One of the leading shoujo artists of the 1950s (his debut was 1957). He set the standard for the creative layouts and symbolism signature to shoujo manga.
He was well-known as a mangaka for the anthology Margaret in the 1960's, and became increasingly popular during the first big wave of "sparkly-eyed" shoujo romances.
He became prominent again during the 1990's-early 2000's, much due to the emergence of Lolita-as-we-know-it during the same period. MACOTO's work has been featured in several Gothic & Lolita Bibles, and Lolita everywhere treasure his lovely, albeit repetitive, glittery-eyed maidens in their flora-adorned, Fairytale worlds. In recent years he has kept a significantly lower profile, although he has his own official gallery located in Chiba. MACOTO also has an annual show in Ginza.
