Hinako Takanaga (高永ひなこ) is a popular yaoi manga-ka (Japanese comics creator). She has also provided illustrations for several yaoi light novels by other authors, including The Guilty by Katsura Izumi. Her first manga story, 合格祈願 (Goukaku kigan, Prayers for a passing grade?), was published by Hanamaru Comics in 1997; it was later reworked as the first chapter of Challengers. Most of her works have been translated into English and German (chiefly by Tokyopop imprints). She was a guest at YaoiCon 2007, invited by Juné, the US publishers of her popular series Little Butterfly.[1] Her influences include Suzue Miuchi, Yun Koga and Range Murata.[2]
