    Really enjoyable as a manga
    I am really looking forward to this as a anime. I Just finished reading manga.

    This is a cute quest series about a sheltered princess named Yona. She is forced to go on a journey due to some uncomfortable situation.
    With her body guard/ best friend, Hak's help, they escaped from the

    First Episode. Lot's of Promise.
    From the opening to the conclusion, I am proud to say that Akatsuki no Yona, thoroughly captures the audience. With its soundtrack, action, animation, and dramatic plot, this is sure to be a great autumn anime.
    The story starts off as the future Yona speaks about her past. I assume that is how the story will be carried out, until it catches up to her currently. It is a great way to start off ...

    Dragons guard agaist the hawks ambitions.
    end of season revise.

    Opening with lovely music, and the impression of impending destiny, this show looks like it carries significant promise for the season. The OP has a lot of symbolism, and could give away more than is intended. The efforts they are putting into the characters is promising of a story that will carry depth and challenge to the end. There are many divergences into the ...

    * Good start
    * Very classic and original idea
    * Not your typical cliche story

    Cons:
    * Needs more ...

    First Episode Review
    My thoughts:
    What first got me into the anime was the art. Animes these days seem to have one standardized modern style, but I felt this one was different. Though I judged this book by it's cover, I was pleased to find more factors that would pull me in than just art. How the first episode transitioned was at a good pace. It was merely an introduction of characters for the first ...

    Based on the First Episode...
    The pacing felt rushed and I found the twist predictable. The picture for this anime got me excited, seeing the Princess holding a sword, but the first episode revealed that she is a self-absorbed, unintelligent, and helpless little princess. I give it 3 because the art is still good and I doubt everyone would be disappointed as I was.

    First Episode Review
    Princess Yona seemed a bit annoying at first, but I guess it's understandable because royalty does tend to get spoiled especially from such a doting father who is also emperor. However, in the start of the episode she appears to be strong, humbled, and a complete different person. Therefore, I believe that Yona being chased out of her castle will transform her into a better person not just focused ...

    more soap opera than anime
    Couldn't make it to the end of the 1st episode. It definitely feels more like a soap opera than an anime and you could already guess who is the bad guy and who gets the girl after 10 minutes.
    Not sure what else needs to be said. Maybe some product placement would be befitting?
