- — Uchiyama —
Uchiyama or Ucchi (ウッチー) of Bandai is a System Administrator that appears with Emi in front of Balmung in .hack//GIFT to inform him that the dungeon Balmung is exploring is experiencing technical difficulties. Uchiyama then spouts nonsense, confusing Balmung. Uchiyama is named after and voiced by .hack producer Daisuke Uchiyama. Uchiyamada@Bandai, who sends the clear flag emails in the Japanese version of the games, is also based on him. His eyes are censored as a gag, because he is a caricature of a real person. In the Blu-ray version of .hack//GIFT, available in the .hack//LINK Quarantine pack, Uchiyama's head censors the breasts of Helba, Tsukasa, and even Subaru in the credits.
