My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An earthquake suddenly hits the Village of the Blue Dragon, and Yona and her friends are trapped! Will Yona manage to escape safely? And will the Blue Dragon join her on her journey? Meanwhile, Gija senses the presence of the Green Dragon!

This volume has the Seiryuu join our band of merry dragons, as well as the location of the next dragon revealed. It’s like an adventure quest now, collecting the dragons. Each of them have their own story, though, like how Seiryuu joins her because he starts to consider her a friend and is given a name by her. Jae-ha, the green dragon, though, doesn’t have plans to join in, and he has his own reasons for doing so. (Also, vigilante pirates FTW!) It’s like choice versus destiny, and though they all have a bond that goes back generations, there is also the fact that they can (mostly) choose to follow her. She keeps denying that she is the King Hiryuu, though (yeah right). What’s awesome is Ki Ja and Hak Son’s banter, and the chemistry between all of them. The story still feels a bit too convenient at this point, and I am waiting for some real obstacles to drop in. Until then, I am still enjoying the ride.

  1. The premise sounds fairly interesting — I’m looking for a new manga to read. I’ll see how your reviews of the later volumes go to decide on this one, though. :p Great review!
