Damn that was awesome, certainly fulfilled the hype last episode built. The action was very well animated, Jeaha and Sinha's attacks looked so fluid. I especially liked how they used that slight wind effect, it looked very crisp.

And srsly, I always shipped Soo-won x Yona even though he killed her father because he's awesome and handsome and hot as fuck and idk he has long hair and I fugging love him.


What we all don't know YET is that murdering her father right in front of her eyes was a huge turn on for Yona. That's why she still has feelings for him. Hak doesn't have a chance in hell.

As if she's got enough skill to shoot that accurately from that far... Saying that, again some awesome eyes!!


Also, the battle animation was so good that it's almost criminal. Why can't we get more fluid and beautiful animation like that?

BUT. Su-won stole the episode! Holy crap, I got so excited when he spoke!! The sudden music really ramped it up too. Best character of the series shows up in the last few episodes, super excited for him. We need more of him doing political stuff... whatever happen to Yona's hurt ankle btw? Forgotten?
What the heck is the king doing taking a stroll around town by himself though...

HOLY CRAP HE RE-APPEARS. OH. MY. GOD. I think I may or may not have screamed... This anime seriously keeps getting better and better. I loved the action from the battle. I think it would've been nice to see more fighting sequences rather than the dragons blowing people away/only seeing zooms on the main character faces. Of course, I'm being unreasonable because of budget and stuff but I think it would've been really nice since the animation is already so pretty. More in-depth fight sequences would've been hella rad. Jeaha and Sinha were both realy awesome with their fight sequences though. I'm soooo happy with Yona's character development omg. I wonder if the anime is going to do anything concerning the fact that King Il was totally against Yona even holding a weapon, let alone killing someone, yet Yona just killed Kumiji... It would certainly be interesting to see the inner conflict that might occur. Also, holy cow, like what a great moment for Soo-won to appear. The next episode looks awesome and it'll definitely be interesting to see Yona struggle between Hak and Soo-won/the fact that she probably still loves Soo-won despite the fact that he killed King Il. Also, apparently Soo-won isn't actually a bad guy?? Like, does Yona recognize this now? Oh man, I'm really upset this is ending soon, like I was expecting this to be a really long ongoing anime. I hope this gets a second season; it's so freaking good.

This was an amazing episode. The execution, the pacing, the soundtrack, everything! The plan worked out brilliantly and Yona and Yun were so strong throughout the entire time, even in their position. The dragons and Hak were bad ass always, it was nice to see Kija and Shinha in action.

Also, that cliffhanger was something else. Did not expect her to run into Soo-won. Next episode come sooner!

Best episode yet, really glad to see Yona's hard work pay off. It was satisfying as hell to see her arrow kill Kumuji. This has been a really consistently good series so far, but this episode is on a whole other level. Dear god...

Can't wait for the next one, that ending got me.

Jaeha's arc was longer than the others but well worth it. The ship battle was intense and Yona has grown vastly as a result of this conflict. I guess it was inevitable but seeing her get her first kill was really jaw dropping. It was especially awesome when the OP music started playing the moment Kumji realized he was being aimed at. Yona has now completely gone against her father's wish and taken a life with a weapon. But it was also because she did that that Awa could finally have peace.

But wow, I picked the wrong time to finally catch up. That run in with Su-Won at the end, woooooow. I thought it was the yellow dragon for a moment but daaaaamn. It's going to be something else to see how Yona faces him after she's grown so much.

Wow!!! I absolutely loved this episode! From Sinha and Jaeha coming in and saving the day, to sensing Yona's blood lust, to the very end this was by far one of the best episodes I have ever seen. That ending though!!! Holy crap she has gone so long without having to think about Soo-Won and now all of a sudden she runs into him!!! Next episode is going to be amazing and I can't wait to see what they do! Is Yona going to be able to control that blood lust of hers when she is face to face with not only the man she loved, but the person who killed her father? Who knows what is going to happen and it looks like based off the preview that no one else has any idea what is going on! Oh man there seriously better be a second season or I'm flipping a table lol! Seriously though fantastic episode can't wait for the next one!

Shit. That cliffhanger though... I just can't get over it. I didn't see it coming at all honestly. I was gonna start reading the manga after this episode because I thought things going to slow down, but I just can't now. The shock factor of that scene was too valuable, I feel like it won't be the same if I read the manga.

Also, yes! Finally Yona killed someone, I have a serious love-hate relationship with Yona, she can be so badass but also a little sissy at times. I understand its to help her develop her character but eh.. I still get annoyed at her. I'm glad she was able to kill Kumuji though

So hopefully many will remember that Red Hair for many more anime to come.



The moment the arrow pierced right through the heart, Yona got over the death of her father. One of the most important incidents in the story and they couldn't have animated it any better :)

DAT ENDING! Holy hell! No wait 1st things 1st! Yona's amazing! Not only does she treasure life, shes willing to take it from those who dont deserve it! And she doesnt even lose sleep over it! But that ending! The whole time she was wandering I was thinking Kumji wouldve snuck up on her but then when she bumped into someone, I instantly thought "Yellow Dragon" but then he spoke and holy fucking hell its Soo Won! Please Pierrot, confirm a season 2 and scanlators, get off your asses, fuck the probable popularity and pick this up again! gods this week is gonna go by at a snails pace, isnt it?

"I used to be Lord of Awa, but then I took an arrow to the HEART!"

BEST EPISODE YET. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Studio Pierrot did an excellent job with the animation, especially with the battle sequences.

23 minutes of AkaYona pass by so quick. That was a really mean cliffhanger! The lead-in to the ED theme was so brilliantly used; it made me really hyped for the next episode. Next week cannot come any faster!

#YonaIsStrong

This was the episode of the series because this is where all 21 previous episodes of development for Yona finally hit it's final climax.

From the beginning we have seen our weak princess continue to doubt herself and call herself weak. She has been influence by her father to never hold a weapon. Not only did she train for what it would seem for months with a bow but actually has the vindication to shoot her enemy in the heart and kill a man is the pinnacle moment when we can finally say. Yona is Strong

THAAAAAAAAT ENDING!!

Amazing episode, amazing in every aspect. Yun realising how weak he is, the four dragons and Hak fight without getting slightest injury -beside the green dragon- and the best was Yuna's aura. That shot was just incredible.

Can't believe the cliffhanger though, how on earth can I wait until next week :'( ?

So true, Yona and Su-Won got united, I was like, OMG,OMG, I really want to see the next episode already. :)
Seriously why the anime is reaching to it's end of the season when it's getting so interesting: we really need a second season and pronto!!!

Don't tell me that they'll end the anime by introducing the fourth dragon, I would be so mad if that happens and my score will decrease //biased much

Anyways, dat Yona stare and the end. It was little rushed because its kinda different from the manga.

No reason to get mad, because there isn't many places they can end the season. :)
Hopefully they come to their senses and continues with another 2-cour straight after.

Nah, there doesn't seem to be alot of noticeable differences. I'd be willing to forgive
small changes considering how faithful they've been so far.

Her eyes full of bloodlust was just attractive. It even reached Kumji while also being shot in a quite far distance.

That cliffhanger tho. Things are really going smoothly.

I really hope for a sequel, it seems like there's still so much left in this story, at least in my opinion.
Finally their fate connects again. I'm so hyped right now *_*

instead of Soo-Won.
Poor Jae-Ha, luckily he was saved in a very cool way by Yona.

Don´t judge Soon-Won so fast. Wait. and if you´re able to...read the manga.
Also IMO to those who are curious about the last Dragon the blondie one in the opening that resembles a kiddo....read the manga....he is the BEST dragon of all.

Great episode. Can't wait for next week.

I love that the MAL score is almost in the 8s now and once we hit the end of this season, it'll rise even more.

Nice fighting scenes. Though I think it's lame they use "nobody gonna die" strategy.

Damn, I never expected Kumiji to killed by Yona-chan. I mean that arrow hit him right in the heart. That's what I call one kill shot. LOL

Anyways, that cliffhanger in the end. I never expected this to happen. Damn, I am exciting for next ep. Yona standing in front of Su-Yon, the man that killed her father. I really want to know her reaction. ^^

What I liked most were the additional soundtrack in the end that went so well with the ending theme. I mean they made the scene so dramatic. In addition, the other new OST were also very beautiful. I had to say the OST of this anime is very good. Classical, adventurous and beautiful.

I don't think it was necessarily a judgement, but seeing as Soo Won stuck a sword through her father and let him die a slow and painful death (bleeding out), you would think that it would be justice to avenge her the memory of her father by ending him.

It still strikes me ass odd that people still ship Soo Won and Yona. I mean, Soo Won is an interesting character, but how the hell could Yona still have residual feelings for him? What, is Yona going to forget he brutally murdered her father when she is fucking him senseless?

Ikr, but I guess people that haven't watched this anime think it's a love/romance shoujo anime. It's sad but that's why I think it's very underrated. Because the first ep. if this series were like that. It's sad that they have judged the whole series out of a couple ep.

Ikr. That's what I am talking about. The first couple of ep. give you this point of view, but after her father get's killed you realize that it's much different from the typical romance shoujo anime.
