Cyborg 009 Wiki

Naoyuki Konno (紺野 直幸, born July 22, 1971) is an animator, storyboard artist, character designer, and animation director that has worked on various series.

After his work on Android Kikaider- The ANIMATION, he came to be associated with adaptations of Shotaro Ishinomori's manga for a brief period of time, including Cyborg 009: The Cyborg Soldier.


Work on "Cyborg 009: The Cyborg Soldier"[]

Konno's main involvement was him being put in charge of the character and mecha designs for the series.

Having been a fan of Ishinomori's various manga works, he was also made to come up with designs for newly-created characters, modeling them after characters he had seen in the other series that he'd read or drawing them in a way that would emulate the manga-ka's style.

Animation Director Credits[]

He had also done the storyboarding for "The Birth" and "Mythos, The Final Chapter".

After Cyborg 009, he would be employed to a similar extent on 009-1 by Ishimori Entertainment, a company developed specifically for producing and funding adaptations of Ishinomori's titles. Unfortunately, Ishimori Entertainment would dissolve, taking with it any further adaptation plans.
