You're finally motivated. I'm so happy.

Hiro Kitazoe to Masato Kageura, in Haruaki Azuma.[1]


Hiro Kitazoe ((きた)(ぞえ) (ひろ) Kitazoe Hiro?) is a B-rank (formerly A-rank) Gunner and a member of Kageura Squad.

Appearance[]

Kitazoe is a light-skinned young man with short, spiky hair, a hooked nose and small, round eyes. His chubby constitution belies a muscular body.[5] Standing at 189 cm (6 ft 2⅖ in),[6] he is one of the tallest Border agents. He appears to have a preference for cargo pants,[1][7][8] light-colored, loose sweaters with simple[1] or, more commonly, no motifs,[7][8] and heavy, padded jackets.[1][9]

Kitazoe's uniform is comprised of a double-breasted, black military jacket which folds over the right side, where the coat is fastened by a vertical row of five buttons. On the wearer's right breast are two piped patch pockets closed by the same flap, and a second pair recurs at the height of the wearer's abdomen. Kageura Unit's logo is emblazoned on the jacket's high collar. Gray plain button epaulettes adorn the jacket's shoulders. The attire is completed by light gray cargo pants with a piped patch pocket and a zipper on the front of each leg, and black combat boots.[10]

Personality[]

Kitazoe is easily moved to tears[1][11] and very open in his displays of emotion.[1][12][13][11][14] Nonetheless, he is normally laid-back[15] and level-headed, even in the face of imminent defeat.[16][17] He used to be reserved and to shy away from fights, but Kuruma's influence made him more of a do-gooder and increased his empathy.[5]

Quotes[]

  • (To Masato Kageura) "You're finally motivated. I'm so happy."[1]

  • (To Kageura) "Seeing you have more friends makes me so happy."[13]
  • "Yuzuru has a girlfriend now... That makes me so happy."[11]
  • (To Tōma) "No matter how hungry I got, I can't imagine myself eating a bug."[20]
  • (To Kageura) "Don't sweat it, man. We'll get our groove back."[15]

Trivia[]

  • Kitazoe likes strawberries, spring rolls, donmono (rice-with-toppings), and mahjong.[6][21]
  • Kitazoe has a motorbike license[22] and a motorbike.[9]
  • His primary gun Trigger is based on a MGL-140 grenade launcher.
  • The author refers to Kitazoe as "a lion who can gain weight" and as a "lovable mascot".[5]

  22. Daisuke Ashihara: Q: Is there any one of 18 and above who has a driver’s license for a car or a bike? A: Aside from Reiji who has already driven in the story, it seems Fuyushima, Azuma, Suwa, Tsutsumi, Kako, and Kakizaki have normal driver’s licenses. The top brass and Sawamura have licenses too. Tachikawa doesn’t as you might expect. Zoe has a motorbike license, and Kage and Tōma have motorized bicycle licenses. It seems Arafune and Hokari want motorbike licenses too.
