Continuing from the previous article, here are even more mangaka who might never be guessed to be women.

The mangaka:

Kobayashi Ritz (Saki) [Disputed]

Kobayashi Ritsu is resolutely silent on “her” gender, and the information which exists is contradictory – “she” has been drawn as a schoolgirl at least once, been identified as a female when she was an eroge illustrator, and has made various comments which some consider “feminine,” along with displaying a noted refusal to draw panchira.

On the other hand, his Mixi profile identifies him as a male (some speculate so as to avoid unwanted messages) and in another online profile he gave his gender as “I’m a boy, you know!”

There have even been reports that she was an actual schoolgirl at the time of writing, or that he is androgynous.

The truth remains a mystery, but rarely has an author taken such obvious care to ensure confusion reigns.
