«Yoshihiro Sakaguchi» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

Yoshihiro Sakaguchi, better known by his pseudonym: Yuukichan’s Papa, did music and/or sound effects for many of Capcom’s early titles, and was even involved with Mega Man and Street Fighter in both series’ early beginnings. Little is known about the legendary composer, but he left Capcom in the mid 90’s, and according to an english translation of this site (via excite.co.jp/world/english/web), he seems to have some involvement with the Mobile Suit Gundam anime franchise.
