Igarashi, Daisuke

Given name: 大介
Family name: 五十嵐
Birthday: Apr 2, 1969

Birthplace: Saitama Prefecture, Japan
Zodiac: Aries
Gender: Male

Debuted with Ohayashi ga kikoeru rear (お囃子が聞こえる日) in 1994.

Igarashi is known among manga fans for his bold, detailed art style and innovative storytelling. While his works are often described as fantastical, they can hardly be categorized as traditional fantasy stories; instead, Igarashi draws inspiration from folklore and nature combined with surrealism and spiritual themes to create a style that has earned comparisons to the films of Hayao Miyazaki (Igarashi himself stated in an interview that Miyazaki's film My Neighbor Totoro was a key influence on his decision to become a manga artist).

I truly love his wonderful work Kaijuu no Kodomo and I hope the upcoming movie adaptation by Studio 4°C will be a great way for people to dive into the imaginative worlds by Igarashi and maybe try out his manga.
