About the Author

Gege Akutami

Born in 1992 in Iwate Prefecture. In 1999, Akutami was a champion in a death game that involved taking turns rubbing medication used for treating insect bites on one's nether regions, for which he attracted a lot of attention and had to disappear for a while. In 2014, Akutami began his manga career with Kamishiro Sosa (God Age Investigation). He claims to have no memory of that time.

At present, in 2020, Jujutsu Kaisen is being serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump. People say it’s one of the "three great works inspiring déjà vu in Japan."

In 2015, Kitaguni made his authorial debut with Apricot Red. Kitaguni hides this information from his relatives.

At present, in 2020, Kitaguni is supposed to be working on a novelization but is distracted by the idea of someone rubbing medication for insect bites on their nether regions in a death game...
