    An original animation DVD (OAD) has been announced for the hit adventure anime, Yona of the Dawn (Akatsuki no Yona) and will feature two new stories not found in the anime’s run.


    According to the announcement by Hana to Yume magazine’s official website, the new OAD will be coming bundled with the 19th volume of Mizuho Kusanagi’s popular manga series.
