I haven’t read or watched it before, and know nothing! Hopefully everyone will be good with their spoiler hiding. :grin:

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. :slight_smile:

I read it, re-read it multiple times :grin: watched the anime multiple times and bought special edition Japanese volumes to get Cards etc. :stuck_out_tongue: (Will post some pictures later)

I love the story and one of my other closest online communities is where we discuss all things Yona :slight_smile:

In the poll, you might want to make it clear whether the Vol 1 is JP or ENG version :slight_smile: Also, love the fact you added the final option for “Click click polls” :grin:

@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 :smile:

@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 :woman_shrugging:

I’m also joinining in here :slight_smile:
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 :slight_smile:
一緒に素敵な冒険をしよう!

Just got my books in the mail! Yippeeee!
