Hi!

I'm trying to track down an old man character that I'm pretty sure is from an anime. He looks a lot like Sotaro Komaki from Yakuza 0, but I believe he wears a purple vest/sodenashi/sleeveless hanten and straw sandals, and I think he's often shown walking hunched over with his hands behind his back. I believe he's known for being grumpy iirc :s I'm PRETTY sure he's from a popular anime, but probably not a recent one since I haven't watched many recent titles :s Any ideas or help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Since the "looking for" forum is under "manga topics," wasn't sure if this applied since I'm looking for a character from an anime ^^;

Ooh, close! 😲 But not quite ^^; I believe the character I'm thinking of still has dark hair (like Komaki in Y0), and I'm pretty certain he wears tabi and straw sandals, not boots.

I don't think so since I consider that pretty recent, but which character specifically?

Thank you for your guesses and trying to help!

Sounds very much like Tao Pai Pai from Dragonball...

XD Another close one! I'm pretty sure this sort of face is a trope in anime, but still not quite right.

Not sure if I found the right character, but he doesn't seem to have dark hair, wear a vest of any sort, or wear sandals, so I'm thinking that's not it :s But, thank you for trying!


Again, it's an old man with:
-rat-like features (see Sotaro Komaki; it's almost his face precisely)
-a sodenashi (which is like a sleeveless hanten; I'm pretty sure it's purple/indigo)
-tabi and straw sandals (I think the outfit's based on Japanese woodcutters/craftsman)

I remember him being a rather stingy and grumpy character (which is why I'm pretty sure it's not Komaki). Then again, it's possible my memory just squished things together :s It just seems so vivid; I can picture the 2d line art and everything :s
