Yoshirō Kataoka (片岡義朗 Kataoka Yoshirō?), also known by the nickname Hagera, is an anime producer and production designer born in 1945 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan[1]. He has worked for the Tōkyū Agency, Asatsu DK, and NAS, and he currently works as a full time advisor at Marvelous Entertainment. His proactive approach to planning anime when he worked at advertising firms has made him a front runner in his field[1].
