Seishi Kishimoto

Seishi Kishimoto (born November 8, 1974) is a Japanese manga


artist and the younger twin brother of Masashi Kishimoto (creator
of Naruto). The two have been drawing manga together since early
childhood, thus their styles are similar. As a result, each of them
has frequently been accused of copying the other. Seishi himself
notes that the similarities are not intentional but are likely because
they were both influenced by many of the same things. The more
famous Masashi even asked fans to stop calling Seishi a "copycat.
Seishi created the manga 666 Satan, which was serialized in Japan
by Monthly Shōnen Gangan and licensed by VIZ in North America
as O-Parts Hunter. It has been announced that he will launch a new
manga titled Blazer Driver in the upcoming Monthly.
