Manga author Masaki Segawa wrote a manga adaptation of the original Koga Ninpochou under the title Basilisk: The Kouga Ninja Scrolls (Basilisk; Kouga Nippouchou) in Young Magazine. The manga has 5 volumes and has sold over 1.7 million copies. A TV anime was aired in 2005 that is still popular today.
