Akinobu Uraka (有楽 彰展 Uraka Akinobu?, born September 22, 1977 in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan) is a Japanese manga artist most well known for creating Tokyo Underground. Uraka won one of two grand prizes (the other winner being Diachiken Ise) at the 4th Enix 21st Century Manga Awards in 1997 for his work Yojō Mahō Shoriban.[1][2] This story was later published in the February 1997 issue of Monthly G Fantasy.

In 2002, Tokyo Underground was adapted into an anime TV series aired on TV Tokyo. Uraka made a cameo appearance as a student in the first episode of that series.
