Afill

Explanation

  •  
  • The ability to pull a scene together is not just limited to big-wheel actors. There are numerous performers like Afill who specialize in bit parts, who although they contribute little to the drama, can competently bring a scene together in the same way. They are like the actors in period dramas who specialize in getting killed off. There's also something pleasing about the fact that he was named Afill simply because it resembled "duck" ("ahiru" in Japanese), and this character is typical of the period when Tezuka Osamu was writing manga-esque Manga.
