Born in Gifu Prefecture in 1977, Tow Ubukata was exposed to a blending of cultures from early childhood until the age of fourteen, having lived in Singapore and Nepal because of his father's work. In 1996, while in college, Ubukata won the first Sneaker Taisho Gold Prize for his light novel Kuroi Kisetsu (Black Season) and thus debuted as a writer. In 2003, he won the Nihon SF Taisho Award for Mardock Scramble, originally published as a three-volume series. He is involved in a wide range of projects including anime production for Fafner, video game production, and original content writing for comics such as Le Chevalier D'Eon. His other works include the Bye-Bye Earth and Spiegel novel series. In 2009, he published his first historical novel, Tenchi Meisatsu, focusing on a mathematician of the Edo period.

He ruined PP2. I'll never forget his name...

I do not understand how bad he is at writing almost everything yet fafner exodus was one of the best shows in modern anime. I genuinely dont know how that happened but i guess he does have some good in him.

RIP Arise and PP2
But Fafner is one hell of a series


Hirajus | Oct 16, 2015 1:18 AM
Well his wife refused to press charges so... he dodged the bullet.


Quantization | Aug 25, 2015 11:54 PM
He got arrested.


CutePriest | Aug 15, 2015 5:09 AM
He is not good at handling established franchise hence why PP2 and Arise suck. But he is good at writing his won concepts and stories that's why Mardock Scramble was his only good work.


Lamfreyde | May 24, 2015 10:55 AM
I don't blame him for Psycho-Pass 2, his hands were tied, would he had more freedom, he would do better. But i do blame him for Arise, i don't believe he was restricted by anything or anyone there.


ArdenFolgore | May 24, 2015 8:44 AM
His works are either mediocre or awful as fuck.


ZephSilver | Mar 6, 2015 4:05 PM
