Akatsuki no Yona (暁のヨナ Yona of the Dawn?) is a manga series written and illustrated by Kusanagi Mizuho. It follows the story of a 16-year old, red-haired girl named Yona.

Once upon a time, 2,000 years ago the Kingdom of Kouka was founded and ruled by a red dragon who came down to Earth from the Heavens changed into a human by the name of Hiryuu. By his side, four warriors imbued with dragon blood from the Gods who helped him lead the kingdom to prosperity. Time passed, and this tale became a legend to tell children.

2,000 years later, the kingdom had no male heirs but a sole princess named Yona who lived a life of lavish ease. In love with her cousin, Soo-Won, and protected by her bodyguard, Son Hak, she had everything she ever wanted and was sheltered from the harrowing reality outside the castle walls. Contrary to this peaceful illusion, Kouka went through an undergo a political upheaval from within the kingdom. After her beloved Su-won staged a bloody coup and murdered her father, Yona was forced to flee with only Hak by her side and started to live a life on the run.

Though surrounded by enemies on all sides, the banished princess still yearns to save her kingdom. Her solution comes from an exiled priest, who tells her that her only hope is to find the four legendary dragon warriors. Guided by this seemingly fictitious myth, Yona sets out to find these warriors, determined to fight for the throne, and restore the kingdom while making new friends and allies along the way.
