Before the outbreak, Kohta's demeanor is one that is timid, carefree, and sanguine. Yet, at the same time he was constantly suppressing of his frustration he felt form the frequent bullying he suffered at school; all for the sake of having a "normal" life. As a result, when "they" started to emerge, Kohta was one of the few people who readily accepted to the change needed to ensure his and his comrades' survival, finally being able to unleash all the frustrations that he has accumulated so far. And while normally capable of maintaining a cool and level-headed demeanor (more so than Saya), Kohta has exhibited a sadistic and almost maniacal side of himself, to the point where he actually displays a slasher-style smile that shows whenever he kills "them" in cold blood. He has grown very attached to Alice Maresato and can often be found playing with her. He also seems to have crush on Saya and is seen at times getting jealous when Saya gets close and caring with Takashi.
Personal Life Edit
Hirano attended Fujimi Academy until The Outbreak in the series occurred. He previously went on a month-long trip to America where he was trained by the U.S. military contractor Blackwater U.S.A., which furthered his obsession over weapons. It's thanks to this that he's become an excellent marksman with many different types of guns as one of the reasons for his group surviving the zombie apocalypse so far. He also collects various weapons and ammunition for the group during their travels. Due to his excessive knowledge about firearms and military training, he serves as the groups primary gunslinger.
Throughout the upsurge, he grew close with his fellow survivors, especially Takashi Komuro, whom he considers his best friend, Alice Maresato and Saya Takagi, whom he has deep feelings for.
In Wrestling Edit
Hirano performs best in the range of a powerhouse grappler, and remarkably, has had his hand in a few high-flying maneuvers, showing appearances can be deceiving and there's more to him than meets the eye. Unsurprisingly, with the current situation of Tokonosu City being a wasteland for "them", he's not afraid to spill some blood from his opponents', including his own in a "hardcore environment."
