Born in Okinawa, Japan.

Mitsutoshi made his debut in 1996 in Weekly Shounen Jump and received a Akatsuka Award for best new humorous manga cartoonist writer for his series Seikimatsu Leader den Takeshi!(1997–2002, 24 volumes), for which he also won the 2001 Shogakukan Manga Award for children's manga.

In 2002, Mitsutoshi was arrested and convicted of violating child prostitution laws, including paying a 16-year-old girl ¥80,000 to have sex. As a result of the arrest, Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi! was cancelled by Weekly Shounen Jump, but the sentence was suspended after 2 days and he was free to go.

In 2004, Mitsutoshi returned to manga with a sports/comedy manga, Ring, which continued for 3 volumes (24 chapters) in Super Jump magazine.

Mitsutoshi's next series was Toriko, which was serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump from 2008 to 2016. It was nominated for the 2nd Manga Taisho Award in 2009 but did not win.

This whole comment section is basically MAL in a nutshell.

@Sukamii He was arrested once because he paid a 16 year old girl apparently to do "lewd acts", it has never been said that he did after nor before that, he also did it through a website in which it was impossible for us to prove if he knew or not about the girl being underaged, so it would be unfair to say that he always knew that.

@Rukakochan the mangaka is a genuine pedophile and has on numerous occasions had sex with underage prostitutes with full knowledge of them being minors

@mirishster96 sure, making shitty manga is bad and all but I do not think that it is worthy of sending someone to jail

Build king was good, old-school manga. It can't be said that it was worse than first 20 chapters of one piece or dragon ball.
