Hideaki Anno (庵野 秀明?, Anno Hideaki; born May 22, 1960) is a Japanese animator, film director, screenwriter, story-boarder, voice actor, and actor. He is best known for his part in creating the popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. His style has become defined by his incorporation of postmodernism and the extensive portrayal of characters' thoughts and emotions, often through unconventional scenes presenting the mental deconstruction of those characters. His works have won him several awards for directing and screenwriting.

He was the uncredited Japanese voice of Miyu Miyu in FLCL, working under his protégé Kazuya Tsurumaki in his first work as a full-fledged director.
