About:
Mobile Suit Gundam's principal creator is a veteran of the anime industry. In 1964, Tomino signed with Osamu Tezuka's Mushi Production Studio, making his debut on the classic Mighty Atom (known in the U.S. as "Astro Boy"). In the 70's, he became a freelance director and prolific storyboard artist, lending his talents to a number of shows in the popular "super robot" genre. With 1979's Mobile Suit Gundam, Tomino combined the gaudy gadgetry of the traditional robot show with hard science, complex characterization, and weighty themes of war and morality. In the following decades, he's returned to the Gundam saga several times to add to the chronicles of the "Universal Century" era, and most recently (in 1999's Turn A Gundam) to extend the series into entirely new realms. In addition to his work in the anime field, Tomino has also written more than a dozen novels, most of them based on the Gundam universe or set in the fantasy world of Aura Battler Dunbine.
