Kiyoshi knight

Fukuda has published many one-shots but none have been serialized. He had a one-shot appearing in Akamaru Jump, the same time Ashirogi Muto's Money and Intelligence and Niizuma's Crow appeared in it. It only got 5th Place. He also had a one-shot, Kiyoshi Knight, in the Golden Future Cup. He was asked to tone it down, and he redid it six times. It tied for first place with Detective Trap. It didn't get serialized because it was better as a one-shot than a series. Later it gets serialized. When Ashirogi Muto's PCP became serialized, Fukada published Road Racer Giri as a one-shot. Fukada wrapped up Kiyoshi, in order to serialize Giri.
