The water god's kind of a fool.  I mean, he doesn't do (pretty much anything) because it's useless . . . but what the heck would be "useful" to him in the first place?  He doesn't need food, sleep, or shelter, doesn't need to work to get pretty much anything he wants, isn't interested in greater power . . . if he isn't going to do anything "useless" then I guess he'll just have to stand like a statue for all eternity.  Sounds kinda boring.

Well bad news.

My eyes are currently kinda fucked.

Nothing serious right now and I dont expect it to get serious.

Problem is, its still kinda hard to see.

Ill still try to keep the updates coming, but I cant make any promises about if I can make

those chapters before I go on vacation (Guess I need it huh)

 

Anyways thats all

Thank you for your hard work ! I'd be sad if you injured your health working on the translations, please put yourself first !

Welp, Asahi's gonna build herself a man-harem. Good for her!

This artstyle is soo cute *_* I know it has been the entire time, but somehow this chapter struck me as especially adorable.

 

Adding my personal two cents, I honestly don't care who Asahi end ups with, as long as it's believable and the other party doesn't get emotionally crippled in the process. I would enjoy both, Asahi together with Subaru (because that boy deserves her), or seeing her turning her bishie-pet-sheldon into something capable of feeling human emotions and understanding our common sense.

I trust Toma-sensei will not dissappoint us :)

Sorry to hear about your health. I hope you get better soon. Please take care of yourself. You just finished exams so dont push yourself to hard.. Thank you for your effort in bringing translations.

Asahi's quite clever. I hope this is a trip to see if she can return to her own world.

I don't exactly have an argument with that, but I do have a technicality to note:  We don't know she's in the past.  In fact, I kind of doubt it although that's mostly a gut thing.  Seems more like just some kind of fantasy world.  I mean, it could be some generic primitive early-agricultural tribe in the actual past, we don't have enough information to know, but it could also be "elsewhere", Narnia style.  It certainly isn't any, I dunno, specific place/time in the past that I've ever heard of.

I also got the feeling that this was more "otherworld" than specifically the past. Also in reply to  Ruruskadoo's comment,

Spoiler

Subaru: *prepares to murder the f*** out of the bastids what took Asahi*

 

Asahi: HEY SUBARU GUESS WHAT, I GOT MY VOICE BACK. :D Also, totally alive and unharmed, and wow, the Water God is a dick even when he helps me out.

 

Subaru: ... omg, ur voice is cute. *calls off the war*

 

Everyone else: JUST MAKE BABIES ALREADY.

 

I like that Subaru is the only person the Water God can't enthrall - I wonder if it's because Subaru has a greater willpower than most (possibly because of his run-in with him as a kid), or if it's because the Water God respects(?) that Subaru is a fighter who isn't afraid of gods or man, and that he's more useful that way.

 

Probably both, since he said, "Hey, yeah, just go ahead an murder those losers who stole Asahi from you and arrowed you in the back. Pleb." /directquote

 

As for the people asking why Asahi isn't demanding to know how she got where she is, if you recall, she was a kid when she came, so her reasoning faculties weren't all that developed. Honestly, the narration sounds much like that of a woman who's made it back to the modern world and has had time to (re)absorb the methods and mindset of the 21st century, which would have been far beyond the ken of even the most learned scholars of the Yayoi/Kofun period (not that I know for sure, I'm assuming this manga is set in Late Jomon/Yayoi, based on the agriculture village structure. But as a couple other commenters have pointed out, this could be a separate timeline/universe all together...)

You know what really bothers me?

 Yeah. And doubt it, but if anything... maybe "in the end".

In any case, I definitely don't want her to end up with the water god. Human-immortal marriages don't tend to work so well unless the immortal manages to make the human immortal too, and more importantly, the water god is a dick. What I'd really like is for her to be returned to the future where she belongs rather than being trapped in the past for the rest of her life. I'd be cool with Subaru tagging along and coming with her or with them parting ways.

 

 

Well, it's in the title. Bride of the Water God. Unless we get a sequel, "Bride of the Black Haired Boy", we know what to expect.

Spoiler

Well this chapter in aprticular was very difficult translation wise, hope it doesnt bother too much

So i got time now, the chapters should come out every 3 days or so

Yeah i dont have the time right now.

End of July ill be on vacation, before that Ill have time.

So I plan to finish up to chapter 16, wich is as far as Blackbird no Fansub is, till then

Thanks for your hard work. Good luck with stuff IRL!

What slog.  You know the black haired boy has no chance.  What a waste of time, his family turning against him and him going through all this just for her to probably run off with the bishie douche.

Well this douche has a very good job, so it's hard to blame her...

A job for life, his own boss, salary is infinite... not bad.

Reminds me of the last part of the 40k intro:
 
Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war.

The anti-human messaging? In this case, history is portrayed as full of war and suffering. I'm not sure if I'd call that "anti-human messaging", it's a pretty simple observation. It doesn't feel like the author is making a point that humanity is inherently evil.

Yes, there are characters who espouse hatred and contempt for humans - and they're even worse! If anything, I'd say this story is unusual for it's awful portrayal of the gods. They're capricious, uncaring, and perhaps even downright cruel. Up till now, at least, I'd always assumed that the water god's image of humans as worthless and barbaric reflect's more on his heartlessness than it does on the author's intended message.

Reminds me of the last part of the 40k intro:

 

To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.

 

This story seems more about commenting on the tragedy of reality then of humans. People fight, the gods laugh, and nothing changes forever.

Am I the only person who gets tired of the anti-human messaging in any manga dealing with war/conflict? Meh. Anyway, I like the reasoning behind why the water god went and gave Asahi her voice back - I'm just surprised he didn't do it earlier (seriously, chicks do some inexplicable stuff ALL THE TIME). I'm sure the manga will carry through with the idea that this is the equivalent of "putting a ring on it," to quote the sage.

Not much to add.

Well depending on my not studying ...

next chapter will come some time next week

They were probably referencing the end of chapter nine.

I was- and as I predicted, it didn't work out for them.

I did not see that coming ...

Well anyways, there you go
