ⓘ Futoshi Nishiya

After graduating from a vocational college in Osaka, he began to work at Kyoto Animation. His first work as a key animator was Inuyasha in 2003 which was contracted from Sunrise Inc. In 2006, he took on his first ever animation director role in the 10th episode of 2006 edition of Haruhi Suzumiya, and also took on the role of chief animation director in the 2009 edition of the same series.

He took on his first lead character design role in the 2011 anime adaption of Nichijou. In 2012, he worked on the original character designs of Hyouka, which is based on the mystery novel of the same title written by Honobu Yonezawa. As the original work is a novel, the character designs needed to be done from scratch.

On 18 July 2019, he died in the Kyoto Animation arson attack. He was aged 37.
