Ryōsuke Takahashi (高橋 良輔 Takahashi Ryōsuke?, born January 11, 1943) is a Japanese anime director,[1] screenwriter, and producer. He is among Sunrise's most renowned and noted directors, with his work (together with character designer Norio Shioyama) epitomizing much of Sunrise's work in the 1980s, pioneering the real robot genre, with such noted works as Armored Trooper Votoms, Fang of the Sun Dougram and several others.[citation needed]

Takahashi is a graduate of Meiji University. He was also a part-time lecturer at the private Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts. Among his most recent works is Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto, which he created and directed.
