Meisuke Nueno, better known as "Nūbē", is the main protagonist of Jigoku Sensei Nube and it's sequel Jigoku Sensei Nube Neo and Jigoku Sensei Nube S. Nūbē is a young man who has tanned skin, black slightly spiky hair, catlike brown/hazel eyes and has huge bushy eyebrows. Nūbē can be both a great, fun-loving or a serious, focused man dependent on what you see him for. On matters of either spiritual or educational importance, he is a serious individual focused on doing the job perfectly. Not only does this allow him to conquer one yōkai crisis after another, but it also allows him to be a bit obsessive towards making sure his students learn what they need to and don't fool around or forget anything. (a problem considering the underachieving attributes of several of his male students). Outside his work, though, Nūbē is a fun, almost happy-go-lucky guy with too many faults to his name. He is always chasing after beautiful women (especially the more buxom ones), spending the little money he does have on pachinko, and consistently starving his way to payday while living off whatever they serve in school or the freebies he can get, or finding a way to get rich quick (even if it means using the Oni no Te to do so), all the while trying to avoid the scorns or troubles that his rivals throw his way. While he doesn't like living the teacher's life a good chunk of the time, Nūbē does find that it does have its rewards. But in his youth, he has the same attitude as Hiroshi Tateno, albeit with a few differences. But after he saw his teacher Minako sacrificing herself for her pupil, he decided to soften up, and take her as inspiration for both achieving his dreams of being a teacher and an exorcist, just like her.
