While some people have seemed to have given up on Yoakena, I somehow find myself liking the show as it keeps on progressing, even if the main plot point of the story is the cliched “royalty falls in love with commoner from opposing kingdom” type. Perhaps it’s just my nostalgic self longing for this old and well-used genre as I can lie down and enjoy the ensuing drama.
Make no doubts, Yoakena is solidly going along the Feena path, which of course is the main point of the show and it’s doing it well. Tatsuya as the male lead one of the better harem masters I’ve seen (though calling him a harem master is kinda wrong since he’s only interested in Feena actually). Male harem leads should be kinda like him, not too wimpy yet not too gar (like Kyon’ichi). I really find the chemistry that’s blossoming between him and Feena fun to watch. ‘sides, he’s a guy I wouldn’t mind respecting as a King :).
The rest of the cast have their own things going on too, though not much focus is being given to them. Mai and Mia definitely are sisters separated at birth, along with Natsuki too. I /r/ more of Sayaka and Karen too. I just love the Setsuna-ish vibes that are coming from Karen ;). Also, I have to say Jun is really playing out his “pierrot” role very well. Keep up with the chibiness too :)!
