    Tadashi Agi is the penname used by the best-selling brother and sister duo Shin and Yuko Kibayashi. Veteran writers the Kibayashi's debuted on the Japanese scene with the award-winning and best-selling comic series Kindaichi's Case Files (published in English by Tokyopop). Agi's next hit was the series GetBackers, which would cement the pair as Japan's most innovative thriller mystery writers of the early part of the new century.GetBackers success would extend across the globe becoming a strong seller in the US, selling approximately 200,000 units. Lifetime Agi's works would amass to millions of units in Japan and nearly 300,000 units sold in the US.

    Yuko and Shin Kibayashi are also well regarded wine enthusists who were also voted one of Decanter magazine's 50 most influencial people in the wine industry in 2009. They have been featured in interviews with the New York Times, CNN, and Wine Aficionado regarding global wine trends.
    The First Apostle

    This third collection is a feast for all the senses as rival brothers close in and ultimately select their first vintages to nominate as heaven-sent wines known amongst critical circles as the Twelve Apostles to the Drops of God. Visually detailing the finer points of real European labels allowing readers to not only read about these fine drinks but also potentially partake in them.

    The hunt is on! Shizuku and his adopted brother Issei have both selected their choices for the First Great Wine Apostle. Now they have to actually acquire these wines. Crossing the globe to meet with the winemakers and critics that know these casts inside and out. But will either one of these two know why Yutaka Kanzaki selected the winning wine? The message behind it may shatter the conscious of at least one challenger, for there is more to wine appreciation than just wine value.

    There are messages attached to these heaven sent wines. Shizuku's father selected them to help bring his family closer together through wine, even if it meant having to do so while he was no longer on this plane. The blood and wine will continue to flow, but who will appreciate it the most in the end?
