Born in 1968 in Fukushima Prefecture.

Yoshinori assumed the position of associate professor at the Osaka University of Arts on 2014, and established Fukushima Gainax in the same year to assist in the restoration of his hometown, Fukushima, after the disastrous Tōhoku Earthquake.
He opened Japan's first anime/manga museum, "Fukushima Sakura Yugakusha Museum," on 2015 in Miharu-Machi, Fukushima Prefecture. Simultaneously, he began creating anime series with the goal to distribute globally; he presented various anime series including "Masamune Datenicle," "Jinriki Senkan!?
