Akira Tachibana (立花 洸 Tachibana Akira?) is the father of Hibiki Tachibana.

History

Formerly known as Akira Morisaki.

Exposed to unbearable amounts of stress both in and outside of his home, he cast aside his family and his workplace and then disappeared.

After he distanced himself from Tokyo he scraped together a living by working various part-time jobs and moving from place to place. When he eventually settled briefly in Ibaraki Prefecture he was working at a gas station when by a twist of fate he encountered a girl who he recognized that used to play with his daughter, along with Hibiki, his actual daughter.

His personality was that of a cheerful, doting parent. He had a strong sense of responsibility, and was a positive problem-solver. However…over time he lost that outlook and began wearing a superficial smile, which eventually lead to him completely averting from the pain and stress of the situation, almost like a different person.

However, he was inspired by his chance meeting with Hibiki and contacted her. He decided he could come face-to-face with her, if nothing else. Was that decision made because somewhere within his heart, the passion he once held might still smolder inside?[1]

Relationships

Hibiki Tachibana - Hibiki is shown to be troubled by him due to the fact that he didn't accept her when she was recovering in the past. This is clearly shown at the end of Episode 7 of GX, when she immediately runs away upon seeing him. In the end, he makes up with his daughter, claiming he can't run away from the fact he's her dad. At the end of the season she is seen running with him throughout her old neighborhood as they high-five. In a post-credits scene, he finally takes up the courage to make amends with his wife and family himself, and after a brief moment of doubt from Hibiki's mother, he almost gives up, until Hibiki holds their hands, saying she won't let go easily, and leads them inside happily.
