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.


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. Sakuran was made into a movie in 2006.

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.


Anno won the 29th Kodansha Manga Award for children's manga in 2005 for Sugar Sugar Rune.[1]
