    After his debut in 1953, Takahashi published the manga series Arashi wo Koete and Princess Anne. His signature style of depicting glittering stars in the eyes of his protagonists would have a lasting influence on other manga artists. In the 1960s and 1970s, he was at the helm of many magazine covers and illustrations for popular girls’ manga magazines like Nakayoshi, Shojo Friend, and Margaret. Despite his classic style, his works are still largely popular today. The main visual for the event ‘Lucky Star’ features a girl in a red Christmas-themed costume surrounded by animals, blue snowflakes, and delicate lace.
