Maria claims she is 17 at the beginning of the series. Between the first episode and the last episode over an entire year passes, Christmas happens twice and everyone ages a year.

Except for Maria of course, she remains 17, so so she claims.

There are only two possible explanations for this. The first is that she is lying, the second and more likely of the two is that she was born on February 29th on a leap year and that she is actually around 68 years old.

I will admit she looks really good for 68.

I'm honestly surprised there wasn't in the first season considering her popularity.

>>11282039

What makes her interesting? She seems like boring tsundere Mary Sue, and this is coming from someone who generally likes tsundere characters.
>>
>>11281949
maria going all kohaku? DO WANT!
>>
>>11282060

She's cute. I don't really like her though.

I'll admit a large part of it is because she's played by Rie Tanaka.
>>
>>11282071

A Mary Sue is a character without faults. But Hina has faults. She's afraid of heights, hates being alone and sometimes emotionally vulnerable. But thanks to Hayate, she overcomes some of her vulnerabilities.

Also she is also having a dilemma regarding Nishizawa - a newfound friend who she knows loves Hayate. But we know that Hina is deredere for Hayate. And then it becomes interesting from there.

But the anime has yet to show these scenes.
>>
ugh, damn you for making me want to find more hayate shit to buy. the phone strap of maria is gonna cost about 16 after shipping. fuck.
>>
>>11282071
Hina is a serious and dependable person, but her flirtatious side she shows to Hayate (still giggling about her "What's this, Hayate? Want to see?" teasing while fanning her chest, for example). It tempers her "serious" impression and shows that she's easily approachable, and that she's got a sense of humor.

I like her ability to make a difference and to overcome difficulties on her own.

Hina is EXTREMELY competitive and combative when she feels challenged. Tsundere = tsuntsun (mean) and deredere (kind,caring), and so far we haven't seen any "tsun" side of her yep, particularly not towards Hayate. A certain degree of tsun helps rounding out a character though, and we will be treated to that a bit later...

A character who is only dere is boring.

Emotionally vulnerable definitely fits. Hina is very emotional and very open about it - in the very first episode showing her, she got teary-eyed over the young bird in the nest. Nobody blushes cuter than her, and her mood swings from extremely happy to downcast to extremely mad are legendary. Very enjoyable to watch.

But there's more to her: She is very kind and caring by disposition, without falling into the "well-meaning but wimpy-moe" trap. She's a very good sport - see her reaction to her loss at the tournament. And most of all, she's not stuck up at all. She has all the makings and appeals of the ojousama type without the usual annoying air of superiority those characters usually exhibit.

However, what pushed her over the top and made Hina my favorite character ever will surface once we learn about her personal background, her fears and her hurts. It pains me that even though she definitely would be the best "match" to Hayate (him and her have alot in common), she still only has a total outsider chance of maybe 5% to have her "winning" in the end. Still - keep the hope alive, and her popularity count towering above the rest ^_^

Incorrect, having a lack of noteworthy flaws is a common characteristic (And I could easily argue that those flaws aren't really noteworthy) but not a prerequisite for the classification.

Regardless, i'm not interested in continuing this line of conversation, so i'll move on from this point. I find the character to be largely bland, cliched and most importantly, boring.

She is a character in a comedy, but yet she is not funny. She is a character who falls for the main character and relies on him heavily for no good reason even though she's supposed to be emotionally strong.

>>
>>11282174

At the beginning of the series she actually did seem like a dependable character and somewhat interesting. She seemed to be reliable and flirted with Hayate in the early episodes, but she quickly devolved from there.

She's supposed to be a strong reliable character, but yet she is actually extremely weak and relies on Hayate when he's practically a complete stranger. Instead of flirting with him she now turns bright red and acts like an idiot any time she's around him.

Tell us more:

Maria - more like Maria Sue
Nagi - shit sux
Ayumu - can't do shit against Hayate neither
Isumi - lol dumb
Sakuya - NOT FUNNY AT ALL

>>
>>11282432

Maria - Maria is like a wish fulfillment character, but she has a twist. She has a manipulative side which makes her interesting. She also almost seems like she enjoys picking on Hayate.

Nagi - Nagi is genuinely funny, has a lot of quirks and generally makes the show pretty amusing.

Ayumu - Ayumu is almost like a foil for Nagi and the other rich characters. Can be pretty funny at times too.

Isumi - Isumi isn't very interesting either. The whole getting lost constantly thing got boring about 30 episodes into Ranma.

Sakuya - Sakuya is funny and abusive. A good combo in this show.

Maria, a wish fulfillment character? Kind of, but she has enough twists to make her interesting with her devilish manipulative side.

Besides she is a side character and belongs that way. She is not interesting enough to get more screen time than she already gets in the anime. In that way she is similar to Hinagiku.
