About the author (2005)

Yumi Tamura broke into the manga world with a bang, winning the 1983 Shogakukan Grand Prize for new artists. Since then she has gone on to write many extremely popular shojo manga stories such as the hit series TOMOE GA YUKU (There Goes Tomoe), ANO NATSU GA OWAITA (That Summer has Ended), and X-DAY.

Always one to experiment in action/adventure formats, CHICAGO is Tamura's latest completed work.
