Cruz is of South Korean descent. He was born in Fukuoka, Japan on May 8, 2001. He is former artist for Shounen Jump. He also wrote and designed many songs for Japanese Indie band Garnidelia.[2][3]


Cruz Avery has been called out by The Anime Man on one occasion for ripping off The Anime Mans style.[4][5]


Cruz started posting web-manga in mid-2014 while attending Higashi Fukuoka High School. His manga got popular very quickly, with his manga being variety of popular genres (sci-fi, Horror, Sport, etc.). His characters would occasionally make appearances in his other works.

On October 2014, Cruz had to chance to write his first proper Manga "Sugar Rate!!", However it was very unsuccessful as most of his readers were English speakers and couldn't speak Japanese, and after the October 28th of 2014 'sugar Rate!!' was discontinued. On December 12, 2014, Cruz removed all of his web comics off Comic Fury without warning or reasoning. Because of this, His readers thought either he got sick of drawing manga as he was running 20 manga at once or Cruz has died.

2 Years later (January 11, 2016) Cruz Avery made an unexpected come back by having his new Manga advertised in the Weekly Shōnen Magazine. The new manga was called "とり返す - Torikaesu" (Tor-ee-car-e-su). The advertisement even listed an Anime Adaptation for 2017 with the opening theme sung by Jpop indie band GARNiDELiA.[6]


The anime adaptation of Torikaesu has a few celebrities listed in the cast such as Anie Inoue and Kasumi
