High School of the Dead’s Hirano Kouta – Weird Wednesdays

Posted on: July 21, 2010

Presented for your consideration: Hirano Kohta from High School of the Dead:

Megane? Megane!He’s a fat, sharpshooting otaku with a glasses fetish and a yen for military hardware.

Also presented for your consideration: Hirano Kouta, the author of Hellsing, as of his appearance at Anime Expo in 2005:


Back then, when they announced the Hellsing Ultimate OVA, he went on the record as saying he has a glasses fetish. Does he have a gun fetish, too? You be the judge:

Seras Victoria with her Harkonnen... and more.According to the Japanese Wikipedia, Hirano Kouta himself is very much aware of his manga doppelganger. He put a note in one of his Hellsing afterwords that said “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go kill zombies at my high school.”

There are definitely worse ways to be paid homage.

THIS IS TOTALLY EPIC! Not really, I wasn’t as excited about helsing. Drifters, however, it really cool, check it out. (I thought it was by the guy who did Helsing, anyway.) Manga, check it out at the usual places I guess.

Oh, riiiiight… How to forget our favorite onanist author? Is he still prone to “being obnoxious”?

Is Kouta Hirano(author of Hellsing) and Kohta Hirano(high school of the dead) the same person?? :O
