Osamu Dezaki (出﨑 統 Dezaki Osamu?) (also known as Makura Saki (崎 枕, さきまくら Saki Makura?)) is a Japanese director of anime born on November 18, 1943 in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan.[1][citation needed] For another name "斉九洋," "松戸 完 Matsudo Kan," "矢吹 徹 Yabuki Toru." His older brother is Satoshi Dezaki, who is also anime director.

He is known for his distinct visual style, which makes use of split-screen, stark lighting, and pastel freeze frames that he calls "Postcard Memories."[2] The latter is perhaps his most famous trademark and features a process where the screen fades into a detailed "painting" of the simpler original animation. Many of techniques that he used became popular afterwards and came to be called a peculiar technique of Japanese animation.
