Character Description: Jiro Yamada

He hates being called by his real name. He considers it too bland for his exciting life. Well, what would you do if you were an Aestivalis pilot and your name was almost as bland, generic, and downright boring as our "John Doe"?

Gai introduces the crew of the Nadesico to his favorite anime: Gekigengar 3. He's a practical otaku (anime fanatic) when it comes to Gekigengar. He has TV episodes and all kinds of memorabilia, and he insists on alluding to Gekigengar in everything he does: from his Aestivalis to the maneuvers he makes. And somehow, Gekigengar sticks with the crew, especially Akito, who starts looking up to Gai.

His sudden death early in the series rattles Akito significantly and somewhat sets his place as a small legend in everyone's memory.
