Like many mangaka, Ms. Taniguchi's path into the comics industry began when she entered and won and comics contest, and had her winning submission published. Success in one contest encouraged her to enter another; from there, things took off and she began to develop as a cartooning professional. Ms. Taniguchi is best known for stories such as Aquarium, Call Me Princess and Princess Prince (available in English from <linkto:http://www.centralparkmedia.com>Central Park Media Manga) which project her talent for conveying true-to-life emotions through her characters that connect with the reader's own feelings. Whether her characters face fairytale dilemmas where a prince must disguise himself as a girl in order to prevent a curse from destroying his parents' kingdom, or real problems related to what adulthood means and the responsibilities of really loving someone, Taniguchi also gives her readers a sense of optimism. In fact, Taniguchi has said she prefers to create stories that she hopes "makes people happy". US-based fans of Ms. Taniguchi's works will have the chance to meet her at Shoujocon, and to learn about her experience as a longtime professional in the Japanese comics field.
