Labo Asai’s Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryū to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons light novels began publication in 2003 under Kadokawa’s Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint, albeit without the “Dances With Dragons” subtitle. The series switched to Shogakukan’s Gagaga Bunko in 2008, and gained its new subtitle along with a total rewrite. Artist Miyagi illustrated all volumes under Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko, as well as th first thirteen installments under Gagaga Bunko. Volume 14 saw a switch to current illustrator Zain. To date, 19 volumes have been released by Gagaga Bunko, with the most recent hitting stores in February.
A manga adaptation by Yaku Haibara launched in Kadokawa’s Beans Ace, which was published as a single volume in 2006.
