* JerkassFacade: Some of his more arrogant or stand-offish remarks, especially his comments on winning the award that are what the main characters and viewer first see of him, tend to be to inspire his rivals to do their best.

* BrutalHonesty: Not to Mashiro or Takagi, but the assistants on whether a series will last.
* TheBusCameBack: Returns to Mashiro and Takagi's team when they need an extra assistant for ''Reversi''.
* ButNowIMustGo: When ''Trap'' is cancelled, he has to leave Mashiro and Takagi in order to support his family.
* ConsummateProfessional: He's efficient at his job and a clear communicator.
* FamilyMan: He genuinely wants to work for Mashiro and Takagi, but he has to put the well-being of his wife and children first.
* HenpeckedHusband: He's insistent on returning home promptly, partly because he wants to be with his family and partly because his wife will nag him if he's late.

An assistant for Mashiro and Takagi that was brought on to help with ''Tanto''. After the ''Tanto'''s end, he became one of their permanent assistants because he enjoyed working with Ashirogi Muto and believes he can learn a lot from them.

* AffectionateParody: Appears to be one of more typical protagonists in shonen manga.
* AnimeHair: Makes him stand out among the more realistic hairstyles of the cast.
* BigEater: It's part of his "typical shonen hero" shtick.
* ButtMonkey: Despite working for Mashiro and Takagi for arguably the longest amount of time consecutively, he is quickly and comically surpassed by the other assistants.
* CantCatchUp: Of the Ashirogi Muto assistants that expressed a desire to be a full-time mangaka, he's the only one besides Moriya to never get a series, and unlike the former, none of his works-in-progress were mentioned or reviewed by other characters beyond a title.
* DoingItForTheArt: Or fun in his case; it's why he offered to work for Asirogi Mutou for free until they get another series.
* GenkiGuy: Very loud and energetic, so much so that he could easily be mistaken as a protagonist in a more typical Shonen manga.

Tropes associated with Kazuya:
* TheAlcoholic: Downplayed, but he does drink more than he should. It's one of many negative aspects of his life that Yoshida has to moderate and [[spoiler: that Aoki helps him overcome]].
* BrilliantButLazy: His editor basically has to pull [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bastardry]] in order to get him to do any work at all, but Kazuya is a genuinely funny and imaginative creator.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Mentions in the middle of a conversation that he has a medical condition that causes him to urinate blood.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite the fact he seems to do anything he can to get out of working, he's still quite good at his job. His manga does consistently well throughout the series and the bits they actually show of Otters 11 are genuinely good.
* ButtMonkey: His editor's schemes often don't go well for him, as when his editor gives him a necklace to give as a gift to Aoki, he leaves it in his Porsche, which gets towed when he parks it in front of the building.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler: When a drunk and angry Nakai wants to confront Aoki, Hiramaru confronted him personally instead of calling the police. Due to being pretty weak, Hiramaru got thrown around, but he refused to give up for Aoki's sake.]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: Multiple times, particularly with Aoki, [[spoiler: though once he actually asks her out and starts spending time with her, the two do genuinely fall in love.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: In Episode 23 and 24.
** CastingGag: The manga he found had [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]] on the cover. The "11" of his manga Otter 11 is pronounced as "Ju''[[Manga/{{Bleach}} ichi-go]]''" in Japanese.
* {{Expy}}: He's reputedly based on Hideaki Sorachi, the author of ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''.
* AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted: Whenever Hiramaru gets some a paycheck, particularly in the early parts of the series, it tends to cause him to perk up in a hurry... only to blow it all on fancy cars and other luxury items, and leave himself with no choice but to get back to work to remain solvent.
* HiddenDepths: At first his infatuation with Aoki comes off almost as superficial and pathetic as Nakai's obsession with her... Until we find out Hiramaru actually does respect Aoki as a person and even calls out his editor for using her. When [[spoiler:they get together]], he actually works towards improving himself. Hiramaru might be completely neurotic, but in the end he is really a NiceGuy who has proved he genuinely cares enough about Aoki to try to change his habits for the better.
* HopelessSuitor: For Aoki. [[spoiler:Later subverted since she accepts his love confession and they end up getting married.]]
* HotBlooded: In the weirdest way. When Hiramaru gets depressed, he does it with ''gusto.'' His editor notes that it's actually when he's being all negative that he has the best ideas.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: When his idiosyncrasies are being played for humor, Hiramaru makes people around him ''very'' uncomfortable.
* PinkySwear: [[spoiler:With Aoki, to get serialized again]]
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Aoki.]]
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Otter 11 seems to be based off Hiramaru's life, with him working at a job he hates, getting along poorly with someone named Yoshida and wanting to live like an otter rather than a human, but being forced to go on out of responsibility to someone else.
* TheSlacker: Particularly early on, when he sneaks out of his apartment to "hide" at the other mangaka's houses.
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler:He finally asks Aoki to go out with him, and she says yes (as long as he keeps drawing manga). He later did the same for Nakai, hiring him on as an assistant not just in spite of all the JerkAss behaviour Nakai's been showing, but ''because'' of it (though they were both drunk/punchdrunk and Hiramaru actually worried he was going to end up like Nakai.)]]

* AuthorAppeal: Since Mashiro is an illustrator, his writing preferences don't get much coverage. However he's noted to prefer more realistic drawing with darker than average color tones.



* AuthorAppeal: Generally prefers writing science fiction and mystery stories.



* SatelliteCharacter: Miyoshi appears to care more about Ashirogi Muto than her own marriage. Although her worries for Takagi's success and welfare (such as when he goes sleepless trying to figure out how to keep ''Tanto'' going when he clearly cannot, or when he spends long enough helping Shiratori get ''Rabuta & Peace'' serialized that he essentially leaves Mashiro, and even her, to their own devices) are good precedents. The latter case even nearly drives a wedge between them, and she only calms down thanks to Azuki's reassurance.

* AuthorAppeal: Most types of stories actually, but the ones he writes and excels at are generally fantasies.



* AuthorAppeal: Romance and fantasy. Early on, she specifically notes that ideal manga should be inspiring and hopeful.



* AuthorAppeal: He's a big fan of more old-school Shonen manga that emphasize an extreme adrenaline rush.

----
* AdaptedOut: The only "main" mangaka to be absent from the anime.
* AuthorAppeal: As noted below, Shizuka's manga are heavily influenced by his life, with HappinessInSlavery elements becoming dominant in the plot after he discovers hostess clubs. Even after becoming disillusioned with hostess clubs, the trope is still played straight only with his focus now shifted to "False Love".

ShrinkingViolet: It took Yamahisa ''months'' of playing video games with him in silence and speaking through chat rooms before they could have a conversation in person.



* AuthorAppeal: Dogs, oh so very much. His only manga also had an emphasis on communication and goodness, which likely stems from his mother issues.



* DudeLooksLikeALady

to:

* DudeLooksLikeALadyDudeLooksLikeALady: He's very soft-spoken and it's not helped by his contant blushing and preference for fluffy sweaters.



* InnocentProdigy: Granted, he had Takagi helping him with the plot, but for someone who only drew as a hobby until recently, Shun is noted to be incredibly gifted as an artist and gets serialized after his first pitch for a series.



* SkilledButNaive: Incredibly so. Despite no formal training, he's a talented artist that got a published series way sooner than Mashiro and Takagi (granted, Takagi was helping him after his years of experience). However, his first couple of weeks of living on his own resulted in making constant house calls to Kaya for help with basic tasks.
