    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.

      No, it is more of something like giving up motivations and ambitions, because of the possibility of making too much money, so that I do not lose something that takes care of important stuff, but makes it so that I will not be able to cover living expenses if and when I am on my own, or put myself in a situation where I am not happy because I recognize I am being paid more for doing nothing than what I am supposed to be doing because I got it done too early, thus killing my motivation or ambitions to do anything I actually want to do.

      Just things like that, which are all things that must be dealt with eventually.

      Yes, things must be dealt eventually but then again remember to take those things one step at a time. Ehhh, btw, where's @AniMeFReaK?

      I have no idea. Her profile says she was last on on March 29th and we never really talked after the last PM in the group, where I brought up possibly connecting via Discord.

      I hope she is doing alright.

    I tried to watch this anime since I have an interest in Mysteries. Of course it's already taken into account that this anime won't be the typical Detective Conan kind of Mystery genre that carries heavy and ingenious cases. Animation-wise the anime is good. Characters have a well put up background story. The plot was there and it obviously screams slice of life with a dash of mystery. This anime is light-hearted and may be enjoyable for some people that are fond of subtle mystery genres. The plot was there and I can also sense the attempt to draw in viewers with the main characters background stories but it wasn't just attractive enough to keep me hanging. There are parts of the anime that I think would've been better to be put near the end of the story to make it more thrilling.

      Other than being uncomfortable on my feet yesterday, things are going good.

    3. RyePotatoes


      What happened with your feet?

    4. brycec


      Nothing wrong with them per se. My grandma was in town during the weekend, and she is old enough that she is prone to falling.

      We went to give food to a family member and upon leaving, my grandma takes my hand, which made me think that I would likely fall, due to my grandmother’s weight and the fact that my left foot is raised because of a stroke.

  3. And they say you can't be a gothic loli with an axe😈

      You can be anything you want with an axe.  I mean, who is going to argue with someone with an axe?  :D



    2. RyePotatoes


      Haha, spot on! *sharpens axe*

  4. Happy Birthday Brycec-san! <3 :)

      It's pretty nice to see some old faces you know gets a lil lonesome sometimes. Waaaaaah, Honto ni Gomenasai! I didn't notice this. This is a very late reply but how are things going?

      There has been ups and downs but overall pretty good, what about yourself?

      Nothing really. Just wandering around here and there

  6. Does real life friends found in the internet counts? Cause I actually met up wwith some online friends a couple of days back and we sometimes hang out once in a while since we just found out that we live in the same city which was totally mind blowing for me. Though, I already had some real life friends (those I didn't meet online) who were interested in anime.
    It took me like 3 tries to finish this anime. As far as I can remember this anime consists of about 26 episodes or so. For me, the anime had times where it wasn't that consistent in the interesting section thus making it a bit boring in some episodes. I do understand that those happened because the anime likes to explain itself more making it a bit uninteresting but even so I do recommend not skipping any parts of the anime because no matter how uninteresting it may seem it all adds up at the end and creates a bigger impact if watched completely. It's a simple tale about a group of friends and their growing feelings towards each other and a sudden appearance of a mysterious guy in the picture. Will it destroy their friendship or will it lead to an unexpected turn of events that neither one of them had in mind? I think everyone can pretty relate in this anime. The feeling of uncertainty about a certain confession you would like to make towards someone, the feeling of being left behind by your friends, that feeling of chasing someone who is also chasing another someone, that feeling of being torn in choosing between your family and the one you love or just that simple feeling of having friends. It stirs up all your emotions until you can't take it no more.
    It's actually one of my favorite anime of all time. Let's start with the not-so-typical-romance between the two main characters which I'm pretty sure any anime viewers who wants to step out from the safe romance side would like. A not so brave boy with a lot of pure luck and a simple overly obsess girl is not your typical anime couple. Side characters in the anime also have interesting side stories which also develops as the anime continues and can pretty much entertain those viewers whose not into the romance between the main characters. Plot wise it's actually a winner. It's all about having future diaries which tells different futures and how these people possessing future diaries will survive in a game they have no choice but to submit to. The anime is totally psychological with a hint of romance. The plot twists are very unpredictable and somewhat mind boggling. I think this anime paved the way for Yanderes, their twisted personalities and how they face unrequited love.
    I can't say for sure if I liked the anime or not. It's more of like an "okay" anime well at least in my humble opinion. It didn't really leave an impression on me and I find it hard to empathize with the main character although the plot is new and refreshing and steps away from most animes. Common favorite genres like Romance, Comedy and even Drama is present in the anime. The setting of the anime is also good a somewhat after-war medieval age, the characters are okay and the animation is just amazing. As always, the essence of Mono No Aware is present and a sort of cliffhanger is to be expected at the end of the anime, spoilers alert! But so far, as a whole package, I find it hard to digest maybe because it's just not my cup of tea.
