A new chapter in the Log Horizon epic begins!

  • 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 has that same meaning is 夜明け (yoake), which is used in the title.
  • 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 in Yen On's version:
    • In the character introductions, the Japanese version's "Maryelle" was changed to "Marielle," which has been consistently used in the English translation.
    • 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 directly used the templates from the previous volume, the "Level" parameter was not changed from "Age." As a result, Mikakage, Rieze, and Rayneshia's profiles claim that their ages are 78, 90, and 14 even though Mikakage is only in culinary school, Rieze states she is in high school this volume, and Rayneshia was established to be 15 years old in volume 3.
    • This volume went back to leaving out the next-volume preview. However, the preview just used this volume's colored illustration with the title of the next volume and the release date. It also included sketches of what was likely planned to be the next volume's profiles (Naotsugu, Shiroe, Kinjo, William Massachusetts, and Demiqas.) However, between volume 7's preview and its publication, Naotsugu, Shiroe, William, and Demiqas' poses and equipment were changed, while Kinjo was completely replaced by with Tetora.
  • The French version, as an omnibus publication (publishes two volumes together as one), uses the title and cover of volume 6, breaking the pattern established by the previous two books that used the covers and titles of the first included volume.
