Manga artist Leiji Matsumoto, best known for his SF manga “Galaxy Express 999,” passed away on February 13th from acute heart failure.

He was 85 years old.

His passing was a shock to the manga industry, and many have expressed their condolences.

Matsumoto debuted as a shoujo manga artist and gained popularity with his work “Otoko Oidon” in 1971.

In 1974, he participated as a mechanical designer for the TV anime “Space Battleship Yamato,” and from there, he became deeply involved in TV anime and anime movies.

“Yamato” and “Galaxy Express 999” became a series, and “Matsumoto Anime,” which dealt with the theme of space, became famous for its axis of “love and peace.”
