posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Comic Japan published the final chapter of Narumi Kakinouchi's (Vampire Miyu, Ryoko's Case File) Fairy Jewel manga on Thursday.
The romantic fantasy revolves around a fairy named Matama who loves a human. Matama aims to earn 100 points in the Fairy Exam to assume the human form. Kakinouchi launched the manga in November 2011. ASCII Media Works published the first compiled book volume in May.
Toshiki Hirano and Kakinouchi ended their Vampire Miyu spinoff Vampire Princess last year. The anime studio AIC released four episodes of the Vampire Princess Miyu video anime from 1988 to 1989, and AnimEigo began releasing the anime in North America in 1995. Akita Shoten published five volumes of the New Vampire Miyu manga from 1992 to 1994 and released ten volumes of the separate Vampire Princess Miyu manga beginning in 1999. A Vampire Princess Miyu television remake of the video anime, directed by Hirano, aired in Japan from 1997 to 1998 and Tokyopop distributed the series in North America from 2001 to 2002.
Kakinouchi also illustrated Yoshiki Tanaka's Yakushiji Ryōko no Kaiki Jikenbo (Ryoko's Case File) novel series and manga adaptation, and the story inspired a television anime series in 2008.
