Mizuho Kusanagi’s Yona of the Dawn (Akatsuki no Yona) is a Japanese fantasy manga; it has been serialized in Hakusensha’s shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume since August 2009. Volume 1 contains the first five issues.
Fortune has smiled on Princess Yona. Her father is King Il of the kingdom of Kouka. Yona is pretty, pampered, and carefully isolated from anything that could upset her. Nonetheless, being human, she has vexations: her bodyguard Hak is disrespectful and snarky, and her dreamy cousin Su-Won sees her only as a girl and not as a woman.
