If you’re an anime fan of any caliber (which you are considering you’re reading this article), chances are you’ve seen a series that Mr. Kawamoto has been a part of in one way or another.
As the lead character designer for the highly acclaimed series “Cowboy Bebop”, Toshihiro Kawamoto is held in quite high regard for both anime fans and other industry workers. Through his life he’s worked on many shows like “Wolf’s Rain”, “Gosick”, “Hero Man” and the recently aired series “Noragami”. Mr. Kawamoto is also the co-founder of the animation studio “BONES“, one that I’m sure most of you are well aware of.
