1950- . Born in Tokyo, Izubuchi is a popular and prolific designer of robots and machinery in many landmark anime. His debut work was on Starbirds, where he was a protégé of director Tadao Nagahama, but his big break came with his involvement in the Headgear collective, which led to Patlabor. He is also fortunate enough to be a member of another, nameless, clique-attending the same high school as Shoji Kawamori and fellow designer Haruhiko Mikimoto. He has demonstrated that his work is not limited to robots alone, both with the organic and, literally, fantastic character designs in Record of Lodoss War and with his role as supervising director on RahXephon.
