Megane is the intensely idiosyncratic Supreme Council Chairman of the Stormtroopers and as such concocts numerous schemes to gain Lum's attention and protect her purity from Ataru. He is a manic otaku who has an obsession with Nazi Germany paraphernalia and often gives eccentric speeches, gradually going hysterical as he goes on. However, he usually immediately calms down after such speeches and has surprising amount of common sense for someone so hysterical. He usually views Ataru as an enemy, but during their leisure time they get along like friends and often go to gyuudon restaurants and soba stands together. He is also writing a book entitled History of Tomobiki, but the only time he reads part of it aloud is during Beautiful Dreamer.
Megane was designed by series director Oshii Mamoru after his voice actor Chiba Shigeru. Chiba, a notorious adlibber, was able to shape Megane into the high-strung character he became. There are many instances when Megane takes the place of Shirai Kousuke from the manga, but Megane is more often than not antagonistic towards Ataru whereas Kousuke was portrayed as being his best friend.
Megane is the only human character to be depicted finishing food prepared by Lum.
- The parallel universe with swapped genders featured a female Megane who was quite pleased to encounter a female Lum...so pleased as to make Lum rather uncomfortable. What this might imply about our world's Megane is an interesting question.
