Tsunako is an illustrator at Idea Factory. At the age of 10, she decided to become a game graphic designer and at 18 was already working on illustrations and comics! Upon graduating with a design major in 2008 she joined Idea Factory, which she chose as a fan of their Neverland series. Her favorite animal is a panda and uses it as her portrait often. Her nickname comes from her favorite rice ball ingredient Tuna Mayonnaise.
Playing games as a child inspired her to become someone “who can create games,” yet she found herself working in another field after graduating. But she realized she couldn’t give up her dream! She quit everything to move to Tokyo, and attended school for 3D graphic design. Soon after, she joined Idea Factory as a 3D designer, and 10 years later produced the first Hyperdimension Neptunia. She’s gone on to produce every Neptunia game, as well as the Fairy Fencer F series.
Anime Expo 2018 will run from July 5 through July 8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with Pre-Show Night on July 4, 2018.
