Akifumi Kaneko (金子 彰史 Kaneko Akifumi?) is one of the co-creators of the Senki Zesshō Symphogear series, along with Noriyasu Agematsu. Akifumi serves as the script writer and supervisor for the series, and the writer for the manga adaptation of S1.
Akifumi has also contributed to various other series, such as the Wild Arms series.
Akifumi wrote the scenarios for each Symphogear season, based upon various ideas proposed to him by Noriyasu, his friend. For the first season, Noriyasu ended up with enough concepts for a 2-cour series; however, because King Records said they would only fund a 1-cour anime series, Akifumi had to cut and rewrite several ideas, some of which were recycled in later seasons.
Each season's script has been written by Akifumi, up until AXZ, where various other writers took over when Akifumi had to be hospitalized. The script for XV was also written by other contributors before being edited and approved by Akifumi.
