A manga of Devil Hunter Yohko was created by Gaku Miyao, the original illustrator of the OVA series, published by Young King Comics in 1996. This story is wildly different from the OVA series by miles, more in tune with the original vision. Yohko now lives alone by herself in an apartment selling newspapers by early morning. Her parents were killed in a car accident and her grandmother is nowhere to be found. She still goes to school with her friend Chi.
This manga has examples of:
- Adapted Out: Yohko's grandmother Madoka or Azusa are nowhere to be seen in this alternate universe.
- Bittersweet Ending: Let's just say that the demon dog offs himself after the final battle with Yohko, and Yohko is back being a normal school girl as she can be. Also, she finds a kitten in a box near the subway station and gives it to the boy and his family who lost their pet earlier in the manga.
- Chaste Hero: Yohko Mano of all people. No thinking of boys while you're working to live in an apartment and going to school at the same time, as well as fighting the demon that is the new pet dog you rescued while on your newspaper route.
- My Parents Are Dead: Yohko lives alone in an apartment, her parents killed in a car accident.
