The title piece also appeared in the first volume of Nagakubo Kaidan:  Kyoufu Mimibukuro (see below).  The Shueisha Home Remix edition apparently included several "true" text stories by Junji Inagawa (稲川淳二).  A sequel volume, Zoku Iki Ningyou Kanzenban, was also published by Home-Sha, but is presumed to be a ladies' title (see below).

Tongli (東立) released Iki Ningyou in Chinese as Huo Ling Wa Wa (活靈娃娃).

The Halloween releases included a variety of other stories (I currently have no information on which of these may appear in the wide-ban or bunko editions, or what volumes might contain them):

The series was made available electronically by Akita Shoten.

The Nara Onryou Emaki was also released by Asahi Sonorama as an audio cassette and a novel [text by Kei Rikudou (六道慧)].  A promotional animated movie based on this section of the story had a theatrical release in Tokyo before being released on video.  The Sendai Kokeshi Onka was similarly adapted into a six-part animated video series.

The original Karura Mau! comic series was translated into Chinese by Tongli (東立) under the title Tui Ling zhi Wu!* (退靈之舞!).

Both editions had a corresponding elecronic release from Akita Shoten.

V.3 of the original release was technically all Oumi & Kenmochi side stories of the Yami no Genjutsu Hikae (闇の幻術控) series:  Ise no Magagami (伊勢の禍神), Kai no Ishigami (甲斐の石神), Abe no Seimei no Matsuei Zenpen (安倍晴明の末裔  前編), and Abe no Seimei no Matsuei Kouhen (安倍晴明の末裔  後編).  But the Ougi girls did appear rather prominently in Kai no Ishigami, while even Oumi had no part in Abe no Seimei no Matsuei, a prequel story from Kenmochi’s childhood.

V.6 of the original release contained the side story Bangai Hen:  Haha Youkai (番外編  母妖怪), as well as a short comic review of the original Karura Mau! series, Shuku Honpen Rensai Saikai Kyouran Emaki (祝  本編連載再開狂乱絵巻).  V.7 of the same release also included Suneori Ryuujin Matsuri (脚折竜神祭り).

This Shin Karura Mau! series was translated into Chinese by Daran (大然) as Fei Tian Xiang Wu (飛天翔舞).

Story by a Buddhist monk and psychic whose name I can only attempt to transliterate as Sensui Souun* (仙翠蒼雲).  Reigen Kaii Shimatsu was advertised as a companion to Reigen Suhou Mandala*, see above.

Other Works:

An increasing number of Nagakubo’s comics are not girls’ horror.  The ladies’ horror comics Shintou Occult Zoushi (神道オカルト草子), Yami Saku Rindou (闇咲くりんどう), Nagakubo Kaiidan* (永久保怪異談), Nagakubo Kaiidan:  Spiritual o Kiru!* (永久保怪異談  スピリチュアルを斬る!), and Nagakubo Kaiidan:  Power Spot Kouyuuroku* (永久保怪異談  パワースポット交幽録) were all published by Bunkasha (ぶんか社).  Shintou Occult Zoushi was also released in a bunko-ban edition.  Two bunko-ban volumes related to some of the Bunkasha titles, Nagakubo Kaiidan* (永久保怪異談) and Nagakubo Kaiidan:  Shinrei Tanbou* (永久保怪異談  心霊探訪), were published by Home-Sha, a subsidiary of Shueisha, under Home-Sha Manga Bunko.

Bunkasha further published Okayama Onna (岡山女), illustrated by Nagakubo but written by Shimako Iwai (岩井志麻子), as well as the four-volume "true horror" comic series Nagakubo Kouyuuroku* (永久保交幽録).  Ikaruga Hyourei Kitan Guren (斑鳩憑霊奇譚  紅蓮) was first published by Home-Sha under Eyes Comics then rereleased by Bunkasha under Horror M Comic Bunko (ホラーMコミック文庫).  Zoku Iki Ningyou Kanzenban (続・ 生き人形  完全版), a sequel to Nagakubo's debut work, was published by Home-Sha under Home-Sha Manga Bunko.  Daitosha (大都社) published other ladies' titles, Iguchi Kiyomitsu no Shinrei Jikenbo (井口清満の心霊事件簿) 1-5, featuring stories by Kiyomitsu Iguchi (井口清満), and Nagakubo Takakazu no Fuujirareta Chikara (永久保貴一の  封じられた霊能力).  Nagakubo contributed to Kiseki no Spiritual Power Kyoui no Healer Asahi Taro:  Manga Makkigan mo Kokufuku!* (奇跡のスピリチュアル・ パワー驚異のヒーラー旭太郎  まんが末期がんも克服!) from Kaiohsha (海王社), a work most likley aimed at women.

Nagakubo has also released what I believe to be his only solo boys’ series, from Hakusensha (白泉社) under the Jets Comics label.  The series title is F/E/A/R, with two volumes named Kyoufu to Iu Na no Comic (恐怖という名のコミック) and Nagakubo Takakazu no Kiwamete Kowai Hanashi (永久保貴一の極めて怖い話).  Two bunko-ban editions also titled Nagakubo Takakazu no Kiwamete Kowai Hanashi have been published, one by Bunkasha and one by Home-Sha, but I am not certain of the contents of these volumes.

Nagakubo wrote the story for Tsuyoshi Masuda (増田剛)’s Mishakuji Otoshi (御石神落とし) 1-8 and Etchi no Kami-sama! (えっちの神さま!) 1-2, both published by Hakusensha under Jets Comics.  He also authored Sachiko Shirai (白井幸子)’s Kagami no Miko Ayaka (鏡の巫女  アヤカ) 1-5 and Kagami no Miko Ayaka:  Kuroi Bara Juuji* (鏡の巫女  アヤカ  黒い薔薇十字), published by Akita Shoten under Bonita Comics; and Butou Senjutsu Den:  Hiiro to Nanashi (武闘占術伝  ヒイロとナナシ), illustrated by Tatsuya Touji (とうじたつや) and published by Akita Shoten under Shounen Champion Comics (少年チャンピオン・コミックス).  Chouyaku Ise Monogatari:  Tsuki ya Aranu (超訳・ 伊勢物語  月やあらぬ) 1-2 was illustrated by Nao Kurebayashi (紅林直) and published by Houbunsha (芳文社).

Kodansha (講談社) released a convenience-store digest volume that appears to be aimed at women, Nagakubo Takakazu:  Yo ni mo Kowai Hanashi (永久保貴一  世にも怖い話), under Platina Comics (プラチナコミックス).  All of the included stories were written by Nagakubo, and he also did the art for three of them.  The remainder were drawn by Nyaoko Aoi (あおいにゃおこ), Juuji Fusa (ふさ十次) , Reku Fuyunagi (冬凪れく), Kengo Hattori (服部健吾), Jun Hayami (早見純), Akiko Hazuki (葉月秋子), Souzou Kishida (岸田宗三), Riri Suzukake* (すずかけりり), and THYME (鯛夢).
