Makoto Moriwaki (森脇真琴 Moriwaki Makoto?) is an anime director born in Hokkaidō, Japan. Moriwaki started as a reporter covering the TV Tokyo production Pay Attention to Dr. Rin. In 1982, Moriwaki founded Animal House (あにまる屋 Animaru-ya?) (now known as Studio Comet) with Yoshinobu Sanada, Toshiyuki Honda, and Hiroshi Fukutomi). From the first Doraemon movie produced by Shin'ei Dōga until 1989, he was in charge of production for the movies. He then acted as assistant director for Nobita's Monstrous Underwater Castle and the Kaibutsu-kun movie Demon Sword.

His favorite projects, however, are the Doraemon TV special Nobita's Pirate Hiking and Sasuga no Sarutobi[1].
