In a magazine filled with crazy, over-the-top action & ridiculous gags, Izumi Matsumoto showed that there was a place for romance manga in Shonen Jump with Kimagure Orange Road. His success allowed someone like Masakazu Katsura to succeed later on with Video Girl Ai & I”s.

Izumi Matsumoto (creator of Kimagure Orange Road) passed away last week after years of different spinal issues. I’m unfortunately not familiar with a ton of his work but Orange Road is one of my all time favorites, definitely sad news.

Extremely sad news 🙁 Kimagure Orange Road was a solid series and hugely influential for us oldtaku. He was chronically ill for an extremely long time. Rest in peace, Izumi Matsumoto.

Also, KOR & Matsumoto played a big role in the eventual creation of Bastard!!, as crazy as that sounds, since Kazushi Hagiwara was an assistant of Izumi Matsumoto’s during KOR’s run, and Hagiwara admitted to learning so much from Matsumoto during his time there.
