Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 information:
Yona of the Dawn season 1, consisting of 24 episodes, premiered on October 7, 2014, and ran till March 24, 2015. Around three months later, three special episodes had been released.
But that was it. Ever since then, we received no news about the anime show officially, from the creators of Yona Of The Dawn. Know about Yona Of The Dawn Season 2 below:
Our hearts sank, when the creator of the manga series, Mizuho Kusanagi, announced on Twitter that she had been badly affected by the Kumamoto earthquakes, which struck the Kyushu region in Japan in April 2016, killing at least 50 people and injuring 3,000 more. But to all our relief, she personally had not been hurt by the earthquake although her work did receive a major setback because of this natural calamity. But again, soon enough she started with her manga series, and to this day, new volumes of the manga are being published. Thus, this does provide us with the assurance that there is no lack of material if the creators of the anime series ever decide to go on with the idea of Yona Of The Dawn Season 2.
Moreover, very often anime seasons are produced after quite some time ( we are talking about quite a few years). So it is no surprise that the same might have happened in the case of Yona Of The Dawn Season 2. Thus as for now, there is no reason to panic or reach any conclusions as of yet. We can wait for this year to end, or 2022. In case, we receive no news at all by then, then probably the future of the show might be looking a little bleak and uncertain.
Plotline Of Yona Of The Dawn
Yona Of The Dawn has a very interesting storyline. It follows the tale of a royal princess, Yona, and the character transformations she goes through – from a rich, spoiled girl to a warrior all ready on the battlefield.
Yona was the only child of pacifistic King II. She belongs to the sky tribe descent and has rare red hair and violet eyes. She is the reincarnation of the Crimson Dragon King ( which is why later, the four legendary dragon Gods will swear to protect her and be on her side). According to the King, Yona’s mother was killed by insurgents when she was a six-year-old kid.
Yona had a perfectly splendid, peaceful life with not worry in the world. She had everything she required, and she was extremely dependent and spoiled, although very kind. She was never allowed to touch a weapon or made aware of any political issues. She was highly pampered and her father kept her war away from the troubles of the outside real world.
She spent her childhood days with her friends Hak and Soo-Won. From an early age, she had romantic feelings for Soo-Won but her father forbade her from marrying him.
Yona’s life was smooth and almost perfect, until one day her most trusted cousin, Soo Woon betrayed her trust by staging a conspiracy and murdering her father- the King of the Kouka Kingdom in cold blood, in the darkness of the night, in an attempt to avenge the death of his own father. Yona witnesses the whole crime, as a result, Soo Woon and his men try to kill her too, but one of their servants sacrifices his life and helps Yona along with her bodyguard, Hak, to escape. At that moment, they had no other choice left but to flee.
The regime was usurped. Yona and her bodyguard fled to the Wind tribe. But instead of hiding among the Wind Tribe, they continue on their journey to find the four legendary dragons, to seek aid to restore her lost pride and her throne.
Reflecting on the events of the past, Yona learns archery and sword fighting and decides to transform herself into a warrior princess and she does so so that she can come back one day, and not only take her revenge but also bring back the lost glory of her kingdom. The spoilt princess is no more, what comes out is an image of a strong warrior princess all ready for the battlefield. What will be the future of the princess?
