I think that dragon arm is pretty awesome tbh. He and Hak actually makes a decent team when working together. I think Ki-ja still need better control over his powers though especially around Yona. Hope he can maintain that eventually..why blush so much Ki-ja

Overall good episode. I find that Yun has so many survival skills when it comes to being outdoors.

lol @ the princess telling two guys not to argue. Lots of Hakuryuu's first times including battle. The princess's archery is good, too, with bishounen's instruction. Seems like he admits that childhood guy is strong during the battle.

lol @ during dinner. Guestimating where Seiryuu is. With current situation by childhood guy and bishounen's medicine and knowledge, Hakuryuu feeling inferior with his sense of dragons.

So they finally saw Seiryuu, who has mask, next ep.

Loving the chemistry between Ki-Ja and Hak already. It actually provides a better comic relief than the occasional slapstick.

I can already see how Yona's character is slightly improving and adapting to her current lifestyle. Ki-Ja is kind of like an image of her past self, in the beginning of her journey. Again, great pacing.

Yoon always has to remind us that he is just a bishounen, huh? Well, I can give him a break this time due to the circumstances.

Saw some glimpses of the Blue Dragon in the PV. Can't wait for his debut next week.

This consistency is amazing :3 Another great ep ^^

Kija and Hak's interactions are so fun XD The fight was awesome with both of them admitting to the others strength. And Kija counting defeating 28 then Hak making up 40 was lol

Kija calling Hak a monster after seeing him wounded and their reactions was funny hehe.

Lol'd at Yona pulling Hak's hair to pull him XD So cute :3

The scene when Yona tested Kija's strength by making him hold the bag and arrows was lol

Kija realizing his life from now on eating and sleeping wise XD

Hak's "Don't interfere when it was getting good" when Yona wanted to feed him was cute.

Kija is starting to like Yona as a person and not because of her blood. Dat Doki Doki blush after Yona told him he's irreplaceable XD

Shin-Ah incoming >.<!! Wow though. We're already ep12 :O

Hak's hobby xD It is fun to see Ki-ja and Hak interact!

That really broad sense of direction on finding the others and being scared of insects!

Defeating all those bandits, Ki-ja's bloodthirsty moves! Yona managing to shoot a person's hand! It was nice to see the dragon's power in action.

Yona trying to pull Hak by the hair. Ki-ja giving a good indication of the differences in strength from the quiver xD

Unable to sleep in the wild. Ki-ja wanting to be a better help and they finally know the place to find the blue dragon.

His dragon arm was epic, I can't wait to see what type of powers the other Dragons have.

So cute! All of them! I'm glad they all get along so well... for the most part.
Nice to see some Ki-ja combat! They make a good team if they didnt try to kill each other.
I thought for SURE we would see the blue dragon this episode. Oh well! NEXT EPISODE!!

Awwwn, the princess makes the dragon go doki doki :3
She have the potential to create a harem, but no ordinary harem, a motherfucking dragon harem! And in every harem, there is the prefered one and that would be Hak. On the other hand, Soo-Won will be the guy that forever be bitter of having excluded himself of her harem...

More seriously, she makes a good duo with Yeon with the bow. It's like a sniper and his spotter. If she can upgrade her range, they could really become useful. Not only that, a strong woman will always have more influence in an eventual negociation.

Who would have thought that the dragon weakness is... bugs? It's something they must hide at all cost, imagine if the enemy found out! He also got some nice devellopement. It must be hard to be that powerful will feeling so useless. But now, they'll meet the blue dragon and that little squirrel from the OP :D

This white dragon guy isn't a badass but that's what makes him funny. Getting scared of bugs LOL. And he wants to protect the princess.

His fighting is awesome. Terrifying.
Hak and dragon boy make a good duo. Very funny.

Looks like the blue dragon man will be a cool guy.

The pacing is nice. Very nice.

Now, I like Ki-Ja and all, but he is getting in the way of HakxYona time xD Unacceptable!

Loving the interactions between Hak and Ki-Ja already. Watching them was hilarious.

That Dragon's Arm is pretty sick in a fight, can't believe bugs are his weakness though.

Love seeing Yona's dedication to getting stronger, but I wish she would use a weapon other than a bow. Enemies tend to sneak up close to her, where the bow is useless.

Blue Dragon is next. Jeez, hoping these Dragons don't all just fall in love with Yona. Hak has enough love rivals as it is!

Those bugs in the beginning grossed me out. Which I guess is the point.

Kija got the doki doki fever. It's totally just the dragon's blood, though.

I'm majorly looking forward to next episode.

Such a strong character like Ki-ja is scared of bugs? What a silly weakness!

Hak and Ki-ja's rivalry continues to be hilarious! Though, loved how they acknowledged each other's strength while fighting.

Ki-ja's interruption on Yona feeding Hak and calling it a menial task was pretty funny! He was probably a little jealous..

Yona's complimenting Ki-ja and making him go "doki doki" was nice to see. Poor guy has been beating himself up for feeling like a useless companion. Finally he restored some confidence.

Good episode. New harem member Blue Dragon incoming next week. (^^)

So the White Dragon started having doubts about is role.
But he seemed a bit "possessed" when fighting.
I wonder if there's gonna be problems with that.

With each passing episode, I like Hak even more. xD Loved how he trolled Ki-ja with the false alarms of bugs. It was quite funny that Yona even called it Hak's hobby when he messes with people.

Ki-ja is proving to be quite good in battle, but it quite inexperienced with the outside world in the general. xD Looks like we'll encounter the Blue Dragon next episode.

I know the pace is a bit slow, but if they're going to make it slow, I wouldn't mind seeing it even slower. It would give more time for character development and such. The interactions are still fun to watch, though.

I'm still not sure what they plan to do once they have the dragons assembled.

I can see now how it will be a bit more complicated to find all dragons. Ki-ja can't exactly pinpoint them from that distance, and they might not be that welcoming as the white dragon clan, but insist on rituals and tests etc. Heck, they might even try to hide, not just from anyone, but from the other dragons, aswell. If Ki-ja can feel them, they can probably feel him. They do not exactly expect him and therefore won't constantly be "feeling" for him, but still..

Anyways, to find them all they have to do is to walk in one direction until Ki-ja feels that the direction changed. Walk into that direction until the direction changes again. Rinse and repeat. At the very least they will have rough area where the dragon must be. Theoretically, that area should get smaller and smalle. If his sense is at least somewhat accurate, the direction will change after walking just over half the length of the square. Even if not, should still speed up the search by a good bit.

Lol, so this is supernatural anime now?

It's always been, you just didn't know it until a later episode ;)

Hak and Ki-ja too funny. Ki-ja feels somewhat useless in the group, as he's not well versed in geography like Hak nor can he make food or tend to health. It's not surprising though considering he was pretty sheltered, despite having an awesome power and good at fighting. It's kind of like when Yona got out of the castle too. She got used to it, and Ki-ja will too ^^ Plus, it's helpful that at least he can tell where seiryuu is .

this was so good :DD seriously, this anime is doing a great job with the characters, humor, animation, and pacing. Like this is honestly such a breath of fresh air. I'm really loving the interactions between Ki-ja and Hak XD They're so awesome when they fight together. I'm glad Yona's improving at least slightly, in protecting herself, but she still has a long way to go. It was nice seeing Ki-ja's reaction to learning more about Hak. Already, Ki-ja's character arc has started :3 I'm super excited to see the blue dragon next week; his character design looks really awesome. So, we're already almost halfway through!! I hope we get a second season (this anime is freaking awesome).

I lol'd so many times during this episode, goodness. when da fuk did AnY get so funny? its comedy is supposed to be generic unfunny dribble

I'm gonna thank the chemistry between Hak and Ki-ja which is a true breath of fresh air in this series.

Spectacular episode, easily the best one since episode 2. Have I mentioned how great of characters Hak and Yona are? 'Cause they are.

The road to find the Blue Dragon continues. Hak and Ki-ja began their rivalry of being useful to Yona. The White Dragon is horrified with insects. He's also not accustomed to sleeping outdoors. That's just proof that he's been living a life of luxury.

Time to meet the Blue Dragon next episode. I hear he's quite the eye gazer.

Yoon is the best, just after best girl Yona. He's a genius bishounen (saint) and puts up with all y'all.

Love p. much everything to do with this episode except that it ended. Ki-ja was a perfect addition to the group (despite my fears) and his dynamic with Hak is (どっきどっき) exciting. Can't wait for the blue dragon. Next week can't come soon enough.

Comedy is awesome XD I love this ep

Though, I guess this really is going to be a reverse harem eh? :( Was hoping for less emphasis on the romance between other males and Yona and maybe have different kinds of bonds.

Yona is the perfect mother awww or rather they all seem like siblings with Yun being the parent

Kija... you're adorable.

Pretty damn great to finally see some action in a while! Ah, forgot that Yun hasn't seen Hak fight.

Can tell Kija doesn't feel helpful enough... yep, confirmed.

Still practicing? Diligent princess gj gj

OMG Yona is smooth~

Bumped up rating to 8, don't know why I hadn't before, but the comedy really is the best.

Love the chemistry between Hak and the white dragon. Hope it only gets better or at least stays consistent for the rest of the show. Yona being such a boss when she smacks them both that one time haha. Also, white dragon falling in love with Yona? Too bad for him that Yona has Hak in her sight :P

Hak being delighted was hilarious, too. Hakuryuu-same no bakaaa xD

Ki-ja is very entertaining, a lot more than I imagined him to be.

Loving Hak's character more and more every episode. Maeno Tomoaki has done his best job as Hak imo.

Can't wait to see blue dragon, he seems to be my fav. type of chara.

Get decent by episode. Great to see Ki-Ja~...actually i still surprised on how Chiwa Saitou and Masakazu Morita work together again after they're together seiyuuing Kotarou and Kotori on Rewrite Visual Novel. lol

Both Hak and Ki-Ja is intertaining. can't helped myself laugh(That "Shirohebi")..xD

Can't wait next episode..Shin-ah?!

Haha I'm liking the competition between Hak and Ki-ja. "Hak, I will feed you. Open your mouth!" "No princess, I'll do this menial task for you!" Also, the part when the bandit was like: "oh look! There are two women in those bushes!" And Yun was like: "I'm a handsome young man -.-" was also funny. I didn't think the comedy fit in at the beginning but it definitely works now! I'm really liking this series!

The dynamics between hak and the white dragon is simply awesome. I started thinking this show was just ok but the interactions and how well the characters mesh together is so heart warming and awesome :D

I feel like it has been a while since Yona reflected on soo-won and that makes me happy :)

overall i think this anime will be ending my anime drought lol, it shall be glorious i hope!
