About the Author

Mitsurou Kubo (pen name for Mitsuko Kubo) was born in Sasebo, Nagasaki in 1975. She made her manga debut at the age of 21, partnering with authors or lyricists to adapt their work for a pair of women's anothologies. Her first original work, 3.3.7 premiered in the legendary Shonen Magazine (publishers of Fairy Tail and Negima) and ran for ten volumes. She followed that up with another Shonen Magazine series call Tokyuu; a twenty volume long series about an officer in the Japanese Coast Guard. While Tokyuu was her breakthrough, Moteki catapulted her into a new stratosphere. The series written for the men's magazine Evening was an instant multimillion unit seller and inspired a television drama and motion picture. Kubo's success would lead her having her own columns about writing and modern women in Japanese society. She has hosted a few weekly radio shows and is a regular television commentator. Ans she recently began writing screenplays for television including the award winning international sensation YURI on Ice!
