Despite so many petitions and huge viewer’s demands, the creators of the show Akatsuki no Yona, also known as Yona of the dawn, are not ready to announce the official release date of season 2. Ever since the show went off-air in 2015, the viewers are anxious to know if Yona won her kingdom back.
The only problem is that there is no official announcement on Twitter or media about season 2 of the show, and after six years, it’s hard to predict if it will ever come.
Akatsuki No Yona Season 2- Release Date
Akatsuki no Yona is a popular Japanese anime based on the manga by Mizuho Kusanagi. The show’s debut season showed its presence on the television screens in 2014 and went off the air in 2015. In the span of one year, the show created 24 long episodes and three original video animations (OVAs), which came along in 2016, but since then, there is no news or any presence of the show on our television screens.
The first season of the show covered the first eight volumes of the manga, and the OVA was covered till volume 8. So, now it would be interesting to see season 2 following from volume 9.
The producer has not yet released the official date of the show, but we are still hopeful for the year 2021 or 2022 to be the year of Akatsuki no Yona season 2.
Plot: Akatsuki no Yona Season 2
The show’s plot revolves around a beautiful red-haired princess of Kouka and the daughter of Pacifist king II. The show is specifically targeted at female viewers and sends the message that She Can Be Powerful If She Wants.
The beautiful red-haired princess Yona falls in love with the son of his father’s brother Su-won (who doesn’t love her back). She, however, was forbidden to marry him for some reason. As she was not aware that her kingdom was about to experience violent consequences by Su-won, she elopes with her friend Son Hak as she learns the bitter truth of her kingdom.
The show takes an interesting turn when the delicate princess turns out to be proactive and go from being a young lady to a powerful soul for her companions.
The show tells how a girl can turn the world upside down if someone tries to harm her loved ones.
Learning that her kingdom is on the verge of being destroyed, Yona runs away to search for the legendary four dragon warriors to win her father’s kingdom back. This gets her into adventures that involve pirates, human trafficking, and more. The show is full of thrill, enjoyment, and excitement.
In season 2, we can expect Yona to return to the kingdom Kokua and deliver the retribution. We are also expecting Yona to win her kingdom back and be the kingdom’s princess as she deserves.
In season 1, we discovered that Yona got some information regarding the mythical beasts and met with the four wing serpents.
Now it would be interesting to find out her journey of winning the kingdom back. As there is no official announcement regarding the plot of season 2 or the release date, we cannot guess the possible story, but we will soon provide you with the spoilers of season 2.
