Wish him the very best in this path. I don't know if he's done something like this before, but he's written a lot of great anime, so this should still be in his wheelhouse.

I've been a fan of Kobayashi ever since I first watched her tokusatsu work, so it's cool to see her dipping into manga!

Kobayashi is a woman, actually.

Going from adapting others works to running your own completely original story is a big step. I wish her good luck. (Unless I misread the article). Does anyone know of any long running series that has the writer and artist are separate people? Technically One Punch Man is though it is based on ONE's own webcomic, and there has been some question how much changes to the manga from webcomic has been ONE's work or Murata's.

Death Note/Bakuman, Boruto, Dragon Ball Super, Act Age (until the author got arrested), To Love-Ru....
It's actually quite common.

Kinnikuman and Fist of the North Star are two of the biggest manga of all time with a writer/artist duo.

If you watch her tokusatsu works, she knows how to write a damn good story. Seriously, Mirai Sentai Timeranger, if you cut all the Super Sentai stuff, it is still a really good story about four cops from the future, chasing criminals from said future to the present and they meet this present guy who is running away from his destiny and ends up working with said four future cops to help them arrest these criminals by setting up and odds job business as their day job, and helping them at the same time. It's both compelling sci-fi, and later, it added a romance element that made sense with the story they are telling.

That said, here are all of her tokusatsu works per franchise.

Kamen Rider
- Kamen Rider Ryuki - often cited as one of the inspirations for Madoka Magica, battle royale series
- Kamen Rider Den-O - action comedy series starring Takeru Satoh of live-action Rurouni Kenshin film series fame, and is one of the popular entries of the franchise
- Kamen Rider OOO - another popular entry of the franchise starring a hobo and his bird man partner
- Kamen Rider Amazons - a reimagining of Kamen Rider Amazon, but with its own unique twist. It's only common factor with the original Showa era series are the basic suit designs of the heroes, and the gore

Super Sentai
- Seijuu Sentai Gingaman - if you are familiar with Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, a lot of its plot elements were directly lifted from it
- Mirai Sentai Timeranger - if you are familiar with Power Rangers Time Force, a lot of its plot elements were directly lifted from it
- Samurai Sentai Shinkenger - if you are familiar with Power Rangers Samurai... it's the same show, but they remove all the Japanese cultural nuances and made it American. Heck, Kobayashi was credited in every episode she was involved in the original Shinkenger series.
- Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters - super spies

^There's also the Sailor Moon live-action show which she solo worked on after Ryuki. It covered the dark kingdom arc and was better than the manga and both anime story-wise.
