Finished up the first episode.
I think I’m definitely going to stick with this one.
For its first episode it’s very reminiscent of The World is Still Beautiful to me, but with less comedy and a bit more drama and action.


Yeah this one looks like a keeper for me too.


That Epic save by Hak at the end of the episode

Was pretty awesome.

“Akatsuki no Yona” 2nd OP Song PV Performed by Cyntia

February 18, 2015 3:30am CST
From their 4th album “WOMAN” released today

Victor Entertainment has posted a 90-second short PV and live performance clip for five-member girls rock band Cyntia’s 6th single “Akatsuki no Hana” on its official YouTube channel. It has been featured as the 2nd OP song for the ongoing TV anime Akatsuki no Yona (English title: Yona of the Dawn) since its 15th episode. The CD single of the song is just released today in Japan, simultaneously with their 4th full album “WOMAN” which also includes the song.

This is the second anime theme song for the band. Their 3rd single in January 2014, “Senkou Strings” was used as the 4th OP song (78th to 97th episode) for the Saint Seiya Omega TV anime, and it is still the top-selling single for them, ranking 13th in the Oricon weekly single chart.

Ep. 19

This series is rather awesome overall, and may be one of the very few FUNi series I actually pick up when it winds up coming out.


Ep. 21

Need I say more lol


Seeing her eyes like that, I wonder if she might have some hidden power since she basically a reincarnation of some master of the four dragons, or is her rage just that overflowing at times?


Ep. 22

and oops guess who she bumps into at the end?
