{{Anime}}, as a medium, has not only been around for a few decades, but it was quite self-contained for much of that period. It therefore has a select number of people who were extremely influential in its development. It is useful to know these people, as their personal style has formed the foundations of many JapaneseVisualArtsTropes found in this wiki.

Not to be confused with EssentialAnime: that's about programs.

!!The "who's who" in anime includes the following directors and producers:

[[#TV]][[#OAV]]'''Those who are most famous for anime on TV and in {{OAV}}:'''

Highly influential in creating the RealRobot genre with his series ''MobileSuitGundam'', and its many sequels and {{Spin Off}}s.
