Anime Review: Yona of the Dawn

Standard

I Love Yona. She’s beautiful, she’s funny, and most of all, she can think for herself. If she weren’t a hand-drawn character, I would totally… be her servant! (What did you think I was going to say?)

Kidding aside, Yona’s tale is one worth remembering among so many of the new anime series. And since I’ve been talking about Liberation for this month, I have to say: this is my favorite of the four that I have featured.

Before I get to this review, allow me to list a few limitations. First, there are plenty of things I would like to say about this series, but I will be focusing mainly on the main theme at hand. So if you want me to comment on the Korean influence or the characters or the funnies, I am saying it now! Second, this is a feminist anime (no argument there), and I will be critiquing it in that perspective. Third, I will be focusing primarily on the latter half of the series, so there will be SPOILERS! But you should already know that.

And fourth, if you came here for some Hak fan service, here you go!

Great Moments in Fall 2014 Anime

Standard

The end of the Fall 2014 season, and the year, is upon us. And since many of my simulcasts have wrapped up, it’s time to once again share some of this season’s great moments. The following 12 moments are comprised of roughly 20 anime series I have watched, which don’t even make up half of what aired!

This season, I am doing things a little differently by including a theme for the season. Fall 2014’s theme is Stars and Flowers, courtesy of this season’s Yuki Yuna is a Hero. The moments shown here, in my opinion, reflect this theme.

These are the great moments (but not necessarily the greatest moments) of Fall 2014 anime. You can find all of these titles on Crunchyroll.
