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.

Akatsuki no Yona is a Reverse Harem anime that features love, betrayal, and revenge. Three common points that everyone can surely relate to. Right of the bat, the plot is REALLY emphasized so the viewers can pretty much have a number of predictions on what's going to happen next.  It gives you the proper grasp of the anime and surprisingly enough it isn't boring to watch. I could compare it to a vacation wherein you would much enjoy the travel rather than the destination because the destination is already given but the undefined moments of how would you get there is still not defined which is left for you, the traveler or in this case the viewer, to discover. In my opinion, it's one of the few reverse harems out there that actually has a strong foundation in terms of their plot and not just flash those handsome male characters here and there which is actually *ahem* 

Also, I'm giving this eight stars cause I'm not pretty much not pleased with the ending and I think it could be better. But as I have said it's the journey not the destination.

I really like this anime. It has many good qualities, like romance, action, perseverance, and supernatural. My only issue is that Yona at the beginning is very annoying. She's going through a lot at the time, but still. I would definitely read the manga after you've watched the short anime series.
