Akatsuki no Yona review

Apr 16, 2021
I rarely write review, especially for a shoujo manga cos majority of them are lame, but this manga melts my heart so much that I am compelled to write a glowing review on it hoping that this manga may be known by more people.

For once, I am surprised that there is a reverse harem that does not suck and actually has a good story. If you're a fan of romance who's been dissapointed with so many junk out there, then give Akatsuki no Yona is a shot.

The best part about this manga is the character interactions between all of them, it has the right amount of humor, romance, and sadness that make my heart ache when I read it.
I love how the characters are not one dimensional, each have their own motivations behind their actions, and the "bad guy" imho are not the one dimensionally bad guy since things are not completely black and white here, and I personally can empathize with team SooWon more than team Yona.

Compared to a more hard core seinen that I prefer, the story here is quite PG-rated and the events fall together a little too convenient sometimes, but in comparison to all other shojo manga and especially reverse harem that focus on mindless self indulgence romance, this one is on its own league.

Every chapter on the manga moves the story forward and gives more background on the character that makes you care more and more about each one of them.
I binge watched the entire 24 episodes of the anime and continue binge reading the manga right after and cannot wait for more chapters to show up!
