Sakurakoji ended her three-volume Last Notes manga in June 2014, after launching the manga in 2013.
Sakurakoji is best known for her supernatural romance manga Black Bird, which also ran in Betsucomi and ended in December 2012. Viz Media published the manga in North America. Viz Media also published Sakurakoji's two-volume Backstage Prince manga in North America.
