Who is the most valuable contributor in the history of anime?

Recommended Posts

Who is in your opinion the one who laid down the foundation of anime as it is today?  Do you think Hayao Miyazaki and Mikoto Shinkai revolutionized the way how anime is perceived today? 

There are quite a few questions I would like to ask but who do you consider to be the most valuable contributor to anime? 

I have named both of the names that I humbly consider to be valuable contributors but listening to anime openings frequently, I came to know another contender known as Hiroyuki Sawano. He was involved in several projects, including AoT, Guilty Crown and Blue Exorcist and more. Aimer as well as Lisa are two vocalists known amongst anime opening enthusiasts.

I'm not sure he's the most valuable contributor, but you have to give it to Miyazaki, he comes from a fabled background and put it to work.  So much of the things in his works drew on things that he saw during World War II, it's really hard to not respect it.  That and his artistry is frankly some of the greatest there is.  

I wouldn't say he's the sole key contributor, but I don't think we would necessarily have some of the storyboard designs and land/cityscapes we have today without his influence.
