Yona of the Dawn

Aka: Akatsuki no Yona

Even though it's not mentioned and nothing official has been announced this was a great First season.
I look forward to season 2... whenever it hits
cause it will come some day
we barely finished act 1 for crying out loud.

however i only have a little bit of my lunch left so onto the ramble.

On the surface Yona of the dawn is reverse harem with colour coded dragon boys.

However it's not that at all.
I mean there are elements of that but that isn't the point.

Yona, the young princess of Awa castle with fibrant red hair, is celebrating her 16th birthday. Old friends are coming to town and she's excited to see her old crush.
However that same night something is off and while trying to find someone she stumbles upon her Father in a pool of his own blood... and her childhood crush standing over him.
With the help of her guard she flees the castle and the possibility of death and becomes a fugitive in her own land.
While in hiding they come across a priest who tells her about the legend of the 4 dragons and their King.
The white dragon has Strength untold, The Blue has eyes that can see for miles, Green has legs so strong he can practically fly and the yellow has a strong body. They all follow their king the red dragon.
She is the reincarnation of the red dragon so while looking for a safe place to hide they decide to try and gather all the dragons.
They also travel with a cute little squirrel and a pretty boy who happens to be a genius.
However what will they do once they gather everyone? will they take on the one who murdered her father? or will they just continue to try and live.

and it's so good.
and it's so funny
and the music is so pretty
and not enough people are watching it.

Easily one of my favs this season (you are going to hear that a lot cause this season was pretty damn good) Easily one of the best 'reverse harem' type shows i have ever seen cause that is not at all what it is about.
The cliffhangers (especially near the end of the season) were a bit brutal but hey you can watch it all over on crunchyroll (or funimation but i think they are a week or two behind Crunchy) now.

But yeah, it's funny cause i was on the fence with this show for weeks.
and now it's one of the ones i waited for the most.

anyways lunch break is over so i'll just say give the show a chance, if you don't like it by the time the blue dragon is introduced you can probably stop but i'd urge you to continue.

Other shows i finished this season:
Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie
Your Lie in April - another stellar (but very sad) show 

Also (oh god i always get this title wrong)
Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!! finishes today, i wont get to watch till after work but spoiler, i love it

okay back to work~
