Satoko Kiyuduki
Yonkoma mangaka, illustrator, and character designer famous for her unique puni-moe style. She has authored several manga series, illustrated a number of light novels, and has been an important member of the creative team behind the Dept Heaven series since Yggdra Union. Her penname is written all in katakana, and her surname (きゆづき) can be Romanized as "Kiyuduki", "Kiyuzuki", or "Kiyudzuki". The third is the most phonetically correct, but the first is most often used in official documents. As a Reclusive Artist, her year of birth is unknown; her birthdate is February 7, and she lives somewhere in Fukuiken.

Her leap to fame both in the English-speaking community and Japan occurred when Shinichi Ito of Sting Entertainment, worrying about who ought to handle the main visuals of his new masterpiece, went to a bookstore and picked up a light novel she had illustrated. Ito fell in love with her art, got in touch with her, she took him up on his offer, and the rest is history.

Kiyuduki's art is characterized by soft, childish designs, liberal use of Super-Deformed segments, careful use of various coloring techniques, and ridiculously intricate medieval attire. Her handwriting resembles the font Kristen ITC, and she often incorporates elements of her previous designs into whatever project she's working on nownote . She never uses assistants, and does all of the work for all her projects by herself. As she works on dark fairy tales and the Dept Heaven series, expect intentional Art-Style Dissonance. She does use a more mature, less SD style for some of her game designs.

As for the woman herself? Based on her appearances in interviews, she can swing from being a tennen boke worthy of Kisaragi (she sometimes doesn't realize plot points involved in her designs until she plays the games in question) to a clever joker ("Mr. Ito always asks for chains, spikes, and a cursed feeling!") very quickly.
