Yakitate!! Japan - Takashi Hashiguchi - Netflix

Takashi Hashiguchi (橋口 たかし, Hashiguchi Takashi, born June 2, 1967 in Tokyo) is a Japanese manga artist. He is best known for his manga series Yakitate!! Japan, for which he won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōnen in 2004. Hashiguchi won a newcomer's award in 1987 (published in a magazine), and Combat Teacher debuted the following year in the same magazine. A prevailing theme seen throughout his manga is the realization of childhood dreams, such as making bread in Yakitate!! Japan or becoming a yo-yo master in Super Yo-Yo. Hashiguchi mainly focuses on unusual occupations or sports. He enjoys comedy as well, and took a brief interlude from drawing to try his luck as a comedian.
