Daisuke Hiraoka (
It was a shithole. Crappy people are only capable of producing crappy work. But despite that, I worked my ass off trying to get things done. ~ From Episode 22
According to Yano, in his younger days, Hiraoka was a passionate guy. He displayed many leadership qualities during his time in college and took his passion very seriously. However, after facing many difficulties as a rookie production assistant, he began to despise the job he initially had so much passion for. He became cynical and neglectful, only focusing on getting the job done rather than ensuring its quality. This experience also caused him to adopt a bad attitude, which causes him to butt heads with many of the other staff members at Musashino.
In the movie, even though he quit from Musani due to the Timp Hippo incident, he is still so ideal that can cheers Aoi Miyamori up.
When Hiraoka was in college, Erika Yano and Hisamitsu Isokawa was his college mate. After graduating, he has started his animation career. However, Hiraoka quickly faced harsh frustration, made him cynical year after a year.
When he entered Musashino Animation, it's his fifth job in his five years. Hiraoka's complaining and cynical character also make the other staffs displeased. One of the examples is that he opposes Hironori Madoka's retaking, which increase their conflict and result in fighting each other eventually.
After the Timp Hippo incident, Hiraoka left Musani to become a producer.
