Ken Wakui is a Japanese manga artist best known for his works Shinjuku Swan and Tokyo Revengers.

Wakui debuted with Shinjuku Swan in 2005 which became a notable commercial success and received multiple adaptations; the series concluded in 2013. His three shorter series, Abaddon, Budgerigar and Desert Eagle were released from 2010 to 2016.

Wakui’s most critically acclaimed work, Tokyo Revengers, was first published in 2017 and concluded in 2022; with more than 70 million copies in circulation, Tokyo Revengers has since become one of the best-selling manga of all time and it has been adapted into an anime series and several live-acton films.
