Creator / Yuu Watase

Go To

A very prolific and well-known mangaka, Yuu Watase (born March 5, 1970) is best known as the creator of Fushigi Yuugi and Ceres, Celestial Legend, 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 (Arata Kangatari) and yaoi (Sakura Gari). She has also written some novels as well, according to The Other Wiki.

Her first works were typically characterized by love triangles, high levels of melodrama (specially during the original Fushigi Yuugi era), drawn out, almost laughably sappy love scenes, and of course, plenty of bishonen.

On the other hand, when she does decide to go Darker and Edgier, she does so hardcore: Sakura Gari, Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden and Ceres, Celestial Legend have plenty of bishonen, melodrama and love triangles, but the utterly twisted and psychologically driven storyline has had people refer to her as a potential Magnificent Bitch.

Some of her manga works include:
