High School of the Dead’s Hirano Kouta – Weird Wednesdays
Posted July 21, 2010on:
Presented for your consideration: Hirano Kohta from High School of the Dead:
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:
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.
