Short biography
Tsugumi Ohba is the author of the manga series Death Note. The only details known about his/her life are, as stated at the beginning of every volume of Death Note, that (s)he collects teacups, develops manga plots while holding his/her knees on a chair, and was born in Tokyo. His/her true identity is unknown, but several clues in the manga suggest that "Tsugumi Ohba" is the pen name of Hiroshi Gamō, known as an author of gag manga, which is in contrast with Death Note's dark tone, making this connection either very likely or much less likely, depending on which angle you look at it.
