ANIME CHALLENGE: DAY 27

DAY 27 - Most badass scene from any anime character?

(SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED AKATSUKI NO YONA!) The Fight Scene from EP. 22 Yona Kills Kumji!

Akatsuki No Yona (PLOT):

Princess Yona lives a life of luxury and ease, completely sheltered from the problems of the seemingly peaceful Kingdom of Kouka; however, the sudden murder of the king and betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won places Yona's life in mortal peril. Forced to escape only with Son Hak, who is both her childhood friend and bodyguard, the naïve princess soon discovers that Kouka is not the idyllic place she envisioned it to be. Poverty, strife, and corruption run rampant, making reclaiming the throne nothing more than a wishful fantasy given the kingdom's current state. With only a mysterious legend to guide her, Yona must discover a way to restore Kouka to its former glory while being pursued relentlessly by the forces of the new King of Kouka.

WHY YONA'S FIGHT SCENE?

Well, starting off Yona goes through so much. She was held sheltered in a kingdom not knowing what the outside world was all about. Her father was afraid to let her out and kept her in there. Then all of a sudden she walks into her father's room to witness her fathers murder in the hands of her cousin. The man that she loved since she was young. Her cousin had revenge against the King, her father. So he killed him and had soldiers go after her and try to take her away but Hak protected her and they both escaped. Yona doesn't know anything, she can't fight or protect others. She is weak and scared. When she witnesses her father's murder and has to scurry the kingdom. She is scared and traumatized from what she saw. She can't stop crying and soon has fire burning within her eyes. Yona wants revenge against her cousin, she wants to become strong. Thus when soldiers come to take her away and Hak fights them off but Yona is captured by her hair. She grabs a sword and cuts her hair. Therefore, he has no grasp of her and she soon falls down a cliff in Hak's arms. Both Hak and Yona are assumed dead by the soldiers and they leave. Little did they know that they were only injured and are still alive lurking around a town down below. They take shelter and throughout the episodes she starts to learn how to protect herself by learning how to use a bow and arrow as well as a knife. She cried during the training but tried her best and trained day and knight. Yona becomes so strong, independent and brave! Quite the opposite of who she was before. I think that Yona has the most character development ever in an anime. She becomes so brave and courageous. The reason I chose this scene in particular is because it is the most badass scene I've seen from a character who started from the dumps and worked her way up. I love that she can know fend for herself. She took chances, got hurt but still protected her friends and to Yona that's all that matters because she doesn't want to lose anyone else. It's too painful for her! That moment she stood on the boat, getting ready to shoot with fire in her eyes was the moment I knew she was ready to take on whoever. She had trouble thinking about killing anything, animals and people. But in that moment she knew she had to do it and she did it. I was like, "YES, YONA! YOU GO GIRL!" Kill that man and she did!!!

I encourage all of you to do this challenge along with me, or just say in the comments what's the MOST badass scene from any anime character you've seen!
