I haven’t read or watched it before, and know nothing! Hopefully everyone will be good with their spoiler hiding.
I fell in love with the story through the anime and bought the first ten volumes in Japanese around three years ago. I’ve read through the first volume and a half or so, but life got really hectic at that time so reading it got put on pause for a while. I’ve been focused on reading and translating light novels recently so I haven’t come back to it.
I’m glad you gave me a reason to add it to my weekly schedule! I’m excited to finally get to the rest of the story.
I’m basically in the same boat as AshesIntoFlame. I watched the anime when it came out and really enjoyed the setting and characters. A real shame that it kind of just ended in the middle and hasn’t gotten another season…I started it in Japanese a while ago, but life kind of got in the way. I’ve wanted to get back to it for a long time, so I’m looking forward to reading with y’all!
I’ve read up to something like volume 15 or 16 in English. So I haven’t finished it and I’m excited to catch up in Japanese.
I read it, re-read it multiple times watched the anime multiple times and bought special edition Japanese volumes to get Cards etc. (Will post some pictures later)
I love the story and one of my other closest online communities is where we discuss all things Yona
In the poll, you might want to make it clear whether the Vol 1 is JP or ENG version Also, love the fact you added the final option for “Click click polls”
@valkow i hope you’ll enjoy it!
@AshesIntoFlame @Rain32 Glad to know you guys loved the anime! I planned to rewatch it but since I’m rereading it I put that on hold. Hopefully I’ll understand a bit more of the anime without subtitles after going through the manga in Japanese
@eainge Do you plan to continue it in English while we go through it in Japanese? O:
@KyokaJiro I’ve bought some special editions too! The Yona calendar is in front of me as I type and I got the next volume’s special edition on preorder. The only thing is I haven’t reread it in years so I’m looking forward to re-experiencing the story.
I meant JP. Whelp can’t change the poll now
Haha no I’ll read it in Japanese. I’ll start from the beginning with you.
I’m also joinining in here
I don’t have the book now, but I’ll order a digital version when we start.
Reading aloud sessions on discord sound fun, but never did anything like this before.
I watched the anime with Italian subtitles (I am Italian by the way).
I like a lot the characters, and I enjoy the story. As with every other anime out there that I like, I setted up as usual my mental note of one day reading it in Japanese.
Little I know that the day after I would find you guys.
So “why wait, why not start right now” I thought. And this is why I ended up here
Just got my books in the mail! Yippeeee!
It was meant to be! Nice to have you on board.
