Comments
One of the 24-Gumi. She helped pioneer both modern shoujo manga and modern science fiction manga.

Moto Hagio made her professional debut in 1969 at the age of 20 with her short story "Lulu to Mimi" in Nakayoshi. Later, for Shogakukan Publishing, she produced a series of short stories for various magazines. Two years after her debut, she published Juichigatsu no Gimunajiumu (The November Gymnasium), a short story which dealt openly with love between two boys at a boarding school. The story was part of a larger movement by female manga artists at the time which pioneered a genre of girls' comics about love between young men. In 1974, Hagio developed this story into the longer Toma no Shinzo (The Heart of Thomas). She was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1976 for her science fiction classic Juichinin Iru! (They Were Eleven) and her epic tale Poe no Ichizoku (The Poe Family).

Rachel Matt Thorn has put up an interview with her in '95 on Thorn's website. Another translated interview with Hagio Moto conducted in 1996 can be read here. SF Online Interview with Hagio Moto has also been translated.
