The Kingdom Hearts II manga is the third series of the Kingdom Hearts manga. It was based on Kingdom Hearts II.

The series has had an irregular release pattern due to Amano working on the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days manga, resulting in it being postponed for several years. In Japan, the series was serialized in Monthly Shōnen Gangan, spanning a total of ten volumes, with the last issue being released on August 22, 2015. The Tokyopop version only translated volumes one and two before losing the rights to the manga. However, between 2013 and 2017, Yen Press reissued the whole manga into four volumes.

Kingdom Hearts II seems to take a more serious tone than Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, but still has some humorous scenes.

The front cover of the Tokyopop and Yen Press first volume shows Roxas and a sleeping Sora floating in what appears to be a scene from Roxas's awakening during his Dive to the Heart. The second Tokyopop cover features Sora, Donald, Goofy, Naminé, Hayner, Pence, Olette, Roxas, Axel, DiZ, an unknown hooded figure, and several members of Organization XIII; with an image of Hollow Bastion in the background. The second Yen Press volume shows Sora, Donald, and Goofy in front of Beast's Castle and The Land of Dragons. The third volume shows Sora, Donald, Goofy, and King Mickey fighting Shadow Heartless with Kairi holding Pluto in the background.
