Shinmei Kenji (better known as Kenji) is a programmer, who participated in the founding of Studio Twinkle, Black Package, and Edge Co., Ltd..

He was originally employed by Kirara, when he was only 17 years old, but then left with several staff to Discovery. On the side, he worked on games from Birdy Soft and Orange House.

After internal disputes at Discovery, he and several Birdy Soft staff (whom he knew from Kirara) founded Studio Twinkle. Around the time of Bunretsu Shugoshin Twinkle Star, there was conflict within the company, which lead to Kenji leaving and returning to Discovery.

In 1995, he and several other staff (namely Donovan) left and founded Black Package, and Edge Co., Ltd. in 1996, where he still works to this day.
