Did You Know?
Matsumoto has based many of his characters on people he personally knew. Captain Juzo Okita was based on his father; Susumu Kodai was named after Matsumoto's younger brother; Yuki Mori was based on a pen pal of Matsumoto's; Doctor Sado was based on an assistant who served Matsumoto; Captain Harlock was based on an elementary-school classmate.
He has a deep fascination with the number 9 and uses it in his works, believing it represents the last stop before a major shift in mathematics/time/space/the ages of man.
