Yoshihiro Togashi is the creator of Level E, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Hunter X Hunter. Married to Naoko Takeuchi, with whom he has recently[when?] had his second child. Has recently[when?] been taking several long hiatuses for undisclosed reasons, but poor health, Creator Breakdown mixed with editor attempts at Executive Meddling and/or a focus on home life are the most frequent guesses. His art has also become very crude and Off-Model, usually corrected by the time it releases into a compiled Tankoubon.
Strangely, Togashi is the highest-paid mangaka in Jump's payroll, and has the ability to take the hiatuses which he's famous for without consequence. This has been referred to as "Togashi-ism", and the only other person employed by Shueisha who has such favorable contract conditions is Kyosuke Usuta, author of Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar.
