「いきなりだけど西軍東軍どっち派? アタシはもちろん西軍派、慶次カッコイイよね! あ、慶次ってのはマイフェイバリット武将の前田慶次様ね! ……エ? アイドル? なにそれ時代劇出れる? マジで? やるやる!」
Hitomi is an idol from Nagoya with tremendous interest in her country's feudal history. She can cite encyclopedic knowledge of figures like Hattori Hanzou, Miyamoto Musashi and Yagyu Jubei. Hitomi travels around Japan with tour guides that explain what major battles or significant historic events took place in the location. Some of her idol costumes also contain some elements of samurai wear.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Hitomi shows her knowledge base on the feudal lords of Japan. She often compares her fellow idols to famous historical figures and references various battles. She will occasionally start to imagine that she is one of those figures, and will act as them during entire conversations. Admittedly, she won’t eat fish from the head like a general, as she finds that to be disgusting. Hitomi appears to be a very skilled actress and tour guide. She also is friends with Honami Nishikawa and Ayame Hamaguchi. She doesn’t have much interest in Asai Nagamasa.
