Occupation: High School Student, Student Council President
El-Hazard Power: The ability to communicate with the Bugrom
The Trip to El-Hazard:
Jinnai is the main villain in El-Hazard. He's had a rivalry with
Makoto since they were small boys, though Makoto doesn't know that.
At the beginning of the series, Jinnai is in a Student Council Meeting
where they're accusing him of taking the School Festival money,
and has tried to put the blame on Makoto. Because he's so mad, he
goes and picks on Makoto telling him his experiment is noisy, and
he needs to turn it off. When Makoto tells him he has full permission,
Jinnai is convinced that Makoto is trying to overthrow him. Nanami
tells him he's nuts, which makes him become angrier, he threatens
to revoke the Science Club funding if Makoto doesn't cooperate.
To get even with Makoto, he tries to put up a poster blaming Makoto
for cheating, but the student council catches him. Since Plan A
is ruined, on to Plan B! Jinnai goes into the science lab where
Makoto has his experiment, and he throws a whole bunch of sweats
from the girls gym lockers everywhere. After he trips on a cord,
he realizes Makoto's experiment is a much better target for revenge.
He sabotages it, , though Makoto tried to stop him, and it opens
the portal to El-Hazard.
When Jinnai arrives in El-Hazard, he is captured by the Bugrom who
take him to Queen Diva, all the while there Jinnai is yelling and
screaming and cursing Makoto. Queen Diva explains that she is leader
of the Bugrom, and conqueror of El-Hazard. Jinnai explains that
he too is a conqueror, and President of Shinanome High. Queen Diva
and Jinnai strike a deal and become partners in crime.
Jinnai's power is the ability to speak to the Bugrom. It's sort
of like knowing 2 languages, and being able to talk and speak in
either without thinking about it. It's a good thing Jinnai knows
Bugrom, because it just sounds like, well, a different language
The World of Love:
Power. Jinnai loves power, that's about it. I think he truly cares
about Ifurita in the end, but she won't ever come first.
