Description:
Once every 100 years, a Water Fairy implants an egg into a person who then becomes the Guardian of Fairies. This time, the responsibility falls on Chagum, the second prince of the New Yogo Kingdom.

Chagum's life isn't easy. The king finds Chagum an inconvenience and attempts to have him killed. As a result, the queen asks a female guard, Balsa, to protect Chagum. In addition to this, beings from another world, known as Nayugu, constantly attack him in order to eat the egg carried in Chagumu's body.

Really nice!

I watched the anime too, but here they didn't tell anything about Sagum hmm. I dunno how it was in the novel, but in anime, it's Sagum instead that left deep impression on me

This was a great read! A wonderful, moving story with beautiful art and a lovely ending! Thanks for the scanlation.

@Zael Thanks for the heads up. Looks like it started uploading here a month after I said that, so I probably wouldn't have gotten back around to checking for quite a while.

@Glomoro they are finally translating Yami no Moribito now. ?

I felt exactly like Infinite Verisimilitude, returning to re-read this after reaching the latest chapter in Yami.

It's a shame the sequel doesn't seem to have been scanlated at all. It's about Balsa a year after the events here, going to her homeland iirc. I think there were 12 novel volumes in all covering 9 stories, only the first one got animated and first two adapted to manga (but like I said, the second part doesn't seem to have been picked up by anyone). Scholastic did a localization of the first two novels, but poor sales seem to have killed that off, and the fan translation I could find didn't complete volume 3, let alone start any of the others. Guess I'll have to chalk this series up as yet another reason to properly learn Japanese myself, and someday maybe the list will even defeat my laziness.

It's an interesting manga. The art reminds me with the combination of western comics and Naoki Urasawa works. I'm still on the chapter 4, reading it so far make me want to finnish it in one sitting.

That is a bloody good sort series. I read it ages ago and enjoyed rereading it now.
