"Night of the Crescent Moon" was published as "Mikazuki no Yoru: Crescent Moon" in Margaret No.1 on December 5, 2003. Yoko Kamio has stated that she "had been thinking about doing this story about Akira for a long time." The story also would have been the last of Boys Over Flowers, if Kamio had not published another chapter in July 2006.
Kamio later went on to say that she made Akira the main character of the chapter "because [she] felt [she] hadn't done a good job of fleshing him out." After writing "Crescent Moon", Kamio received letters from readers "telling [her] that they had come to like Akira", which "made [her] so happy".
- On January 21, 2018, the story was published on Shonen Jump+ instead of a new chapter of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.
