Occupation Manga artist

Hideaki Sorachi (空知 英秋 Sorachi Hideaki, born May 25, 1979) is a Japanese manga artist best known for his work Gintama.

Sorachi became interested in manga during his childhood. However, during the 4th grade he showed his manga work to his father who immediately laughed at him, after which he abandoned his dream of being a manga artist. After graduating from college, he couldn't find a job and began drawing manga again to make money. He was able to live from his first work Dandelion, which was featured in the first volume of Gintama, along with a prologue from Sorachi calling it his first official work.

Kenta Shinohara (author of Sket Dance) used to be his assistant,[1] as well as Yōichi Amano (author of Akaboshi: Ibun Suikoden). Gintama and Sket Dance had a crossover chapter in Weekly Shōnen Jump which was the 349th for Gintama and the 180th for Sket Dance.

Sorachi has appeared both in the manga and anime of Gintama, several times as a monkey/ape.
