Hiro is an idealistic high school senior who gets the kind of rush from defeating the final bosses of video games that most of his peers are getting from sex, drugs, or heavy metal. After encountering a mysterious old man and receiving a tarnished old lamp that DOES in fact hold a genie inside, Hiro accidentally turns his world into a battle of good versus evil, transforming him into a hero and granting magical powers to a handful of people in his city. Spurred to fight the increasingly more bizarre Forces of Darkness by his new sidekick, the smart-mouthed slime creature Goo, Hiro revels in the possession of the power he's always wished he could have in his life. However, why was he given this power to begin with...?

Hiro's central characteristic is his caution. Although cheerful and optimistic by nature, he's the type who asks questions BEFORE charging in and getting flattened by the giant beast. After all, he's a gamer, not a daredevil, and once he realizes that the situation he's in has become his reality and there's no GameFAQ to tell him what to do, he becomes much more careful than your typical RPG hero. He cares about others a great deal and will go well out of his way to ensure the happiness and safety of those he cares about, although he is not always the most perceptive person and may thus cause others pain without realizing until it is too late. Some of his favorite video games are Last Imagining VI, Dragon Knight VIII, and Disterra II.
