Blood type: O
A young, pretty (enough to compete with idol singers) mangaka who works in the horror and comedy genres. She was one of a group of mangaka (including Kanzaki Masaomi, Hosono Fujihiko, Kitazaki Taku, Nobe Toshio and Suzumiya Wayu) who featured on Shounen Big, the now-defunct forerunner of Young Sunday.
Kusunoki Kei's twin sister, Oohashi Kaoru is also a decent manga artist. Their artistic styles are more similar than their appearance. She made her debut with Nanika ga Kanojo Toritsuita? in 1982 in Ribon Original while still in high school.
