Ogawa was one of Ashirogi Muto's assistants, along with Kato and Takahama when Detective Trap was being published. Due to his wealth of knowledge and experience he was the head assistant. He did the backgrounds for Detective Trap. Then when Reversi was serialized, Ogawa was hired back as a fourth assiastant to help them keep up with two serialized series. He is also an assistant for Shonen 3. He is currently 37 years old and has a wife and three kids.
Ogawa seems to be a natural leader and often obsesses over due dates. He seems to love his family and tries to come home every night (or his wife will nag at him). Over all he does care about his job, the manga he is currently working on and his fellow Mangaka. When Mashiro was behind on the first chapter of Reversi Ogawa even brought in 2 extra assistants to help out.
