Hiro Nakamura – The Newest Japanese Hero

Hiro Nakamura - Heroes


Who hasn’t heard of Hiro Nakamura? If you haven’t immediately head on to NBC’s official website and catch up on the latest episode of their series that’s taken the world of television by storm – HEROES. From the very start Hiro has been one of my favorite characters. Played by Masi Oka, who is more than worthy of an entire post for himself, Hiro Nakamura is one of the funniest but coolest characters of the series.

Hiro is a programmer at Yamagoto Industries in Tokyo, Japan who bored with his work and is convinced that he has the power to bend the space-time continuum. He is of course right and is able to go to New York using his powers, which starts his adventures.

Hiro is just one of the many people with extra-ordinary powers around which the TV series Heroes revolves. Watch even just one episode, if you haven’t yet and I can guarantee you that you will be hooked…like all Hiro’s fans are.
