It’s the final confrontation with Kum-Ji. Yona and Yun get some help from one of the captives, and they are able to set off the flare as the final stage of their plan. Kum-Ji tries to high tail it out of there, but Yona has other plans for him. Afterwards, the pirates celebrate with lots of alcohol until they all tucker themselves out. In the morning, Yona decides to go for a walk and runs into the last person she expects to be in Awa. The entire ordeal shows Jaeha that he does yearn to be part of Yona's team, so he finally agrees to go with them as they seek the last dragon warrior.
Yona finally proves she is a worthy warrior next to all of these men who have supernatural fighting powers. This volume has a lot of action and is very well paced. I enjoyed the culmination of Yona's hard work and her finally becoming a warrior in her own right. The end chapter was pretty filler-y with the scale of the White Dragon, but since we finished the Green Dragon story arc with one chapter left to go, it was to be expected. In an aside, Kusanagi mentioned she wanted to do more chapters that involved everyone doing something cute and funny, so I suppose that's how we got the Scale of the White Dragon.
