Okazaki Kyouko 岡崎京子

[born: 13 Dec 1963, Toukyou-metropolis; bloodtype: ?]

Unlike a lot of shoujo-mangaka Okazaki debuted in a magazine aimed primarily at males. Her debut-title was "Virgin" in 1985. She never drew for the common shoujo/ladies magazines at all and became one of the most popular New Generation shoujo-mangaka. Her art-style is very simplistic, but it captures the mood of our society today just as her stories do.
On 18 May 1996 Okazaki had a very heavy car accident and has been unable to write any stories since then. {DHI}

One of Okazaki's greatest works. The story is set at a high school near the river. Wakakusa Haruna has a boyfriend. She sleeps with him but she doesn't love him very much. One of Haruna's close friends sleeps with a married man to get money.
Yamada-kun is gay. He is dating Tajima-san to hide the fact that he is gay. His classmates including Haruna's boyfriend are always bullying him. One day they lock Yamada in a locker. Haruna saves him and they become friends. Yoshikawa-san has worked as a fashion model since she was very young. She always eats a lot and throws up immediately after that. Yamada-kun loves to see a corpse that he discovered in the bush. Seeing it gives him courage. The corpse is his treasure. One day he went to see the corpse and he met Yoshikawa-san there. They sometimes go to see the corpse together from that day forward. Haruna's boyfriend gets Haruna's friend pregnant. They make a quarrel in the bush and he strangles her. When Haruna is in Yoshikawa-san's place, Yamada-kun gives Yoshikawa-san a call. Yoshikawa-san tells Haruna what Yamada stated. "He discovered a new corpse. He tells us to come to see it. He's going to bury it in no time. Your friend, the girl with a long hair. Your boyfriend has killed her."
They can't see the new corpse in the bush. Haruna's friend was strangled and only got unconscious temporarily. Everyone but Haruna's boyfriend is disappointed. Around the same time, Tajima-san kills herself accidentally. She's been jealous of Haruna, who is a close friend of Yamada-kun. Tajima-san has failed to set Haruna's house fire and burned herself. Later, Yamada-kun tells Haruna he often sees Tajima-san's ghost. "I very much prefer the dead Tajima-san to the living one." {KUN}
