Mari Morimoto

Dr. Morimoto
Osakaborn and Manhattanraised Mari never strayed far from urbanity until she spent nine years at Cornell. Actually its Dr. Morimoto whose real job as a big city veterinarian often wars with her moonlighting as a freelance manga translator. She got her foot in the door with VIZ Media through luck and circumstance and since then has expanded her resume to include panelist panel leader Guest of Honor personal assistant and interpreter and Guest of Honor at several northeast conventions. She has also contributed several articles to the English edition of SHONEN JUMP. A highlight of her translating career was meeting and rubbing elbows with Dragonball creator Akira Toriyama. As a child she had the honor of meeting the late Osamu Tezuka. Source:
