Raised in Japan's Hyogo Prefecture, Yazawa grew up with ambitions to become a fashion designer, and as a youth enrolled in the Osaka Mode Academy, one of Japan's most competitive fashion schools.

In 1985, Yazawa made her manga debut in the pages of the monthly girl's anthology RIBON with the title 15th Year. While her tales focused on young love, but what captivated readers was her stunning sense of design. Since then she has gone to pen eleven more titles and has sold more than 100,000,000 books in Japan alone. Her title NANA was an international sensation, spinning off multiple movies, animated TV series, was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2002, and even inspiring talents such as Gwen Stefani. Paradise Kiss has been translated into 10 languages and is considered her defining work.

Since 2009, it's been 8 years now... thinking about it just makes me sentimental and depressed. The more time passes, I feel like I'm becoming more and more needy for Nana to continue, and for more of Yazawa Ai's works :(
