Super Mario-kun (スーパーマリオくん Sūpā Mario-kun?) is a Japanese kodomo manga series written and illustrated by Yukio Sawada and serialized in the monthly manga anthology CoroCoro Comic. Individual chapters are collected into tankōbon volumes by Shogakukan, who released the first volume on July 27, 1991,[1] and have released 48 volumes as of September 26, 2014.[2] The series has only been licensed in Japan and France, published by Soleil Manga.[3] It follows Mario and his friends through the plot lines of many Mario video games, starting in Super Mario World and reaching as far as New Super Mario Bros. U.

There is another manga series which ran for five volumes with exactly the same title, written and drawn by Hiroshi Takase (嵩瀬ひろし), also published by Shogakukan but serialized in Pikkapika Comics. Because of the identical titles, Sawada's and Takase's series are easily confused.[4]
