Personality and AppearanceEdit
Hideyoshi has blonde hair of medium length
tied in two ponytails, the hair bobbles of her ponytails are like orange balls, she has red eyes and fair skin. At the start of the anime she wears her school uniform, which is a white top, with a brown collar that has golden yellow lining, beneath the collar is a yellow bow, she also wears a brown skirt, black socks and yellow shoes. Hideyoshi carries a brown schoolbag which includes a book about the Warring States,her gym uniform and her beloved mobile phone. Mid episode 2 she wears her own unique outfit consisting of a yellow and orange belly top with a vest underneath a skirt with a large orange bow at the back,gold arm warmers and leg warmers,stockings and sandals with white socks.
Hideyoshi is clumsy and childlike and at the beginning of the story is rather a lazy, even self-centered girl, revealing to Date sensei, in the first episode that fashion and snacks are her life, that her hobbies end up making her run late for school and it is openly shown that she lacks when it comes to studying. However she is a totally good-natured, innocent, cute, warm and friendly girl, as shown when she helps village peasants in episode 2 which is only one example of her kindness. For most of the series she struggles in self defense, walking for long distances and in combat. Hideyoshi is a cheerful, fun loving and ever complaining young teenage girl to the point viewers may find her slightly irritable. Overall her character is pretty typical when it comes to female anime heroines and protagonists. She struggles to keep to the same pace as the other warriors and Hideyoshi and Masamune are the only warriors who do not have their own unique attacks. In episode 2 however at the last fight with Akechi Mitsuhide she uses a spear in combat. It is mentionable that Hideyoshi is materialistic, at least for the first few episodes, using her phone and telling Nobunaga that she can't live without it, even going in front of Nobunaga to save her phone as Nobunaga was about to crush her phone with her giant Blade of Fury.
