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.

      I'm turning my art supplies closet into a TARDIS, since that's where all the magic comes from. Going to be securing the windows and light fixture with these wonderful lights. Turning out to be a fun project!

      Season 2 has been over for a couple of weeks and I am heartbroken. This series really spoke to me on an emotional level and has quickly become one of my favorites. I'm hoping it gets comfirmed for a third season. 
      Feel free to leave your thoughts on the anime below. I've been itching to discuss it with someone.

      This poem came about when I mindlessly fell for someone that turned out to be very toxic. Also, I'm new and have no idea if I'm going about posting this in the right way? 😆
       
      Evil in White
       
      Catching the twilight hour within your hair
      Was enough to divest me bare
      Nothing from my lips can fashion you in gold
      Yet it seems a constant lambency to which I behold
      Wild as the wind, restless and vexed
      Walking on a garden green, where surely I am hexed
      A flower in your current, that tumbles from her vine
      For cordial rivers sweep within you, a blue serpentine
      There are no stars that fall tonight
      They are your gilded crown of might
      I am descrying through pellucid jade
      At an azure dancer whispering to the glade
      With all this power set within your eyes
      For me, the least surprise,
      was the eternity of the skies
      If there was wisdom beating in this heart
      I would not be tempted to impart
      The velvet in your lonely words
      Cut divinity into thirds
      Looming now a profound fear
      An intoxicating verdict my dear
      My weakness resting on each excuse
      Where even the sun might you seduce
      When the amber rays swell to a coral rush
      Swaying on a majestic horizon with a blush
      Just to kiss you softly with a breeze
      I am now but on my knees
      With your name clawing from my chest
      Permitting me to a feverish protest
      I am reduced to the fiend of you
      Falling on the blade of your fallacious virtue
      Have your roots slither deep and coil tight
      Should have known that evil comes dressed in white

      I’m trying to find a anime show my buddy was watching in 2013. I can’t find it anywhere as I don’t know the name. I’ve googled shows etc and no luck. The show was about upper class men and under class men. It was mainly a female cast from I recall with male characters as well. The scene I remember is upper class men picking on an underclass men in a fight scene. It looked as if they were in a school basement arena of some sort. The upperclassmen were fighting one underclassmen and calling her by that name. In the scene her clothes were torn off from an attack a bit and when she was huddled down she unlocked some secret potential she had and became a great fighter I think. They were all shocked and it looked like a good anime with the fight scene and what not. Take in mind I saw this in 2013 on his laptop and he had it downloaded to his hard drive so I can’t tell you how old it really is but if anyone can spout out titles or guesses at what they think it may be it will be greatly appreciated. Also this anime was dubbed so if that helps at all.
