This year's April issue of Kadokawa's Comic Beam magazine published the final chapter of Rei Mikamoto's Chimamire Sukeban Chainsaw manga on Saturday. Kadokawa will publish the manga's 13th and final compiled book volume on March 25.

Dark Horse Comics published the first six volumes of Mikamoto's Reiko the Zombie Shop manga in North America. Reiko the Zombie Shop was adapted into a three-part live-action video series in 2004. Mikamoto's Kyonyū Dragon manga was also adaptated into a live-action movie in 2010. Funimation released the film in North America in 2011.
