File:Omamori Himari cover.jpg

The following is a list of chapters for the manga series Omamori Himari written and illustrated by Milan Matra. The manga revolves around a boy named Yuto Amakawa, who, on the day of his sixteenth birthday, meets Himari, a demon spirit in the form of a beautiful young girl. He soon learns from her that he is a descendant of a Demon Slayer family that had slain Ayakashi for hundreds of years and that numerous demons are out to kill him because of it, and that it is Himari's duty to protect him until his powers awaken.

The manga began serialization in the May 2006 issue of Fujimi Shobo's manga magazine Monthly Dragon Age and the first tankōbon was released by Kadokawa Shoten on February 1, 2007. In Taiwan, a Chinese translation of the manga is sold by one of Kadokawa Shoten's subsidiary companies, Kadokawa Media[1]. So far, as of Januray 7, 2010, 6 volumes of the manga, including an official guidebook (sold as Volume 0), have been released in Japan. An anime adaptation was announced on the fifth volume of the manga. It was created by animation studio Zexcs and aired on Teletama, Chiba TV and other networks for 12 episodes from January 6 to March 24, 2010.

The manga has been licensed by Yen Press and it has been schedueled for releases in North America starting in October 2010. It was originally schedueled for June, but it was pushed back to October for other manga releases[2]. A four-panel comic strip spinoff called Omamori Himari: Himari no Opanchu (緋鞠のおぱんちゅ?) began serialization in the November 2009 issue of Monthly Dragon Age[3]. These were later collected into a book called Omamori Himari 1/4: Himari's 4-Koma Anthology (おまもりひまり1/4 緋鞠の4こまあんそろじぃ?), released on April 9, 2010[4].
