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.

fafner, heroic age and mardock scramble, 3 good series. Fafner is the best.


VanishingKira | Feb 27, 5:06 AM
Remembered for Psyco-Pass S2, forgotten or better yet unknown for Fafner.

Like Rahkshilord's comment says below.
Yeah, he's written good things before like Fafner or Mardock Scramble, you know what he hasn't written? A good sequel to Psycho-Pass, he's written a very very terrible sequel to psycho-pass however. from what I've seen, he's pretty great when he's the lead writer of an original project, like Fafner; but terrible when he's adapting his style to a previous work someone else created, like Ghost in the Shell or Psycho-Pass.

psycho pass was never good anyways


Henmas | Dec 28, 2019 5:41 PM
Is this comedian responsible for whatever the hell Psycho-Pass came to be?


justtvalerie | Dec 19, 2019 6:38 AM
So, basically, this guy just ruins franchises for a living, then. Can't believe what he did to my beloved Psycho-Pass.


Zevven | Dec 15, 2019 6:11 AM
May our hopes for a good Psycho-Pass season rest in peace.I've got so hyped after watching 2nd and 3rd movies and then I see this...Thank Mr. Ubukata.


Hatsuyuki | Dec 14, 2019 3:24 AM
Another season of Psycho Pass ruined. When will you stop bastardizing this franchise before you're satisfied ?


SteelingMax | Nov 3, 2019 6:57 PM
Why is he still working on Psycho-Pass?


Nycro | Oct 19, 2019 8:42 AM
Based for making those people seeth. Psycho-Pass was never good.


Briareoss | Oct 15, 2019 4:05 PM
And here we have the person who single handedly killed a masterpiece franchise (Psycho Pass) by making, what he called, a "screenplay" from the letters of a restaurant napkin.
