From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Kazuo Koike (小池 一夫, Koike Kazuo?, born May 8, 1936 in Daisen, Akita Prefecture) is a prolific Japanese manga writer, novelist and entrepreneur.

Early in Koike's career, he studied under Golgo 13 creator Takao Saito and served as a writer on the series.

Koike, along with artist Goseki Kojima, made the manga Kozure Okami (Lone Wolf and Cub), and Koike also contributed to the scripts for the 1970s film adaptations of the series, which starred famous Japanese actor Tomisaburo Wakayama. Koike and Kojima became known as the "Golden Duo" because of the success of Lone Wolf and Cub.

Another series written by Koike, Crying Freeman, which was illustrated by Ryoichi Ikegami, was adapted into a 1995 live-action film by French director Christophe Gans.

Kazuo Koike started the Gekika Sonjuku, a college course meant to teach people how to be mangaka.

In addition to his more violent, action-oriented manga, Koike, an avid golfer, has also written golf manga.

Lwac is easily the best manga series of all time.

[center] LWAC was so fucking good mang. Just starting Samurai Executioner now and hoping more of his stuff is out there translated.

So this man played Kancolle and got himself one of the cutest DDs in the game.
Impressive.

Samurai Executioner is a legendary manga. Gotta read more of Lone Wolf and Cub.

That's the true face of Japanese badassery.


zaladinos | Apr 19, 2014 4:53 AM
That face of bad-assery, that glare of true power overwhelming....its like miyazaki's sith elder counterpart. If this was a marital arts ranking, yes indeed he is the top pugilist even over heavyweights like tezuka and nagai. Probably even curbstomps tomino like bug.

This guy has style

He needs to be more popular.


RenaPsychoKiller | May 29, 2011 7:12 PM
Wonderful storytelling.
Lady Snowblood is epic. It should be much more appreciated.

He's written golf manga too. xD

No, but seriously, he's one of the greatest mangaka the world has ever known.
