  • Well written, character driven and captivating
    Yona of the Dawn had me hooked from the instant i began it. The character depth is astonishing and it's refreshing to watch something so passionate. The story itself is well written, although the pacing should really have been slowed down towards the end. The characters are great, but of course there are the cliches:
    * how all the guys like her and follow her wherever
    * how her red ...

  • Beautiful Characters
    One of my favorites series on Crunchyroll to date. I like the pace the characters are developed and appreciate how closely it follows the manga. It's nice to see a Mary Sue develop into a strong heroine. Every character is developed beautifully through their individual stories and journies.

  • Short but Informative Review
    Yona of the Dawn or Akatsuki No Yona is a beautifully animated work of art that maintains historical culture accuracy, while keeping the plot intriguingly fictional and easy to enjoy. All of the characters learn and develop from their mistakes, as well as build stronger bonds with one another.

  • Amazing show, one of my favourites!
    I love how Yona is such a strong female character, even though she doesen't have any particular skills. She has an amazing change, and she does everything in her power to help those she loves.
    This show is inspiring, very funny (like seriously), and it has a great plot.

  • My wife's first anime...
    This was a great anime, and how I finally got my wife to start watching anime (over a decade in the making!) I actually started by showing her the season 2 OP to give her an idea of how Yona would develop. It has a good mix of plot and action and humor.

  • Great anime for binging!
    I really enjoyed watching this series. Yona starts out as a naive and spoiled princess but through her trials she becomes much stronger and learns more about herself and her people. She still keeps her kindness and some naivete about her though.

    I would love to see a second season of this but I will have to make do with reading the manga to get more of these wonderful characters!

    Watched this over 10 times now. I still love it
    I've watched Yona of the Dawn countless of times and it never gets old. The art is beautiful and the storyline is unique. Everyone that I recommend this to loved it from episode one. It has a great sense of humor and I would watch this over and over. So if you haven't watched it I recommend it!
