• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Yoshihiro Togashi is the creator of Level E, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Hunter X Hunter. Married to Naoko Takeuchi, with whom he has recently had his second child. Has recently been taking several long hiatuses for undisclosed reasons, but poor health, Creator Breakdown mixed with editor attempts at Executive Meddling and/or a focus on home life are the most frequent guesses. His art has also become very crude and Off-Model, usually corrected by the time it releases into a compiled Tankoubon.

Strangely Togashi is the highest-paid mangaka in Jump's payroll, and has the ability to take the hiatuses which he's famous for without consequence. This has been referred to as "Togashi-ism", and the only other person employed by Shueisha who has such favorable contract conditions is Kyosuke Usuta, author of Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar.

The other thing Togashi is famous for is his gratuitous amounts of Ho Yay in his work- and not because he sells more manga that way; GLBT topics are one of his personal interests.

The artist he is most inspired by is H. R. Giger, which should tell you something about his own predilections.
