    ,

    Born in Hokkaido, Japan, Kazusa Takashima is most known for her yaoi manga. She started self-publishing her work in 1999, but in 2001 her manga Mad Love Chase (aka Harlem Beat wa Yoake Made) was serialization in Japanse magazine Asuka. After the well received debut Takashima went on to produce Last Client and Wild Rock.

    Takashima’s illustrations use very thin uniform lineweight. Her character-centric work ranges from very energetic to sombre. Her yaoi manga, in particular, features very erotic scenes which Takashima’s prefers to focus on intimacy over explicitness.
