The wraparound jacket on the 17th volume of Mizuho Kusanagi's Akatsuki no Yona manga revealed on Friday that the manga is getting an original anime DVD. Future issues of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine — where Kusanagi publishes the manga — will reveal more details about the release of the DVD and the contents of the anime.

Mizuho Kusanagi, the creator of Mugen Spiral, Game X Rush, and NG Life, launched the Akatsuki no Yona manga in 2009. The ninth and 15th manga volumes bundled drama CD adaptations.

The 24-episode television anime adaptation of the manga will end next week. Crunchyroll and Funimation are both streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

Funimation describes the story:

Upon her sixteenth birthday, the cheerful Princess Yona intended to tell her doting father of her love for SuWon, but her life was turned upside down after witnessing the man she loves cruelly assassinating her father. Heartbroken by this painful betrayal, Princess Yona fled the palace with her loyal servant Hak. Now, she will take up the sword and the bow on a quest to gain new allies and protect her beloved people

Funimation premiered the English dub of the series on Tuesday. The dub will begin with the second season, but Funimation is dubbing the first season as well and plans to release it later.
