An Asian-American college student majoring in literature. Endo has a strong sense of justice, is outgoing and fairly bold, but can be anxious, overzealous and clumsy. His best friends and classmate is Roxanne Turner and Brian Miyama, and before his accident, he was very timid and unadventurous. During his pursuit of ghosts, he finds friends in Father Macintosh and the Rinmai family, and eventually falls for Eva Dumay.
Family: His mother and father are Gina Ford and Norio Hiramatsu, whom met in Osaka and are both teachers. His older sister Fumiko - age 34 in the present - was mean and neglective of him, to the point where Endo was scared of her until his late teens.
Author's Notes: Endo's development was based on the characters Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, and Gohonmatsu Seki from Osamu Tezuka's Swallowing the Earth. What I found so cool in Gohonmatsu and hoped to capture in Endo was Gohonmatsu's borderline badassity - there were so many scenes where like five guys would come at him and Gohonmatsu would just toss them around. He, Eva and Andrew cameo in Hyperspace Bunny #4.
Endo's Tools: Endo predominately uses a wooden katana, which has to be oiled weekly with a special temple oil. He also has an electronic stun gun that Macintosh has made for Endo and himself, but this is only used in freezing the ghosts or forcing them to reveal their true forms. Both items can be stored in Endo's shoulder sling.
