Mike Hanemann, who is titled by his surname "Hanemann", is one of the debut characters from Pop'n Music 15 ADVENTURE.
The dangerous looking, but sweet natured Drill Instructor type of guy.
Pop'n music fan Shimada designs this unique looking character.
He looks kinda familiar looking huh? This character is from the Konami shooter Wartran Troopers. His name is Hanemann, and he is in 3D not 2D. We were dancing for joy when Shimada designed him. He might look average looking, but don't patronize him.
