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.

      Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!)
      Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia.
      I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the series, that we have some place to talk about it while we are watching it? (I never used a forum before maybe thats more of a chat/discord kind of topic idk)
      Anyways, it would be fun to talk about our impressions with someone who is also experiencing MHA for the first time!

      Senki Zesshou Symphogear

       
      This is one of Japan's top selling anime, with 5 seasons, over the course of the past 7 years. Season 3 was #1 in sales for its season, while season 4 was ALSO #1 in sales for its season. AND season 3 beat ONE PUNCH MAN for the ENTIRE YEAR. And it isn't popular in the absolute bloody slightest outside of Japan.
       
      I'm confused too, don't worry.

       
      But if you want one of the best hype action shows of the decade, Symphogear is for you. It does damn near everything that people love about shounen action shows, except it does them far better than most actual shounens, despite Symphogear not actually being a shounen.
       
      AND it's a fucking musical. Didn't see that coming, did you.
       
       
      It ain't cutesy, it lives off of the rule of cool and more or less can't go more than 5 minutes without something exploding or it dies, with music that's about as cool as that whole concept is.
       
      Watch this scene, and witness our beloved main character parry tank shells with her bare fists.

      Watch Order:
      Symphogear (a bit rough, don't judge the show based on this season. Still good, just not peak Symphogear.)
      Symphogear G (This is where Symphogear actually starts to shine, and it stays that way. A shitty side studio fucked up the first season, so they fired them and swapped out 90% of the staff and you're left with a season that's vastly superior to the first in absolutely every god damn way you could ever expect. Get. To. This. Season.)
      Symphogear GX (It got even prettier.)
      Symphogear AXZ (The animation got better.)
      Symphogear XV (Airing right now, and is really turning out to be a proper culmination and finale of 7 years of a franchise.)
       
      OOOOO
       
      Now that you've been so heartily informed of the best show ever, I'd love to hear what any of you think of it. First impressions based on this thread maybe, or impressions from you going to watch it! It's my favourite show by a mile, so I assure you I'm more than willing to chat your ear off about it, and if you aren't impressed by it... well, leave it to me

      EVERFROST is combining a concept album with an integrated manga for their new album. Has anyone seen this kind of thing before?
