Toshio Maeda (1953 - ) is a Hentai comic artist who was most prolific in the 80s and 90s. Maeda's works include the well known La Blue Girl, Adventure Kid, Demon Beast Invasion, Demon Warrior Koji and, his most famous work, Urotsukidoji (Legend of the Overfiend). Maeda is best known for the few works of his that have been animated, all of which—coincidentally—fall into the erotic horror subgenre. In the likes of La Blue Girl, Demon Beast Invasion and Urotsukidoji young women are frequently molested by multitentacled horrors. Maeda is credited with the proliferation of the tentacle rape genre and indeed has stated in an interview that he would like "Tentacle Master" inscribed on his tombstone. However, it should not be ignored that Maeda has done just as much sex comedy and BDSM-themed manga stories as erotic horror and even a few books perfectly suited for and targeted at younger readers. Early in his career, with the likes of Evil Spirit Island and Ashita-e Kick Off, he only provided the illustrations while someone else wrote the text for the manga.
