Yua is a high school girl in a secret relationship with her teacher. But one day her grandmother, her last surviving family member, passes away and leaves her all alone in the world. And then, her beloved Sensei, supporting her again as he always has, asks her to marry him. She’s convinced that she’s about to begin a happy newlywed life, but it turns out Sensei has a huge secret…?! At school and at home, she’s gotten tangled up in some complicated afterschool marriage blues!!!
This isn’t the first manga that I’ve read that has the teacher and student love trope. I’m starting to think it’s kind of my thing. Not that I’ve ever fantasied over dating my teachers.🧐🧐🧐 Maybe if they looked like Ezra from PLL…I’d be saying something else…😅
Anyway, in this manga, Yua ends up marrying her teacher due to difficult life circumstances. When she moves in, she finds out that he has a son…who is her age….in her class…yea. Not sure if I’ve ever read a manga like that..but there’s a first for everything I guess! LOL!
The Lion and the Bride was pretty short. Being only 4 chapters and all. However, a lot happens during that time. I’m gonna be honest, it was very weird for me to see her interacting with the son who is her age. Aside from that, the story is pretty cute, fast paced and interesting.
I find myself looking forward to seeing what happens next! Would you read this?
