Chiaki J. Konaka (小中 千昭, Konaka Chiaki) (born April 4, 1961) is a Japanese writer and scenarist best known for Serial Experiments Lain and later for the Digimon season Digimon Tamers. He is also known to be the creator of Ultraman Gaia, as cited by Tsuburaya Productions. Konaka's serious works generally have a dark, psychological tone. As a Cthulhu Mythos writer, he tends to add Lovecraftian elements to his works."Chiaki J. Konaka" is a very unusual name, as Japanese names typically do not include middle names. Konaka states that the "J." evokes the "Christian" name "John", due to him being born to parents who were members of the Anglican Church, but he does not identify as Christian. He began using the "J." at the age of 12, when he began making 8 mm films; he patterned the style after Western names such as "Charles M. Schulz".He has cited Ghost Hound as his favorite screenwriting project.
