JIN's Kagerou Project began as a Vocaloid song series that JIN wrote and composed in 2011. JIN launched the Kagerou Daze light novel series in May 2012, with illustrations by Sidu. Kadokawa published the eight and final volume on December 29.
Satou launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine in June 2012.
The series inspired a 12-episode television anime adaptation titled Mekakucity Actors in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. A short anime film titled MX4D Kagerou Daze -in a days- opened in Japan in November 2016. Sidu, the illustrator of the novels and music videos, made her directorial debut with the film.
