Gantai's full-body appearance


Fitting to his announcer persona, Gantai has a vivacious personality and gives extensive details to all spectators, regarding the special events off and on the Black Whale.


Succession Contest arc

Broadcast on several giant full-flex monitors, Gantai and his co-partner Tamazo start the opening ceremony of the Black Whale voyage on the biggest stage with the biggest monitor. Psyching up the audience asking them if they're ready to not only witness but experience history, the duo present the very man who made it all possible Nasubi Hui Guo Rou. The King gives a succinct speech and the duo then directs the audience's attention to the second stage where Beyond Netero and the Kakin Royal Family are introduced. An airship carrying the King hoists into the air and lands onto the Black Whale and then the other airships holding the Princes and VIPs follow suit as the M.C. duo covers the entire progress. With that complete, the M.C.s hope the audience enjoy the festivals.[2]

Gantai and Tamazo on the night of the banquet

On the night of the eighth day of the voyage, the M.C. duo return to host the first banquet.[3] They begin the banquet with an announcement that due to the poor health of the Eighth Prince Salé-salé, he's unable to attend his "Change the World" performance. However, the duo reassures the audience that they do have other exhilarating performances on the line up for that night. Following that announcement, the M.C. duo introduces all of the performing acts and praise them for their talents once they finish. This excludes Melody, whose flute performance puts everyone in the ship in a sleep-like trance.[1]


  • The character's name written with kanji, 眼帯, literally means "eyepatch"—a nod to his look.
