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.

Welcome to the Triggerverse: Shared Universes in Anime

Shared universes are a long-standing tradition in American comics and now all the rage in movies, but relatively rare in anime and manga. This has made Space Patrol Luluco - a series that's combining Studio Trigger's various other series into a single story - all the more unusual and exciting.

The sci-fi romanticist who gave us space operas like SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO/STAR BLAZERS, GALAXY EXPRESS 999 and SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK.

He deserves respect. Captain Harlock is one of the best characters ever made. Thank you for all your work Matsumoto-sensei.

I'm currently watching Ginga Tetsudou and am in love with it. Seeing that this mangaka has around 1000 anime I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun with his works.
