Takeshi Mori (もりたけし Mori Takeshi, born October 10, 1963 in Tokyo, Japan.) is a Japanese anime director, storyboard artist, and scriptwriter. After graduating from Waseda University, Mori began working in the anime industry.
He began working in 1986 at Ajia-do Animation Works as an in-between animation artist before moving on to key animation work. From there, he worked as a storyboard artist and producer for the NTV/Studio Pierrot TV series The Burning Wild Man. After being impressed by the OVA series Gunbuster, he began working for Gainax. After working as a storyboard artist on Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Mori directed the series Tasuke, the Samurai Cop. More recent series he has directed include Vandread, Ruin Explorers Fam & Ihrlie, Meltylancer, and Stratos 4.
Throughout his career, he has used the pen names Shin Nemoto (根本 清 Nemoto Shin), Inumakura (いぬまくら), and Urano Kantoku (浦野 寛徳) (the last meaning "behind the scenes director"). He is the son of former Chunichi Dragons #4 batter Tōru Mori (森 徹 Mori Tōru).
