Present at the convention monegasque MAGIC, the japanese author Leiji Matsumoto – creator of the manga “Albator” – is back for us on the genesis of his cult series. Called tôei Animation Company, he Is Harlock, Yamato, the battleship of the space or even the film Interstella 5555… Leiji Matsumoto was this Saturday, march 9, the guest of honour at the fifth edition of the convention of monaco MAGIC, the opportunity for the mangaka veteran 81-year-old to go out to meet his fans, but also answer the questions of the journalists present on the spot. True living legend Leiji Matsumoto began in the middle of the drawing wizard a new icon, Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, King Leo…) nicknamed the “god of manga”. A collaboration that seemed to be intended for the two men : “When I was five years old, I went to see a cartoon at the cinema, and I later discovered that Osamu Tezuka had attended the same meeting as me (he was age of fifteen years). I realized then that I had a common destiny with him.” With this mentor prestigious, Matsumoto has learned a lot, and although their paths are then separated, the two authors have both made their commitment to the environment a thematic hinge of their respective works. “Since my childhood, I perceive that there is a danger to the Earth and this is why I’ve always drawn to stories dealing with this subject. We live in a dangerous days, and it is essential to protect the planet, and the life, not to “hurt” the Earth by exploiting its resources until exhausting them.” Forty years after its creation, read Albator, it is first of all realise that its green message has never been so topical, but also that many of the points of detail which echo in our time. For the octagénaire Leiji Matsumoto, still engaged, he urge to act before it is too late. “We are experiencing significant climate change, the tectonic plates move more than before, we need to implement to protect the Earth.” Called tôei Animation Company Successful internationally and particularly in France – a country to which Matsumoto is very attached to and remembrance of the stories told by his father, the aviator, the mangaka thought that this was the message of tolerance, “a theme to which everyone can identify” which has led to the implementation of the export of the kind in the world. A popularity as one remembers that in 2003, Daft Punk did not hesitate to request for a feature film project music : Interstella 5555. “I live in a two-step animation studios Toei and Daft Punk have landed one day, without this being intended to ask me to work with them. Then we worked in close collaboration, but this was not something planned.” What is the meaning of today in a series like Harlock ? Because its environmental message is still relevant, Leiji Matsumoto confides to us that he would not bring major changes to the story or to the characters if it was brought to the revisiting of our days. Because after all, “the purpose of Albator is not to make war, but to live in osmosis with the other. It is an aspect of the story it seems to me essential to keep in mind.” The generic French Albator, sung by Eric Charden : Thanks : Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC), and Shibuya Productions.
