I didn't read the synopsis but I knew after the first 10 minutes or so that Soo-Won was about to pull an Aizen. It was just..too obvious.

Wow! I was not expecting this from this series.
I figured it might be an ok shoujo, but that ending was super bad ass!

The writers seem to have a good idea of how they want to develop Yona and the overall flow of the episode was nice. I really enjoyed the art style too. It was a great episode and defiantly exceeded any expectations i had for the series.

I'll be curious to see how this plays out due to the 2 cour. I hope it doesn't plateau and keeps a solid drive all the way through. Also it was pretty predictable, but still the effect was good.

I will for sure be coming back for the second episode. Hak was just a boss in that last scene and i want to see what happens!

^_^!!!

Ep 1

Chiwa Saito sounds even more adorable than usual *swoons*

And Hak coming to the rescue all badass like *double swoon* lol

Yeah it was obvious the dude would turn on them, that or die, it was one of the two in my mind as I was watching.

Maybe he knew something she didn't that would make him a bad king, whether he thought Soon would be weak or cruel. Yona seems to be working on an idealized version of her cousin based mostly on how she knew him as a kid.

I doubt inbreeding would be a concern in that setting, but the king could be that world's Mendel for all we know. XD

Episode 1

Interesting first episode. For a shoujo, it was much bloodier than I expected and we all knew that Soo-Won was going to go rouge. It was like writing on the wall. Anyways, I'm looking forward to see where this goes.

I'm happy to see a traditional fantasy story on the lineup, I'm a sucker for swords and dragons.

Hopefully they won't let the romance get in the way of a good adventure, I always prefer a balanced story that goes somewhere and it looks like this one has some potential.

i've read part of the manga, so i knew he was gonna turn out to be bad, but anyway, enjoyable first episode, i feel like i don't see much fantasy/historical shoujo adaptations; most shoujo manga adaptations are based in high school.

i LOVED LOVED LOVED the opening & ending. the one thing that gets me about anime are the OP/EDs; the vocals almost never cease to be an annoyance. Plus I just prefer instrumental music in general.

Really enjoyed the first episode. Love historical anything. Just need to stop calling the characters Tamahome and Miaka.

My bad. They're Miaka, Tamahome and Hotohori cosplaying as Nakago. XD

All comparisons to FY aside, I'mma need to watch more episodes to form an opinion about the show and the series. Might pick up the manga after the anime's cours if it gets good.
