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.

I decided to give PP2 a second chance after watching the movie, but god damn that shit is terrible. Thanks, you fucking hack.

psycho pass 2 was actually pretty god but kamui was an annoying villian.

Being able to right Exodus after all the time between Fafner, this guy has to have some talent and Exodus is one hell of a well written series.


RSNBLMN | Jul 13, 2017 11:54 PM
PP2 is understandable given the circumstances, but to write the first lacklustre GITS entry? DAMN IT TOW UBUKATA


Cyber_Icarus | Mar 29, 2017 4:51 AM
thanks for ruining psycho pass 2 and GITS:arise you incompetent hack.

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


JizzyHitler | Jan 1, 2016 9:51 PM
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

Well his wife refused to press charges so... he dodged the bullet.
