Seishi Kishimoto (岸本 聖史 Kishimoto Seishi?, born November 8, 1974) is a Japanese manga artist and the younger twin brother of Masashi Kishimoto (creator of Naruto). Seishi created the manga 666 Satan, which was serialized in Japan by Monthly Shōnen Gangan and licensed by VIZ in North America as O-Parts Hunter. In 2008 he launched a new manga titled Blazer Drive in Monthly Shōnen Rival magazine.[1]

Styles and influences

Both Seishi and Masashi have been drawing manga together since early childhood, thus their styles are similar. As a result, each of them has frequently been accused of copying the other. Seishi himself notes that the similarities are not intentional but are likely because they were both influenced by many of the same things. On closer inspection, however, it can be noted that there are subtle but definite differences in their styles and themes, with several readers stating that Seishi's stories have just a hint more darkness. Also, several interesting, and often funny, tid-bits of his day-to-day life are sometimes included along the pages, like in 666 Satan, creating an impression of familiarity and friendship with his readers. As a result of the "copy-cat" accusations, the more famous Masashi even asked fans to stop calling Seishi a "copycat."[2][3]
