[[caption-width:199:Kobayashi-sensei[[note]]In what seems to be the only photo of her on the Internet.[[/note]].]]

Yasuko Kobayashi is a writer in the {{Tokusatsu}} industry. Starting her career as a sub-writer in ''Series/TokusouRoboJanperson''[[note]]''Only'' #40.[[/note]], she became well known from 2000 on as the writer of ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'', ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', ''Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'', ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'', and ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''.

She notably puts an active effort into creating Tokusatsu stories which appeal to the target and {{periphery demographic}}s alike.

Has an [[{{Analysis/YasukoKobayashi}} Analysis page]] which would benefit from a large rewrite.
