'''Hideaki Anno''' is one of the six co-founders of anime studio [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]]; he is most (in)famously known for his work on the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' franchise, and he was rather famously involved in a dispute over the anime adaptation of ''Manga/KareKano'' with the author of the manga. Anno made a name for himself working as an animator on ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' -- thanks to recognition from since-then friend and collaborator Creator/HayaoMiyazaki [[note]]In case you noticed anything in ''Nausicaa'' that could have possibly influenced ''Evangelion'', yes, he did animate the scene with the Giant Warrior[[/note]]. His most high-profile work prior to ''Evangelion'' was for ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'' and ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}''. He has also directed several live-action films, including an adaptation of popular 1970s anime ''Anime/CuteyHoney''.

Anno once went back to his hometown to teach kids. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFFrt1V9Cao Video here.]]

Any physical or mental resemblance to a certain Jerkass Father (Gendo Ikari) is entirely coincidental.

He is also a master of the ShrugOfGod.

Creator/SpikeSpencer [[HilariousOuttakes hates him immensely]] [[TroubledProduction for running out of ink]] [[GainaxEnding during the ending of]] ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' ([[YouBastard the bastard]]).

Anno is married to Creator/MoyocoAnno (no previous relation), who is the author of ''Manga/SugarSugarRune'' and the successor of Kyoko Okazaki as writer of ''Helter Skelter'' due to the latter's AndIMustScream condition after an accident. She wrote a short manga about her husband on the 20th anniversary of her ''mangaka'' career.

KazuyaTsurumaki is his protege and successor.

!Tropes present in HideakiAnno's works:
* AuthorTract[=/=]ContemplateOurNavels
* CreatorBreakdown - ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is basically one extended therapy session masquerading as a HumongousMecha, with the masquerade slowly collapsing towards the end.
* CreatorCameo: He does the voice for the Black Space God in the AudioAdaptation ''Evangelion: After the End''.
** Well maybe, no official source ever confirmed it.
** He also has an uncredited cameo voicing Miyu Miyu (the cat) on {{FLCL}}
* {{Deconstruction}} - A specialty of his.
** To clarify, not only was Eva obviously a deconstruction of the HumongousMecha, but his film ''Love & Pop'' is a deconstruction of Japanese teen-girl culture, and ''Shiki Jutsu'' is a deconstruction of the [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie Dream Girl]]/{{Cloudcuckoolander}} archetype(s).
* HappilyMarried - To mangaka Moyoco Anno, for nearly a decade now. His marriage has drastically affected his work, disposition, and outlook on life. For a man whose previous works have dealt heavily with the inevitability of pain and the need to EarnYourHappyEnding, some would say this really is something special. In his own words:
--> This was his first experience with married life. Later on, people close to him would remark that Anno had changed, both physically and mentally (he lost weight and became less edgy).
* LighterAndSofter
** And how. For starters, he made a ''Anime/CuteyHoney'' anime.
** And ''Manga/KareKano''. And if you look closely at the hometown video, he actually seems to get better ''on camera'' towards the end.
** After years of using Ominous Gratuitous Greek to create moods of creepiness and dread in his audience, he named his studio Studio Khara. In other words Studio Joy.
* LyingCreator - He has been accused of this. What few direct statements he's made about his most famous work have been vague at best, and outright contradictory at worst.
* MindScrew - He uses it quite a bit.
* OneOfUs - He and his works bridge the gap between the arthouse and otaku-driven venues of anime, melding high and low culture.
* {{Postmodernism}} - He has been cited as one of the primary inspirations of the Superflat movement.
* ShoutOut - His works are typically packed with allusions or homages to anime, film, music, literature, philosophy, psychology, religion - anything he feels like.
* ShrugOfGod - Well, he's the guy to whom the "I have no bloody clue, FanWank something" caption is most frequently affixed.
* SignatureStyle: If one watches Eva, and then his first few Live Action films, you will notice a recurring theme of characters going through ''extreme'' amounts of trauma in order to realize their own self worth - usually with a bit of the aforementioned MindScrew thrown in.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism - His works often occupy a unique position of being dark and uncompromising in their portrayal of human nature, yet ultimately (sometimes deceptively) idealistic in their emphasis on love, hope and the importance of interpersonal relationships.
* SpringtimeForHitler - It's theorised that Gainax attempted to use ''NGE'' as a means to avoid paying taxes by producing a flop. Even if this is true, it [[HoistByHisOwnPetard failed miserably]]. The truth itself is more mundane: Gainax hadn't seen any of the profits from ''Nadia'' because Toho were the guys who actually owned the rights to it, and they deliberately underreported their profits for ''NGE'' because they were unsure about what would happen (and if ''NGE'' would've actually flopped, Gainax would've just been bankrupt).
* TakeThatAudience[=/=]ThisLoserIsYou - His bitterness towards the old {{Otaku}} lifestyle really shows, especially in ''NGE''. He was also majorly pissed about the sheer FanDumb and death threats he received after ''NGE''[='=]s finale, to the point that ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End Of Evangelion]]'' has sometimes been considered one 90-minute extended "fuck you" towards said FanDumb.
* TrollingCreator - Rivals YoshiyukiTomino and JohnKricfalusi for "Biggest Troll in the Animation Industry". Considering how much of a cash cow Evangelion has become as a result of the fandom he loves to hate (see TakeThatAudience, above), they're basically paying him to screw with them.
* TroubledProduction - Gainax's shifty accounting practices combined with advertisers pulling out in droves gave him a lot of grief over the years, and is at least partly the reason why his works sometimes suffer from poor quality [[OffModel animation]] and {{Gainax Ending}}s.
