Kuroda Iou (黒田硫黄 Kuroda Iō, January 5, 1971 - ) is the pen name of a Japanese manga artist. Born in Sapporo as one of two twins, Kuroda moved many times in his youth. The pen name "Kuroda Iou" (in Japanese order) is a combination of his family name (Kuroda) and the name of a toy robot, Mars King (Kasei Daiō). Kuroda + Kasei Daiō -> Kurodaiō -> Kuroda Iō.
Kuroda's works are known for their dynamic plot developments and the rhythm of their stories. His drawings are widely praised for their almost magical appeal. Elephants, cameras, bicycles, ships, robots, and cooking are common themes in Kuroda's manga.
