Tatsuya Egawa (江川達也 Egawa Tatsuya?, born March 8, 1961) is a Japanese manga artist who was born in the Aichi Prefecture of Nagoya, Japan. He has a degree in applied mathematics and taught college mathematics for five months before switching to manga as a career. He studied under the prolific manga artist Hiroshi Motomiya for four months. Tatsuya's break came when his story "Don't Give Up" won Comic Morning's open contest. He has also directed live-action pornographic films.[1]

Tatsuya is known for his drawings of over-the-top facial expressions always crediting the staff of his creations, even on the covers (crediting the works to "Egawa and his assistants"). Kosuke Fujishima, who is known as the creator of Oh My Goddess was once one of Egawa's assistants.[1]
