Cyborg 009 Wiki
Masaki Tsuji

Masaki Tsuji is a prominent and prolific scriptwriter in the world of anime, having been part of the business since anime first debuted on television in Japan during the 1960s.

Most of his best work consists of the TV adaptations of Go Nagai and Osamu Tezuka, but he has also worked with other legendary mangaka such as Mitsuteru Yokoyama on Sally the Witch and of course, Shotaro Ishinomori on his 1968 anime incarnation of Cyborg 009.

Unlike many of his peers from anime's golden age who have retired, he is still active, having recently written scripts for the series Detective Conan and became president of the Honkaku Mystery Writers Club of Japan.
