His kansai dialect is very funny. I wanted a character who was different to the others. I designed him having in consideration the concept of savage,because it didn't have too much sense that he was only different to Tama and Hori.I changed the design 3 times before I got to this one. The first one had a completely different personality and he was friend of Tamahome since childhood.Between being a bandid, a regular civilian, emperor, monk, doctor,etc, I wanted for him to be more outstanding.Part of that is based on the book "Suikoden"
and his fan comes from the book "Saiyuki"
because it just came up to me while talking about Oosaka,hahaha. Although you can't see it, Tasuki run very fast.When he first appeared,he kidnapped Miaka,right? He has a lot of strength and knows how to fight.He's not like the rest of the constellations that only have one ability,he have the hole package.
Taken from book 11
