Kikuchi Hideyuki 菊地秀行

[born: 1949, Chiba-prefecture ; bloodtype: ?]

Kikuchi is a novelist, not a manga artist. But he sometimes writes stories for manga, and several manga and anime have been based on his novels. Actually, he is one of two most famous novelists of the horror/action (sex/violence) genre. Unfortunately, for those who cannot read Japanese, his best works are among the ones which are available only as novels. Shinjuku seems to be his favorite setting.

Kikuchi is a graduate of Aoyama Gakuin. Has written over 240 novels.

Debut novel - Demon City Shinjuku in 1982.

Kikuchi is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, as evidenced in his Taimashin (novels and manga). He is a member of Mystery Writers of Japan, Inc.

Makai Toshi Hunter
魔界都市ハンター
drawn by Hosoma Shinichi 細馬信一
serialized on Shounen Champion, 1984-89
17 volumes @ Y380
[ 01:____| 02:____| 03:____| 04:____| 05:____| 06:____| 07:____| 08:____| 09:____]

Loosely based on the novel Makai Toshi <Shinjuku>. It had many interesting characters and fascinating ideas in the beginning but its ending was really lame. Hosoma Shinichi's art was adequate, but not spectacular. Recommended if you're interested in a nonsensical violence/fantasy/sci-fi mixture.
