As for me, I think Yua's hasty decision of accepting Ryo's marriage proposal is a big no-no. And I bet that there's no love involved when Yua decided to get married. Meanwhile, Subaru mentioned that Ryo, his father, only pity Yua because she's already an orphan and that no one's there to take care of her. A bit harsh but I think I agree with Subaru's opinion. In addition, it's quite predictable that there would be a love triangle in Ryo, Yua, and Subaru's setup. But what's not foreseeable is whether Yua and Ryo will divorce in the end because Yua chose Subaru, or Yua will stay with Ryo. And I reckon that is what readers are anticipating in the succeeding volumes to be released in this manga series. In general, if you like reading the romantic-comedy genre, The Lion and the Bride is a great manga and good for light-reading.

    Sooooo....confession time. I LOVE Shojo. I love the drama (if it isn't too intense), the love triangles/interests, the beautiful, sweet, innocent yet wise heroine that captures the hearts of all around her, without really realizing it herself, and the strong, silent men who flock to her, but can't tell her how they truly feel. Sigh. So this? Yeah, right up my alley. I was kind of nervous that it might dip into pervy/pedo territory, cuz teacher and student, but the teacher is very respectful and c Sooooo....confession time.

Sigh. So this? Yeah, right up my alley. I was kind of nervous that it might dip into pervy/pedo territory, cuz teacher and student, but the teacher is very respectful and cognizant of the fact that she hasn't graduated yet (less than a year), so no hanky-panky. The artwork is gorgeous, the story line appropriately drama-filled and I love all of the characters. I really want to see what happens, because that ending was a TAD on the cliffhanger side. 4.5 stars, rounded down because cliffhanger. MORE MONSTER WANTS MORE!!! I would say this is probably for higher middle readers on up. Nothing more than a few kisses here and there, but it is a student married to her teacher. So kind of adult in concept. My thanks to NetGalley and Akita Publishing Co., Ltd. for an eARC copy of this book to read and review.

    An orphaned high school girl marries her teacher, who also has a son her age. It's a recipe for more forbidden romance, yet all this reader can say is, "just no".

    Thank you Net Galley and Mika Sakurano for the free copy of this book in exchange with an honest review! This is my first time ever reading a manga and I have to admit, I enjoyed it so much! It was a bit of an adjustment at first, reading from right to left and not the opposite, but I got the hang of it and it didn't bother me at all after the first couple of pages! The story was very fun and entertaining and it ended in a cliff hanger and I was like: "Where's the next volume???"

The story was very fun and entertaining and it ended in a cliff hanger and I was like: "Where's the next volume???" It really left me wondering what will happen next and to be honest, what happened at the end was something I was wishing to happen from the start and that's mainly why I'm so anxious and excited to get my hands on the second volume as well! As far as characters go, I didn't fully relate to Yua-chan but that didn't mean that I didn't enjoy the manga! Marrying your teacher is something that you don't see often but it also adds originality to the story and I liked it a lot, because it spiced up the plot and led to many funny and embarrassing moments for Yua and Sensei. I believe that I didn't relate as much as I hoped to Yua-chan is due to the fact that the character development wasn't complete, since there are more volumes to read. I'm sure that if I read more about her and how she delt with being married to her teacher, I would be able to fully understand her and her motives. All in all, "The Lion and the Bride" is an exciting manga with original and fun characters, that will definitely keep your interest and have you want more after you finish!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. While I found the art style cute,,THE AGE GAPS ❌ PEDOPHILE TEACHER❌🤢🤮 The girl must be around 15-17 age [CLEARLY A MINOR]. At first I thought the teacher would be around 20-21( which still is totally inappropriate to hit/ date a minor. But then HE HAS SON. A SON. Who is in the same class as her. Must be around her age. So he (teacher) is a middle aged man marrying a teenage girl. JUST NO. THIS IS A RED FLAG.

The entire story is 13 chapters long total. The art style is the reason I kept reading since it was so good. Ok now to the plot.

The entire story is 13 chapters long total. The art style is the reason I kept reading since it was so good. Ok now to the plot. The story revolves around Yua a 17 year old girl whose parents died when she was in middle school in an accident that was never specified. She lived with her Grandma who was currently in a hospital. Unfortunately for her she was in love with somone who she couldn’t marry until she graduated high school. Her teacher. (So I normally hate this trope but trust me the story gets good). Her teacher who we eventually find out is 35 (18 year age difference gag) tells her he can’t wait to marry her except he had one small thing to tell her. So back to Yua, she went to school (not only is Ryo (the teacher) a teacher at her school he’s her home room teacher which is just kinda awkward tbh). So Yua’s close friend had a huge crush on a perfect model who was extremely popular in her school yet also quiet cold and mysterious and a classmate who sits right next to Yua (If he had a terminal illness, he would’ve become more of a basic trope). His name is Subaru and Yua’s friend confesses and gets turned down extremely rudely. Yua watching from the back for emotional support gets pissed and tells him off only to have Subaru tell her that’s she probably spoiled (lol yea her dead parents and sick grandma can totally spoil her). She gets even more pissed then tells her Sensei all about it and then before he could tell her something important she gets a text about her Grandmother. She runs to the hospital and lo and behold her grandma’s dead (oh such a plot twist). Then Ryo asks her to marry him right after and she moves in with him. To her surprise, Ryo has an ex-wife who he impregnated when they were both 18 and his son was *drumroll please* SUBARU. So that’s basically the drama behind the entire story of Yua wondering if Sensei wants an older girl (or misses his ex wife), if Subaru can go out with Yua for real, or if Sensei really loves Yua. ******ACTUAL HIGHKEY SPOILERS*********^ So I mean it’s also kinda obvious but the reason I liked this Manga was because Subaru and Yua were the same age and realized that they loved each other. It was a weird but entertaining story. It might be a basic romance but hey basic romances are loved for a reason.

    I am such a Shoujo manga addict and this just looked so cute. It's one of those concepts where there is a student/teacher relationship going on and the teacher secretly marries the student to basically save/help her. Think Faster Than A Kiss scenario (but I loved that manga). This girl, Yua, is pretty stuck up and selfish though. At some points we do see a softer side, it almost seems like she's putting on a front in front of others though so I'm okay with that as long as it's not her true perso I am such a Shoujo manga addict and this just looked so cute.

I dunno. Secretive. Who doesn't tell the girl they're dating the big stuff like.. *ahem* spoiler coming so avert your eyes if you don't want to see. . . You're divorced and have a son the same age as your new wife!!!! Subaru is adorable though, I have to say. Ditch the sensei, because I'm shipping the son and Yua. And his dad looked so angry when he helped Yua out when she hurt her foot. Get real. He's your son and she's a young girl, if you're so insecure someone will steal her don't offer to marry her in the first place. The whole student/teacher and age-gap thing especially when she's still a teen in high school and he's a divorcee with a kid her age, well it isn't ideal for me plot-wise. But if she ditches the sensei and falls for Subaru I'm game. Received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I read Issue 1 on Google Books, as it was free and I was drawn in by the pretty (and pink) cover and dramatic title. I haven't read much manga and am probably not the right audience for this. This features: 1) cute art 2) teacher-student relationship : I am not in favor of these, unless there's a strong developing arc such as Tamora Pierce's Numair -Daine in Emperor Mage. Here, we are told about the secret relationship, but the pair lack chemistry. 3) unlikable characters : Sensei's maturity matched I read Issue 1 on Google Books, as it was free and I was drawn in by the pretty (and pink) cover and dramatic title.

This increases the ick factor of both the relationships. Sensei kept such an important secret from Yua and having a son the same age as his high schooler wife makes their age gap very uncomfortable. I will not be reading on.

    I received my copy of this e-book from the publisher through NetGalley. At first blush, I wasn't too into this series. It started out with characters for whom I didn't feel a shred of sympathy, and it seemed conventional and formulaic - typical high school drama-romance story. Ok. And then the first chapter ended with a surprise. And then the next chapter ended with the surprise, and so on. The characters grew on me though Sensei still seems a little blah.

And I might even recommend it to you if I weren't too embarrassed to do so. If you're into high school romance manga, this was made just for you. So check it out!

I love the art style and the plot, and the characters are dimensional and not cardboard copies of one another.

    Shoujo manga that I fell for. The premise I really intriguing, for sure controversial, but... I'm just a sucker for it! Student and teacher relationships are common, but to make one worth anything for sure you need more than great drawing.

    I enjoyed reading this manga. The romance was interesting though again nothing really happened and the ending was predictable. The only thing that redeemed it was the main character being a strong independent woman and the art style. Because of this I have to give this manga volume a 3 out of 5 stars. Though interesting I will probably not continue the series.
