1947- . Sometimes miscredited as Kunio Daikawara. A designer on parts of the Time Bokan Series and Votoms, but best known as the founding father of "real robot design," which strives to make robots credible as real machines made by humans, instead of the quasi-magical creations of the 1970s. Okawara is hence credited with the trend for more scientifically plausible robots-as-vehicles-beginning with his own work on Gundam, and continuing with other "real robot" shows such as Dougram: Fang of the Sun, Votoms, SPT Layzner, Vifam, and Dragonar. Okawara also designed more traditional fantasy super-robots for the Brave Saga.
