Creation and Concept

Jinpei Matsuda's design has probably been inspired by Cowboy Bebop main protagonist Spike Spiegel. Both of the characters has messy curled hair and both are smoking a lot in different places inside or outside and both has almost the same tuxedo but Spike didn't have no neck-tie.
