Takeo's appearance in 1989 is very different from what he is today. It was revealed that he used to have blonde pompadour hair and was not bald yet.

Personality

Present

Despite his gigantic size and intimidating appearance, Takeo is a genuinely kind and friendly guy to others, and generally a quiet and reserved man. He makes this noticeable at the Franchouchou concert in Episode 8; he remembers the time with Lily Hoshikawa and finally manages to put it behind him.

He seems to deeply regret how his last words to Lily were dismissive about the fact that Lily was distressed by the growth of body hair, due to being trans and did not want to go through puberty, He cries hard after Lily's death, clearly blaming himself for overworking her.

Teens

Takeo alias "Big Foot" was the strongest student of his school and of the time, for that very reason a gang called Q-taro decided to recruit him for his strength, the objective of this gang was to conquer the country and be the kings of the gangs of the time, however Takeo was only looking for something more powerful, "love".

Despite being big and generating fear in people, he is someone with a big heart and shows a lot of affection for people who appreciate him as he really is, although he has incidents when he tries to confess his love, he keeps trying until he succeeds. Sachika, his future wife accepts his proposal to marry him even while in high school.
