About the Author
Arina Tanemura began her manga career in 1996 at the early age of 18, when her short stories debuted in "Ribon" magazine. Tanemura gained notoriety with the 1997 publication of "I-O-N," a high school romance with a supernatural twist. From 1998 to 2000, she worked on the popular series "Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne," about a young girl who is the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, followed by "Time Stranger Kyoko" in 2000-2001 and "Full Moon o Sagashite" in 2002. Despite Tanemura's intentions to draw in a style that makes her stories difficult to animate, both "Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne" and "Full Moon o Sagashite" have been adapted into TV series.
