She writes BL manga and yaoi doujinshi under the pen-name Rock Yanao. Yana is her real first name, but Toboso is not her real surname. In reality, "Yana" and "Toboso" are both different ways to pronounce "kururu" (枢), which means "to pivot/turn."

Toboso often likes to bring up her dislike for being mistakenly called "Yana Hitsugi" by her fans, as the kanji for Hitsugi means "coffin" (柩) but looks similar in appearance for the kanji for "toboso."

Her assistants include Satorigi Akiyo, Hazuki Wakana and her editor is Kuma Takeshi, a former mangaka. She is friends with manga artist, Fujiwara Cocoa.

Yana Toboso draws herself as a devil with a black body and horns, a round white head, and a pointed tail. She has never showed a real picture of herself, so her actual appearance is unknown.

Before Volume 4, Toboso's devil had hair. Though, she later states that she had a bald spot the size of a ¥10 coin.

I was reading Black Butler vol. 11 and she said that her debut work is a series call "9th." Does anyone know anything about it? I can't seem to find any information on it.

It’s interesting to see how Yana took a step away from BL with Kuroshitsuji. She seems very adamant on saying Ciel and Sebastian don’t have any romantic ties to each other in her blog and I think she really wanted to have a work that was seen in another light away from her norm. Yaoi usually has no substance or great story lines and it’s really interesting to see how deep of a story she had created. She’s one of my all time favorite mangaka.

Never got surprised when i learnt that she actually writes BL other than Kuroshitsuji. :D You can apparently feel her desire to draw Ciel and Sebas-chan in naughty situations. The hints in the manga is subtle but pretty clear to a BL fan! Some may say those moments were pure fan-service but D'UH - she IS also a fan of SebaCiel, you know!- So when you add this up to the fact that Kuroshitsuji had been a yaoi originally, it all makes sense. I would pay for her doujinshi if she were to draw SebaCiel under a different pen-name! it could be more awesome than a rainbow-tailed fox!!!!! ❤💙💜💛💚
