Seda (世田) family name, Kai-ichi (介一) first name, (1933-19**)
An editor, artist, writer, and kinbakushi, Kai-ichi Seda began his career as an enthusiast during the latter half of the 1960s, contributing to the magazine Kitan Club under the name Sakae Nakamiya. In 1977, after Kitan Club ceased publication, he began his own limited-circulation magazine, Sun & Moon, while still working as a contributor to other S&M magazines. Afterward, though he still worked publishing articles in a large number of magazines, his work was concentrated in fanzines directed towards a core audience of enthusiasts, making him known as the bridge between Kitan Club and the later scene. His artistic works are published under the name Yasushi Arakawa.
