Kazuki Nakashima

Kazuki Nakashima (中島かずき, Nakashima Kazuki, born August 19, 1959) is a Japanese novelist, screenwriter and playwright born in Fukuoka, Japan.

Nakashima's works were consisted of plays and novels such as Oh! Edo Rocket, Yamikagishi, Lost Seven and the Opera Susano Sword of the Devil series. He also wrote screenplays for television shows such as Gurren Lagann, Re: Cutie Honey (which are both made by Gainax, while the latter is co-produced by Toei Animation), Nodame Cantabile Finale, Kamen Rider W, Kamen Rider Fourze and Kill la Kill.

Nakashima's role as story editor in the Harmony Unleashed media franchise is credited and made for Harmony Unleashed: Spirit Brony High (as produced by Tatsunoko and Production I.G and directed by Tetsuro Araki) and he will write the japanese version screenplay and scenario for the upcoming television series, Harmony Unleashed: Equestria Campus Supremacy, as well as collaborating with Shotaro Suga on the Anthro Bunraku/Equestria Girls crossover films for the Japanese version.

Montalvo considered Nakashima as the "Japanese Joss Whedon", similar to comparing Gen Urobuchi to David S. Goyer (because of how the controversy of Madoka Magica can relate to Man of Steel), and Ichiro Okouchi to Shane Black or Travis Beacham (because of how Okouchi does both comedy and supernatural action/mecha and how is impossible to compare Okouchi to Goyer because of the latter not doing comedy screenplay).
