Profile

Hiroshi Takeba is a fifty-something widowed middle manager, growing steadily more gray with slowly less hair. As befits this position, he works far too much and spends most of his nominally free time dealing with his coworkers. Since the not-entirely-welcome return, after a several-year absence, of his (in Hiroshi's opinion) delinquent son Kazuo, Hiroshi has also spent a fair amount of his nominally free time in the company of teenagers. This would be bad enough in itself. But those teenagers are overtly magical, and while Hiroshi once might have had that capacity himself, during the intervening decades it's withered to the same stale and regimented gray as the rest of his life. Whether this will lead somewhere good or somewhere terrible remains to be seen.

Title Date Scene Summary
For the Coming Year December 31st, 2018 By chance, Makoto and Hiroshi both end up at the ECFH on New Year's Eve, and exchange good wishes and more for the year to come.
The Mechanics of Miracles November 7th, 2017 Korma Chameleon delivers! Rashmi tries to help Hiroshi. She does, though not precisely in the way she wanted to.
Mother Hen Old Dog October 15th, 2017 In which an attempt is made to introduce Hiroshi to Aunt Sandra.
A Pleasant And Reasonable Conversation October 11th, 2017 Lacrima meets Hiroshi Takeba. Not, in fact, for the first time. Somehow Hiroshi manages to turn
Stress, Torsion, and Madeleines September 25th, 2017 Breakfast with Hiroshi Takeba, Mamoru, and Masato Sanjoin is an adventure in awkwardness and eventually laughter at Kunzite's expense. He's like Spock at the end of like every episode of Star Trek.
The Nature of Fate September 24th, 2017 Hiroshi Takeba, Kunzite's dad, is staying at the ECFH for a few days. Mamoru has an awkward talk with him, not realizing that he has to take notes every day to remember any of this.
In Which Gull And Jupiter Suplex A House September 24th, 2017 Hiroshi Takeba was stuck in a Phantom Empire mirror when everyone else in Tokyo was. The problem occurred when the purification of all the Terribads didn't release him, because his monster was SO MUCH WORSE. Kazuo and Mamoru called in the big guns. Includes Super Mecha Unity Knight Sailor Moon and her chibi StarBits!
Rose Tea and Jeopardy July 4th, 2017 Makoto sits down with Hiroshi in her Tea Lair. And is normal at him. He is remarkably unprepared for this.
Facets June 20th, 2017 Naru checks up on Kunzite's dad. Kunzite's dad is ... apparently starting into a full-on conspiracy-theory-style panic. Naru performs a gentle interrupt. Okay, mostly gentle.
In Which They Finally Actually Break Kunzite's Dad June 19th, 2017 Hiroshi turns up at the ECFH to check on his son, who missed their obligatory and resented weekly meeting yesterday and then hasn't been answering his phone or texts. Usagi explains this is because her mother has a medical emergency! Saved! Right? Except that awkward conversations are somehow more awkward when one person in them is completely failing to notice another person is a ghost... and then Hiroshi *stops* failing to notice. Oops.
That Grade Is Not A 30 May 14th, 2017 Usagi runs into Kazuo. And Kazuo's father. Who promptly starts considering the possibility of grandchildren. NO HIROSHI SO VERY NO.
Children's Day May 5th, 2017 Kunzite's dad comes to visit the ECFH. This is both more and less disastrous than one might expect. But nobody dies! Or gets disowned! Or gets thrown off the balcony! Mako's cookies do, in fact, save a life.
Father's Day January 14th, 2017 Mamoru goes to talk with Hiroshi Takeba. AKA Kunzite's dad. ... yeah, they're related, all right.

Title Date Scene Summary
Missed Appointments (Kunzite) September 17th, 2017 Turns out there are things Kazuo dislikes more than breakfast with his dad.
Evidence (Hiroshi Takeba) June 21st, 2017 Memories of magic don't usually last, without being altered to an acceptable form. Hiroshi Takeba is not as flexible as Kenji Tsukino, and does not have his heart. But there are other things he does have.
This Is What Progress Looks Like (Kunzite) May 14th, 2017 Kazuo and Hiroshi Takeba are going to visit Akemi Takeba. Since she's been dead for twenty-some years, the trip is morbid as well as awkward.
