Yona of the Dawn is known as Akatsuki no Yona in Japanese. It is a fantasy anime television series. The basement is on a manga series of the same name. Mizuho Kusanagi wrote and illustrated it. A decade ago, this manga was published. It took place right on August 5, 2009. There are new volumes of the piece being published every day.
Many years have passed since the initial publication of the series. There was an announcement of plans by Studio Pierrot. The adaptation was made into an anime television series. Season 1 of the Yona of Dawn made way for viewers’ screen on October 7, 2014. The season came out as an immediate hit. Since then fans are eagerly waiting for the second season.
Season 1 of the Yona of the Dawn consisted of 24 episodes. The running time was till March 24, 2015. The series premiered on October 7, 2014. Many months passed by after the original video animation. The special episodes got released between September 18, 2015, and December 20, 2016. But after that, there has been no news of the future of the show.
Fans of the series got a major shock, ask me why? The creator of the manga series announced on Twitter something very serious. Mizuho Kusanagi had been badly affected by Kumamoto earthquakes, which struck the Kyushu region in Japan in April 2016, killing at least 50 people and injuring 3,000 more. Physically she did not get any injury but she was a lot affected mentally as her work suffered a major setback.
You need not worry because Mizuho Kusanagi is all set now. She has recovered luckily. The manga series is healthy now. New volumes are also published. The source material has no dearth for a second season. Fans should hence be relieved. So decent chances of renewal are there, if not the end of 2020, the next year! The international fans of the show were kept in mind and hence an English dub was made out of it.
