Hinata Okano is a student in class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Junior High School, taught by Korosensei.

Appearance

Hinata has short brown hair and brown eyes (light purple/pink in the anime). Her hair is the shortest among all of the girls in Class 3-E.

Personality

In her initial appearances, Okano was often shown to be serious with a relatively neutral expression. As the series goes on, she's later shown to also be playful in addition to being serious. She is also described as someone who acts before she thinks. Megu said that Okano is an honest person, but gets really stubborn when she's angry.

Etymology

Okano (岡野) Oka () means "hill" or "rising ground" and No () means "field." "Okano" is also the surname of one of the 47 ronin of feudal Japan.

Hinata (ひなた) is a unisex name meaning "sunflower" or "facing the sun."

History

Okano has two brothers, both younger and older, meaning sports and muscle are what is talked about at home, potentially the reason she enjoys sports and gymnastics so much. Okano dropped to Class E from neglecting her studies due to club activities, causing her grades to drop rapidly.

Plot

Like her classmates, Okano was introduced in Chapter 1 however, unlike many of her classmates, Okano had yet to be properly introduced. Instead she has steadily been gaining more and more appearances as the series goes on with her first being in Chapter 24 when she was shown handing a towel to Maehara after he had been kicked to the ground by Tomoya Seo. This introduced her as one of the more serious characters of Class E. Her more playful side was highlighted in Chapter 86 when she was shown smiling when telling one of Shiro's men that she was still frustrated from the game of Cops and Robbers back in Chapter 81 and Chapter 82 and proceeded to take him out.

Okano finally receives the spotlight alongside Maehara in Chapter 158. The day before Valentines' Day, Okano accompanied Maehara after school. She had planned to give her chocolate early to avoid any embarrassment on the actual day but kept on hesitating until Maehara suddenly asked her to do karaoke with him. Okano happily accepted but was unaware that Maehara detected Korosensei spying on the two. After a while in a karaoke club, Okano planned to give her chocolate to Maehara. But the pair were then interrupted by Korosensei bursting in and being caught unaware by some of the students who answered Maehara's call. Having not been told of the plan, Okano throws her chocolate to Maehara and kicked him in the face before leaving in emotional anger. Okano spent the next day rebuffing Maehara's reconciliation attempts, still mad from the events of the previous night. At one point she even knocked out Nagisa who attempted to mediate the situation by throwing chair to him. Eventually Maehara outwits Okano by intentionally making her mad again and get her to kick him, having earlier replaced the hidden blade in her shoe with chocolate. Maehara admitted however that he would not have been in sync with her song choices at karaoke if he did not fancy her, briefly silencing Okano before getting violent once more when Maehara start mention about her silence.

Aftermath

Seven years after Graduation, Okano has become the Captain of Acrobat Performance Team by making her own club at the university she enrolled in, using back of the Class E mountain as her base of operations for training.
