We are a comic-creator unit based in Osaka, Japan.
Kenichi Chikuhama is in charge of writing, composition, and animation production. In addition to creating comics, he has also worked on many entertainment events for local communities and amusement parks. He graduated from Kansai University and holds a grade 1 Event Management Certificate from Japan Association for the Promotion of Creative Events.
Kazuko Chikuhama is in charge of drawing. In 1988, her comic story, "Madame and the Swimmer," appeared in Garo, one of the most popular and well-known comic magazines in Japan. She has also worked as an illustrator and designer for a major energy company, various events, and other companies from a wide range of fields. As she refuses to limit herself to one style, the taste of her work varies from piece to piece from warm, tender touches to sharp, artistic styles.
We aspire to continue creating more and more happy and funky comics.
