Best fantasy manga since a while for me   
Rating: N/A

When I first started reading this manga, I was afraid it would turn in some classic edo era/shojo/handsame guy story (not that I found them all bad, but at this time I didn't wanted to read something like that again, had to much of this...). But the story about Yonas situation and about her Kingdom with this legend of the dragons. It's so much more than just about Romance!
When I saw there were an anime, I asked my boyfriend to watch it with me because he loves fantasy comedy and action. First he was like "OMG, this is an Harem or what? How corny is this?" But when we went other the start he really liked it and wanted to watch it on and on.
I think this is really a non-typical, brilliant manga and I am really looking forward how it will develope.

Fun adventures with Harem gang(?).

This manga is amazing. I totally like it. The gang(At least this is how I call it...) fell for Yona(I'm not saying Zeno did). This is what I have been searching for with my friend which includes action.

Yeah, my friend is a guy, he loves action. But we were challenging each other to find a popular historical shoujo manga with action,plus harem. In the end, we both slammed the floor hard as we let out huge supplies of air from our mouth---Yona's denseness is 49.99/50.

I also enjoy the ill points of having unrequited love for too many years, he thought all the cute Yona behaving strange in front of him were hallucination---well, this happens almost all times.

Its hard to find a Manga that has an equal balance of action, romance, and humor plus an interesting plot. I would just like to see more conflict with in the group itself to shake up this unbeatable team they got going on. I love this series either way though! 😛

Honestly, I've kind of outgrown the whole Shoujo manga thing. But it's really AMAZING to see a female character who starts off naive and sheltered come into her own in a more natural way. Like usually there's a lot of melodrama or she turns into a damsel in distress, but Yona is absolutely amazing! She's humble, sensible, vulnerable. Yet, she's also strong and resilient. All the characters show growth and the narrative is complex without being contrived. It's quite a well done manga in my opinion. Would HIGHLY recommend

The Anime

I love it so far. It's really good, but I really wish that the anime would hurry up. ( i _ i )
I'm not a very patient person, and the fans are waiting.

Friends: *are angry fangirls*

It's just...taking forever. It's starting to make me sad/mad/whatever else. I am really just...(I honestly don't know), but please hurry up. I am really craving it right now, and I might explode (don't worry, it's a habit of mine, though you might feel my feelings from your location) and I really want to watch the rest and see my little cinnamon rolls bake the mean Soo-Won cinnamon roll.
I know I'm obviously not the only one waiting for the anime, so please hurry.

Yeah.... I totally love it. Me. A twenty year old who has sworn off shoujo or so i thought. This thing made me feel like I am 12 years old again, afraid to talk to boys and crushes are the moat important thing in the world and then slowly realizing that duh- it is so totally not.

Btw- if it counts i watched the anime and then followed the manga. So addicting. It's like the illegitimate daughter of Saiunkoku Monogatari and Fuushigi Yuugi and i am a real sucker for reverse harems that have that guardian theme, world travel, quest type, backpacking, character developing tropes. I mean come on- Akatsuki no Yona brought me straight back to my roots. It made me remember why i even liked anime and manga at the first place.

Oh and it has that ability too! They are able to make you feel for characters even though they've only been around for a couple of pages. It also gets real too - not everyone here gets a happy hippy yehey ending. If they die, they really die. When they bleed they really bleed. There's no quick fix. And btw, Yona is tots better than Miaka. Hahahaha. Love Miaka but lord, that girl is dumb. Yona gets beaten up for reals and she actually trains, she's not one of those Mary Sue types that just randomly picks a weapon and then realizes that she is a natural.

Damn it. Just pick it up. I was really happy that i did.

Oh yeah! And the characters! Omygawd. I love them all. I cant pick a clear bae. But like one of the peope who have commented here said i too want to see Hak at least walk away just one. That would be interesting! I like Soo Won too! Dude has conviction- he's not tye stereotypical bad guy and he is pretty clever- true a little backstabbing but i want him in on my team. Oh and yoon and the dragons dont get me started, sister! Oh god. I like hiw different each of their clans are! Background stoties though ftw. I just dont want it to get to the point where we are all going to go sappy knowing yona is bot going to end up with one of them because i predict that by the end of this-- they might be dead. I hope that's just me.

16 volumes in and I can't figure out why I'd continue reading this series. Nothing has changed in regards to the characters which is sad considering how bland they are. It's to the point where I despise the thought of seeing them repeat the same actions that I've already witnessed countless times before.

Good but not convinced

This one waves as sin and cosin, At times it a great story and at times it's hard to read, same for the chars, some are great some ain't and at time you find events and actions to go against what would be considered consistent. Or Yona, at times a good char I root for and at times I wanna see her suffer. Or Hak which I often hope to see him walk away, or Soo-won, etc.
Also, as usual with this kinds of mangas the story progression seams to get slower as it continues, I get the impression that not nearly as much happened in the 8 volumes following the anime compared to the 8 animated ones.
All in all it's a good manga and I enjoy reading it, thou I'm still unconvinced till it decides to break the forced status-quo achived very early in the saga and make some actual progress to the story instead of going around in circles.

Shoujo manga are usually a bit hard to digest for me.... but this was great.

I love every single arc of this story--and the heroine is my favorite character! Her independence and charming ways are done pretty well, while there are doses of cliches here and there.

Now, although I have some problems with the mini-harem she has.... I'm loving the moral ambiguity of many of the characters. The new king is another one of my favorites--he is so complex despite the lack of panel coverage.

A majority of the characters are multi-dimensional, thank goodness.
