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.
