  • This anime will steal you from the world!
    One of the best anime I have watched in a long time, this show captivated me and was very enjoyable. The story is really good, the character development was quick yet delightful. During the story you get to see the impacts of social structure and how one princess will change the fate of her country. Only one thing I want.....MORE!!!!

  • Absolutely breathtaking!!!!
    This anime was NOT what i was expecting- it was 1000 times better! The first opening, the endings, and all the background music was beautiful and fit the show perfectly. Yona's character development was amazing. The story is incredible. All the characters had their own stories and unique personalities, I even loved all the side characters that only appeared for an episode or two. I love how ...

  • Beautifully addictive
    I can't stop watching this, I'm only on episode 8 and it's amazing. Beautiful animation, love and angst and friendship, action and betrayal, deep characters and growth, laughs and tears...it's got it all. I have a feeling I'll be upset if I rush to the end since everyone seems to be begging for another season and one hasn't been made.

  • My Husband And I Both Loved It - Amazing
    Fun for boys and girl and some of the best character development I've ever seen in an anime, especially for a female lead. This has gone straight to top 2 anime for me, I just adore it!
    Highly recommend reading the manga after watching this series.

  • I want more please! Bring on the next season!
    Loved this - beautiful animation, intriguing characters. It can't end here! The only thing that bothered me is that she slept with her earrings on. LOL.

    I feel in love with the characters and I want to know how it all ends. Does she take back her castle? Is Soo-wan a heartless murderer that has been hiding his true self the whole time, or is he the strong king that the kingdom needed who ...

  • This anime is AMAZING - deserves more than 2 seasons
    I fell in love with the manga of this and the anime doesn't disappoint. I just wish they could've continued the anime as well because it truly has a gorgeous look with all the aspects/themes that make a story amazing: action, romance, humor, betrayal, loss, love, hope - pretty much a little of everything.

  • 5 Stars & 5 Thumbs Up
    We really liked Yona of the Dawn. Its a little bit slow at first as it focuses on the character. It goes into each character's back story so you can really get to know them.
    It has a lot plot twists and switches moods quickly. It is suspenseful and thrilling and she becomes a strong woman.

  • Incredible story with great animation
    I love the animation style of this show, and the writing/story for it is a perfect partner for it. There are actually quite a few characters in the anime, but they follow them all, and tie them together beautifully to make a nice, cohesive story come to live. Would have absolutely loved to have seen more seasons for this one.

  • Not Your Average Reverse Harem
    I really loved this show, which is a surprise given it was nothing like I had though it would be. I went into this looking for reverse harem schlock and ended up with one of the best dramas that I had ever seen. There was so much grey in the characters and I just wanted everyone to win so badly, even though that's impossible. It's a shame that the OVAs aren't on the site, because the story is not ...

    Subtitle Issues but still good
    Good Story line and strong characters. I really enjoyed it.
    The only problem I had with it was the pacing of subtitles in certain areas. I would often have to pause and rewind to view a two sentence subtitle that would appear for a second or two before watching the character continuing speaking with no subtitles at all.
