Name: Akatsuki no Yona; Yona of the Dawn
Author: Kusanagi Mizuho
Studio: Studio Pierrot
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Shoujo
Status: Season 1 completed, Season 2 coming 2016

Synopsis: Princess Yona lives a life of luxury and ease, completely sheltered from the problems of the seemingly peaceful Kingdom of Kouka; however, the sudden murder of the king and betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won places Yona's life in mortal peril. Forced to escape only with Son Hak, who is both her childhood friend and bodyguard, the naïve princess soon discovers that Kouka is not the idyllic place she envisioned it to be. Poverty, strife, and corruption run rampant, making reclaiming the throne nothing more than a wishful fantasy given the kingdom's current state.

Based on the popular manga of the same name by Mizuho Kusanagi, Akatsuki no Yona follows Princess Yona on a coming-of-age adventure as she faces the harsh realities of her kingdom. With only a mysterious legend to guide her, Yona must discover a way to restore Kouka to its former glory while being pursued relentlessly by the forces of the new King of Kouka.

One of the nicest anime's I have seen, but I don't get why people ship Yona with Suu-won. I hope she ends up with Hak.

Since the anime started, I've been arguing with myself whether to read the manga or watch the anime. I guess I'll just watch the anime after I finish Kaiji.

Watch the anime first (it's Dubbed and has Sub) then read the manga. That's my suggestion

Ayy, a little late homie.

To be fair, had quite a few critiques with this one, wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It's not bad either though.

Yeah, pretty late haha

It's pretty good imo. While there a few minor things that were kinda bad, for the most part this was a really good anime.
