Someone recommended me her work... When googling her name I found the first manga I ever read which name I had forgotten, Imadoki. Insane:0

Fushigi Yuugi was perfect work, arigato gozaimasu.

Zettai Kareshi was the first manga I read back when I barely knew what manga was.

Sakura Gari- not for the faint of heart but the artwork is really beautiful.

Sakura Gari... Whoa that left an impactful impression on me! I've never read any other of Watase-sensei's works, but I'm sure it's a as great as this one

Her works, despite being some what cheesy and aimed towards mainly girls- never fail to entertain me or make me emotional. She has created many great characters, my fave being Nuriko- also sensei must have some magic in her hands to consistently draw such good looking men :D

Sakura Gari is mad good... full of hate, sadness and insanity - I love it.

I love her work very much. I've watch Fushigi Yuugi for 6 or 7 times (lost count of it) already.To me, this is the ONLY anime that really suits my taste. It has all genres that I wish every anime has. I also watch 2 version of Zettai Kareshi live-action (Taiwan and Japanese), animes Arata Kangatari, and Ceres. I wish u would make more of ur works into anime especially Zettai Kareshi and Alice 19th. And read some of ur mangas (didn't hv time to read all of them).
