Masami Ōbari (大張 正己, Ōbari Masami), born in the Hiroshima Prefecture on January 24, 1966, is an anime character designer and director for Studio G-1 NEO. His work in anime varies from producing opening sequences, short OVAs and a few television series. He mainly likes to work within the sci-fi mecha and fighting genres.
His designs are easily recognizable from the voluptuous female forms and well-toned pretty boys he tends to create to appeal to wide audiences. For references, he likes to use images of professional wrestlers and models. He is friends with fellow former animator and current freelance illustrator Kotobuki Tsukasa.
