    Buronson started his career in the early 70's at Weekly Shonen Jump, as an assistant to Hiroshi Motomiya. His first hit for that magazine was Doberman Deka (1975-1979) at which point he began working for many other magazines and publishers, where he used a new penname. His biggest hit was Hokuto no Ken (1983-1988), the creation of a young Tetsuo Hara and Buronson's last Jump serialization. After this his Buronson penname was no longer Shueisha-exclusive but more based on the genre of work. He wrote for many artists, both famous and relative unknowns, but since HnK his most frequent collaborator has been Ryoichi Ikegami in Big Comic Superior. He is still credited for HnK spin-off's in an executive role but does not actually write them apart from the rare one-shot. They are published through Hara's company, Coamix.
