Akatsuki no Yona

I am willing to bet that this, too, was made primarily for girls. It just shows. I make sure that all my reviews all fair, so I have to admit right away that this isn’t all that bad. I liked what I saw during the first episode and I will continue watching this if it stays like this.

Akatsuki no YonaThe artwork is alright. Some of the characters could really use some work and the details could use a little polishing. Still, those are minor things that don’t really interfere with your viewing experience.

The story is what worries me. It had a pretty good and interesting start. I am worried that soon a lot of “pretty boys” will show up all over the place to help a little princess in her time of need. I honestly wouldn’t want that.

I am going to carefully recommend this to action and fantasy fans. The comedy was a bit weak so I doubt comedy fans would love this sort of thing. It all depends on what happens next…

Plot Summary: King Il of Kouka, a land said in legends to have been founded by four dragons, has only one remaining heir, a daughter named Yona. She lives a happy life in the palace with her cousin Soo-won, who she loves in spite of her father’s opposition to them marrying. Her life is turned upside down when Soo-won murders her father and steals the throne. Yona, with her childhood friend and bodyguard Hak, must retreat to gather allies and reclaim her place as ruler of the kingdom.
