Tanaka Yutaka is a mangaka responsible for a number of titles, the most well-known being the short story collection ''Virgin Night'', ''Manga/MyLovelyGhostKana'', ''Manga/AiRen'', and ''Manga/MimiaHime''. His work is generally considered and categorized as {{hentai}} on indexes, [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove which may restrict his potential audience]], but truthfully what he writes is SliceOfLife PornWithPlot with ''heavy'' emphasis on plot. His stories focus on relationships, love, sex and how honesty and openness causes them to flourish. He likes to avert most of the usual tropes, with strong women who are not afraid to take the lead in a relationship, honesty between partners and an aversion to CantSpitItOut-itis and other PoorCommunicationKills. Despite some dark back-stories and bittersweet moments (and more than occasional severe MoodWhiplash) his work is inevitably optimistic and can leave you with warm fuzzies if you are willing to go for the ride.
