Aoi Ikebe debuted with Rakuyō. Subsequently she works on Tsukuroi Tatsu Hito, from which a film is also made: it is her first long series of hers and tells the story of a young woman who works in a tailor’s shop for Western clothes. Princess Maison follows the story of a girl who is determined to buy an apartment on her own strength. The manga, with which she wins numerous awards and from which a drama is also drawn, turns out to be a huge success. Other notable works are Ne Mama (released by Dynit as Mamma), which earned her an award at the Japan Media Arts Festival, Saudade, Dobugawa, Kagome Kagome and Zassō yo Taishi wo idake. One of the characteristics that are most admired in her style is the mastery with which she portrays the women of our age.
