At the end of the Sino-Japanese War, Chiba's family lived in the attic of a work-acquaintance of his father until they could find a way to get back to Japan. In 1956 while still in high school, Chiba wrote Fukushuu no Semushi Otoko for a publisher that produced rental books and was paid ¥12,315. In 1958, he made his professional debut in Shoujo Book with Butoukai no Shōjo. In the 60s, he wrote shounen and shoujo manga at the same time. He won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1977. Won the Kodansha 100th Anniversary Commemoration special prize in 2009.

One of his younger brothers is award-winning mangaka CHIBA Akio, who committed suicide in late 1984 (at age 41) due to issues related to manic depression.
