Takeshi Mori (もりたけし Mori Takeshi?) is a Japanese anime director, storyboard artist, and script writer born October 10, 1963 in Tokyo, Japan. 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 Moeru! Onii-san. After being impressed by the OVA series Top o Nerae!, he began working for Gainax. After working as a storyboard artist on Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Mori directed the series Edokko Boy Gatten Tasuke. 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?).
