The 5000-year-old Herbivorous Dragon


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Saying 5000 year-old-dragon has an impressive ring to it, yet that dragon was an extremely harmless, herbivorous being. However, because of his uselessly giant figure and scary appearance, he was mistaken for the Demon King’s executive and provided by the nearby village with a sacrificial maiden.

Fundamentally cowardly and timid dragon tried to send her away, but the extremely enthusiastic sacrifice didn’t want to give up. Inevitably, he lied: “Okay, I just ate a small portion of your soul, so you can go back already”, but the maiden with outrageous assumptions has misunderstood that she became the dragon’s kin.

Then, out of all things, she began to manifest strange power on the basis of her wrong assumptions – in turn, the helpless dragon, by some mistake started a rebellion against the Demon King.

Rebellion or whatnot, he wasn’t even his subordinate in the first place.

Mr. Logic is back here. And I can assure that this novel is quite worth to read if you need something to relax and laugh at its comedy.

  • World: dominated by OP being who has high magic capabilities. So basicly if you are born strong, you are strong, and vice versa. But that is the point makes the story hilarious.
  • MC: a naive dragon and a mad-but-OP girl. The girl doesn't believe in herself that the power comes from her and always thinks it comes from the dragon while the dragon is just a weakling so he scares to death by the girl ideals and deductions.
  • Rational: the story is pretty hilarious and logical, even in those latter chapters. There are obviously lots of plotholes but that what makes the story funny so I am not gonna reduce my rating because of that.
In the conclusion, this novel is worth to read to relax your mind. It is more funny when you read the manga adaption after reading this novel.

Crazy, chuuni sacrifice girl meets gentle, ancient dragon. One white lie leads to the next. Much silly, cute mass destruction ensues.

Eh... Okay, this is comedy and a web-novel... my expectations is rather low and I still end up unsatisfied.

Comedy is really difficult to pull off and I rarely see it done well here. This is one of those comedy novels here that is not funny at all. Well, the situation has great potential for humor, but the author relies on low denominator jokes, often slapstick and schadenfreude, without a creative take or actual understanding of comedy. The jokes are delivered in the most unfunny way possible. The author is often... more>> desperate and keeps pointing out the jokes in the hopes that you will notice it and laugh at it. The thing is, if you have to point out your jokes, then you failed.

So, the humor fails, what about the story... It was boring as well. It don't even feel like there is a story at all. The characters just talk and talk and talk. If something happens, then they'll talk some more, then op girl solve it with a wave of the hand, and they'll talk some more. Why can't everyone just shut up!

And the characters, they are paper thin. The dragon is a wimp and the girl is an over powered idiot that is it. The worst thing is that the story is mainly about the interaction of the two. It is all about the dragon being a wimp and the girl being an idiot.

Well, it is a JP web novel about a dragon. JP + web novel + dragon often equals to awful and this one is no different. At least it is harmless and inoffensive, therefore two stars. <<less

Everyone has seen OP dragon, weak small dragon train to be strong, reincarnated to dragon, reincarnated from dragon to human, strong dragon train to be even stronger, etc... In other Novel, Dragon is a being who only needs time to get stronger. But in this story, our MC, the dragon, despite living for 5000 years, but he is still super weak.

This story is about the dragon misunderstood for being strong by a crazy little girl. Scared of dying or cause harm to the world, the MC must leave his nest... more>> to go on adventure with the aim to defeat the Demon King that he doesn't even know about after 5000 years of eating nothing but bamboo and grass and living a lazy life.

I like this kind of misunderstanding. Will the MC be killed in the end or he will get strong enough to make the misunderstanding become real or he will have other ways to get out of this mess? I'm looking forward for more chapters of this. <<less

A ridiculously fun story about a comically weak but scary looking dragon that has many weird rumours to his name and an obsessed OP nutjob of a little girl that believes herself to be his follower and terrifies the living spirit out of him and pretty much everybody else they come across, causing the rumours about our herbivorous friend to deepen. All in all the story is lovely, heartwarming and really really fun. Also, the translator does a splendid job and release are quite frequent too

The story is about an overpowered girl, capable of incredible feats that could cause untold destruction, and her infinitely more powerful master, the evil dragon god. Yeah, no. Only half of that is true and that half is what makes this story great. I've always been a fan of misunderstandings as a cliche and this novel really pushes the border of the trope.

One half of the main cast, the overpowered girl, is a delusional creature who lives to sow chaos. The other half is a rational and completely empathetic being... more>> who is capable of understanding the norms of those around him. The juxtaposition of the two brings a lot of comedy to the table and, so far, the story's using this is as the main point for the novel's focus.

The pacing of the story so far is pretty good and it has introduced a minor but intriguing amount of world building. It doesn't go out of its way to narrate a scene for the readers and keeps its exposition to a minimal. The translation team doing this is detailed about their work so grammar mistakes are almost untraceable. Not much has happened so far storywise but enough has been done to keep me interested.

I would definitely recommend this as a read and also suggest reading the manga adaption of this novel as well. It was the manga that got me here and I loved how the manga looked. <<less
