A japanese composer, who used to work as a composer of jingles at a small radio-station, fuji radio. A friend of his asked him if he'ld like to work for him, his friend was the owner of Square, creator of final fantasy. So, Nobuo made music for the First ever FF. He's also worked for nintendo, and for Oh! My goddess the movie. His greatest peices have been re-mixed many many times and kick ass. He now owns a band called the black mages with a few friends of his. He also does a loaaaaaaad of concerts, all over the world which get sold out. He is teh grand daddy of music.
Final Fantasy the black mages owns you many times over. The song, "Prelude" from FF1 still owns even though it's so old. Age dosn't matter, Nobuo's still as good as ever.
