To tell you the truth I don't know much about him, nor do I have a picture of him because he doesn't like to be photographed. What I do know is that he is extremely talented. A master storyteller and incredible artist he alone does Blade of the Immortal. Here is what I do know though. The information that I have on him is from the interview w/ him that was featured in the Blade of the Immortal: Blood of a Thousand trade (pick it up if you need the first six issues!).

-He was born on February 17th, 1970 in Chiba. *nine years older than me that would make him 27!) Young and talented! Wow!

-All the weapons in the story are almost all his creations, and so are the martial arts *which he claims to have no skill of*

-Manji is said to be his idea of the ideal hero. A person who never reveals their weaknesses but is not as powerful as they may first seem.

-Although he didn't have a model for Rin, after he first drew her people started saying she looks like his younger sister.

When I find out more about him *because as you saw this really wasn't about him him as much as his development of the characters* I'll write some more. All I know is that he's the man!
