Atsushi Ōkubo (Japanese: 大久保 篤, Hepburn: Ōkubo Atsushi, born September 20, 1979), also romanized as Atsushi Ohkubo, is a Japanese manga author and fantasy artist known for his work on the manga series Soul Eater and Fire Force, both of which have been adapted into anime. Okubo worked as an assistant under Rando Ayamine, on the manga series GetBackers. He also created artwork for the video game TCG Lord of Vermilion, as well as some character designs in Bravely Default.
Ōkubo was not a model student and was more attracted to drawing than to learning. At the age of 20, after finishing studies at a manga school where he met Rando Ayamine, the artist of Get Backers, he became Rando Ayamine's assistant for two years. Finally, he won a competition at Square Enix's Gangan magazine with his first manga series B.Ichi and it was published in four volumes. After the end of his last manga, he created Soul Eater, still for Gangan, which brought him worldwide success. After that, he explored a little bit more of Soul Eater's world in Soul Eater Not!, a side story to the main series that ended in 5 volumes. In 2015, he started working on Fire Force, published in Weekly Shōnen Magazine, making it the first weekly manga Ōkubo has done.
