Toshizō Hijikata (土方 歳三 Hijikata Toshizō?) is the Shinsengumi's second vice commander. Hijikata hides his compassion behind a cold and ruthless front, and is known as "the demon of the Shinsengumi". A brilliant strategist and fighter, Hijikata's talent for battle is extraordinary. When dealing with enemies, his method is highly practical and often reckless. He counts Kondō, Yamanami, and Okita among his closest friends, and is a stern master to his page Tetsu. His hobby consists of writing haiku.


  • Hijikata is loosely based off of the historical figure Hijikata Toshizō.
  • Like the historical figure, he was feared among the Shinsengumi and in Kyoto.
