Ito Ōgure (大暮 維人; born 1972-02-22 in Hyuga, Miyazaki, Japan), pen name Oh! great, is a Japanese mangaka most recognized for the manga series Tenjho Tenge and recently Air Gear. In 2006, he received the Kodansha Manga Award for shōnen for Air Gear.[1]

Characteristics of Ito's style include violent plots, the use of English words amidst kanji and the constant use of beautiful female characters. Ito also created the adult series Silky Whip and apart from working with manga, he designed some of the alternate character outfits in the PlayStation 2 version of Namco's 3D fighting game Tekken 5.

His pseudonym "Oh! great" is a play on words. His name written in Japanese order (family name before given name) is "Ōgure Ito", which is pronounced similarly to the Japanese rendering of the English words "Oh great". Furthermore, "Oh" can mean "king" in Japanese, making it possible to read the name as "the great king".

He designed the Soul Calibur IV character Ashlotte.
