I think I read the manga just a few weeks back.

I am actually looking forward to this. Expect 1 cour and some anime original material though because of the studio. But given what they did with Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, I am looking forward to it. Hope to see a PV soon.

This is one of the happiest days in my entire life. A dream come true! I absolutely love the manga. Hopefully it will be more than just 12 or 13 episodes. So excited to see Yona and Hak in the anime!

They did Soredemo and it was actually quite good, but that's my opinion. You rated it halfway so yeah. Different opinions~

>Yona is the sole princess of the kingdom, living the luxurious and carefree life as a princess should. She has it all: the finest clothes and cosmetics, the most divine sweets, a loving emperor as a father, and the hottest cousin crush, Soo-won, anyone could ever hope to have. Now, if only her bodyguard, Son Hak, wasn't so annoying to her and her hair wasn't so red.

>But her nearly perfect world quickly shatters as the man she loves, Soo-won, murders her father and the path to his ascension to the throne is assured. Son Hak escapes with Yona, and they lead a life on the run from that point on.
Ooh, now we're talking.

I'll give it a try.

Storyline sounds interesting, and it's Saito Chiwa and Maeno Tomoaki in lead roles, along with Suwabe-san and Minagawa-san in supporting roles so my interest is pretty piqued.

It's happening! I was expecting this Hana to Yume manga to be animated after soreseka.
Really satisfied they are going with the drama CD cast + character design looks just fine ♥

I planned to start reading this manga since a long time ago but still haven't done it. Guess I'll just watch the anime instead and read the manga when the anime will be done.

Not really fond of Pierriot (arg their recording mics for Soredemo, I'm still bothered by it), but it seems like they will be able to make very neat animation, we'll see with Tokyo Ghoul.

Hm~, haven't I seen this work (on MAL) before... ~.~ But I definitely like the art, so it's worth adding to PTR and PTW.

Now that's something to look forward to. <3

Omg YEEES, what a wonderful news!!! I was just saying to myself recently that I would love to see Akatsuki no Yona animated, and wow, didn't expect to see this at all :D Only slight problem I have is I wonder where they'll end it since it's still ongoing, and there's already 14 volumes out. It's not as slice of life as Soredemo Sekai since there's an actual plot it's moving towards, so I can only see it ending with either a cliffhanger, or an anime original ending. Hopefully a cliffhanger. Well, I'm still happy to see this announcement. Now I'm just waiting for Akagami no Shirayukihime to have an anime too and my life will be complete.

Aw yiss. Fantasy action shoujo just doesn't looked the same on paper as it does on TV. And there's so much tension, a feeling like death could be around any corner. And actual worldbuilding (Fantasy Korea!).

I hope Pierrot can pull it off!

One of the shoujo manga I am following. I can assure you guys, no studio can turn this into a horrible anime because the manga is easy for adaptation and the story is pretty good. :)

More shoujo adaptions. I've heard this one is similar to Reimei no Arcana anyways.
