1. A method for manufacturing a cartridge including a rotating body, a blade that extends in an axial direction of the rotating body and is contacted to the rotating body, a supporting member that is fixed to the blade and configured to support the blade in such a manner that the blade protrudes toward the rotating body in a shorter direction crossing the axial direction, and a frame that is configured to support the supporting member, the method comprising:
a first step of disposing the supporting member onto the frame; and
a second step of forming a deformed portion by irradiating laser beam to the frame after the first step, so that the frame is deformed, and engaging the deformed portion with the supporting member so that movement of the supporting member with respect to the frame is restricted.
