Kodama Ameko (児玉雨子) is a Japanese lyricist. She began her career in 2011 writing the opening theme for the SATV program Kopinks!. She has since written lyrics for various idols including Hello! Project and other UP-FRONT WORKS artists.
Kodama Ameko was born on December 21, 1993 in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan.
In 2011, while she was in her second and third year of high school, Kodama wrote her first full length novel and sent it in for the 35th Subaru Literary Award by Shueisha, but it only passed through to the secondary selection. At the same time, she was asked to write the first opening theme song for Kopinks! by an acquaintance who was a producer for the show. She wrote "Carina Notte" which was sung by Miyamoto Karin as the character Kopink. From then on, Kodama became the lyricist for all Kopinks! theme songs.
Sometime before 2014, Kodama saw a Nanba Kazumi no Idol Sanjuuroku Bou show at Tower Records in Shibuya and met Hashimoto Shin, the recording director of UP-FRONT WORKS, who asked her to work together. In her first year, none of her lyrics were used or were irregularly fixed by another lyricist such as NOBE before being sent through. The first songs that were taken directly from Kodama were "Otome no Gyakushuu" and "Itooshikutte Gomen ne", which she quickly wrote the lyrics for both within one to two days.
