Now that the Akatsuki no Yona anime is over, it's time to start reading the manga. But where do anime watchers begin? Where does the anime leave off and the manga-only content begin?
The answer is chapter 48. If Akatsuki's anime is popular, maybe they'll go ahead and animate a second season once enough manga content has come out. But generally speaking, shoujo manga never get high anime sales, even when the manga is wildly popular (look at Ao Haru Ride.) The manga is pretty much your only hope to find out the conclusion of this riveting oriental fantasy romance. Not that we're anywhere near the conclusion in the ongoing manga, either.
