Jenny Rakotomamonjy, who signs with just her first name, is a French comic artist, known for her manga-inspired comic series for Éditions Delcourt. She was born in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. Her famliy left the island when she was three years old, and settled in the Paris-region. She studied Plastic Arts at the Centre Saint Charles and subsequently enrolled at the Gobelins School of Visual Communication to study animation. After her graduation, she made her first animated short, 'Le Papillon', with Antoine Antin through Bibo Films. It won the Canal J jury prize at the Annecy film festival of 2002. She then joined the studios of Marathon Animation, where she worked on the character designs of the animated series based on Bonelli's 'Martin Mystère' (2003-2006) and on the storyboards of 'Totally Spies' (2001-2014). One of her colleagues there was Patricia Lyfoung.

As a comic artist, she has worked together with her husband Alexis Coridun (Mister Choco Man) on most of her projects. They were among the co-founders of the amateur comics studio Chibimag in 2003, and have contributed to several fanzines. Jenny's Asian roots are expressed in her manga drawing style, as her main influences are Tsukasa Hôjo, Kosuke Fujishima, Aï Yazawa, Studio Clamp and Miwa Ueda. By 2006, she got the opportunity to publish her "euro-manga" 'Pink Diary' with Delcourt. This publisher released eight books until 2008.
