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.

Zettai Kareshi ♥

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).

I have to agree with the opinion that says Sakura Gari is her best manga to date.

Maybe the lack of editorial guidance was also influential here (she wrote about it in the last volume), meaning that she did not have to worry about mass perception or even rating of her work, she was truly free to explore and tell the story she wanted to tell.

Sort of have to agree with ofelya lol

Did I ever write any comment here before?

But anyway yeah.. though I kinda like her shoujo manga.. but her only yaoi work, Sakura Gari, is the best manga that she did (well for me)

Sakura Gari es la vaina más genial que existe, hng.
