Norio Shioyama (塩山 紀生 Shioyama Norio ?) is an animator, illustrator, character designer, and animation director born on 1940-03-28 in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan.[1][2] He is most well known for his work as character designer on the anime TV series Armored Trooper Votoms. Shioyama, along with Kōichi Murata, Kazuo Komatsubara, and Kōshin Yonekawa, was one of the founding members of the animation studio Oh! Production.[3][4]

Profile

In 1961, Shioyama moved to Tokyo. In 1966, he joined Hatena Pro under the direction of Bonjin Nagaki. After helping to found Oh! Production in 1970, Shioyama left to become a freelancer, doing work for Tatsunoko Pro and working on many projects for Sunrise as an animation director.

Shioyama's first project as a character designer was for Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3, which anime director Ryōsuke Takahashi praised. Shioyama then worked on such shows as Fang of the Sun Dougram as animation production chief, and Armored Trooper Votoms, Kikōkai Galient, and Ronin Warriors as both character designer and animation production chief. Together with Takahashi, he and his designs epitomized Sunrise's work in the 1980s.
