Hirohiko Araki (born Toshiyuki Araki), is the legendary manga-ka behind Jo Jos Bizarre Adventure, one of the longest-running manga series ever. He is well-known for his distinctive (read: FABULOUS!) art style, incredibly clever fights, and the fact he never ages. He's also almost perfectly symmetrical.

Tropes common in Araki's works beyond JJBA:

  • Costume Porn: Even for historical figures!
  • Gonk: Especially short fat people.
  • Kick the Dog: Almost literally, evil is frequently shown as something that likes to kill dogs or other animals.
  • Older Than They Look: There's a reason why fans think that Araki is immortal.
