Lenni Reviews: “Yona of the Dawn” vol 5 by Mizuho Kusanagi

Now traveling with the White and Blue Dragon, Yona and company are on the move to a port town in search of the Green Dragon. The Green Dragon is Jaeha; a pirate who values his freedom more than anything else and thus doesn’t want to give up his life for Yona’s quest.

Have to take a moment to give major props to Captain Gi-Gan. She is just badass and I can’t wait to see more of her.

There had to be at least one of these fabled dragons who wouldn’t be on board with the “Let’s go serve our master without question” thing and Jaeha, who will obviously have a change of heart later, is such a swarthy darling, it’s hard to hold it against him. He’s not being lazy, he has his own crusade to focus on: trying to stop the influx of drugs and human trafficking to his town. Not exactly the kind of thing a jerk would make his personal mission.

But we all know he’ll join up. Probably in the same volume.

Here, we also have Yona learning what he father’s subjects really thought about their king and how corrupt things got in the outlying towns. Being faced with the fact her father wasn’t the good and kind man she idolized is shown very well and it’s good to see her face the reality that if you are a ruler, you can’t make everyone happy all the time. Yona has a long way to go to grow up. 4 out of 5.
