Sakuraba launched the ongoing Minami-ke manga in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine in 2004. Kodansha published the manga's 26th compiled book volume on June 6.

The manga inspired four television anime in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2013, as well as three OVAs in 2009, 2012, and 2013.

The franchise centers on the three sisters of the Minami household: Haruka, Kana, and Chiaki. They live an average life, but they only have each other to depend on.

Sakuraba's Kyo no Gononi manga similarly inspired an OVA in 2006 and a television anime in 2008, as well as a separate 2009 OVA.
