Chika Umino is the pen name of an anonymous Japanese female mangaka, designer and illustrator born in Adachi, Tokyo.

She graduated from the Tokyo Metropolitan Art and Craft High School.

Her pen name comes from her favorite location Umi no Chikaku no Youenchi (海の近くの遊園地, lit. an amusement park by the sea), which is also the title of her doujinshi works prior to her debut.

She likes Harry Potter and anime by Hayao Miyazaki. She calls herself an otaku.

Umino still kept contact with Hiroshi Kamiya and Mikako Takahashi who voices Takemoto and Yamada respectively from the anime adaptations of Honey and Clover.

Honey & Clover is a masterpiece and 3-gatsu no Lion follows closely behind. Both award winners to boot.

This author is a genius. My all time favourite mangaka. She has such a beautiful way with words (so many memorable quotes from H&C) and her stories always make you think and leave you with a strange but calming sense of nostalgia.

I liked H&C, but why not MoritaxYamada? :c

Hachimitsu to Clover and 3-gatsu no Lion, such beautiful works. Needs more praising!

Really hoping 3 Gatsu no Lion gets an anime adaptation and it's gotta be made by the same people who did H&C

3 Gatsu no lion is so awesome!
I seriously hope the translations start again pretty soon.

I loved her art in H&C. I think she's also doing the char designs for "au Mirai Kenkyuujo (A.U.F.L)" :D
