Confession, I am a sucker for Supernatural and Fantasy manga, not to mention my soft spot for Harems.
So, a Fantasy Action Harem manga featuring lovable characters, great art and a good sense of humour? Sign me up!
Tales of Wedding Rings also known as Kekkon Yubiwa Monogatari tells the story of Sato, who became friends with Hime ten years ago when she and her grandfather appeared out of thin air.
Years later, on the anniversary of their first meeting, he goes to confess his feelings for her, only to see her return to her world. He dives in after her and after using a ring to save her, finds out that by using the power of the ring he has become the king and her husband.
However, in order to defeat the true evil of this land, he must gather all the rings from each princess to gain more power. Marrying them all in the process.
Needless to say, hijinks ensue.
Harem protagonists are notorious for being rather bland, which is by design, but Sato from day one (or rather, page one) is a well rounded and likeable character
To talk about the others in the Harem will give away spoilers so I’ll only talk about Hime, which works for me as she is my favourite.
Hime is a bubbly girl who is kindhearted and compassionate. She truly loves and cares for Sato not only as a lover but as a dear friend who has been there for her and promises to stand by her.
The world in Tales of Wedding Rings is rather unique and interesting. Nothing groundbreaking but just interesting enough that you care about it.
I personally love the art style in this manga, it shines in the fight scenes and the softer moments alike.
Overall, I love Tales of Wedding Rings. It has a few laughs and lovable characters. I really want to talk about the other characters in this manga, but at the same time, I don’t want to spoil the story. If you like Harems, then Tales of Wedding Rings is the manga for you. Check it out if you get the chance!
