Hitoshi Ashinano (芦奈野ひとし Ashinano Hitoshi?, born April 25, 1963) is a Japanese manga artist. He is most noted for Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō, for which he won Afternoon magazine's Four Seasons Award for debut works[citation needed] and the 2007 Seiun Award for Best Science Fiction Manga.[1] Another notable work is PositioN. He has also been known to create dōjinshi under the name "suke".[citation needed] Prior to his debut, Ashinano worked as an assistant to manga artist Kōsuke Fujishima.[2]

His work also usually has a rather laid-back, nostalgic feel with undertones of mystery; there are frequent stretches with little or no dialogue.[citation needed] Many of his works are also notable for their strong, independent female protagonists.
