I want to live, too. I’m a type of dragon called an “Earth Dragon”, which for generations have formed contracts with humans in a certain kingdom, leading that kingdom to victory in war against another kingdom that they are on bad terms with.

I don’t care about that. I want to live in peace. Since I’ve come to an alternate reality, I want to live in tranquility. However, when living together with my fluffy rabbit friend, I got branded as a “man-eating dragon”. Growing tired of those sent to vanquish me, I entered human society, ending up serving in the castle, where tasty looking humans abounded.

When I felt down about my job, I was immediately informed that I had been selected for personal-reassignment. I’m to clean the 4th Knight Corps resting quarters. There I met a lineup of top grade ingredient tasty looking humans.

It’s a one of a kind type of story. It’s full of mystery, philosophy, self reflection, drama, adventure, fleshed out characters and slow burning romance. Not to say it doesn’t have plot holes but come on, it’s still a light novel, if this was edited to become a full fledged novel I’d buy it 100%. What includes? The protagonist is an actual Dragon, the weather disaster kind that can and does wipe out armies under its claws, fangs and breath. And she is conflicted but determined to live this way. These type of conflicts (balance between morals and reality) are rare in modern anime, manga and light novel because they center more on the powers, impressing those powers upon the impressionable witnesses and romance (harems and/or echi). As for the characters… I love them, they have roles outside the stereotypical ones. For example, the womanizer and hothead has more to his character than that, has a deep love and respect for his family and is rather honorable in a shy type of way. And like him all characters act outside the box, according to their individual situations and taking their backgrounds into account; unlike many other characters from popular series I could mention. There is character development, enough said. I hope this becomes more popular so there can be a manga and anime. I also sincerely thank the translators because they did a wonderful job even if some parts need editing.

So far, it’s my favourite light novel. I always loved story with a MC that has a secret identity or a secret life. I also like strong and independant female characters. And of course, I love dragons. Well, this light novel has it all. What to ask more ? And while it’s definitely not the focus of the story, it has a cute and slow romance too. Hopefully we will get more chapters soon !
