Hiroyasu Ueda is the owner/manager of Chiroru (Tirol in the anime) and Chii(Elda)'s employer. He was formerly Yumi Omura's and Hideki Motosuwa's.


Hiroyasu is a very tall and handsome man with dark eyes and black hair. Despite his young appearance, he is actually 39 years old and he is usually seen wearing a baker's uniform.


Hiroyasu is a very kind man, but he can also be insecure with himself and gets uncomfortable when any topic that involves love comes up in a conversation. Another aspect is the way he still blushes when embarrassed.

Role in the Series[]

Hiroyasu Ueda (植田 弘康, Ueda Hiroyasu?) is the owner of Chiroru, a local bakery which Yumi Omura (and in the manga, Hideki Motosuwa) once worked in and which Chi ends up working at. He is thirty-nine years old, although he looks as though he is only in his mid-20's, at one point noting jokingly that he has a "baby face".

He too has suffered a trauma involving persocoms. When he first opened his bakery, he bought a persocom to help with math and accounting, which he admits he is terrible at. He eventually fell in love with this persocom and then married her, but she developed a hard disk fault which resulted in the gradual degradation of her memory, until she remembered almost nothing at all.


Rarely, she would suddenly recall small fragments of memories from her life with Hiroyasu. He could not bring himself to have her repaired because her memories might be lost completely in the process of transferring them to a new hard drive, and he felt she would not be the same person if this happened. Soon, her memory degraded to the point that she could not remember anything for more than a few seconds at a time, and Hiroyasu had to keep a constant watch on her to prevent her from wandering away. One night while walking with his persocom, Hiroyasu, lost in thought, walked into the middle of the street, unaware of an oncoming car. In a final moment of clarity, his persocom pushed him out of the way and was herself run over. Her last word to Hiroyasu was "Konnichiwa"; the default greeting for a newly activated persocom with no memories.


Yumi Before She Dies

Hiroyasu and Yumi Oumura were in love in the past, but broke up when Yumi quit her job at the bakery after discovering that the persocom he was previously married to was too named "Yumi" and feared she could never live up to the other Yumi. Through the help of Chii and Hideki, he and Yumi Omura resume their relationship. Voiced by: Yuji Ueda (Japanese), Steven Blum (English)
