Anaheim, California (May 1, 2006) -- Anime Expo® 2006 (AX2006) and Go!

Ms. Takeuchi has been making manga since 1994. Her breakout series was Ayakashi Hime Kurenai, published under Kadokawa's Asuka imprint. Other early works include Miharu Shinjo Jewelry File and A Wise Man Sleeps. In 2000, she began Her Majesty's Dog (Jo-ousama no Inu), her longest and most popular work-which is also GO! Comi's best selling title. Her Majesty's Dog is a supernatural romance about a shy transfer student and her protector, a hot-looking demon who can only survive on her tender kisses. Ain't It Cool News praised its "convincing, quirky relationships and sharp horror," while Animefringe called it "a skillful combination of an above average ghost-hunting story and an entertaining high school drama." Ms. Takeuchi will be celebrating her birthday (July 4th) during Anime Expo®.

Ms. Takeuchi joins, previously announced, CLAMP, Seiji Mizushima, Vic Mignogna and Laura Bailey as Anime Expo® 2006 official Guests of Honor.
