Akiyoshi Hongo (本郷あきよし Hongō Akiyoshi?) is credited on all relevant media as the creator of the original concept and character designs for the anime and video game franchise, Digimon. However, not much is known about Akiyoshi as an individual. There are some possibilities that Akiyoshi Hongo could be a pseudonym for two persons: Aki Maita, the creator of the original Tamagotchi, and Takeichi Hongo, the principal officer of Tamagotchi for Bandai.
His name is sometimes spelled as "Akiyoshi Kongo", but this may be a typo.
