I bet you look at a white piece of paper and rate it a 1/10 because there's not enough of other colours :/

Just want to say, the more I read Akatsuki no Yona manga the more I found your review on the anime more inaccurate than ever. It was inaccurate in the first place too though imo. Sorry I just have to say it

You, you sir, have my respect. Despite appearances, you have decent taste. Your scoring system is actually good and I agree with most of the stuff in your profile description. Btw, screw the haters below.

At some point in the show, Yona mentioned something about escaping from her bubble of a spoiled princess, learning about the difficulties of life and such. Ironically, this show never managed to escape from its bubble of a shoujo-pandering, unbearably sappy, politically shallow, purposeless mess of tropes and forced superficial development.

She escaped the life of a princess, while it was slow, it happened even in the anime itself, SLOWLY DEVELOPING doesn't mean NOT DEVELOPING
The anime has already shown how she developed during the last quarter, I'm not sure if you're watching but you can see Yona who's afraid to handle weapons is now unhesitatingly tried to kill a corrupt leader. Decision making was not in her book until she saw the dangers of her life and the failures oh his father's governance.
Featuring a middle ages Korea kingdom apparently in turmoil; Yona stars as a completely clueless princess with already 2 incredibly hot young men who can’t resist to “protect” her. A coup occurred, for reasons still unclear after 24 episodes, killing the king and forcing Yona to take flight with her Boyfriend #1 (Hak) after finding out the identity of the perpetrator being Boyfriend #2.Thus ensues a long winded journey as Yona travels and develops as a person and a benevolent, charismatic ruler, reaching for that ultimate goal with also a lot opportunities for romantic development, or so you’d think.

Her father spoiler her, logic pls, not every parent are logical and reasonable to truly educate their children.

Suwon's reason to power was left to audience to think about it themselves, but it was clear that his Father Died and he wants some revenge, but also he saw the country is falling apart under the guise of being peaceful, and he took the step to become a ruthless ruler, an ambitious lad has now become a renowned respectful leader using diplomacy to prevent war and strategies to gather evidences to remove the corrupt leaders. Basically a beautiful Hitler.

On an episode to episode basis, the show doesn’t fare too well either. Most episodes focus on Yona’s journey to find the “4 dragons” based on a prophecy told by a random drunk priest lying half dead on the side of the road. As if that isn’t silly fantasy enough, these dragons are bound to her by DESTINY, meaning the moment she caught their eyesight, they become a harem member. Yep, she doesn’t even need to convince them. Most of the arcs dont have much depth and doesn’t contribute to the big picture. Additionally, they also try to get the audience to sympathise to the autistic, utterly stereotypical and forgettable dragons that become irrelevant the moment they join the harem.Boyfriend #5 (Blue dragon) arc in particular had a lot of issues that should really have been touched on like why are soldiers attacking the villagers? Why do the little kids keep dying? Why do they fear something that saves them? Instead it focused on the superficial “suffering” of the hot boy. And of course, Yona saves the day in the most stupid way possible “because his hands are gentle, so I’ll trust him”, right. The Boyfriend #6 (green dragon) arc got a bit closer to what the show should have been but collapsed when it became yet another generic beat the big fat evil guy who oppress people out of his greedy desires (and really want to put his hands on Yona), joining awkwardly righteous pirates too nonetheless.

That's a fucking demand at this point, you're looking at a shoujo genre, and the storyteller was not even trying to complicate the prologue at all, you're just looking at the preface of the story and judging it already as a whole. They are still developing in the Manga, none of them were put there for trophy purposes, all of them has connections from the descendants.

Aside from that, you're demanding to look for failure for the king, and here you are criticizing it's fucking generic, then what the fuck do you truly want? A lot of people in reality are simple as those generic bastards, and the bastard in the anime a criminally organized, even Suwon tried to investigate it after the festival he antended.
It’s funny how the show realizes the complete lack of purpose in trying to gather up these bishounen on the last episode due to Yona still being completely clueless and a failure in story writing discussed earlier. In attempt to correct this she is given a “purpose” but it’s clear the author still have no idea how to advance the plot and neither does the show become any less superficial.

Character wise, the show features a very generic cast of forgettable characters to poorly developed ones. Yona is often said to have developed greatly, which is nothing short of phony. Physical strength is not the equivalent of mental fortitude; and her excessive plot armor only further depreciates any signs of growth she has. There was only one instance in which she actually realizes she did not want to lose anything else, which was real development. All other instances are just the plot forcing her to take action in an attempt to fool the audience of any real substantial development. For example, when she shot said big fat evil guy, there was hardly any real change in her character or way of thinking, in fact she did it just to get patted on the head. The show tries to make it sounds fancy it but in reality it is exactly just that. And with this much “growth” as a human she has gathered in 24 long episodes, her development as a ruler is completely pointless to discuss.
Boyfriends #1-7 suffers heavily from being bogged down to tropes, wish fulfillment and shoujo pandering. They aren’t really allowed to have any thoughts other than about Yona (and protect her because DESTINY). Boyfriend #2 (Su-won) is a potentially interesting character as a young mastermind of a coup but completely butchered by facetious “naïve boy” behavior towards important head figures for reasons I can’t think of besides pandering. His lack of screentime completely denies any chance of development, adding to long list of disappointment in this show.

Promotional animes are meant to read original material like the manga or light novel. Though I doubt you'll read it anyway...
Are you even watching properly? Blinded by your preferences over what the anime is trying to portray, failing to notice these small details and you act as if you've seen a lot, comparing common tropes rather than looking at the story itself, there's a lot of problem on your judgment.

Yona's moving forward, sure, but why put a fucking goal on it? How about I put that question into you. Why do you even live? do you have a Purpose? Why do you even exist at this world? Isn't it similar? Demanding bastard.

Now criticizing the Harem Dragons, sure that their existence was to be with Yona, so why do you criticize that? It's part of the anime and part of the manga, if you're looking for proper development then don't even try to watch anime, they are a medium not meant to be complicated at all. Demands are one thing but it has gone to the point of trying to rationalize something you don't want, make your review shorter and say I don't like Shoujo Harem, much better than implying that the story itself has failed when it isn't. You're just looking at a different perspective and you're trying to justify your illogical demands.

I'm off and not gonna reply anymore

Ok, you should read the manga of Akatsuki no Yona and judge it again, the anime is just the prologue of the whole story, you've pointed out what's lacking in the anime which was present in the manga, it has featured Civil War, Diplomacy, Border Threat, Drugs, Epidemic, Agriculture and more, the anime itself stayed loyal on the manga, and most flawed you're pointing out is just a demand of what you like, if you truly want some war stories, read some Light Novel or even Web Novel, there's a lot of them which won't get an anime or manga like in this thread

Read you Yona review and found that your reaction of it being a Shoujo is exaggerated and contains many generic 'reasoning' usually used by elitists. Either you didn't watch much Shoujo genre or you are just like that. I appreciate a good review with bad rating on anime I like, but your review seems just want to bash the show you don't like which in the first place is your fault for misplacing expectations. Thanks

that was one great review you did for Yona. nicely done

Many, many, many of your opinions will turn out to be uninformed or just flat out wrong. No, the fact that you believed it doesn't make it any more valid or worthwhile, and nobody owes your viewpoint any respect simply because it is yours. You can be wrong or ignorant. It will happen.
