Hinamatsuri Cast And Character
Hina – Voiced by Takako Tanaka
The titular heroine who has superhuman abilities, which include telekinesis and explosion. She may be from another world or timeline, and it is implied she was the subject of experiments or used as a weapon. She usually lazes around at Nitta’s apartment and sleeps in school. She is very particular about food despite demonstrably lacking a refined palate, and her favorite food is salmon roe.
Yoshifumi Nitta Voiced by Yoshiki Nakajima
The main protagonist who takes Hina into his home and somewhat resents her intrusion into his bachelor lifestyle. He is a yakuza of the Ashikawa-gumi, where he quickly rises through the ranks thanks to Hina’s abilities and his own prowess at administration. He acquired cooking and housekeeping skills to take care of his mother and younger sister after his father died, and his hobby is collecting rare porcelain vases and urns (which Hina often destroys). His family and fellow yakuza members are convinced that Hina is his daughter from a past relationship.
