    Notes: At times serious. At times fun. Shiuko Kano is a prominent yaoi mangaka noted for her often audacious depictions of the sweet and dangerous relationships between men. She first debuted as a cover illustrator under the name Uida Shouko for the Japanese publisher MagazineMagazine's June imprint. Her manga debut was Heisei Paradise Boys (MagazineMagazine). In 1999 she changed her pen name from Uida Shouko to Kano Shiuko as a pioneer of hardcore sexual stories and enigmatic character. Her first art book and popular work, I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone, was published by MagazineMagazine. She was also the character designer along with her equally popular BL mangaka sister (Kazuna Uchida) for a popular BL called Escape.

    She has or had 2 dogs profiled on her official website Studio E-Kennel, whom she calls the Tsureshon Brothers.
