For the last five years, fans have been asking only one question, “When Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 will be finally renewed?” Fortunately, now is the most suitable time. The Akatsuki no Yona manga series is back on track again, which brightens the future of its anime adaptation. What will be the plot of the new season? When will it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about your favorite anime.
Yona Of The Dawn is a well-appreciated manga series written and illustrated by talented artist Mizuho Kusanagi. It began serialization back in August 2009 and has been in the run ever since. In the last decade, the series has received constant love and supports from its readers alongside some terrific reviews. Hence, its popularity led to the story being picked up for an anime adaptation.
Back in October 2014, Studio Pierrot released the first episode of the anime around Japan. The series completed its air by March 2015, whereas Funimation began streaming it in North America. After three OVA episodes in 2015 and 2016, the studio has not released any latest Yona Of The Dawn content.
Yona Of The Dawn Season 2: Renewal Updates!
For almost half a decade now, fans have been waiting for Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 renewal. Yet, Studio Pierrot or any other producers have not given away anything substantial about the show’s future. However, one of the main reasons behind the same was April 2016’s Kumamoto earthquakes. The tragic event took the lives of at least 50 people, whereas around 3,000 were injured.
Sadly, YOTD’s mangaka Mizuho Kusanagi was one of the injured victims and took a while to recover after the heartbreaking incident. Through some tweets, she informed her fans that the incident would become a major setback to the continuation of her work. This affected the manga’s run and also created uncertainty for its future and the anime alike. Fans speculate that this could be the reason why no Yona Of The Dawn anime project was released for so long.
However, fortunately, the author soon recovered and has been publishing her manga volumes on time. In fact, some of her latest works are receiving much appreciation from fans and critics alike. Henceforth, this is the peak time for Akatsuki no Yona’s return. Having said that, speculations suggest that the renewal of Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 can arrive anytime now. Don’t worry, we’ll be the first one to inform you about the same. Keep an eye on this corner for all future YOTD updates.
Is There Enough Source Material For A New Season?
What will be the plot of Yona Of The Dawn Season 2?
One major thing that threatens the future of Akatsuki no Yona is the amount of source material left for adaptation. Luckily, in that matter, the future of all upcoming seasons of YOTD is secure. The original manga has run for a total of 33 tankōbon volumes today (Volume 34 is set to come out on December 18, 2020). As of now, the series is still in the run and might not end anytime soon.
Studio Pierrot anime series debuted with 24 episodes, which covered the first eight volumes of the manga. Thereby, Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 will likely adapt the next eight. This leaves plenty of content for the anime’s future installments.
As per the plot of Volume 9, Zeno, the Yellow Dragon, will be joining Yona’s party. Finally, now the Four Dragons have assembled. They are now headed to Yun’s birthplace in the land of the Fire Tribe, where citizens have to famine and are forced into poverty by heavy taxes. Hence, our leading lady and her friends will try to protect the town and its people from the oppressive government officials.
Yona Of The Dawn Season 2: Release Date
As of now, the official renewal of Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 is yet to arrive. However, it is suspected to be announced sometime soon. If the green flag comes in 2021, the release date of the sequel might fall sometime around early to mid 2022.
