Creator of the Hellsing series.

Hirano first hit the limelight as with Hellsing, He had created many other small Manga’s before hand such as Angel Dust a must read for any fan of his work, Kouta has had limited success but is moving on to bigger and better things with his new title which he is keeping under wraps... 


Hirano started out as an assistant to an unknown mangaka, and describes himself as "horrible" and "lazy" at it. Hirano eventually moved on as a solo artist, creating hentai manga, and he also joined a circle called GUY-YA with Read or Die mangaka Shuutarou Yamada, where the twosome drew hentai of various anime, including Cowboy Bebop and Galaxy Angel. GUY-YA has continued to publish doujinshi as recently as 2005. 
Working as a hentai mangaka, Hirano began putting together the pieces that would eventually become Hellsing-- most notably, the priest Anderson makes an early appearance as a mafia assassin hiding from the police in a church in his ero manga Angel Dust. 
Eventually, Hirano began publishing the manga Hellsing, which was an instant hit and led to two anime adaptations; one a TV series by Gonzo that told its own version of the story, which was unfinished at the time, and the still-in-release Hellsing Ultimate. 

Life After Hellsing 

Hellsing ended in late 2009, and though Hirano's spinoff project Hellsing: The Dawn has not completed its run-- a mere six chapters were released between 2001 and 2009 --Hirano has moved on to a new work, titled Drifters.
