QP:flapper is a two-member illustrator unit consisting of Japanese artists Tometa Ohara and Koharu Sakura. Since 2001, they have provided character designs for anime and light novels.[1] In 2005, they debuted as character designers in Leaf's game Kusari.

According to an interview in Dengeki G's Magazine, Ohara and Sakura first met at Ikebukuro's Taishōromandō, a specialty store for goods from Sega's Sakura Wars franchise.[2] After they formed as a unit, they produced dōjinshi based on various games by Leaf such as To Heart. Ohara and Sakura's pseudonyms were initially simply Tometa (トメ太) and Pimeko (ぴめこ), but Pimeko changed her name to Koharu Sakura in October 2006. In response of this, Tometa added Ohara as a surname to his pseudonym. However, they still used their old aliases when working on visual novels.


  • Tometa Ohara (小原 トメ太, Ohara Tometa) or simply Tometa
