    Amano originally launched his Kingdom Hearts II manga in 2006, but put it on hiatus to work on his adaptation of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. He resumed his work on Kingdom Hearts II in 2012, and Square Enix published the ninth volume earlier this month.

     

    Amano has also worked on manga adaptations of other Kingdom Hearts games, which were published in North America by Tokyopop prior to shutting down. The rights for these adaptations were then taken over by Yen Press in 2013.
