    Hikaru Hayashi started to work as a manga artist after graduating in philosophy from the Department of Humanities of the Tokyo Metropolitan University. He received an encouragement award and an honorable mention from Business Jump, and also worked as a manga assistant. In 1997 he founded the manga and design studio Go office.

    Tsubura Kadomaru has always loved drawing and sketching, and in middle and high school was the head of the school's art club. She protected the club, that had become a manga study group and Gundam get-together, and its members, raising creators who now work in the game and anime industry. She studied oil painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Tokyo University of the Arts at a time when film studies and contemporary art were thriving. She has authored, edited, and conceived dozens of drawing manuals.
