This women-centric manga revolves around Nana Futami, a newcomer
shōjo manga artist. She is encouraged by her fellow female colleagues, especially her editor Kaede Satō, and her aide Mizuki Hazama. Despite going through phases of powerful delirium, which she attributes to her work-related affliction, she continues to slog every day with the support of her associates.
Initially, Kuzushiro debuted this manga as a standalone sequence in the Kodansha‘s Kiss magazine right in the month of February 2019. Soon after, it was adapted into a recurring sequence in the Kodansha‘s Comic Days app and its website in May the same year.
Kuzushiro first introduced her manga, Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, in the magazine Ichijinsha‘s Comic Yuri Hime in the year 2011 and decided to bring it to a close in January 2017. It was published as the sixth and final bounded book volume in August 2017 by Ichijinsha. The manga subsequently led to the creation of a 13-episode television animation series, with its first run in Japan in April 2014. The series was simultaneously showcased globally through Crunchyroll.
Kuzushiro brought her serial, titled Chihaya-san wa Sono Mama de Ii (Chihaya-san is Perfect Just the Way She Is), to an end in May 2018. The manga was initially published in Shueisha‘s Jump SQ. magazine in December 2014.
In one of her other ventures, Kuzushiro originated Living With My Brother’s Wife (Ani no Yome to Kurashiteimasu.), a continuous serial manga in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine in December 2015, which followed a standalone manga with the same title she published in April 2015. The 14th bundled volume of the manga was published by Square Enix on September 25. The manga was digitally distributed in English by Manga UP! Global of Square Enix. The manga recently got added to the BookWalker Global Store’s collection.
Kuzushiro launched her manga titled Tobaku Senpai Nani Kakeru? under the banner of Futabasha‘s Manga Action magazine in February 2017. Its second volume got published by Futabasha in May 2018. She initiated the Akuma no Mama (also called Mama Akuma) manga under the Square Enix’s Gangan Online website in October 2018. Its second volume got put out by Square Enix in December 2020, with English publication done by Yen Press in February 2022.
