I.O.N was Arina Tanemura's first official series with six chapters. It was published in Ribon from May to November 1997, and collected into a single volume by the publisher, Shueisha in December 1997. The manga was planned to be just three chapters at first. Tanemura's editor increased the number to six eventually.
Tanemura returned to the series in the Ribon Fantasy Zokan Go magazine with a one-shot in 2010. The manga was republished in bunkobon format in 2011, including the one-shot. The English edition of volume eight of Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura includes the short chapter also.
