I’ve been watching Yona! :-D I actually edited NG Life, a really terrific little series from the same creator, as one of the final things I did at TOKYOPOP, and I’ve been a fan of hers ever since, so I was super excited to see that this was getting an adaptation. And I’m really enjoying it! I feel like it starts off a little slow (well, maybe not “slow,” since you get an assassination and major political upheaval in the first episode…but it takes a while to really hit its stride), but it’s got great production values, and it totally captures the author’s quirky sense of humor and interesting characterizations. :-) She uses a lot of shojo tropes and things we’re all familiar with as readers, but adds just enough of a spin on them to make them interesting. I dig it!
