Last Updated

One of the 24-gumi, a group of female artists that pioneered the shoujo genre. She was one of the most popular Japanese comic-artists in the 1970s, being best known for The Rose of Versailles, but gave up drawing manga to pursue a musical career. She qualified in singing at the Music Academy and embarked on a new and successful career as soprano, releasing two albums and taking part in a number of international tours. She made a comeback to the comic-industry as a scenarist in 1999. Her use of foreign settings and androgynous themes made Rose of Versailles and Mado no Orpheus "enormous successes".

In 2009 she received France's Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur.
