The 15th issue of Hana to Yume magazine will be announcing an anime adaptation of Mizuho Kusanagi's Akatsuki no Yona manga. This adaptation will feature the cast and staff from the earlier drama CD adaptation alongside new contributors. Studio Pierrot will be in charge of the animation.
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.
>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.
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!).
