Takeshi Kimura (木村 武,   Kimura Takeshi) was a Japanese screenwriter who wrote many of Toho's non-Godzilla tokusatsu films during the Showa era. Unlike his contemporary Shinichi Sekizawa, whose screenplays were noted for their lighthearted and "fun" tone, Kimura's screenplays were comparatively more gloomy and contained more political themes. Kimura considered his screenplay for Ishiro Honda's Matango to be his best work, and was considerably less enthusiastic about his later work, for which he wrote under the pseudonym Kaoru Mabuchi (馬淵薫,   Mabuchi Kaoru). Kimura passed away on May 3, 1987, due to a throat obstruction.
