Kozue Matsumoto (松本梢江, Matsumoto Kozue) is a fictional character from anime and manga series of Baki the Grappler. She is Baki Hanma's schoolmate and the daughter of Baki's landlady. Kozue is also his girlfriend in further part of the series.


She is Baki's girlfriend and her mother, Kinuyo Matsumoto, is Baki's landlord. She cares deeply for Baki, but denies when asked. She is disillusioned by Baki's violent life as an Underground fighter and begs him several times to quit. Though she still disapproves, Kozue better understands Baki's resolve after visiting Emi Akezawa's grave site. After Baki's first tournament match, he reveals that he cares for Kozue. She became his love interest in the second series, and makes love with him just before his fight with Yanagi Ryuukou, allowing Baki to become a "full man".
