Taninaka’s Profile

Takahashi Taninaka

I first fell in love with manga when I was eight years old and read a manga called Rave Master. I thought, “How exciting and thrilling this world can be!” It was as if a bolt of lightning had struck my body.

From there, I became more and more fascinated with manga. I spent all of my small allowance to buy manga. Then, when I was 16 years old, I came across a manga called Bakuman, in which an editor named “Mr. Hattori” said, “I will do my best to support you in creating an interesting manga!” I was impressed by his enthusiasm. I decided that I would definitely become a manga editor in the future. That is why I am now working as an editor at this company.

I am excited to think that I will be able to create a lot of interesting manga with you all!

I look forward to working with you. Let’s make groundbreaking manga together!
