Kaori Yuki (由貴 香織里, Yuki Kaori, born December 18 in Tokyo, Japan) is a Japanese manga artist best known for her gothic manga such as Earl Cain, its sequel Godchild, and Angel Sanctuary. Yuki debuted professionally in 1987 with "Ellie in Summer Clothes" (夏服のエリー, Natsufuku no Erii), which ran in the manga anthology Bessatsu Hana to Yume published by Hakusensha, after placing in one of the many contests held by Hana to Yume. Her work is typically serialized in one of Hakusensha's two shōjo manga anthologies, Bessatsu Hana to Yume and Hana to Yume. In 2010, Kaori Yuki was one of many manga artists whose work would appear in the new shōjo manga anthology Aria by the publisher Kodansha on July 28, 2010.
Kaori Yuki is a pen name; originally she had chosen "Eri Minase" but then decided on "Kao Yuki," derived from the actress Yuki Saito, with the addition of a "Ri" character for the pen name "Kaori Yuki."
