Kaoru Shintani


Shintani began his career in 1972 as a shōjo artist and was nominated for the Ribon Comics Award for best new artist of that year. After working as an assistant to Leiji Matsumoto, the writer and artist of "Captain Harlock" and "Space Battleship Yamato", Shintani began to publish aviator titles in various comic magazines.

] Serialization of "Area 88" began in 1979 and the title has been popular ever since.

While working as an assistant to Matsumoto, one of Shintani's duties was to construct plastic models for drawing reference. Matsumoto often states that he based the character Yattaran (who appears as a supporting character in several Harlock stories) on Shintani.
