Chica Umino (羽海野チカ, Umino Chika) is a manga-ka (comic artist/cartoonist) who was born in Tokyo, Japan. She began work as a product designer and illustrator. Her most notable work to date is her 'beloved' Honey and Clover, a 'slice of life' manga series which debuted in 2000 in Shueisha's manga magazine, CUTiEcomic.

Umino has a unique drawing style, listing Studio Ghibli amongst her influences, and her characters are remarkably well-developed.

It is very rare for a manga-ka to use his or her real name, and Chica Umino is a pen-name. In keeping with the trend for using something special to the individual in developing a pen-name, Umino's is styled after the name of an amusement park by the sea.

Her work has become popular overseas (America),

“When I was little, I was out riding my brand-new blue bicycle when I decided to see how far I could keep going without looking back even once.
I could feel with my back how my neighborhood was receding, further and further away... but I kept pedaling with all my might, my mind almost going blank. All I could hear was the sound of my own heart, thumping wildly in my ears. Even now, I remember it sometimes. What exactly was I trying to do that day? What was it that I wanted to prove?

It's no good. My mind just keeps fogging over. I have this irritating sound stuck in my head. What is it? This sound... Ohh... I know what it is.
This is... the sound of emptiness.”
Chica Umino, Honey and Clover, Vol. 7

“Loneliness comes suddenly like waves and recedes just as fast. That continues on forever. It’s the same for you. It’s the same for everyone.”
Chica Umino

“As time passes, the day will come when everything will fade to memories. But those miraculous days, when you and I, along with everyone else, searched together for just that one thing, will continue revolving forever somewhere deep in my heart, as my bittersweet memory.”
Chica Umino
