Personal Quote:

I really wanted to write a story with a sexy girl, a good-looking guy, some romance, video games, and cute school uniforms! Of course Bunny [Usagi/Serena Tsukino] is strong, too... we've got to be strong for our boys! Right, girls?


During college, she served as a miko (temple maiden) at the Shiba Daijingu Shrine. She made her "Sailor Moon" character Rei Hino a miko, based on this experience. See more »
