The Manga “Yona of the Dawn (aka Akatsuki no Yona)” was adapted into an anime in 2014 and is written by Mizuho Kusanagi. The manga was originally launched in 2009 and is published in Hana to Yume and is still going strong.
So far only one season of anime has been released and there are serious question marks over the season 2. Let’s take a look at Yona of the Dawn Season 2 release date and whether it will come out or not.
1. Akatsuki no Yona Season 2 Release Date
There has been no official announcement regarding the release date of the Season 2 of the anime. Akatsuki no Yona’s last episode was released in 2015 and since then, there has been no word on the new season from official sources.
Mizuho Kusanagi was very severely affected by the The 2016 Fukushima earthquake which derailed her work and also her life as a whole.
Some sources suggest that this has been the reason that the Season 2 hasn’t been released/announced yet. However, the content to be animated has already been made and Shinichi Inotsume, the writer of anime wasn’t affected that badly by the earthquake.

With that said, there is still a full year left until the anime gets completely canceled and the agony suffered by the fans will also come to an end with that.
