Notable work

Yukiru Sugisaki (杉崎 ゆきる, Sugisaki Yukiru, born December 26, 1974[1][2]) is a Japanese manga artist. She has created numerous manga in several demographics, but is perhaps best known for creating the seinen series The Candidate for Goddess and the shōjo series D.N.Angel.


Yukiru Sugisaki started drawing in elementary school and began creating manga at around age 17 or 18.[2] The Kadokawa Shoten shōjo magazine Monthly Asuka published her manga Namaiki no "N" in 1995.[1] After her next work Sotsugyou M, Sugisaki's popular D.N. Angel and The Candidate for Goddess series were simultaneously serialized in Monthly Asuka and the seinin magazine Comic Gum respectively. She also worked on the manga version of Brain Powerd with Yoshiyuki Tomino. Since then, Sugisaki has created numerous one-shots and serializations in many different genres. Infamous for abandoning stories before completion, she regards shōjo as an influence on her story-writing and shōnen as an influence on her illustration style.[2]
