I am author Kazuo Koike. AMA!
Some of the popular work I have written include Lone Wolf and Cub (Artist; Goseki Kojima), Lady Snowblood (Artist; Kazuo Kamimura), Crying Freeman (Artist; Ryoichi Ikegami), Goyokiba [Hanzo the Razor] (Artist; Takeshi Kanda), Kōkōsei Burai Hikae (Artist; Keiji Yoshitani) and Auction House (Artist; Seisaku Kanou) and co-authored X-Men Unlimited Vol 1 #50 with Kengo Kaji (Artist; Paul Smith)
In 1977 I founded the Gekiga Sonjuku educational program. Some of the students I have taught Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2), Tetsuo Hara (Fist of the North Star), Yuji Horii (Dragon Quest series), Keisuke Itagaki (Baki the Grappler) and Hiroshi Shiibashi (Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan). I hope to keep on teaching my craft to the next generation of authors and artists.
Thank you very much for the questions! I had a wonderful time with you!
