MAEDA TOSHIO

Independent Manga Artist

Born September 17, 1953 in Osaka

Maeda Toshio is a controversial erotic manga artist whose work was most prolific in the 1980s and 90s. Several of Maeda's works have been used as a basis for Original Video Animations including the well-known La Blue Girl, Adventure Kid, Demon Beast Invasion, Demon Warrior Koji and his most famous work, Urotsukidōji (Legend of the Overfiend), One interviewer commented that Urotsukidōji "firmly placed him in the history books - in Japan and abroad - as the pioneer of the genre known as hentai, or perverted".

Maeda was a Guest of Honor at the Big Apple Anime Fest (BAAF) held in New York City in October 2001. He was acclaimed as "the most influential erotic manga artist in Japan" and his masterpiece Urotsukidoji was described as "the foundation for the entire 'erotic-grotesque' genre of Japanese anime". Maeda was the keynote speaker at the BAAF Symposium and introduced a retrospective of his work.
