Shinichiro Watanabe is a well-known Japanese anime director. He likes to mix different opposing styles into his works to create something new--for example, ''{{Cowboy Bebop}}'' is cowboy space opera mixed with film noir, martial arts, and jazz. ''{{Samurai Champloo}}'' fuses traditional samurai with hip-hop music and culture. ''[[Anime/SpaceDandy Space Dandy]]'' fuses RaygunGothic and {{Zeerust}} with disco music.

Not to be confused with Creator/ShinichiWatanabe, the director of ''Anime/ExcelSaga''.

He has directed the following full-length works:
[[index]]
* ''Anime/MacrossPlus''
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop''
* ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''
* ''[[Manga/SakamichiNoApollon Kids on the Slope]]''
* ''Anime/SpaceDandy''
[[/index]]

He has also worked on shorter works for the following:
* ''[[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS Armor Hunter Mellowlink]]''
* ''Anime/TheAnimatrix'': A Detective Story
* ''Anime/EurekaSeven'': Third ending animation
* ''Anime/StarDriver'': First opening animation
* ''Anime/GeniusParty'': Last short: "Baby Blue"

He's also the music producer for ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine''

[[AC: Tropes found in his work:]]

* AnachronismStew: Used exceedingly well.
* AuthorAppeal: [[AwesomeMusic MUSIC]]. Every one of his directed works had some genre(or genres) of music as a major part of the storyline and/or general theme of the series. And among the works where he's credited but isn't directing, he's usually in charge of the music production for the show.
* CastOfSnowflakes: Taken UpToEleven in ''Anime/SpaceDandy'', where every bad guy and alien race is designed by a different artist.
* DoingItForTheArt: As above,''Anime/SpaceDandy'' uses different art styles, moods and directing styles for each episode, plus having every bad guy and alien race designed by a different artist.
* GenreRoulette: Watanabe is well-known for taking many genres and hitting "puree".
%%* GoOutWithASmile

* ShortRunInPeru: ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' yet again. It's U.S. premiere in January 2014 was on {{Toonami}} at 11:30, coming a half-hour before its premiere in Japan.
