Kōji Kumeta (久米田 康治, Kumeta Kōji, born September 5, 1967) is a Japanese gag manga artist. His most famous works are Go!! Southern Ice Hockey Club, Katte ni Kaizō, Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, and Joshiraku. The bulk of Kumeta's work was published in Weekly Shōnen Sunday, until the abrupt cancellation of Katte ni Kaizō, which resulted in him transferring from Shogakukan to Kodansha. As of 2014, he has gone freelance. Two of Kumeta's latest serializations include Sekkachi Hakushaku to Jikan Dorobō, published in Weekly Shōnen Magazine from November 2013 to January 2015, and Nankuru Neesan (art by Yasu), published in Kodansha's Young Magazine the 3rd from February 2016 to February 2019. He is currently serializing Studio Pulp for Rakuen Le Paradis of Hakusensha and Kakushigoto in Monthly Shōnen Magazine.

Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei was his first work to be adapted into an anime and it was awarded the 31st Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category.[1]
