He was also Baseball Mask from GoRanger, and had some prominent anime roles:
Nagai is best known for his role as Happosai in Ranma 1/2, Karin in Dragon Ball and Chairman Isaac Netero in the 2011 Hunter x Hunter anime. His final anime role was in the second episode of Space Dandy as the Phantom Ramen Shop owner.

Outside of anime, he voiced the popular Baseball Mask monster from Himitsu Sentai Goranger and Juuken Sentai Gekiranger's Master Xia Fu. He later reprised both roles in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. He also did some dubbing roles as he is also voiced Professor Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films and Yoda in the Star Wars films.

He is also the Narrator of Mobile Suit Gundam, Kamen Rider G, Record of Lodoss War and Tatakae!! Ramenman.
