Shuichi Shigeno (しげの 秀一 Shigeno Shūichi?, born March 8, 1958) is a Japanese manga artist famous for creating Initial D. Shigeno has also created Bari Bari Densetsu, Dopkan, and Tunnel Nuketara Sky Blue ("First Love in Summer") all prior to the manga that would make him famous in 1995. In 1985, he received the Kodansha Manga Award in shōnen for Bari Bari Densetsu.
He owns a 1980s Toyota Sprinter Trueno with a panda white color scheme, like Initial D's main character Takumi. He also owns a Sonic Blue Mica-colored 1999 WRX Type STi Version 6 with a STi sports bumper (a part from the STi sport catalogue made to look like the 22B STi bumper but fits non-wide body Imprezas) just like Takumi's father, Bunta. One of his notable students is Jyoji Morikawa, creator of Hajime no Ippo.
