Encho-sensei in the anime

Bunta Takakura (高倉文太), Principal Enzo in the Vitello, Phuuz and Dutch dubs, is the 48 years old principal of Futaba Kindergarten, he's often referred to as "Enchō" (園長), which means "Kindergarten/Nursery School Principal." He has an punch perm hairstyle. His Yakuza-like appearance is often misunderstood by the people in the neighborhood and even within the students of the kindergarten in some occasions, which often acts as a recurring joke in the series (often worsened by Shin-chan by calling him "Kumichō" (組長 Godfather / Gang boss). He actually has a tender heart and good attitude. Takakura-san is shown to like women's wrestling in episode 131-B. His wife is Mrs. Takakura.

His first appearance was in episode 4a. He drives the bus of the Futaba Kindergarten every day (although in the first episodes of the series we can see another driver in the bus who is totally unknown).
