Animositisomina is the eighth studio album by industrial metal band Ministry, released in 2003. It is the group's first studio album and second overall release through Sanctuary Records, following the live album Sphinctour.

The title is a palindrome, made of the word "animosity" spelled without the final letter and both forward and backward. It is also very similar to Aoxomoxoa, which is an album by the Grateful Dead. According to an interview on Fuse's Uranium, Jourgensen was bored at the time he was coming up with an album title.

"The Light Pours Out of Me" was written and originally recorded by Magazine for their Real Life album in 1978. Ministry did perform the song several times in concerts in the late 1980s, but it was never released or recorded officially.

It is notable for being the last album with Paul Barker, as well as being the last by Ministry to play in their traditional industrial metal style before switching to a more thrash-oriented style with their next album, Houses of the Molé.
