Dog Style was really good, but Koi ga Bokura o Yurusu Hani was really WTF... and I didn't like it at all.

Definitely one of my favourite mangakas. Yes her stories are sometimes extremely confusing and seem absurd, but everything about them is so true to human nature that you really get engrossed into reading them. Hope she comes up with more stories!

I love her stories so much. Dog Style and Shiiku Gakari Rika are my faves. Her dark works are really gripping and amazing and her comedies are awesome. The expressions are classic and the stories and characters stick with you :D

Um, Sanbika is the first story of Kaibutsu Ouji.

Anyway, on to her works. "Well known for (her) WTFism style of writing..." sums it up pretty well, I must say.

Or at least it does with Koi ga Bokura o Yurusu Hani, Posion Cherry Drive, Sound Masturbation and Tantei Aoneko.

The rest of her works (that I've read - partly or entirely -, i.e. Dog Style, Grand Guignol, Kaibutsu Ouji, Shiiku Gakari Rika, Tetsu x Rika, Tanshibugi) are pure genius.

She really shines in her darker stuff. I really think she actually needs to write the WTF-style stories to keep herself from getting swallowed into her darker stories. She writes great characters, too - they'd make great case studies for psychological conditions.

Having read all of her scanlated works, I'm convinced she's a genius - and I believe she's one of those writers whose works are best read in the original language. She plays a lot with words and language, and the odd stories make it all the more confusing. Even then, she has me hooked <3

Tantei Aoneko is the best thing ever, seriously.

Koi ga Bokura o Yurusu Hani is really something! It may be a little absurd at the beginning...but it is so funny and deep that I almost couldn't believe it ^^. Have to read more of this mangaka...
