It sure is odd, to look back and remember that Zan started out being molded on the manga/anime heroes, with the unkempt, too-long hair and the rash loose-cannon attitude that the average male manga hero sports. Zan used to be that way, although he always had to share the main-character spotlight with the array of Galaxion characters of whom we were also pretty fond. It’s a rough job trying to stick to your stereotype when the rest of the cast isn’t cooperating!
Although part of me still wants to think of him as the hero of the story, he really isn’t. He’s kept some of the guy-with-the-hair attributes, such as the need to move to the beat of a different drummer, but these days he’s really a geek at heart.
