Miki Yoshikawa made her pro manga debut in 2003 with Glory Days, a one-shot in Kodansha's Magazine Special. After a stint as an assistant for Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail), she published another one-shot, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, in Shonen Magazine Wonder in 2005. Thanks to its deft comedic touch, Yankee-kun went on to become a short series and later Yoshikawa's first long-running series in Weekly Shonen Magazine. It was adapted into a live-action drama in 2010-11. Yoshikawa's best known work, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, started serialization in 2012 and has since sold more than 3 million copies. It's been adapted into a live-action drama, in 2013, and a TV anime, in 2015.
