Personality Profile

Hiroko-chan is blood type AB: perky, an overachiever who likes to get involved in many things. She likes to play pool, and wipes the table with the guys who play against her. She always throws herself into action and is not afraid to stand up against an overwhelming force. She dates (men only), and has a very active social life.

Hiroko reads science fiction and fantasy as well as manga. She does not write fan fic, but has been known to read them from time to time. She is a cosplayer and prefers to cosplay characters who are individuals, but is willing to cosplay in groups as well. She loves wearing body armor, but will not wear glasses.

She is more involved in the social aspects of Otakon, but is by no means a dumb bunny (and does not like to be confused with Misty May). She loves everything about the convention, particularly Karaoke (where she has a pleasant, if undistinguished voice, and knows the English and Japanese lyrics to the Star Blazers theme song), LARP, and Video Gaming (she is very good at Dance Dance Revolution). She loves to shop in the Dealer's Room, and can bargain with the best of them. She knows massive amounts of trivia about classic and current anime and manga as well as literature. She has smarts to spare: she speaks, reads and writes Japanese as well as English, and is not afraid to talk to other people, fans or otherwise.

Her relationship with her brother is not the warped one often seen in anime. She's the elder, and she's proud of her status, so she's a little bossy. She devils her brother Hiroshi and teases him, though she loves him dearly. On the other hand, she doesn't always want him tagging along or embarrassing her. She does, however, drag him into social things that he is not always interested in at first. Hiroko is a student and loves the anime industry, so who knows where she will be when she graduates!

Personality Profile

Hiroshi is 15 months younger than his sister, Hiroko. He likes red bean ice cream best, but will eat almost anything, and he never seems to put on weight. He has red hair that is mostly straight and is enormously fond of his pony tail!

Hiroshi likes girls and enjoys dating, but he is not ready for a serious girlfriend yet. Besides, he hasn't found one that can take a motorcycle apart as fast as his sister. His sister, by the way, can pilot a space ship with the best of them; mecha as well, but she's not anywhere near Hiroshi's standard. He is a naturally gifted pilot, but he doesn't have the ambition to take over. He likes to fly, he likes anything mechanical, but it's all for fun. His attitude is, "If it's not for fun, then what's the point?"

He will cosplay if he gets talked into it, but tends to like dramatic characters, not cute or comic ones. It took a lot of fast talking to get him into the Cheshire Cat suit for Otakon 2002. He enjoyed himself once he got there, but he wasn't sure about it to begin with.

He has a decent voice, but is not interested in karaoke at all. In fact, he makes fun of his sister for it; not because he has anything against karaoke, but just because it's his sister up there singing. He loves video games and will play them until he beats them, but he's not intense about them unless his sister is beating him. It kills his sister that he *could* beat her at Dance Dance Revolution if he wanted to, but he can't be bothered. He likes RPGs, but he won't play with his sister in the game.

Hiroshi loves to do models, mostly of mecha or machines. He is also an artist; he sketches his own doujinshi, but generally they have a lot of explosions and gears in them. His favorite part of "Spirited Away" was the gears. His secret shame is Kimagure Orange Road, which he loves. And as for anime trivia? Well, once in a while he'll come up with a really obscure answer that nobody else knows. It's not that he doesn't know the trivia, it's just that he can't be bothered to remember all that stuff or compete.

Hiroshi is also a student, but when he graduates, he plans on going into the space program to see the planets and solar systems. No one has managed to convince him thus far that those things don't exist quite the way they do in anime. As her younger brother he feels it is his solemn duty to tease Hiroko, and he manages to play all sorts of practical jokes on her. He loves her dearly, and won't stand for anyone else poking fun at her, although he does so all the time. He will shake off his lazy attitude to do right by his sister.
