Akatsuki no Yona review

Apr 16, 2021
I may stand as biased in my review, but I honestly love Akatsuki no Yona. I've re-read the entire manga three times. I especially recommend it if you enjoy shoujo manga.

-Story: (10) The story starts on quick and hooks you in. When I first read Akatsuki no Yona for the first time, I had originally planned to only read a few chapters then go to sleep. However, I was so intrigued I stayed up until 4 a.m. to read all the updated chapters. The story itself takes you on Hak and Yona's journey after Soo-won murders Yona's father. Together they eventually go out to seek new companions, each of whom get their own backstories. I won't say anymore in fear of spoiling the story, but to say the least, I laughed and cried while reading Akatsuki no Yona. Truly, a spectacular storyline.

-Art: (10) Oh man, the art is so beautiful. It's not super unique, but I personally love the look of the characters and the scenery.

-Character: (10) If any of you have seen Akatsuki no Yona's anime adaptation, you would understand how annoying pampered Yona is at the palace. However, during the beginning chapters of the manga, she is less annoying and stuck-up, which is a relief. Overall, Yona's character development is truly amazing. This is one of the reasons Yona is beloved by everyone she meets later into the manga (She's also one of my favorite characters of all time!). The author also creates the other main/side characters to melt your heart. I can truthfully say I have a crush on almost everyone of the characters.

-Enjoyment: (10) I LOVED this manga, and still am continuing to re-read it over and over again. I recommend putting on some good music while you're reading.

-Overall: (10) I have not read a better manga yet.
