1959- . Pseudonym for Haruhiko Sato, also sometimes billed as "Hal," particularly in his signatures on illustrations. Born in Tokyo, he dropped out of college to become a character designer on such shows as Macross and Orguss. His distinctive, feather-haired females have made him one of the most popular designers in anime, and his later works have included Gunbuster and the computer-animated Blue Remains (on which his designs were recognizable but misused). He remains a popular illustrator, to the extent that, as with Masamune Shirow, his involvement on some productions is sometimes hyped beyond his actual role.
