Yuzo Takada (高田裕三, Takada Yūzō, born March 21, 1963 in Edogawa, Tokyo) is the pseudonym of Yūji Takada (高田裕次, Takada Yūji), a popular Japanese manga artist. He worked as an assistant for manga artist Fujihiko Hosono before starting his career as an original author. His first work appeared in November 1983 in Young Magazine, and his first series Tokonatsu Bank started in that publication in January 1984 and ran until February 1985.

Takada is better known for his supernatural manga 3x3 Eyes and Blue Seed, and for the comedy-action manga All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku. The anime versions of these series star voice-actress Megumi Hayashibara. In 1993, he won the Kodansha Manga Award for shōnen for 3x3 Eyes.[1]

Takada has also worked on character design and illustration for video games, including Enix's Just Breed.
