TSURUTANI Kaori was born in Toyama Prefecture in 1982. In 2007, her manga “Okina Daidokoro” won the runner-up award at the 52nd Chiba Tetsuya Awards. TSURUTANI’s first serialized manga was “don’t like this”, which ran on web magazine LIKE THIS. Her current manga, “Metamorphose no engawa (BL Metamorphosis)”, has been serialized on the web comic platform Comic Newtype since November 2017. The manga has gained fans among both men and women across a range of age groups, and has been selected by many as one of the top manga of the year, including Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2019 (#1 for women), THE BEST MANGA 2019 Kono Manga o Yome! (#1) and Bros. Comic Awards 2018 (first prize). In 2019, TSURUTANI won the 22nd Japan Media Arts Festival Manga Division New Face Award. “Metamorphose no engawa” is expected to come to a close in December 2020 with the release of its fifth volume.
