I didn't really like this novel. I dropped it at chapter 13 cuz its not really my type. I expected it to be about an overpowered dragon, going through actual adventures, making friends, falling in love and going through other typical shit. But this doesn't really follow through with that.

I usually dont drop a novel even if I don't like it but this was just too boring for me.

Lightheart, warm and fluff, with a bit of plot on the sideline (that still managed to intrigue me, but I mainly stayed for Dragon-san)

Take this as a read after all the heavy plot stories, or mind breaking or heavily depicted stories.

Highly recommend as a read under rain at night (with some tea and biscuits)

Not too bad, though its hard to tell if the dragons a girl or a boy, keeps changing the way she address herself plus its harder when she changes gender all the time.

Also this should be called: Dragon-san Needs a Hearing Aid,

the amount of main points she a magical creature of immense power fails to hear is unreal in this novel haha

I love it <3

I just had to have a sneak peek from raws and so far I like this novel very much.

Characters are well made and feel alive, even rarely mentioned ones. Flow of time is obviously fast since it is from dragons pow and I like it how author brings up what happen after mortal humans death? What to do how to bear with loneliness? Should the dragon-san just bear with it and watch over some descedants or just suppress it's feelings and become dull unfeeling dragon like rest... more>> of them.

Story is written well and is interesting, translation is exellent as well.

This novel is definetly one to give a chance to shine so go ahead and give it a try :) <<less

Not a fan of this type of shallow story I guess. There's also no real "adventure" imo. MC is too "attached" to a single human nation/city instead of being one of the worldly dragon she is, and I blame Nectar and co for that.

Especially don't like the character Nectar, didn't like how clingy he was. I don't ship him with MC at all even though they end up together, pretty damn obvious when there's very few other characters introduced. MC pretty much just falls in love with the first human... more>> guy and one of the very few male character she meets. Like only one or none choice, if that makes any sense.

Time skips everywhere, ok fine, but imo story still feels kinda rushed maybe because MC falls in love, gets married, and have a kid all in under 30 chapters yet spanning decades. The end.

.... except it's obviously not the end. Whereas other stories would normally end, it continues on with more of what seems like side stories with time jumps and stuff but maybe actually part of main story so idk. <<less

Loving this story, it's got lots of heart and plenty of fantasy goodness. There is also a unique perspective on the purpose and lifecycle of dragons, which is also connected to the nature of magic, monsters, and spirits in the world.

I have trouble with the prose and grammar in this one, which isn't helped by the fact that the Dragon-san is often discussing high-level magical concept babel across multiple fields of study with her friends (and then those rules seem to change for plot convenience), she's an immortal unreliable narrator... more>> in regards to time ("A few months went by and I visited the capital... My friend [who was a teen last chapter] stroked his long white beard") with a fluid/asexual gender (except when she's with her beau) to boot.

Don't get me wrong, I understand what's happening in the plot, and some of the scenes flow smoothly when the fluffy parts come out in the story. I don't know any Japanese so I can't say what is the fault of the original text and what is the fault of failed translation editing, but I feel like this is a story that needed a really great translator and it got a pretty good student translator instead.

A solid and romantic fantasy read that I highly recommend. <<less

Although it isn't the best book i've ever read, it still resonated with my soul, due to the feelings of the protagonist, which made this book to this point simply enjoyable.

As of writing this, I have read upto the current chapter of the translation (35) and am pleased to say that this has been an enjoyable read. I gave it a 4/5 stars due to certain times there are oddities in the writing, like transitions to topics without warning that can be a bit confusing, though if you continue to read they usually get sorted out so its not that bad. Overall the story is a fairly light-hearted slice of life following a reincarnated girl who was reborn as a... more>> dragon causing her to be a good bit more emotional then other dragons who are described as almost robotic like. I will say that within the first 20 chapters the story gave me a beginning, some world building, romance (ish), a conflict and resolution, some slice of life, emotional struggles and character development, and a fairly satisfying ending. I mean after chapter 20 is some extra chapters and a long side story explaining something that happened at some point during the slice of life section (around 9 chapters or so, basically a separate plot that maybe the author thought about and decided not to put it in but made it afterwards anyway??), and then you get into the start of the second volume/arc which continues where it left off.

Overall a Good story thats an easy read and I would definitely recommend reading at least the first 20 chapters if nothing else. Side note: some might mention some oddities in how the protag refers to themselves and that can be somewhat understood by the fact they can change shape and physical features several times in the story and can be confusing as to what they are like at any one point in time. Sometimes they are a male, sometimes female, sometimes in dragon form, it can be confusing because the protag considers them selves Female (as they were in their past life) and genderless (basically anytime the protag isnt in her female human form). <<less

i quite like this kind of novel (romance and slice of life)

it is great that they had a cute kid, but I think it too soon

there are lots of timeskips at the beginning ~~

... more>> the MC and people surrounding her (him) are too OP, but I think this help the novel to avoid getting bored because of many long dull matches

i had wonder why the author let Kyle die so soon and you now, he reincarnated but he didn't much to Nectar . I think it is unnecessary to revive him

after all, I love this kind of loving story

Just started reading this novel and so far it's been a blast.

The characters are likable, it's funny in a not overbearing way and the romance even, if it maybe a bit rushed (chapter wise, not timeline wise) it's a very sweet story that made me smile and in the end of the day that's what's important :)
