Nagano Mamoru is an anime/manga/mecha artist from renowned studio Sunrise, best known for his long running manga/anime series The Five Star Stories. Though his portfolio is not as large as his fellow animators/mecha artists, his contribution is equally important. Between L-Gaim and the aforementioned Five Star Stories, Nagano Mamoru pioneered a unique style of mecha design described as "mecha with armor plates that appeared to fit loosely over an internal skeleton."
