Tomino Yoshiyuki (富野 由悠季, To-mino Yo-shi-yuki?, born 富野 喜幸 November 5, 1941) is a notable japanese mecha anime story creator and writer, responsible for perhaps making the first real robot anime. He is also infamous for having some series in a very dark tone where numerous characters die, earning him the nickname "Kill'em All Tomino" (皆殺しの富野 Minagoroshi no Tomino).
He has created or co-created such notable works as the U.C. (Universal Century) Gundam series that started with Mobile Suit Gundam, Turn A Gundam, Seisenshi Dunbine, Densetsu Kyojin Ideon, Sentou Mecha Xabungle, Ginga Hyouryuu Vifam, Heavy Metal L-Gaim, Brain Powered and Overman King Gainer among others. His latest work is Gundam G No Reconguista.
Tomino also writes some of the music for his series under the pseudonym Iogi Rin, such as King Gainer's catchy opening.
