Arina Tanemura (種村 有菜, Tanemura Arina, born March 12, 1978) is a Japanese manga artist who mainly creates shōjo manga. Her debut work was a one-shot work titled "The Style of the Second Love" (2番目の恋のかたち, Niban-me no Koi no Katachi), which was later reprinted in her anthology work Short-Tempered Melancholic.[3] Tanemura gained fame with the 1997 publication of I.O.N, a high school romance with a supernatural twist. From 1998 to 2000, she worked on the popular series Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, about a young girl who is the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, followed by Time Stranger Kyoko in 2000-2001 and Full Moon o Sagashite in 2002. In 2004, Tanemura came out with The Gentlemen's Alliance Cross, which broke her tradition by having more than seven volumes in one single series. Tanemura serialized Fudanjuku Monogatari in Margaret magazine from July to November 2011.[4][5]

Despite Tanemura's intentions to draw in a style that makes her stories difficult to animate, both Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne and Full Moon o Sagashite have been adapted into anime series. Her works are primarily serialized in Ribon magazine, with series published in collected volumes by Shueisha. For the 15th anniversary since her debut, she was involved in creating a CD featuring songs based on ten of her heroines.[6][7] Tanemura contributed to a dōjinshi along with other manga artists that was sold for charity efforts for the March 2011 Japanese earthquake.[8] As of November 2011, Tanemura has become a free agent manga artist, no longer solely affiliated with Shueisha.[1][2] However, she continued to publish Sakura Hime Kaden in Ribon until its end in 2012. Her series Neko to Watashi no Kinyōbi ran in Margaret from 2013 to 2015. She also started serializing 31 Ai Dream in Hakusensha's Melody magazine in 2013; this is the author's first josei manga.[9]

With the exception of the unlicensed Fudanjuku Monogatari and Neko to Watashi no Kinyōbi, all of her manga have been published in English by Viz Media in North America. Viz Media has re-released Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (originally released by CMX Manga) with a new translation as well.
