They received the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo for Ceres, Celestial Legend in 1997.[1] Since writing the debut short story "Pajama de Ojama" ("An Intrusion in Pajamas"), Watase has created more than 80 compiled volumes of short stories and continuing series.[2] Because of their frequent use of beautiful male characters within each work, Watase is widely regarded in the comic circles as a bishōnen mangaka.[citation needed] In October 2008, Watase began their first shonen serialization, Arata: The Legend in Weekly Shōnen Sunday.

Their name is romanticized as "Yû Watase" in earlier printings of Viz Media's publications of Fushigi Yūgi, Alice 19th, and Ceres, The Celestial Legend, while in Viz Media's Fushigi Yūgi Genbu Kaiden and Absolute Boyfriend where else in other books, the name is romanized as "Yuu Watase". In Chuang Yi's English-language versions of Fushigi Yugi (spelled without a macron or circumflex). In May 2019, Watase came out as x-gender, a Japanese non-binary gender identity.
