    Nobuhiro Watsuki was born on May 16, 1970 in Nagaoka, Niigata prefecture, Japan. When he was a kid, he enjoyed reading comic books, such as The X-Men, and he uses many of the X-men's character designs in his works.

    In Middle school, Watsuki joined a kendo club, but he himself has admitted that he was not very good, and has never been very physical.

    In 1994, Watsuki became famous for his manga Rurouni Kenshin, and the series went off to span 28 volumes, a 51 episode anime series, a spin off, a CD, and three movies. The Rurouni Kenshin Series ended in 1999 though, and he began working on other manga, such as GUN BLAZE WEST (cancelled after three volumes) and Buso Renkin (which spanned a total of ten Volumes.)
