A critically acclaimed mangaka, noted for psychological storytelling and well-rounded characters which defy and subvert many anime and manga tropes. Writes extremely good suspense, but is not solely limited to the thriller genre. Excellent, detailed artwork, notable for [[CastOfSnowflakes Casts of Snowflakes]] (within a single manga, at any rate, as he is also one of the most prolific users of the ReusedCharacterDesign concept since his idol, OsamuTezuka). Also has an affinity for {{Jigsaw Puzzle Plot}}s, often introducing new characters and plot points [[ChekhovsGun long before]] revealing their significance. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And big noses.]]

Also notable for writing complex, fleshed out, and realistic characters even when they are based on himself, and for a tendency to have his major characters' names begin with the sound K.

----

* ''Manga/YawaraAFashionableJudoGirl'' (1986-1993)
* ''Manga/MasterKeaton'' (1988-1994)
* ''Manga/{{Happy}}'' (1993-1999)
