Taira Yoshiyuki (平 善之(たいらよしゆき)) is a 2nd year high school student at the U-17 Training Camp. He is the former captain of Shitenhouji and considered one half of the Legendary Captains of Shitenhouji with his doubles partner, Hara Tetsuya. He is known more commonly by his nickname, Hirazen. He is ranked number 18 in the Junior All-Japan Junior Representatives.


He wears a patrol cap[1] with a camouflage print and his No.18 badge pinned above the brim. Although he's not seen without his cap in the series, he appears to have an unstyled faux hawk that falls to the right and pokes out from under the cap. There's a charm point near his temple on the opposite side.

When he's not actively making funny faces or cracking jokes, he often has a serious expression on his face.


When Taira is first introduced, he looks relatively serious and has his racquet tucked behind him in his back collar. This is quickly

Hara Tetsuya
Together they make up a perfect comedy act in which Hara is the straight man and Taira is the funny man. They play doubles together at U-17 and are known as the Legendary Captains of Shitenhouji. In the OVA after Shitenhouji loses to Rikkai, Taira calls Hara by his first name suggesting a level of closeness between them. They both relentlessly make fun of Kenya.
