Why have a real life boyfriend (#singlelife) when you can have fictional handsome guys instead?

This, hands down has to be one of my favourite anime of all time! We get to see Yona’s character arc as she grows from a weak princess into a kick-ass heroine! Also, all the characters are really lovely and this anime was really serious and yet very comedic!
