Kinoko Nasu (奈須 きのこ, Nasu Kinoko, male,[1] born 28 November 1973) is a Japanese author, best known for writing the light novel The Garden of Sinners and visual novels Tsukihime and Fate/stay night, and a co-founder of Type-Moon. He graduated from Hosei University with a major in human science.


Together with his junior high school classmate and friend Takashi Takeuchi, Nasu formed Type-Moon in 2000, originally as a dōjin group to create the visual novel Tsukihime, which soon gained immense popularity. His influences include Hideyuki Kikuchi, Yukito Ayatsuji, Soji Shimada, Natsuhiko Kyogoku, Kenji Takemoto,[2] Ken Ishikawa[3] and Yasuhiro Nightow.[4]

After the success of Tsukihime, Type-Moon became a commercial organization. A sequel to Tsukihime, Kagetsu Tohya, was released in August 2001. On 28 January 2004, Type-Moon released Fate/stay night, written by Nasu; it, too, gained great success, becoming one of the most popular visual novels on the day of its release. A sequel to Fate/stay night, Fate/hollow ataraxia, was released on 28 October 2005. Nasu's visual novel work has been adapted to extremely popular manga and anime series.
