THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
A somewhat unkempt and indoorsy otaku type who likes to draw manga; In fact, she likes manga to the extent that she mentions it for almost every hypothetical situation. She can give off the impression that she is physically lazy due to her appearance and the state of her home. Despite this, Hina is actually hard-working when it comes to her manga. Hina is initially very doubtful that she can become a cute idol which later took a toll on her self esteem; she believed that nobody else "sees her as one" based on the reactions that were exhibited when she was still in her tracksuit. However, with further encouragement from the Producer, unexpected kindness from the crowd, and observing herself in 'idol uniform' she swiftly gained confidence and realised her potential. She seems to be the kind of person who hates deadlines, often frantically adjusting her manga schedule at the last second. This indicates her carefree nature.
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 presents 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.

|Hina: Hi. Araki Hina here. I'm going to answer some DereMails. I'll be taking this session slowly so I hope to enjoy this too.|
|Question: Was there a time when you thought to yourself “This manga I'm drawing seems boring!?!”? If so, what do you do in times like that?|
|Hina: ”This went well! I might be a genius!” -> “Now that I take a good look at it, it isn't that good” and goes back again. And I want to make it better. #DereMail|
|Hina: When that happens, first I pat myself on the back for completing. And that's just fine, right?|
|Hina: And so I give praise to myself! “You were great drawing this manga! Well done!”|
|Question: When at a bookstore... if I were to stay there for long, I end up buying some. Which one do you prefer, Araki-san, online or actual?|
|Hina: I know... I really know how you feel. Trying to assess which book to get could easily go for 30 minutes, right? #DereMail|
|Hina: Both of them have their merits. You can definitely stumble upon new books at an actual bookstore. And the smell of the paper and ink are just great.|
|Hina: However, when you're looking for something more specific or more specialized, it's best to go online. Well, each of them has their uses.|
|Question: How many days before the deadline do you go “Oh no, it's almost time, this is bad”?|
|Hina: F-Fufufufu... #DereMail|
|Hina: That time right after the normal; deadline and you're in the extension is when the real battle starts, right?|
|Question: How's the work doing?|
|Hina: Ugh, my head... #DereMail|
|Hina: I-I guess that will be it for today?|
|Hina: It'd make me happy if you send in questions. With that said, thanks.|
