1934-2004. Born in Kobe, he left high school and worked for four months in a bank before quitting to become a manga artist. He is one of the most influential manga artists of the post-war era, fully deserving of consideration alongside Osamu Tezuka and Shotaro Ishinomori, although his role specifically in anime is largely limited to that of the creator of a couple of important titles. With Gigantor, he defined many of the tropes and traditions that would lead to Japan's giant robot anime; with Little Witch Sally, he established much of what is now taken for granted in the "magical girl" tradition. His other works include Babel II, and a manga adaptation of The Water Margin, which was used as the basis for the TV series of the same name (*DE).
