Hijikata Toshizô is based on a well-known historical figure of the same name.
He is a part of the "Echoes of a Beautiful Banquet" story arc along with Ushiwakamaru, Amakusa, Okita and Genji.
The optional hand part included with Hijikata is the 'sword hand' that was also included with Reisner. The Volks News mistakenly states that Hijikata comes with SD17B-H-03, the pistol hand that Williams came with, however this info was confirmed by Volks as being incorrect.

Their way of life was fleeting, vanishing like scattered petals... and yet so very worthy of being remembered...

"Sôji, is everything ready?"
"Hijikata-san, you're going to get scolded by Master Kondo again..."
