Are Araki Hitoshi (from Hana to Ryuu) and Araki Masanori (from Kizuna) the same person with differently translated names?? They look the same, but Hitoshi works for a politician and Masanori works for a yakuza don...but then again I've never heard of Masa having any relatives.
I hope they're different people b/c I really love Masa with Kai in Kizuna, and I think Hitoshi and Ryuu are good together too. Though if they are the same, I'd have to pick Masa & Kai...but then again they have 11 volumes while Hitoshi and Ryuu only have 5 chapters so far.
So anyway, if someone knows the difference between the two Araki's, please let me know!!
