Hina enrolled in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th as the Ultimate Swimming Pro (超高校級の「スイマー」chō kōkō kyū no “suimā.”) She was a young sportswoman who was active in five different sports clubs. Due to her ability, Hina was chosen as a representative at the Olympics.
When Sakura Ogami committed suicide in Chapter 4, she attempted to make everyone vote for her as the culprit after being tricked into thinking that Sakura killed herself out of despair.
Hina survives the final trial and escapes Hope's Peak Academy with the other survivors.
Hina has tanned skin, blue eyes, and a rather curvaceous body that is usually the subject of Toko Fukawa/Genocide Jack's harassment. She wears her brown hair in a ponytail, which becomes spikier when she gets upset and droops when she's sad.
During the daily life, Hina wears athletic shorts and a red track suit jacket over a white shirt. In one of her official artworks, she wears a blue bathing suit with a white box logo on the front with some Japanese characters that spell her last name and a single white stripe on the right side of her bust.
As a member of the Future Foundation, Hina wears a modified version of the standard female business suit, featuring a different tie and shorts instead of a skirt. Under her suit jacket and dress shirt, she wears a white tank top similar to the one she wore back in Hope's Peak Academy. Her ponytail is set further down on her head and seems slightly longer than before. In Danganronpa 3, she has grown taller.
Hina is a friendly girl to the other classmates during the Killing School Life, being the first person to offer to introduce themselves to Makoto Naegi. She quickly forms a good friendship with Sakura, and tries to get Toko and Chihiro Fujisaki involved in their activities, even if they don't want to be involved.
She can be quite air-headed, such as trying to write down Makoto's name on her hand despite lacking a pen, and easily falling for Celestia Ludenberg's trap, tricking her into believing Yasuhiro Hagakure killed Kiyotaka Ishimaru and Hifumi Yamada. Although not unintelligent by any means, she has a tendency to jump to conclusions and take things at face value, which leaves her vulnerable to misdirection in Class Trials.
Hina is quite emotional, especially regarding the issue of death; She cried over the death of Hifumi while holding his head in her chest, and had difficulty accepting Kyoko Kirigiri's supposed death in Danganronpa 3. She can be quite temperamental at times, such as being disgusted when Celeste revealed her motive for killing Taka and Hifumi. In Chapter 4, she tried to have everyone killed, including herself, after the death of Sakura, after being tricked by the Mastermind, into believing she killed herself in a fit of despair; due to the note she read, she believed everyone, including herself, to be responsible for the Ultimate Martial Artist's death.
Despite being an athlete, she enjoys sweet foods, such as obsessing over donuts and monopolizing the sweet jar in Chapter 4. She is often hungry and at one time threatened to hit Makoto when hungry in one of her Free Time events. However, she is worried about her weight and about getting fat.
She often quotes famous sports people and their inspirational quotes before Free Time Events. The Free Time sequence reveals Hina's insecurity about not being feminine enough due to her being an athlete. She is also secretly a fan of Jason Statham.
Skills and Abilities
Ultimate Swimming Pro
Hina sees herself as to having to keep moving in order to survive, showing her impatience with inactivity, to the extent of joining six sports teams, with her primary and favorite sport being swimming. She is quite competitive, preferring competition to winning in sports, and is aiming for the Gold Medal in the Olympics. Her younger brother Yuta, a very powerful athlete himself, admits that Hina is a better swimmer than him.
While she is not as strong as more experienced fighters, Hina is perfectly capable of holding her own in a fight. This was shown when she and Juzo Sakakura engaged in a fight with weapons; she managed to dodge most of his attacks, and even pin his weapon to the ground.
Due to her athletic background, Hina is much stronger than her petite frame suggests. She has been shown to carry Makoto around on her back with little to no loss of speed, and she easily moved a large piece of furniture that Makoto and Ryota Mitarai couldn't even budge when working together.
Prior to the Tragedy
Ever since elementary school, Hina has broken records for every swimming contest she had entered. She was very close with her younger brother, Yuta.
While attending Asunaro High School, Hina was scouted by Hope's Peak Academy as part of the 78th Class.
Hina is seen briefly in the episode, picking out some tools with Kyoko as the rest of the students of Class 78th continue barricading the old school building.
During the Tragedy
During the Tragedy, Jin Kirigiri, the Headmaster of the Academy, planned to seal the school building and let the students live forever inside the Academy in order to protect them from the destruction outside. His plan was agreed upon by the class, and they sealed the building together and lived peacefully inside it for a year without knowing that the Ultimate Despair members were already in their midst.
The true Ultimate Despair took away the 78th Class' school memories so they could participate in the school life of mutual killing.
When they reunited at the school entrance, none of them recognized each other and they reintroduced themselves. Hina quickly adapted to the others and started to befriend Sakura.
Prologue - Welcome to Despair'
When Makoto goes to meet Hina, she immediately forgets his name. After Makoto states it, she writes it three times on her hand but asks what characters are used to spell Makoto's last name. She then states she forgot how "Naegi" is spelt and promises to look it up later.
Chapter 1 - To Survive
Hina is scared after she watched the DVD that Monokuma gives to the students, so she asks Sakura to stay at her room at one night. Hina and Sakura played the key role of witness in the first trial, as they had seen Sayaka Maizono, the victim of the murder case, enter the kitchen while they were hanging out in the cafeteria. They helped Makoto deduce that Sayaka herself was the one who took the knife from the kitchen, not her killer.
Chapter 2 - Boy's Life of Despair
After Monokuma opened the shelters to the third floor, Hina seemed pretty excited when she found out about the swimming pool. However, nobody wanted to accompany her to go swimming.
Chapter 3 - A Next Generation Legend!
On the night after the conclusion of the second trial, a depressed Hina wandered out of her room in search of donuts in the Cafeteria. However, she heard weird sounds coming from the changing room near the bath. When she approached one of the lockers in the room, she saw someone who looked similar to the recently deceased Chihiro. In fear, she screamed and returned to her room.
The next morning, Hina was temporarily absent from the usual meeting under the excuse of not feeling well. When she went to the Cafeteria to eat donuts, the others just happened to return from their investigation. Concerned, they asked why she was absent during the morning meeting. To their surprise, Hina said that she had seen Chihiro's 'spirit' wandering in the changing room. When they went to the aforementioned place to confirm Hina's claim, they discovered that the ghost whom Hina saw was Alter Ego, the Artificial Intelligence that was made by Chihiro.
After searching for some time, Hina and the others finally found Taka and Hifumi's bodies in the art room. Devastated by the sudden death of her two friends, Hina put Hifumi's head on her lap and cried for him. Surprisingly, Hifumi regained his consciousness with enough time to speak the last name (Yasuhiro) of the culprit. However, he died due to his severe wounds.
Chapter 4 - All●Star●Apologies
Following the conclusion of the third trial, Monokuma revealed Sakura's identity as the mole in their group. Shocked by the sudden turn of events, Hina immediately came to Sakura's side to protect her from Byakuya Togami, Toko, and Yasuhiro's accusation. However, this would only served to widen the gap between them.
As time went by, Hina gradually became more emotional, even getting into a fight with Byakuya and Toko. When Sakura found out about this, she decided to make a plan to meet up with Byakuya, Toko, and Hiro in the game room to clear things up. Hina was against the plan, but Sakura insisted on it. Sakura also sent a letter to Hina, which explained that she would commit suicide in order to cease the dispute between the students. Unfortunately for Sakura, Monokuma swapped the letter with a fake, which Hina would find and read later.
Finding herself worried about Sakura's well-being, Hina immediately went to the game room, only to find that Sakura was badly wounded on her head due to Hiro's and Toko's assault. Even though she was not in a condition to speak, Sakura shrugged off Hina's worry and requested Hina to get the protein from the laboratory to treat her wound. Unknown to Hina, Sakura was planning to commit suicide that time.
Upon looking at the trace of spilled poison on the laboratory floor, Hina finally realized what Sakura was attempting to do and immediately returned to the game room to check up on Sakura's condition. However, the door could not be opened because a chair prevented the door handle from moving. From the outside, Hina could see Sakura sitting on the chair, lifeless.
After Kyoko and Makoto confirmed Sakura's death, Hina was at loss. On the inside, she blamed the others, since the letter she had found claimed that they were the ones who drove Sakura to suicide. Due to that, Hina immediately resolved to deliberately misdirect the investigation in order to get all of them executed from identifying the wrong person as the culprit.
In the trial, Hina became very quick to blame someone else as Sakura's murderer. When the truth about Sakura's suicide finally came out, she insisted that she was the one who killed Sakura. However, Makoto managed to solve the mysteries surrounding Sakura’s death and foiled Hina's plan.
When the trial was over, Monokuma revealed that he had switched the suicide letter with the fake one. He then went on to read the contents of the letter. Most of the students, especially Hina, were surprised to find out that Sakura sacrificed herself for their sake. Afterwards, they decided to reconcile and unite their strength in order to take down the Mastermind.
Chapter 5 - 100 Mile Dash; Pain of a Junk Food Junkie
Chapter 6 - Ultimate Pain, Ultimate Suffering, Ultimate Despair, Ultimate Execution, Ultimate Death
As the true perpetrator was revealed to be Junko Enoshima, Hina was one of the students who was shocked that the 'Junko Enoshima' they met was actually Junko's twin sister, Mukuro Ikusaba, and remained stunned over the state of the world. In particular, Hina was crippled by the knowledge that her fellow students were longtime friends before having their memories removed; coupled with the knowledge that they were essentially killing each other over nothing, she was teetering on the verge of despair.
Hina was motivated by Makoto's words that hope is still alive, causing her to recall Sakura's quote as if she was still alive: “Strength is only obtained through unshaken bravery”. Realizing that Sakura would want her to move on in memory of the fallen, she decided to believe in Makoto.
Along with the rest of her friends, Hina witnessed Makoto - the newly-minted "Ultimate Hope" - managing to defeat Junko, leading to her executing herself in a special punishment. With Junko dead, the School Killing Life was finally over, and the survivors found an escape switch that would allow them to leave the academy.
Epilogue - Goodbye Despair Academy
Considering their torments are finally over, Hina would begin to wonder if a doughnut shop would appear when she returned to the real world before she bade farewell to her fellow friends. Hence, Hina was among the six survivors to escape the school.
Joining the Future Foundation
Hina and the others survived together in the apocalyptic world until they were found by the Future Foundation. They decided to join Future Foundation to fight against despair and Future Foundation helped them to recover their school memories. Hina became a member of the 13th Branch.
Chapter 3 - Bessatsu Shounen Zetsubou Magazine
Hina was seen in the explanation of the Tragedy, along with the survivors of the Killing School Life as one of the people integral in stopping the Tragedy's mastermind, Junko Enoshima.
Hina appears in the anime sequel, Danganronpa 3 - Side: Future, along with Makoto, Kyoko and Hiro.
Hina is allowed to attend Makoto's trial as a proxy for the 13th Branch Leader, and thus gets herself roped into the "Final Killing Game" with the other Branche Leaders.
Her NG Code is "Not to be hit with a punch or kick."
Hina, along with Kyoko and Hiro greeted Makoto as he arrived at the off-shore facility. After the group arrived at the boardroom, Hina protested Kyosuke Munakata who immediately ordered Juzo Sakakura to handcuff Makoto without any discussion first. She attempts to defend Makoto from the physical abuse but is silenced when a kunai is thrown in her direction by Sonosuke Izayoi. Ruruka threatens her, saying that next time she would order him not to miss.
In the meeting's recess, Hina and Kyoko go to the bathroom just down the hall from the meeting place. She was upset that she and Kyoko weren't permitted to visit Makoto, and questions why. Kyoko explained that it was because that was how much they suspected the two of them, excluding Hina from the problem. Hina protested, saying that just because she was in a different Division doesn't mean that she wasn't going to continue to stick with Kyoko and Makoto.
During the attack on the facility, the building began quaking and Hina grabbed the bathroom stall handle to try and balance herself. She opens the door and is horrified to discover the bodies of three dead security guards crammed inside. Hina rushes into the boardroom to tell the other leaders about the dead bodies, and is overcome by sleeping gas soon after.
After Monokuma told them the rules of the new killing game, Hina jumped to Makoto's defense countless of times when the others accused him of being the traitor. Shortly after Daisaku Bandai's demise: Kyoko created a diversion and Hina, Great Gozu and Miaya Gekkogahara helped Makoto escape harm from Juzo and Kyosuke.
As Hina ran in front of Makoto, repeatedly telling him to hurry up, he reveals to her that his NG code states that he cannot run in the hallway. Seeing no other option, Hina carries him on her back and runs to safety. When they hit a dead end and Great Gozu comes smashing through the wall thanks to Kyosuke, Hina throws a broken extinguisher at Kyosuke so Great Gozu can cut off his defense giving time for Great Gozu to body slam into the ground for him, Makoto, Hina and Miaya to escape the ruthless Kyosuke.
As Great Gozu barricades the door so no one can get in, Hina and Makoto share a heart warming moment just as they're about to fall asleep, as they do Hina thanks Makoto for being there for her.
As Makoto wakes up, he finds blood on his hands, causing him to look over to see Hina, apparently dead with a knife lodged in her chest.
Makoto and Miaya (via Usami) panic over seeing Hina's "dead" body, but as the sleeping gas wore off, Hina woke up with a yawn, surprised to see herself covered in "blood". As it turned out the knife was a toy and the blood was tomato sauce. As Hina looked up, she saw Great Gozu's body, looking very shocked.
After Great Gozu's body is taken down, Hina commented on the fact that the attacker somehow got into the room, and is saddened that Great Gozu was killed. She took off her jacket and covers Great Gozu's body with it as a sign of respect. Hina is determined that the group will survive and find the killer and stated that they will find the killer by using Makoto.
When Makoto said that he would like to talk to everyone, Miaya suggested him to use the building's intercom system. Hina questioned what the building is and Miaya explained that this was going to be an overseas version of Hope's Peak Academy, but when the Tragedy struck Kyosuke made it his base.
After finding the intercom system, Hina walked with Makoto and Miaya when Makoto asks if Miaya can't turn right. After Makoto showed Miaya his NG Code, Hina showed the group hers, apologized that she was sorry for not protecting him during the vote. After Makoto forgives her and tells her not to do anything risky. Hina agreed with Miaya calling them "Soul Mates".
When Makoto is about to speak, Hina silenced him saying she heard someone. She told Makoto she will draw them away, telling him to head to the Monitoring room. Hina quickly ran off, with Miaya following behind her, drawing Seiko Kimura, who was wandering the hallways to follow them. After Seiko followed the two of them, Hina and Miaya hide behind some rubble and listen to Makoto's speech.
Hina and Miaya escaped from their hiding place after they heared an explosion. On the way, they met with Kazuo Tengan's group and Hina gladly reunited with Kyoko. She also thanked Ryota Mitarai for saving her life before from being hit by Juzo. Proceeding with a new plan, Hina and Miaya escorted Kazuo to negotiate with Kyosuke.
Arriving at the scene, Kazuo tried to distract Kyosuke while Hina came down to untie Makoto and brought him back and escaped from Kyosuke to hide in a safe place. Hina believed that the three of them had ran far enough from Kyosuke and decided to take a breath. Miaya noticed that someone have been following them and offered to stop them. Hina didn't want her to go alone but eventually agreed to stay by Makoto's side, promising her to eat doughnuts together after everything came into the end.
After Juzo knocked down Miaya, Hina and Makoto encounter him. Makoto insists for her to escape, but not taking Makoto's advice, she instead grabs a metal pipe to fight Juzo. She mocks the former Ultimate Boxer for using a weapon to fight her instead of his bare fists.
Hina was in the middle of her fight with Juzo when Seiko and the reactivated Miaya came and interrupted it. Seeing that as a chance to escape, Hina brought Makoto on her back and fled from the scene.
Hina was worried about Makoto who was having nightmare after the third time limit hit. Hina and Makoto using Miaya's computer search for the third victim and found that Chairman Kazuo died at Kyosuke's hands. Hina comforted Makoto to share his burden with her when they discovered Kazuo's dying letter. She stated that if it's not for her NG Code, she could find a way to put an end to the "game."
It was revealed by Monaca Towa, the controller of Miaya that she was the one who faked Hina's death only to see Makoto's reaction to her fake death.
Hina overhears Makoto's last segment of conversation with Komaru Naegi on the Miaya Monitoring screen, in which they took about Monaca's recent explanation that someone from 'Big-Sis Junko's Killing Game' will die because of Makoto.
After the connection is cut short, Hina expressed that Makoto is a good brother to Komaru, which reminded her of her deceased brother. As Miaya entered auto-remote activity mode, Hina lead him out a whole in the wall to safety, reminding him that he can run as it's not a specific hallway. But upon their escape, they run into Kyosuke who seeks to eradicate both of them, considering them despair. Miaya immediately comes to their aid, battling Kyosuke and keeping him occupied as Hina questions Makoto on what they should do to which he answers that they should escape while they can. Hina boosts Makoto up onto her shoulders, running in the opposite direction to Kyosuke and Makoto tells Hina that they need to find Kyoko before Byakuya came to rescue them.
They eventually find Kyoko who is explaining to Ryota about how Makoto is her savior, Hina and Makoto show up behind her and Hina giggles at the awkward situation. Hina, Makoto, Kyoko and Ryota eat and drink in an unknown room, before Kyoko gives her comforting words to Makoto showing her support, Hina smiles at this. Eventually they decide to barricade the doors to the room before the time limit is up, Makoto and Ryota both struggle to push a large object in the way of the door so Hina helps them and has no trouble. After they fall unconscious from sleeping gas they wake up to find Kyoko dead, Hina breaks down in tears and becomes even more shocked at Munakata's message over the intercom explaining that Kyoko's NG code proves how useless Makoto's platitudes are.
Hina continued to cry over Kyoko's death. Seeing that, Makoto asked Ryota to stay with Hina explaining that he will go and speak with Kyosuke. Ryota protested as to why Makoto is recovering from the trauma so quickly, after only just finding out about Kyoko's death. Hina stopped crying as Makoto explained that Kyoko entrusted her hope to him and since this is the case he has to stop Kyosuke. Hina rested her hand on Makoto's shoulder, stating that she 'believes in him' to which Makoto replies that he'll 'be back soon'.
Hina leans against the doorway before heading back to where Kyoko is lying, as she looked over her once more she noticed the notebook Kyoko has left for them, hiding underneath her body.
Hina and Ryota are able to find Makoto and Kyosuke in another room and Hina rushed over to Makoto asking if he is alright, before staring at Kyosuke angrily, she proclaimed that the killing stops now, expressing that she knows who the attacker is, Hina held up Kyoko's notebook.
A flashback is shown, revealing the point in time when the Future Foundation are observing the end to the Killing School Life. The vault door of Hope's Peak Academy is opened, Hina and the remainder of the 78th class survey the despair laying around them, she has an expression of shock.
Back to present time, Makoto requested Kyosuke listen to Hina, to which he agreed. She began to show Makoto the pages of Kyoko's notebook.
After discovering the participants commit suicide when they look at the monitor, Makoto requested Kyosuke tie him up facing one. Hina became worried for Makoto after his request is followed out, she is afraid he may die and that he is doing something rash because of what happened to Kyoko. Makoto explaining to her that he won't die because Kyoko didn't give up on hope so he can't either and that he promised Komaru he'd come and get her after this was all over, Hina became slightly reassured by this.
Hina waited for the time limit in a nearby room free of monitors with Ryota and Kyosuke. Clasping her hands, the timer goes off with Hina still thinking of Makoto before falling unconscious from the sleeping gas.
After everyone is awake, Makoto proceeds to the nearby room accommodating Hina, Kyosuke, and Ryota. He confirmed with Hina and the rest of the participants that the monitors broadcast a video of despair; shattering the monitor, Hina discovered a knife hidden inside. She is surprised to hear from Kyosuke that other than himself, Kazuo has authority to install equipment through the building, leading her to believe that Kazuo may be the mastermind behind the Final Killing Game.
Juzo made his way to the power room, turning all switches off to free Hina and the rest of the surviving participants from the game and cut the power to the monitors, Hina acknowledged this. When Ryota revealed that Junko was using his anime technique, Hina shocked by this wants him to explain further but is interrupted when Ryota receives a message from the deceased Tengan on his mobile phone.
Hina and Makoto noticed Ryota has received a video message from the deceased Kazuo. Upon watching, they discovered Kazuo may have been a Remnant of Despair as he admitted to setting up the Final Killing Game. Ryota collapsed to the floor, in anguish over being betrayed but Hina tried to be optimistic, saying the wristbands are removed so they are free of the game, now they can look to the future. Ryota expressed that he couldn't run away, not as he did back when Junko used him for his techniques to create the Despair Video. This time, he had to fight by showing everyone the opposite video of Despair Video, the Hope Video. As he began to walk away, Hina rushed in front of him, convincing him to reconsider his choices, as Makoto and her felt that a hope video would only force people to believe in hope rather than changing their attitude by themselves.
Ryota reached for his phone and showed Hina his Hope Video, brainwashing her to follow his command, he told her to restrain Makoto and willingly ordered his command, and to Makoto's anger, Ryota is able to get away. The Future Foundation's rescue squad have also been put into a brainwashed state under Ryota's control and immediately find Hina and Makoto. They are set ready to fire at them both, Makoto telling Hina to run although she continues to restrain him. Kyosuke then comes to their rescue, knocking the soldiers to the ground.
Hina is able to break free of her brainwashed state upon Kyosuke's return and they all then hatched a plan to stop Ryota before it is too late. Kyosuke draws away the Rescue squads attention as Hina and Makoto continuing to run the halls in search of Ryota. However, Hina was shot in the leg, forcing both of Hina and Makoto to take shelter in a nearby room where they cannot be seen.
After Makoto bandaged up Hina's leg, she explained to Makoto that he needed to stop Ryota and that she will be fine, although she is still grimacing in pain. Makoto reluctantly leaves her and heads off to stop Ryota, saying he will return for her. Before too long, Makoto is cornered by the Rescue squad and Hina is discovered by them, unconscious.
Hiro and Byakuya are able to find Hina and come to her aid. Hiro began tying fresh bandages around Hina's leg before expressing that Togami got buried in rubble laughingly, to Hina's shock although Byakuya explained to her that they were saved by the Class 77-B. She then asked after Makoto, Byakuya reassuring her that he is being escorted by half of his operatives.
Makoto later met up with Hina, Hiro and Byakuya underneath a tent, they all greet him warmly, relieved he is unharmed. Noticing a video on Byakuya's laptop, Hina and the rest of the group surrounded the screen, Byakuya explained that the Class 77-B broadcasted a message of 'despair', proclaiming they set up the Final Killing Game in order for the Future Foundation to still look favorable.
The Class 77-B set off for Jabberwock island by boat, Hina and Hiro both wave them off warmly.
Several months after the Final Killing Game was over, Makoto became the principal of a newly built Hope's Peak Academy and is working alongside Kyoko. Hina and Toko both helped move boxes of materials, Komaru offering them each a drink, to which they offer their thanks.
Water Illusion Show - Hina is put in a water tank. From above, Monokuma, dressed as a magician, appears and waves his staff. A curtain falls, raising again with a drum roll. Many sharks can be seen in the tank, surrounding Hina. Once again, Monokuma waves his staff and the curtain falls. As the drum rolls and the curtain rises, Hina isn't in the tank anymore, because she had been eaten by the sharks. This execution is shown in the Official Fanbook.
Yuta is Hina's little brother, and the person closest to her. This is confirmed when Yuta become Hina's Captive when Monkuma attempts to motivate her to kill. The two are both exceptional swimmers, although Yuta claims Hina was always better. Hina is aware that her brother was killed in Towa City, and shows great sadness over his death. Makoto and Komaru's relationship reminded her of Yuta, and she seemed somewhat upset as the two talked.
Hina and Sakura became very close friends due to their passion for sports. They also like drinking protein drinks. Hina was very upset when Byakuya badmouthed Sakura, causing her to slap him. Her friend's death had a huge impact on her, accusing anyone who spoke ill of her and planning to get herself and the others killed after reading the falsified suicide note.
Although not sharing any kind of close relationship with Hina when they first met, Makoto becomes close friends with her during their time together at Hope's Peak. During one of her Free Time events, Hina requests that Makoto act as her fake boyfriend so she can practice when she gets a real one. Their closeness is also shown when Hina is shown feeling guilty over having executed Makoto and she seems happy when he forgives her. As members of the Future Foundation, Makoto makes sure Hina doesn't overdo things while Hina frequently tells him that everything is okay. When Makoto is arrested for betraying the Future Foundation, Hina (along with Kyoko) help defend him, and she also helps him escape from Kyosuke when the latter tries to kill him. Makoto gives Hina hope after she despairs at the fact that they must start a new round of killing.
Towards the end of their time in the Final Killing Game, their friendship has gotten stronger and Hina seems to care deeply for Makoto, being the only one of the survivors from the previous game who managed to survive the game with her.
Hina becomes close friends to Kyoko after joining the Future Foundation with her and the other survivors. Hina helps Kyoko protect Makoto, despite her protests and warning that she may be treated as a co-conspirator by doing so. Hina also adresses Kyoko as Kyoko-chan, showing how strong their friendship has gotten. They also hug each other when they find out the other is alright during the Final Killing Game, and Hina sheds tears and wails loudly over Kyoko's supposed death.
Hina disliked Byakuya at the very start of Killing School Life because of his claims that he will get all the students killed for his survival. Their relationship only worsened when Sakura was revealed to be Monokuma's mole and Byakuya started insulting her. Hina immediately stepped up to defend her best friend, and Hina even slapped Byakuya and threatened to kill him in fury. Byakuya thought of Hina as an annoyance and the two had many arguments until they escaped the school together.
As members of the Future Foundation, the two become friends instead and put their life of Killing School Life behind them.
Hina was disliked by both Toko and Jack. Despite this Hina was the only one who actually tried to talk with Toko. However, this changed when Toko began to badmouth Sakura, and Hina started to develop feelings of hatred for Toko.
In Danganronpa Another Episode, she was envied by Toko because she became a formal member of the Future Foundation. However, the two later managed to put their past behind them and appear to become friends.
A fellow survivor of the Killing School Life and member of the Future Foundation. Asahina is weirded out the most by Hiro's eccentric behavior out of all her classmates.
Future Foundation Members
Miaya and Hina weren't on good terms when Hina first arrived, the two barely interacting. After Hina escaped with Makoto, Miaya helped the two escape, but when Hina tried to pat Miaya on the head, she flinched away. However, Hina stated that she was worried about Miaya before she flinched away.
After being barricaded in the room by Great Gozu, Miaya and Hina grow closer as Miaya (through Usami) freaks out over Hina's faked death. When Makoto, Hina and Miaya leave the room, Hina agreed with Miaya when she called them "Soul Mates" and both her and Miaya run ahead so Makoto could easily reach the Monitoring Room. The two later hide together from Seiko.
However, Miaya revealed as a mere puppet controlled by Monaca.
Hope's Peak Academy Staff
Hina likes Makoto's younger sister, referring to her as Komaru-chan. They appear to have become friends, although it's unknown whether Hina was informed of Komaru's connection to her little brother.
