Akatsuki no Yona Episode 15
Su-won is back! And he's clearly playing his cards very close to his chest, seeming to spend most of the episode putting on a sweet, dippy act for the general of the Earth Clan, a man who is thirsting for war. This act does nothing to endear Su-won to the general...and very little to move the story forward, even though we who have been watching the show can pretty much put money on the fact that he has a clear reason behind his behavior. Is he proposing war games in order to show a doubting public that he means business? Gauging the strength of his forces in preparation for waging an actual war? It's hard to say, really, and given that the background theme of this episode is how weak a king Yona's father was, it's certainly going to be interesting to see what Su-won's plan is. Sadly it is far less interesting to watch him sweetly smile his way to its execution.
Back with Yona, meanwhile, the gang is looking for the Green Dragon, led by Gija's innate sense of where he is. They pass through a village raved by illness and neglect, and Yona must come to terms with the fact that her father, whom she believed to be a good, kind man, was not well-loved by his subjects. This is the first time we get to hear what the rest of the group thought of him, and apart from Hak, it isn't good. Yona's distress is probably the strongest part of an otherwise meandering episode, with a very strong performance from Chiwa Saito, who makes Yona's pained, stifled wails run down your spine. Of all of the trials Yona has had to face thus far, crushing her image of her father might be the hardest. 041b061a72
