The Demonic Vice Chief of the Shinsengumi, Toshiro Hijikata, strikes
fear into the hearts of his enemies and his allies with a single glance.
His strict adherence to order and discipline often puts him at odds
with Gintoki Sakata. Despite his grizzled nicotine loving exterior,
Hijikata has a strong loyalty to Isao Kondo and would fight for him
above all else. The only thing greater than his respect for Kondo is his
love for mayonnaise.
When Sentai Filmworks dubbed the Benizakura compilation movie, Blake
Shepard played Hijikata. In the Crunchyroll and Ocean Productions dub of the third series,
Michael Adamthwaite played Hijikata. For the Hulu dub of the first
series, Hijikata was played by Travis Roig.
