Amano, alongside the author of the manga, Nomura Tetsuya, finally finished the serialization of their Kingdom Hearts II in May.
Amano has created manga adaptations for Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days games. North American publisher Tokyopop released all four volumes of Kingdom Hearts, both volumes of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and two volumes of Kingdom Hearts II before the company shut down its North American publishing division in 2011.
