1956- . Sometimes credited, by his own choice, as Toshiki Hirano. Born in Tokyo, Hirano showed a strong aptitude for graphic design and was still a college student in that discipline when he began working part-time at Studios Wombat and Number One. He found full-time employment at Studio Io after showing his skills as an animator on an episode of Doctor Slump. He soon moved to Artland and then AIC, working as an animator on Macross and Urusei Yatsura. However, it was in the video world that his talents for the horrific truly came to the fore, on shows such as Iczer-One and Vampire Princess Miyu (the latter based on a manga by Hirano's wife, Narumi Kakinouchi).
