Ubuyo's favorite female characters 47/??? Aisha Clan-Clan (Outlaw Star)
"In May of 1997, I received a phone call from one Mitsuyasu Sakai, a major script writer and science advisor in the animated motion picture industry. He asked me to illustrate his ideas for the scenes of a new anime series. This was my first contact with OUTLAW STAR.
After introducing my portfolio to the series director and producer, both insisted in unison: ‘Tanaka-san, you will paint the end frames for OUTLAW STAR.’ It seems they were in need of something quite different from ordinary anime illustrations. Within two weeks in the following November the first five paintings were completed, during which time I listened to the series graceful end theme “Daytime Moon" by Akino Arai, over and over again."
