Hakusensha has opened pre-orders for the 21st and 22nd volumes of the shoujo fantasy manga Akatsuki no Yona, both containing new OVA episodes which will adapt the story of the 18th volume about Zeno.

Volume 21 of the manga is scheduled to be released on August 19, with pre-orders being taken through June 29. Volume 22 is scheduled to be released on December 20, with pre-orders being taken through October 31.

Akatsuki no Yona was previously adapted into a 24-episode TV anime in 2014. An OVA episode was also released with the manga's 19th volume. Kazuhiro Yoneda returns to direct the new OVAs at Studio Pierrot, with the cast members also returning.

I'm interested in the content this time, so I will watch it (Noticing that next Kamisama Hajimemashita OVA is releasing on the same day as first OVA of Akatsuki no Yona OVA).

I've been waiting for this!

Hopefully this OVa would focus on Zeno, since the anime didn't tell much about him

...also I can hardly wait for Hak to make me laugh again

YES! FINALLY WE GET TO SEE MORE ZENO.

Tbh I felt like he was left out too much in the anime but considering he appeared only at the final episode it left me sour a bit. But Aye!

I'd much rather prefer a 2nd season, but I suppose this is better than nothing.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Finally, hopefully s2 news soon.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

The part they're going to adapt is one of the best parts of the manga if you ask me.

I can't wait to see Zeno's story animated.

My favourite


This is probably one of the best shoujo manga I have ever read. I am not kidding. Those who stopped at the anime should know that the contents following from where the anime ended are probably ten times better.

The shoujo elements of romance is almost non-existent which is the only thing fans complain about but what really makes Akatsuki no Yona such a great manga is the way it deals with internal conflict of the characters, the political scenario they are thrown at, the struggles they have to go though towards reaching their goals. This is a true masterpiece so an OVA sounds great but I hope they make a sequel because people just don't realize what they are missing out.

The battle for Kuuto, for an example, is one of the most strategically written battle plots in any medium, be it manga, novel or any other literature; even though Kusanagi Mizuho-sensei admitted some ideas were directly taken from old Chinese historical battles but the execution in the manga was A+ tier. And that doesn't even say much about the story because of the political complexity the manga has achieved to throw at us, the fans.

Okay. Enough of my random appreciation. Glad that we have an OVA but I would love to see an actual TV sequel sometime in the future but seeing how it miserably failed in BD/DVD sales, I am not too hopeful.

Being the only good thing Pierrot have ever done, I am still hoping for a 2nd season but I'm not going to reject an OVA.

It sold terribly so I wouldn't count on another TV series. It would be nice though.

If they are going to adapt THAT chapter in an OVA then that's the best option in TV it would had been censured so much...

So happy for an OVA. Loved the first season and that first season even got me into the manga which I also enjoy. Hope they give it a worthy adaption.

I am still holding on for a season two you never know, I didn't think they would do a second season of noragami but they did so here's hoping.

Akatsuki no Yona = Pierrot
Noragami = Bones.
How it's related?

Wasn't really referring to the studios but I was just saying that an anime can go on a long break and then suddenly bring out a second season.

I know release times vary from studio to studio but hopefully the case is similar

The whole volume 18, or starting from chapter 101...because going in on chapter 100 would towards the end of something, but chapter 101-105 would be his full back story. Either way, I'm so happy about the news. I saw it yesterday on ANN and my heart was pounding from excitement, it's the best backstory and I want to say how I felt about it, but it would be a minor spoiler I guess.

At the same time, it's sort of a bittersweet announcement, because now it really seems like all hopes (if there were any to being with) of a second season just got wiped away. Zeno's backstory would fit best within the story, so if his arc is adapted into an OVA, then it most likely means that they aren't ever planning for a sequel. I hope to be wrong of course, but yeah, the sales :( I guess they could still just reuse footage from the OVA and incorporate it into the story if there's ever going to be second season.

I agree with shanimebib that's it's one of the best shoujo manga out there, although I don't like to compare with just demographic, so I'd say best historical-fantasy shoujo manga. But yeah, I think Kusanagi does a very good job in planning and pacing, and especially in character development (not just talking about Yona, but a certain other character).

Still really looking forward to the Zeno's arc being adapted, it's definitely better than nothing. He's one of my favorite characters in the manga.

I guess this is the final nail in the coffin when it comes to season 2 :(. It's so saddening that the anime sold terribly because it was really good and had fantastic production values. Oh well, I'm definitely not going to say no to more Akatsuki no Yona.

Even if it's just for a couple of episodes, i'm still glad that more AnY anime is being produced. Zeno's backstory was INCREDIBLE & one of the best arcs of the manga!

So pumped that more Yona is coming. Although a Second Season is at the top of my wishlist, I wouldn't mind if they hurried along the official English translation of the manga as well.

I can't help but feel like this just confirms there will be no sequel to the Akatsuki no Yona anime, or at the very least, no adaptions beyond that point. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy the Zeno arc is being animated and I'm hyped for it, but it really was something that you should NOT leave out of the main story, considering the high importance of the arc.

Oh my gosh anime sequel please! This is still a fantastic news regardless, more Akatsuki no Yona can not be wrong!

Time to read the manga I guess. I wouldn't want to be potentially spoiled by any prior content that was not in the anime but will be included in the OVA about Zeno.

So much for a second series...Wish the series had just made up it's own ending instead of following the pitfall of "and so the adventure continues now go read the manga." For all the fans of Attack on Titan that were pissed about the Jr. High filler anime be glad you at least are getting a second series.

I really hope they make the S2 of Akatsuki no Yona after the OVA. Its a darn good anime, I don't get why many good anime don't do well in Japan.

I'm so ready for this, Zeno's past is the best of them all for sure! I'm hoping this means we will get to see a 2nd season at some point.

Of course I'M happy that we're going to see Zeno's beautiful (and incredibly sad) backstory.
But on the other side it probably means that we're not getting a second season :/ So, so sad, because AnY is definitely one of the best shoujo series ever :(

OMG!! Yes I'm so happy ! I'll get to see Zeno's amazing (but really really sad) past. Zeno's backstory was the best of all of them. But I feel like there will be no season 2...since they are showing something like this. I was really waiting for a S2 too ;__;

But I'm definitely watching this!! So excited XD

Wait, if this OVA is adapting an actual volume and not a side-story, does that mean the anime won't be coming back? If so, that's a straight-up crime.

That being said, yay! Can't wait.
