Akira Kanbe (かんべあきら Kanbe Akira?) is a Japanese manga artist from Hyōgo Prefecture, known for his work as the illustrator of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Episode Zero, specializes in the yaoi genre.

Leroy Dessaroux described Kanbe as being "unusually good at figure drawing", especially drawing people during sex acts.[1] Active Anime's Rachel Bentham commends Hot Limit's art as "racy, sexy and hot",[2] and has praised Kanbe's skill at drawing "subtle facial expressions".[3]
