Character Design: Tomonori Kogawa

I feel the makes me
Memories are always beautiful, unless you open the box of memories.

I was just much did you pay for that cool toy? About 8000 Yen? lol

.....I believe that a small toy of Trider G7(in 1980), 7-form transformable about 1000Yen at the times?, was better for that.

Well, yes, Toy designer/mecha designer(design team?) was Submarine, but so-called the character designer for Ideon was Tomonori Kogawa.

Is Kogawa still alive? I haven't seen his name on anime since Dunbine, in 1983.

Such funky proportions! Ideon is perhaps one of the great overlooked "key" anime series - I would be very surprised indeed if Hideki Anno didn't take a few things from it when he was coming up with "Evangelion".

We were bad

Japanese children around that time ignored the series, except deep fans of Tomino - they were teens.
We kids were just involved in Gundam, enjoyed SpidermanRobo, and glued to camel-toe in Crusher Joe The Movie.

The story was a typical Tomono work, ironic and cruel...for kids, that was too strong, I suppose. I believe works of Kogawa Tomonori was great - he drew beautiful lines of characters. But Tomino said "Ideon ...bad design works by Submarine, that was failed. Just big red GIM"

Zanza-lubu was one of Tomino's great designs....full of cubic curves.
(refer: Wonder Festival 2007)
