OKAYADO wrote MaMaMa: Magical Director Mako-chan's Magical Guidance under the name Takemaru Inui in Kodansha's Magazine Special in 2010. Kodansha published the series in one compiled volume in 2011.
In the story, Mako excels in the world of magic, but she has a dislike of men and love. As her graduation test she is supposed to go to the human world, but there she accidentally makes a contract with Junji Onodera, a human who is a total pervert.
DNA Doesn't Tell Us ran in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine from November 2015 to December 2016 and Kodansha published the series in two compiled volumes.
The manga takes place in a world where animals suddenly took on the appearances of human girls. The girls, including former sheep Yōko, gather at a research and training facility where they learn about humans.
The story takes place in the demon realm, where all demons are accompanied by familiars. However, not-so-clever demon Pati does not have one, until she reluctantly chooses a human named Norman as her familiar.
Crisis Girls ran in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge from October 2015 to November 2016. Kodansha published the second compiled volume in December.
The action comedy manga takes place in a special city where monsters gather and super-cute "Crisis Girls" keep the peace. Crisis Girl Kaede can defeat enemies alongside her zombie puppets, but she just wants to play and act like a kid.
High-Rise Invasion launched on Kodansha's MangaBox app in 2014 and it is ongoing. Miura (Ajin: Demi-Human) draws the series based on Oba's story. Kodansha published the 12th compiled volume on May 9.
In the story, high school student Yuri suddenly finds herself on the top of a high-rise building, where she sees a man in a mask commit murder with an ax. Fleeing from the masked man, Yuri searches for a way out of the building.
