Hiro Shishigami (獅子神 皓, Shishigami Hiro) is a high school student and a criminal. He is the antagonist turn protagonist

Appearance Edit

Hiro was a young man with short, navy hair and black-brown eyes. He has a particularly pretty face, to the point that he attracts a lot of attention from females around him. He is also shown to be at least of medium height, potentially tall.

Personality Edit

Although he appears kind and polite, Hiro was a psychopath who uses his cybernetic power to murder people that annoy him, or slaughter families to make him feel alive. He believes that with his new power, he was now above everyone else, and no one on the planet can stop him. However, despite his homicidal desires, Hiro is not completely monstrous. He was shown saving and helping people at multiple points, both unprompted and also as guided by those he cares for. This suggests that Hiro has some humanity lingering in his system, as he was also shown to love his mother dearly and care for a close few around him, such as Ando or Shion Watanabe. Although Hiro's cybernetics might contribute his sociopathy, other factors such as living with his mother in a rundown apartment and his father having another family, the frustrations of high school life, and dealing with bullies might have also be responsible for becoming the person he used to be.

Plot Edit

Hiro was an average high school student who was unfortunate enough to be caught in the blast of a UFO explosion. The extraterrestrials, not intending to kill any intelligent life, decided to remake Hiro, replacing his organic body with a cybernetic one. This results in Hiro gaining extra ordinary powers. Ichiro Inuyashiki was caught in the UFO blast as well and his body was also remade with cybernetics.

With his new powers, Hiro feels like he's not human anymore. To feel alive and human once more, He goes into different cities and murders entire families. He started killing after witnessing, one day after coming from school, a man killing himself by jumping onto the train's station rails.[1] By seeing other people's life vanishing away, he feels alive.

Hiro's childhood friend, Naoyuki Ando, who is in his class is victim of bullying by other classmates and that causes him to skip on many classes. To help his friend get out of that situation, Hiro savagely kill the bullies while they're at school. Seeing his friend kill people scared Naoyuki and he decided to break his friendship with Hiro.

Abilities Edit

Like Inuyashiki, Hiro gains a cybernetic body, weapons and unnatural powers. These powers and weaponry are the same as Inuyashiki's.

  • Superhuman Strength
  • Superhuman Durability
  • Laser Blasters
  • Mini Rockets (Live Action, replaced Laser Blasters)
  • Telekinesis
  • Technokinesis and Technopathy
  • Jet-Propelled Flight
  • Self Destruction Bomb (inside Hiro's Body)

Cause of Death Edit

Anime: A massive asteroid was heading towards Earth. Ichiro went up to space and tried to destroy the asteroid before crashing towards the earth, but he didn't have enough water to keep on firing destructive lasers at the asteroid. Just as he was about to give up, Hiro arrives at the asteroid, in his injured condition. Hiro told Ichiro that he wanted to save the lives he cared about, such as his foster father, Shion Watanabe and her family. After running up a simulation, he told Ichiro to push his eyes inwards to activate a self-destruction sequence, as it is powerful enough to destroy the asteroid. Hiro kneels down at the asteroid and closed his eyes while Ichiro pushed both of his eyes before moving away from him. Hiro self-destructed and died on the spot, causing a bright and massive explosion on the asteroid.

Live Action: After the final battle between Ichiro and Hiro, Hiro managed to escape when he was defeated. He is still alive, but he has lost an arm and has a hole in his chest. (As shown in the scene of Hiro seeing his childhood friend, Naoyuki Ando, in his apartment.)

  • Hiro was a big fan of the One Piece manga series.
