I love her style and her stories. They're a relaxing read despite all the drama and very unique. I especially like her josei stories.

I simply love her work... her manga characters. and I really like how she puts a taste of reality in one of her work. I think it was Cappuccino. Though I wished it were longer. I read most of her work, though i cant remember the plot by now, might just re-read her work when I'm bored. :)

I've read a couple of her mangas and never noticed they were by the same mangaka!!!! Lucky I checked cause I was always thinking heyyy doesn't this art style look kinda like Marmalade boy~ I was reading ultra maniac at the time too~ I love her works XD
