Yona and her friends head out in search of a crop that can grow even in barren land. On their travels, Hak becomes filled with grim determination while training Yona in swordsmanship. Yona notices that he’s acting differently and tries to cheer him up, but what Hak does next leaves her stunned!
On Princess Yona's 16th birthday, she's trying to plot a course through her marriage proposals until a coup forces her to flee her castle with a childhood friend, the edgy General Hak. Add in a likable villain she loves and you have a shojo love triangle ready to rumble... but not much rumbling happens. The story's fictitious setting is reminiscent of the fantastic ancient China in the classic reverse harem manga Fushigi Yuugi, but without the humor or the magic. In fact, aside from the eye candy of the costumes, the book is lacking all around: the plot and characters are simple and stale. By the end of this first volume, Yona hasn't developed personal agency or become the warrior the cover suggests. However, what story there is has good pacing and layout, and the art is high quality. There's promise for the future volumes, if Kusanagi (NG Life) can bring the characters to life.
I really hope this this manga is extremely successful. I have loved Yona of the Dawn for many years, and was my first manga and anime. This series has been such an inspiration to me and all of the problems I have faced. I hope this series never ends cause I will literally cry. I really hope this manga Yona of the Dawn gets a second season on Crunchyroll. I really want this manga series to continue forever. Thanks💗💗💗💗💗💗💗❤️❤️😭😭
