Masuo Ueda! Producer of Mobile Suit Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, City Hunter, and so much more!
Ueda-san is a legendary anime producer. If you wrote down your 5 favorite anime, chances are he was involved in at least a couple of them!
Beyond being just a producer, he was also the president of Aniplex and A-1 Pictures. Now he’s an independent producer with his own company.
He was deeply interested in Galverse’s WAGMAA mission and the world of Web3. Ueda-san had some strong views on how NFTs and Web3 can help the processes of anime production, which are pretty old-school.
Wailoaloa told him that Bebop inspired a whole new generation of jazz & blues lovers. He said, making Bebop was one of the hardest projects ever - doing so many new and creative things!
