Kazuhiko Shimamoto

Kazuhiko Shimamoto (島本 和彦 Shimamoto Kazuhiko?, born Hidehiko Tezuka (手塚 秀彦 Tezuka Hidehiko?) April 26, 1961 in Ikeda (early childhood in Obihiro, Hokkaidō, Japan) is a Japanese manga artist. He attended college at the Osaka University of Arts in the fine arts department. While in college in 1982, he debuted in the February special issue of Shōnen Sunday with Hissatsu no Denkousei. At this point he dropped out of college and devoted his energies to becoming a manga artist.

Shimamoto is responsible for several long-running and well-known manga series. He drew Honō no Tenkōsei, as well as the Moeyo Pen saga, which began as a 1 volume comic, but was continued in two more series totaling 24 volumes. He also worked with Shotaro Ishinomori on a Skull Man manga based on Ishinomori's originally intended storyline, which was licensed in the US by tokyopop. His baseball manga Gyakkyou Nine was adapted into a live-action Japanese film.

His past assistants include Katsu Aki, Masaaki Fujihara, Eisaku Kubonouchi, and Tetsuo Sanjou.
