Hirotada Ototake (乙武 洋匡 Ototake Hirotada?) (born April 6, 1976) is a Japanese sports writer from Tokyo, Japan.

Born without arms and legs due to a genetic disorder called tetra-amelia syndrome, Ototake is most notable for his 1998 memoir No One's Perfect (五体不満足 Gotai fumanzoku?) (ISBN 4770027648). Within a year of publication, the book became the third-best-selling book in Japan since World War II.[1] It has since been translated into English.

After publishing his autobiography, Ototake became a successful sports journalist. In 2007, he took a job as a primary school (first through sixth grades) teacher at Suginami Dai-Yon Elementary School in Tokyo.[2]
