|~ Kaneo Takarada|
Kaneo Takarada (in Japanese: 宝多金男, Takarada Kaneo) is a supporting antagonist in the 2014 anime Kill la Kill. He is the student council president of Naniwa Kinman High School, an academy that has jurisdiction over the city of Osaka.
He is voiced by Makoto Awane in the Japanese version, and by Ben Diskin in the English dubbed version.
Kaneo is a tall man with pale skin, olive eyes, and light brownish hair. He wears glasses, a white collared shirt, black and white stripe pants, and a large coat of the same pattern.
As the heir to his family's "Takarada Conglomerate", Kaneo has an almost absurd level of wealth, which he is more than proud of using to get whatever he wants.
Takarada believes that throughout human history, man's ultimate motivation for everything has always been money, so by flaunting his wealth over people, he can make them obey his every whim.
Despite his seemingly evil motivations and actions, he is loyally aligned with the organization "Nudist Beach," which aims to protect all life on Earth no matter the personal sacrifice. Kaneo shows this surprising selflessness when he spends every last cent of his beloved wealth towards funding S.S. Naked Sun's construction.
