Kusanagi — the creator of Mugen Spiral, Game X Rush, and NG Life — launched the Yona of the Dawn manga in 2009. The 27th compiled volume shipped on August 20.

Viz Media licensed the manga, and it shipped the 13th volume in North America on August 7. The company describes the story: "A red-haired princess loses her family and her kingdom—now she must rise and fight for her throne!"

The series has also inspired a 24-episode anime and several original anime DVDs.
