Seriously though, here’s why you should read Akatsuki no Yona
Although it’s in the shoujo category, the main plot is adventure, with the romance being a subplot.
It starts with a spoiled airheaded princess who only cares about her hair and trying to get the boy she likes to notice her. When he kills her father and chases her out of the castle, Yona is forced to flee with her bodyguard and learn how to survive the harsh way.
It highlights friendship bonds like no other manga.
At first you think it’s a harem but you realise it’s literally the opposite; they’re a big cute dorky broken family who would die for each other.
The main character (Yona) is the epitome of female character development done right. It’s well paced and the trauma is very realistic. In time, she goes from a weak naive girl to a warrior princess that basically leads a group of monsters.
She starts to learn swordsmanship to protect her friends and loved ones.
She is forced to open her eyes to the horrid reality of poverty and how it infected the kingdom.
Also her strength doesn’t negate her femininity. Girls can be cute and like pink and still kick ass.
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS AND FRIENDSHIPS
THE HEALTHIEST SHIP I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE
No character is completely bad or completely good. The mangaka makes sure all the characters are flawed.
The Mom Friend™ is the 15-year-old pretty boy.
character development everywhere
STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS
STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER CARING ABOUT OTHER FEMALE CHARACTERS
LITERALLY EVERYONE loves seeing Yona being badass. Except the Mom Friend because he worries too much.
AMBIGUOUSLY ASEXUAL, GAY, AND BI CHARACTERS
At times it gets completely angsty and other times it gets hilarious and it’s a perfect balance.
Realistic body proportions????????
Honestly it’s such a good manga, and the mangaka has written many stories before so she’s well-versed on how to construct stories and there’s foreshadowing EVERYTHING and I’m weak for well-constructed plot.
The managaka is a genius, I promise. She keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole story.
It also has a cute anime that closely follows the manga for the anime folks.
Hello? Do you know why Yoneda sensei stops drawing series Ore ni Koi Shite Dousunda? It's such a great series :(
Honestly I don’t know the exact motive that made Yoneda Sensei drop it. I can tell you what are my personal guessings tho: Ryouji and Tora are close relatives, they are
respectively uncle and nephew; since they ended up having sex,
the plot took the incestuos road and
this might be the reason? Or were there “orders from above” (like proof-readers, chief-editors and similar) not to continue this path ‘cause it went too far? Or maybe it was simply Sensei who didn’t want to continue it or who had personal life issues and who started her long hiatus period without putting an end to Ryouji and Tora developments …? These are just my personal suppositions of course and neither of them could be right. If any of you want to add more guessings, please do it :)
Anyway I feel you, Anon, ‘cause me too I love Ore ni Koi Shite Dousunda and I’d love it to continue, as well as I’d love Yorube Naki Mono to do the same. But I guess Sensei will never finish them. Now she has Saezuru, which is having a huge impact and success (and I couldn’t be happier for that!) and she has started other amazing projects like “Rainy Days, Yesterday” and “Op: Yoake Itaru no Iro no Nai Hibi”.
And ‘cause of all her stunning hard work, let’s whole-heartedly wish her to take care and stay healthy
I just want to remind you all that Fitz’s first instinct was to give Will the goggles in the dust storm.
Hydra (obviously) gave him no equipment and nothing to make his intergalactic travels easier (boy had to kick It in the face with dress shoes for goodness’s sake) but he was still willing to give up the only thing he had to help it Will.
