Born as Motoo Abiko in 1934 in the city of Himi, Fujiko A. Fujio passed away at the age of 88. He was found outside his home in the city of Kawasaki, near Tokyo.

How did Fujiko A. Fujio come up with the ideas?

Abiko met his co-creator Hiroshi Fujimoto when he transferred to the elementary school in Takaoka City and soon became friends. They formed their partnership in 1951 and used the Fujiko Fujio name from 1954. Together they created hit shows like Q-Taro, Doraemon, and Ninja Hattori. Most of their mangas were also made into cartoons and are still famous among the viewers.

He said,

I’ve been avoiding reading (them) as a protective measure because I’m influenced by them and think I can’t draw like this when I read them.

Abiko and Fujimoto’s partnership dissolved in 1987, citing creative differences. After that, Abiko started working on solo projects under Fujiko Studio K.K. and adopted the pen name that he is known for today, Fujiko A. Fujio.
