Junichi Mizutari is a Japanese composer, sound designer, and sound programmer. He started working for Namco and later founded his own game development company Lenar. Unfortunately, Junichi is a very shy person who is not active online.

His most significant contribution was programming the FM sound in Namco's Arcade sound driver.


Junichi was usually credited as J. Mizu, simply his first initial with a shortened version of his last name.

In Deadly Towers, the letters are flipped in different directions, resulting in the alias MR.J.WINC. The M is upside down, and the Z and U were flipped 90 degrees to the right.
