Matsuzono joined the production of the Detective Conan anime ever since 1996, starting with the 1st part of Luxury Liner Serial Murder Case. He mainly does organizer, stroryboard, and episode director relative works in the anime. He was notably active during the 1996-2003 period, yet after that, he ceased his involvement in the series.

In 2010, Matsuzono returned to the production team, starting with the 1st part of The Dream the Kappa Saw; however, this time with an alias Umesaburo Sagawa (the pseudonym comes from Umesaburo Sagawa, a character from The Gutsy Frog, a Japanese comedy manga with the same name and kanji). Until 2018, after he finished working on the case The Kendo Tournament of Love and Mystery, Matsuzono quit the Detective Conan production and has not returned yet.
