Takashi Maeda (前田 崇 Maeda Takashi) is a student who wears a beret (implying he is an art student) with a bandaged ear. Some sources indicate he has "tinnitus", which is not usually, but it can be caused by ear trauma.

He wears a beret which is a common fashion/stereotype of artists. Hisao Nakai implies that they don't get along.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

  • The name Takashi means "filial piety" (孝), "noble, prosperous" (隆) or "esteem, honor, venerate" (崇).
  • Takashi's surname Maeda means "previous" (前) (mae) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Vincent Van Gogh famously severed his own left ear after several psychotic episodes that Takashi's look is undoubtedly inspired by this.
