Hikawa Hina is a first-year student at Keiho Women's University, the former student council president of Haneoka Girls' High School, as well as the guitarist of Pastel*Palettes. She is the younger, more bright-eyed twin of Sayo.

She has a habit of describing things with unusual ideophones, such as "run" (るん, translated as "boppin'♪") or "pipi" (ピピッ).

Hina started playing the guitar after seeing Sayo do it, and then became a member of Pastel*Palettes after she passed an audition. At first Hina claimed to be in the band only to kill time, but after spending time with the other members (and thanks to Aya's efforts) she got more invested in it.

Appearance[]

Hina has sharp green eyes and light, wavy teal hair. Her bangs are brushed towards the right, and her hair is shoulder-length. Sections of her hair are worn on either side in a braid held by tiny yellow bows.

Her casual attire is fairly tomboyish, featuring pants or shorts and a gingham jacket worn on, or around her waist.

Personality[]

A natural genius with an impeccable memory, Hina can acquire and master new skills very quickly, often even with just one attempt. However, as a result, she tends to get bored of things quickly and is always looking out for new and interesting things to do. She is very cheerful and carefree, but her relaxed mindset also makes her unable to understand other people's emotions, and as such, she sometimes inadvertently insults them without noticing. She is intrigued by people who are different from her, and things she doesn't understand. Hina is also very candid, always being honest and sure of both herself and her actions. She also tends to be a troublemaker sometimes, and also likes teasing her friends, especially Aya, and has even admitted that she finds her crying interesting.

Unlike Sayo, who initially disliked being a twin, Hina seems to embrace it. She is very supportive of her sister and loves her regardless of how she treats her, though they often get into arguments due to their conflicting personalities. Hina would often pick up Sayo's hobbies in the hopes of spending time with her, but this would always backfire, as Sayo felt like Hina was just copying her and doing things better than her, thus feeding into her inferiority complex. However, as the story goes on, the two start getting along again and both Hina and Sayo start understanding each other more, and Sayo treats her sister more kindly once again.
