  • Yoh Yoshinari (吉成 曜 Yoshinari Yō) is a Japanese key animator, storyboard artist, and anime director. He is recognized by the way he represents volume and perspective using spheres, especially for smoke and explosions, as well as his character action in general. He remarks Nijitte Monogatari is one of his most important influences, with his artistic style particularly visible in his design work for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and Little Witch Academia. Yoshinari entered the anime industry through the influence of his older brother, Kou Yoshinari. Several of his early works were uncredited second key animation and in-betweens for his brother during high school. After leaving professional school, he applied to Gainax and Madhouse. Not receiving a response from Gainax, he joined Madhouse. Due to a misunderstanding, Gainax failed to process his application until three months later. Not wanting to explain, Yoshinari told Madhouse “being an animator is too hard for me," and switched to Gainax. At Gainax, Yoshinari had joined just after the closure of Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. With nothing to do, he was immediately put onto visual development for the film Aoki Uru. The brief turn around after Nadia put Yoshinari on the fast track to becoming a key animator. (en)
