Loved him live-action GTO. I was really surprised how well he captured Vice Principal Uchiyamada. He had this kind of burly dweebiness that worked really well for his eventual character development. My condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Nakao-sensei.

I agree. Each GTO version was excellent and he performed the part of Uchiyamada perfectly.

RIP.
