Takuma Morishige was born in Miyazaki prefecture back in 1978. A professional comic artist, he earned an engineering degree from the University of Hiroshima. While Morishige has been working as a comic artist since 2001, he is best known for his work on My Neighbor Seki and for being the brother to the award-winning comic artist Akiko Higashimura. Morishige even appears as a character in Higashimura's autobiographical comic "Himawari..."
In 2000 Morishige's debut project, Life Arts, was a finalist selection for the Chiba Tetsuya Comic Award. He would then turn his attention towards manga creation full-time in 2001. He has since developed six series, most of them being comedies.
"Morishige's artwork is solid and he does a great job at making
some of Seki's ridiculous actions look fantastic." -- Sequential

and reading it made me appreciate
the wonder in everyday activities while being more content with small moments of imagination." -- Comics Worth Reading
