* OnlySixFaces: Take a look at some of the major male characters from their works, spanning from early series ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' to her more recent ''Manga/AbsoluteBoyfriend''. Most of them have the same exact face, and their hairstyles are also very similar. Same goes for Their female characters, although they're a bit more distinguishable (usually). Although as stated above, she has improved over the years. The type of face and hair that repeats more often is the male leads... and since [[WordOfGod in their free talks they always mention]] they think they look handsome, it's pretty clear there's a lot of AuthorAppeal involved.

On the other hand, when Warase ''does'' decide to go DarkerAndEdgier, they do so ''hardcore'': ''Manga/SakuraGari'', ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' and ''Manga/CeresCelestialLegend'' have plenty of bishonen, melodrama and love triangles, but the utterly twisted and psychologically driven storyline has had people refer to Watase as a potential MagnificentBitch.

A very prolific and well-known {{mangaka}}, Yuu Watase (born March 5, 1970) is best known as the creator of ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' and ''Manga/CeresCelestialLegend'', both of which have been adapted into anime. She made her debut in 1989 with the oneshot ''Pajama de Ojama'' (''An Interlude in Pyjamas'') and is predominantly a writer of {{shoujo}} series, although she has recently begun branching out into other demographics, including {{shounen}} (''Manga/ArataTheLegend'') and {{yaoi}} (''Manga/SakuraGari''). She has also written some novels as well, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki.

Her first works were typically characterized by love triangles, high levels of melodrama (specially during the original ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' era), drawn out, almost laughably [[TastesLikeDiabetes sappy]] love scenes, and of course, plenty of {{bishonen}}.

Some of her Watase's manga works include:



* ArtEvolution: Big time. The biggest development was done during ''Ceres Celestial Legend''. Her characters, [[OnlySixFaces though still similar to each other]], have become more rounded. And she deliberately changed her style for ''Manga/SakuraGari'' and ''Manga/ArataTheLegend'' respectively.

* CantHaveSexEver: She loves this trope with a passion! In half of her works there's always some reason for the two leads not hooking up. Either the female lead needs to stay a virgin, or one of the characters is cursed, or not a real human, and so on, so on.
