Moyoco Anno (安野 モヨコ, Anno Moyoko, born March 26, 1971) is a Japanese manga artist and fashion writer, with numerous books published in both categories. She is married to director Hideaki Anno of Neon Genesis Evangelion fame. Anno has aspired to being a manga artist since her third year at elementary school.[1]

Works[edit]

She draws inspiration from the fashion world, and her work is noted for its detail which gives it a broader appeal than just the demographic it is aimed for.[1] She delves into the psychology of her characters.[2] Her manga and books have attained considerable popularity among young women in Japan. Though she primarily writes manga of the josei demographic, her most popular series, Sugar Sugar Rune, (serialized in Nakayoshi) is targeted at primary school-aged girls. In a recent Oricon poll, she was voted the number eight most popular manga artist among females and thirteen in the general category. Her manga Happy Mania was made into a television series in 1998, followed by Hataraki Man in October 2007.[citation needed] Sakuran was made into a movie in 2006.[3]

In the movie Japan Sinks, she has a cameo role alongside her husband; their characters were also married. The movie was directed by Shinji Higuchi, who, like her husband Hideaki Anno, is a co-founder of Gainax.[4]

Anno took a career hiatus in 2008, citing health reasons.[5] During this hiatus, Anno published essays in manga form about her life with her husband.[6]

Awards[edit]

Anno won the 29th Kodansha Manga Award for children's manga in 2005 for Sugar Sugar Rune.[7]
