The first stage play adaptation, Katekyō Hitman Reborn! The Stage, ran in Tokyo at The Galaxy Theatre last September, and then in Osaka at the Mielparque Hall last October.

Viz Media released 16 volumes of the 42-volume manga in North America, and it describes the story:

When Reborn, a fedora-wearing, gun-toting toddler, arrives and says he's come to groom Tsuna for his future as boss of an Italian organized crime family, Tsuna is more than a little skeptical. But Reborn may have the "magic bullet" necessary to turn Tsuna's life around!

Amano launched Reborn! in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2004, and ended it in 2012. The manga's television anime adaptation ran from 2006 to 2010. Crunchyroll and Viz Media streamed the anime adaptation outside Japan. Discotek Media licensed the anime and released it on Blu-ray Disc last September and October.

The "Amano Akira Illustrations Exhibition" event presented a special collaboration mini anime video of Amano's Reborn! and ēlDLIVE manga when it opened in July 2016. The video featured the first anime footage of Reborn! in six years since the television anime ended in 2010.
