Leiji Matsumoto

松本 零士


Birth place: Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan

Leiji Matsumoto is a well-known creator of several anime and manga series. He is famous for his space operas such as Uchuu Senkan Yamato.

His style is characterized by tragic heroes; tall, slender, fragile-looking heroines with strong wills and, in some cases, god-like powers; and a love of analog gauges and dials in his spacecraft.

Matsumoto is married to former mangaka Miyako Maki.
