Yusei Matsui
Yusei Matsui was born in Iruma, Saitama, Japan on January 31, 1979 and is a manga artist.

Yusei writes the “Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro” series and the “Assassination Classroom” series, which were both adapted anime television series. “Assassination Classroom” was also adapted into two live action movies.

Yusei’s favorite manga series include “Ultimate Muscle”, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure”, and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

While writing the teacher Koro-sensei, he built upon the ideals of the sort of teacher that he wanted to have. He believes that if he was an extraterrestrial and invincible being that could move around at mach twenty and was interested in becoming a teacher, he’d want to be like Koro-sensei.

He was inspired to write Neuro after being lent a detective novel by a friend that was written by Seishi Yokomizo, and he wound up hanging onto it for seven years. He realized that he should probably give it back to his friend, so he read the final two pages or so where the mystery’s solved, and realized that mysteries aren’t for him.

Yusei realized that there were a bunch of people that thought along these lines, particularly for the audience of Shonen Jump, since there’s never been an orthodox detective manga that has done very well there.

It’s really his take on the detective manga, but not in some bad way. Conan and Sherlock Holmes always manage to land themselves in such situations, however Neuro uses his magic to hunt them down. As to why folks would create complicated tricks so they could murder somebody, he wanted to convey the extent that humans will go in pursuit of their goal.

Yusei’s editor told him that he should create some cute mascot character in order to boost the popularity of the Neuro manga. He didn’t think it really needed one, however he attempted to figure out what would be cute within this world, and he came up with Akane, a sentient braid of hair that attaches to a body. What he thought of wasn’t a sentient braid, but a being that would latch right onto your skull and rip into it, and he realized pretty quickly that this wouldn’t make for any kind of usable mascot.

Before Yusei worked as a mangaka, he worked as an assistant for Yoshio Sawai, who created Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

“Assassination Classroom” was nominated for an Eisner Award.
