Margaret-1992

Margaret No.8 - March 1992, containing Chapter 1

Boys Over Flowers is a manga written and illustrated by Yoko Kamio. Shueisha published it in their magazine Margaret from March 1992 to August 2003,[1][2] collecting the series into thirty-six volumes. Viz Media bought the licensing rights to manga in 2003 for North America.[3] The manga was reprinted in Japan into a "Complete Edition" (kanzenban format) throughout 2005 and 2006.[1]

Yoko Kamio returned to the series briefly with the story, "Night of the Crescent Moon" in December 2003.[1] She was commissioned to write a one-chapter sequel in July 2006, followed by two-part story in early 2008.[4] The three stories were published as volume thirty-seven on June 25, 2008.[5] Viz published the volume with the subtitle, "Jewelry Box".

On February 15, 2015, Kamio began a sequel, titled Boys Over Flowers Season 2. The series was released online on Shonen Jump+ and Viz published the chapters simultaneously in English.[6] In December 2016, she began a spin-off webcomic Cafe de Hanadan, which she published sporadically on the Hana Yori Dango app.[7] Kamio penned a special chapter for Margaret's 2000th issue in 2018.[8]
