Adventure, fantasy, romance
11 November 2018 | by Trixie_reviewsSee all my reviews

After the betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won, Princess Yona is forced to flee the palace only with Hak, who is both her childhood friend and bodyguard. After meeting the Oracle, they set on finding four guys who inherited dragons' blood to help her survive. During her journey, she soon discovers that her kingdom is not the idyllic place she was lead to believe and starts doing some things to change that.

I absolutely love this anime. Yona especially is evolving a lot throughout the season and her character arch from helpless girl to badass warrior is absolutely amazing. There are also sparks of romance in the air, from both Hak, her loyal and extremely hot bodyguard, and Su-won, the handsome cousin who is a guy you just gotta love to hate and hate to love (at first you might just think he's a villain, but it turns out it's far more complicated than this). I highly, highly recommend this if you like watching people fight and struggle but also create bonds and relationships that last a lifetime. Best way to categorize this masterpiece would be as an adventurous fantasy romance. It certainly gives you chills, in a good way, and toys with your emotions. I highly recommend watching.

PS: The squirrel eating meat and fish was creepy though. I don't know why they had to do it. I don't remember this being the case in the manga. I mean, it's a freaking squirrel. Give him some nuts instead.
