Matsumoto's wife, former manga artist Miyako Maki, has been credited with the creation of both the ''Licca-chan'' doll (pretty much the Japanese equivalent of {{Franchise/Barbie}}) and quite the contributions to the {{shojo}} and {{josei}} manga genres. In fact, Matsumoto himself was a notable ''shojo'' artist in his early years, when SpaceOpera, his real passion, sold poorly, and they reportedly met at some manga magazine. It is sometimes speculated that it was the ''Licca-chan'''s success, which made them financially independent, was the thing that allowed Matsumoto to pursue his artistic vision largely free from ExecutiveMeddling.

'''Leiji Matsumoto''' (born January 5, 1938) is one of the great names of anime and manga, primarily for being the principal creator of what is probably one of the earliest [[TheVerse shared continuities]] over several anime series, creating a unified arc commonly referred to as the Anime/{{Leijiverse}}. The characters and settings, combined with a strong reception in the West, meant that his early series were often the primary introduction to anime for Western viewers of the '70s and early '80s.

* ColbertBump: Since Leiji Matsumoto is relatively unknown in the States outside of ''{{Anime/Interstella 5555}}'', the hardcover edition of the ''{{Anime/Queen Emeraldas}}'' manga not only featured a pull quote on the back cover from {{Music/Daft Punk}}, but another pull quote discussing Matsumoto's influence on Daft Punk's work.
