Who is Tow Ubukata?
Tow Ubukata is a Japanese science fiction light novel, manga and anime creator. He spent ages four to nine of his childhood in Singapore and ages 10 to 14 in Nepal. In Nepal, Ubukata maintained his Japanese heritage and language abilities; he read dictionaries to keep in touch with his native tongue. This led to success immediately following his high school years, when he received several writer's awards. Formerly a student of Waseda University's school of political economics, his works include Le Chevalier D'Eon, Mardock Scramble, Heroic Age, Pilgrim Jäger, Sōkyū no Fafner and Ghost in the Shell: Arise
Hoping to become a novelist, he took part in the Kadokawa Shoten Sneaker competition after graduating from high school, and won. After that, he enrolled in Waseda University, and then entered the world of game production. He fulfilled his dream of making manga, by teaming up with illustrator Mami Itou. At this time, he was already planning Mardock Scramble. He also published the ultra-thick novel Bye Bye, Earth before leaving the university without completing his degree.
