Shintaro Kago (駕籠 真太郎; Kago Shintarō), born 1969 in Tokyo, Japan, is a Japanese guro manga artist. He debuted in 1988 on the magazine COMIC BOX.


Shintaro Kago's style has been called "fashionable paranoia". He has been published in several adult manga magazines, gaining him considerable popularity. Many of his manga have strongly satirical overtones, and deal with grotesque subjects such as extreme sex, scatology and body modification.

He has also written Sci-Fi non-guro manga, most notably Super-Conductive Brains Parataxis (超伝脳パラタクシス, Choutennou Paratakushisu) for Weekly Young Jump. Many of his shorts are experimental and bizarre. He frequently breaks the fourth wall, and he likes to play with the page layout in extreme ways, mostly for comedic effect.


On April 4, 2006 an exhibition of his works, called "Unsanitary Condition Exhibition" (不衛生博覧会, Fueisei Hakurankai) was opened. Similarly, in the same month the first edition of his personal movie convention called "Shit Film Festival" (うんこ映画祭, Unko Eigasai) was held by him. From September 3–15, 2007, the Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo held another exhibition of his works, called "Unsanitary Festival in the Cool of the Night" (納涼不衛生まつり, "Nōryō fueisei matsuri".)
