Takeshi Koike (小池健 Koike Takeshi?) (born January 26, 1968) is a Japanese studio animator, illustrator and film director. Something of a protégée of Yoshiaki Kawajiri, he went straight from a high school education to beginning his career at Madhouse as an in-betweener on works directed by Kawajiri after being interviewed by him.[1] His first professional work as director is the title sequence of the 2000 film Party 7; the first feature-length Redline, which premièred in 2009. Work outside of animation includes the artwork for the 2004 Dreams Come True single "Yasashii Kiss o Shite".[2]
