"Me as an idol~? No way, someone like me is just fine not living in that brilliant world, so it's fine... I kinda hate glitzy things too, so it's fine... Really..."
A somewhat unkempt and indoorsy otaku type who likes to draw manga, Hina is initially very doubtful that she can become a cute idol. She seems to be the kind of person who hates deadlines, often frantically adjusting her manga schedule at the last second.
In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Hina is first seen preparing for a live event. She planned on taking off her glasses and putting on contacts, a symbol of leaving her otaku self behind, but is forced into wearing another set Haruna Kamijo made specifically for the event. She is a kind person, as she can be seen with other idols leaving present for Yukimi Sajo on Christmas Eve. Due to their laid-back natures, she gets along with Anzu Futaba. Hina seems to enjoy swimming and playing in the water.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- Hina's surname may be a reference to the famous manga-ka Hirohiko Araki, who produced the famous and long running Jojo's Bizarre Adventure series. Fans also like to call her "Araki-sensei", just like he is called by his fans.
- She ends her sentences with "~ッス" or "~ssu" in Japanese, which is considered somewhat of a masculine verbal tic.
- In Starlight Stage, her image stat specialty is either Dance or Visual, depending on the card.
- She is shown to wear a track jacket on her unidolized basic card and over her shoulders in other unidolized cards. This is due to tracksuits being commonly associated with neets (shut-ins) such as Hina herself in Japanese media.
