The unthinkable has happened--murder in the city of Akiba. The Libra Festival's events have left Akatsuki dispirited. Despairing and confused, she wanders the city in search of the murderer and a chance to gain the power and recognition she craves--but feelings alone will not be enough. A new chapter in the Log Horizon epic begins!

Popularity Poll Results

A mail-in popularity poll was released in a previous volume. Hara Kazuhiro created special illustrations for the top 5 winners: Akatsuki, Shiroe, Nyanta, Minori, and Rundelhaus. The images were incorporated into an illustration featured as a color spread in this volume, and wallpapers of each character were released on Mamare's now-defunct official site,

Alternate Titles

  • French: Les enfants perdus de l'aube


  • The title of this volume is a pun on Akatsuki's name. Akatsuki's name (アカツキ) is pronounced the same way as 暁, which is one word that means "dawn." Another word that also means dawn is 夜明け (yoake), which is used in the title.

The profile previews for the next volume

  • The next-volume preview (only present in Japanese versions of the novel) included sketches of what was likely planned to be the next batch of profile spreads: Naotsugu, Shiroe, Kinjo, William Massachusetts, and Demiqas. However, between the preview and the final publication, Naotsugu, Shiroe, William, and Demiqas' poses and equipment were changed, while Kinjo was completely replaced by Tetora.
  • In the end of the previous volume, Yen On's given title for this volume was Lost Child of Dawn. The final title, used on the cover of the volume, was Lost Child of the Dawn.
  • Differences between the Japanese version and Yen On's version:
    • In the character introduction page, the Japanese version's "Maryele" was changed to "Marielle," which has been consistently used in the English translation. In the previous volume, Yen On left the introduction page's use of "Maryele" intact but opted to stick with their use "Marielle" elsewhere.
    • The kerning in Akatsuki, Henrietta, and Rayneshia's names were widened to match the spacing in "Marielle," but Minori and Shiroe's names were left unchanged.
    • Because the profiles in Chapters 3-5 used a template directly copied from the previous volume, Mikakage, Rieze, and Rayneshia have 78, 90, and 14 listed as their ages rather than their levels.
    • This volume went back to leaving out the next-volume preview.
  • The French version, as an omnibus publication (publishes two volumes together as one), uses the title and cover of volume 6 rather than volume 5, breaking the pattern established by the previous two books that used the covers and titles of the first included volume.
