The Green Dragon is one of my favorite characters in the series -- his interactions with Hak are always comedic -- and he's a great stepping stone for the group to get politically involved.
Readers who think this is a typical shojo should think again. This has a truly interesting plot, world and characters. The plot is more than just a setting so two characters can fawn over each other, though there is romance. The hero, Yona, has a backbone and fire in her eyes. It's great.
They'd better keep releasing all the volumes because the anime ends before the manga does (though there are hopes of another season).
The main character, Yona, starts off as a pampered princess, but after being betrayed on her 16th birthday, has to leave her palace. With the help of her bodyguard Hak she learns to use a bow and later a sword in a very realistic time frame (she's not an expert overnight and you'll often shown how practice effects her, lack of sleep, etc.) Later she goes on a quest to find legendary dragon warriors who are connected to the myth of how her kingdom came to be.
Yona's change from a princess to warrior is well done and it's wonderful to watch her grow. Other characters, such as her bodyguard Hak, also change. I adore how Hak goes from your typical "I must protect her" to not only training Yona but getting excited / pumped up as Yona becomes stronger and more determined.
While some of the characters have typical traits - the bodyguard, the charming thief, the smart one, the shy one - they are all given enough time to endear themselves to the reader.
The art is also good, though I have seen better when it comes to fighting (see Bleach by Tite Kubo). However, I still enjoy it.
Another solid volume in the series.

I am seriously obsessed.
The Blue Dragon joins the gang in this volume, and Yona gives him his first real name. He's honestly rather adorable.Read more
