Mohiro Kitoh is the creator of ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' and ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', both of which have been adapted into anime series. Before those, he also wrote the two-volume manga ''{{Wings of Vendemiaire}}'' as well as a number of short stories.

His work nearly always sits on [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism the far end of the cynical side of the scale]] and frequently involves very disturbing material and [[MoodWhiplash abrupt changes in mood]]. [[AuthorAppeal Common themes]] include the [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters cruelty of humans]] and the [[ChildrenAreInnocent innocence]] ([[BreakTheCutie or loss of]], [[SubvertedTrope or indeed lack thereof]]) of children. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking He is also really fond of mountain bikes]]; in fact, one of his currently-running series, ''Noririn'', [[MoodWhiplash is about bikes]].

When you break apart the kanji for his name, it means [[MeaningfulName "ogre-headed teacher."]] [[AbusiveParents Considering]] [[RapeAsDrama what]] [[HarmfulToMinors he]] [[FromBadToWorse puts]] [[DeusAngstMachina his]] [[BreakTheCutie characters]] [[AnyoneCanDie through...]]

Compare to ''GenUrobuchi''.
