est em[nb 1] (えすとえむ, Esu to emu,?, S and M) is the pen name of Maki Satoh,[2] a Japanese manga artist who debuted with three yaoi collections after being scouted in art school. She was a student of Matt Thorn, who provided translations for some of the English licenses of her work.[3] Her work has been praised as having unusual maturity and depth, both for yaoi and for manga in general. She is currently working on non-yaoi manga.[3]

Two of her first manga have been released in English by Aurora Publishing, which is a direct subsidiary of the Japanese publishing company Ohzora Shuppan,[4] the original publishers of one of the works in question. A third has been licensed by Net Comics.
