TAMURA Yumi, creator of the extremely popular fantasy series, BASARA, taken in December, '95, at the year-end party of Bessatsu Shôjo Comic, a popular shôjo manga magazine. Well, I never got a chance to actually talk to Tamura...I just sat at the table next to hers and shamelessly took pictures of her. ^^;;; Incidentally, she is drawing an autograph for a rookie manga artist (still in high school!) who is also under the Bessatsu Shôjo Comic umbrella.

7Seeds is my absolute favorite manga right now. Hana is so...^^ Just... Yeah. Love. It.

For me artwork did take some time to get used to, to the point of dropping 7Seeds once. But afterwards it felt amazing.
What I like and respect in this author the most though, is her exquisite taste in music!!! Both the classical pieces and the modern ones. That moment in 7 Seeds, where Haru played "Bridge over troubled water" left me awestruck till this very moment.

I'm reading 7 Seeds and absolutely love it! Both the story and the art are very emotional. I'd like to read some of her other stuff but I'm not really sure where to start...

Definitely one of the greatest mangakas I've ever seen. Deep and meaningful stories, relatable characters, good art... really needs more recognition.
