Kozue Amano (天野 こずえ, Amano Kozue, born 26 May 1974) is a female Japanese manga artist. She is widely known as the creator of Aria, which proved to be a best-selling hit,[1][2] and was adapted into an anime television series consisting of 3 seasons and 2 OVAs.

As of autumn 2010, Amano's work releases have been shifted from a monthly schedule to a seasonal one (every 3 months) owing to pregnancy and subsequent childcare.[3]
