Ruri Dragon is a modern shonen manga with a supernatural premise that's written and illustrated by Masaoki Shindou.

The manga follows Ruri Aoki, a regular high school girl who one day wakes up with horns on her head!

Thankfully for her, this isn't Chainsaw Man, where the implications would be much worse

A shocked Ruri goes to her mother for help, only to learn that she's a half-dragon.

Ruri is unimpressed and not quite sure what she wants to do with this information. Eventually, she decides to simply go to school as normal.

Once there, however, she finds people's reactions to her change, as everyone wants to touch her horns or take selfies with her.

Ruri realizes that being a half-dragon is pure chaos, but not for the reasons she thought.

The manga became a Shonen Jump hit, but unfortunately, it only has six chapters and a single volume so far.
