Matsubara (Macchan) is Tatsumi’s long-suffering second-in-command. A lot of Giant Killing’s humor is centered on Macchan. He is short, fat, slow, expressive, easily controlled, easily irritated. For each day of the summer camp, Macchan wore an unusual costume, just because Tatsumi had told him to. Later in the series, Macchan often gave piggyback rides to Tatsumi.
Macchan was a striker long, long ago. When Tatsumi was a player ten years ago, Macchan was a low-level coach. He has been with ETU for a long time and is very knowledgeable about soccer and ETU. His weakness seems to be his lack of creativity. Many fans would agree that Tatsumi and Macchan complement each other well.He is also a Manchester City supporter.
