Happy Birthday Hinagiku Katsura!

In honor of Hinagiku’s birthday I thought I would write about why I love her so much. If you’ve listened to the podcast or follow me on twitter you know that I’m totally in love Hinagiku Katsura. If you don’t know Hinagiku is from the anime and manga Hayate no Gotoku or as it’s called in English Hayate the Combat Butler. Trying to think about why I love Hinagiku is hard to explain. I never really finished the first season of the Hayate no Gotoku anime, and just recently started reading the manga.

Most of my experience with Hinagiku has been based on the second season of the anime. So I have to ask myself the question “Benu, why do you like Hinagiku so much?”. I’m not really sure how to answer the question myself. I plan to write a more in depth look at the subject another time analyzing the second season and the specific things that brought me to love her. Hinagiku is an interesting character in that when I saw the first season of Hayate I didn’t really notice her from the start although I do remember liking her a bit.

Then came along the second season of Hayate which I didn’t really plan to watch. I just watched a couple episodes just because. I don’t know really what happened but around episode 4 something changed. Instead of the silly parody anime the last season was, the characters in the show started to become real characters and not characters purely just to be comical, which is what the first season felt like. So to get to the point and stop rambling I think I like Hinagiku as much as I do because she very much reminds me of myself or rather qualities of character that I aspire to have and improve on.

Hina always shows herself to be very responsible and honest and always has the courage to do the right thing and thinks of others before herself. She shows herself to be a strong, confident, and mature person yet at times deep down inside she is struggling with the same feelings and emotions everyone else feels yet she always tries to show herself as a strong woman no matter what. Her true feelings are deep down inside but she is too embarrassed to express her true self and feelings. I don’t think this even really explains everything about my love for Hina but I think it may give you a better understanding about why I like her.

If you like Hinagiku, what is it about her that makes you like her? For those that don’t like Hinagiku, what is it about your favorite character from Hayate that makes you like them? If you don’t have a favorite Hayate character, what is it about your favorite anime character that makes you like them?

Hinagiku Nendoroid Get!

Nendoroid Hinagiku

I just got my Hinagiku Nendoroid in yesterday and she is so cute, adorable, and moe! I am working on a video review of her that will be up on the site soon but I’m so excited about her I had to post some pics here on the site! This is one of the best Hinagiku figures to come out and I’m so happy I was able to get this one especially because I’m such and huge fan of Hinagiku. I got mine from AmiAmi and they still have her in stock! So if you want her I recommend that you pick her up while you still can.
