Hiramitsu Hinata (平光ひなた?) is a main character in Healin' Good♥Pretty Cure. Hinata's alter ego is Cure Sparkle (キュアスパークル?) and she is known as the Pretty Cure of Light. She has a habit of saying "Really" (めっちゃ Meccha?) a lot.

Bio

Appearance

Hinata is a young girl with medium-long soft brown hair worn in curled twin-tails bound by braided segments of hair and matching-colored eyes. She has a protruding lower lip, which is a striking facial feature of hers. Casually, she wears a yellow top with a design at the middle, a green skirt with a black belt and silver buckle, and a white and navy oversized sporting jacket, which she doesn't wear during the summer, with black-white socks beneath the magenta and white sneakers.

As a child, her hair was shorter and her ponytails were tied with yellow ribbons. She once wore a white blouse and orange yellowish suspender dress.

As Cure Sparkle, her eyes turn green and her hair becomes blonde, worn in a pair of thickly puffed shoulder-length twin-tails and cones resembling cat ears. On the left is a pearl clip with an orange gem heart on top. Her outfit consists of a yellow ruffled sleeveless jacket worn over a yellow, dark blue, and orange top with two spiky coattails and a pale yellow heart in the back and green heart-shaped ribbons on each side. On her chest is an orange bow with a star-shaped brooch. Her skirt is cream-colored and fluffy with a mint ruffle on top of it. She also wears bright yellow and orange Mary Jane's with thick heels and a strap around the ankles with burgundy stockings. Her accessories include white gloves with orange hearts on the back, white pom-pom earrings, and a golden choker.

In her Special Healin' Good Style form, her hair gets longer and curlier with mint green and light green ruffles on the left side of her tiara. Her top now has pale cream sleeves, replacing her armbands. The top part of her outfit is now yellow while her earrings become smaller pom-poms with a yellow four-pointed star on top. Under the bow on her chest is a light mint green ruffle while her coattails grow to near her ankles with pom-poms on each tip, with two additional ones appearing in the front. Under that is a mint green and light green layered skirt. Her gloves are replaced with thin cream bracelets with two pom-poms and her shoes are now short yellow boots with a white star on top and trimmed with thick pale cream fur. She has large pale yellow wings.

Personality

Hinata is a bright, outgoing, and friendly second-year middle school student who isn't good at studying. She tends to speak her mind, relevant or not, but she always apologizes once she realizes she did something wrong. She absolutely loves fashion and cosmetics. Although mostly hasty, rash, and easily sidetracked, Hinata cares for her friends a lot and will do anything to help them if they're in a pinch. Sometimes, Hinata has doubts about herself, but gradually learns to come to terms with herself.

Relationships

  • Hanadera Nodoka - Upon meeting Nodoka, Hinata is extremely excited to become friends with Nodoka. She even gives Nodoka a nickname: "Nodokacchi" (のどかっち?).
  • Sawaizumi Chiyu - Chiyu and Hinata are classmates and friends. Hinata gives her the nickname "Chiyuchi" (ちゆち?). Initially, Hinata struggles to make friends with Chiyu since they are polar opposites, but in the end they overcome their differences and become better friends. Hinata enjoys using wordplay to amuse Chiyu.
  • Nyatoran - When meeting him, although shocked to know he can speak, she warms up to Nyatoran really quickly, even immediately accepting his offer to become his partner.
  • Hiramitsu Youta and Hiramitsu Mei - Her older brother and sister respectively. Although she finds herself envious of their talents and insecure about how she compares to them, she still cares about them.

Etymology

Hiramitsu (平光?) - Hira (?) means "peace" [1], while Mitsu (?) has many different meanings, such as "light", "glow" or "sparkle" [2].

Hinata (ひなた?) - There is a kanji equivalent that eludes to Hinata's theme, 日向 which means "sunny place". [3].

Sparkle is a verb that can mean "to shine brightly with a lot of small points of light" [4].

History

Meeting Nodoka

Hinata meets Nodoka after running into her. Initially, she apologizes for accidentally knocking Nodoka over but after realizing that Nodoka is fine, she invites Nodoka to visit her family's juice shop and animal clinic sometime soon. At school, Hinata is extremely excited to know that Nodoka is the transfer student and is delighted to learn that Nodoka is sitting behind her.

Meeting Nyatoran and Becoming Cure Sparkle

Hinata first comes across Nyatoran when he gave back her lip gloss. She quickly grows fond of him, although she is shocked to learn he can talk. Later on, she finds out Nodoka and Chiyu haven't escaped the mall so she runs back into the epicenter to try and find them. There, she witnesses them transform into Pretty Cure. After fangirling for a little while, she quickly lashes out at the Megabyogen when she sees the duo struggling. Nyatoran is impressed with the way Hinata is handling the situation and asks her to be his partner. She accepts and the two combine powers to become Cure Sparkle. Sparkle is excited by her new appearance but quickly becomes serious to defeat the Megabyogen with Healing Flash.

Coming to Terms with Herself

When Hinata realizes Nodoka has no recent photos of herself, Hinata decides to take her and Chiyu to the mall that was doing a fashion event. There, she helps the pair pick accessories but while searching for dresses, Hinata discovers Nodoka had passed out. Feeling bad, Hinata suggested they call it a day, but Nodoka and Chiyu insist they keep shopping. However, Latte runs off and just as Hinata catches up to her, a Megabyogen appears. Hinata transforms and recklessly fights by herself but when Shindoine insults her, she hesitates, leaving an opening for the Megabyogen. Luckily, Nodoka and Chiyu join the battle and tell Sparkle they love her just the way she is. This boosts Sparkle's confidence and she manages to purify the Megabyogen.

After the first battle with Batetemoda, Hinata begins to grow anxious and wants to give up on being Sparkle, which upsets Nyatoran. She later reveals that since childhood, she had always viewed herself as less talented compared to her brother and sister. Therefore, she would frequently drop activities due to a lack of self confidence. At first, she wants to stop trying to find the Megabyogen, when a little girl tells her that Mei is trapped inside her van. However after being encouraged by Nodoka and Chiyu, she slowly regains her confidence, and bravely faces the Megabyogen. She then begins to feel happier after she realizes what she brings to the group.

Helping Nyatoran with Feelings

When Kusaka Orie, the owner of a fragrance shop returns Nyatoran, Hinata finds out that Nyatoran has a crush on Orie. Wanting to make him happy, Hinata helps Nyatoran deliver the gifts he made to Orie. But after finding out that Orie loves another man, Hinata comforts Nyatoran, making their friendship even stronger.

Cure Sparkle (キュアスパークル?) is the Pretty Cure alter ego of Hinata. In order to transform, she needs her transformation Element Bottle, her Healing Animal partner Nyatoran and her Healing Stick.

Transformation

The transformation begins with Nyatoran leaping up and shouting "Start!" before entering the Healing Stick. Hinata then holds up the stick and her Transformation Element Bottle as she completes the transformation phrase. She inserts the bottle into the stick as it becomes surrounded in a white aura. Hinata and Nyatoran then say "Cure Touch!" together as Hinata presses the right paw once before a stream of sparkles appears from the glowing tip of the stick. Hinata's hair is let out of its twintails where she is then shown standing on top of sparkles while other yellow sparkles follow her. She waves the stick around as the sparkles merge and turn into a white coat that falls onto Hinata's shoulders. Then she taps her feet and her boots appear to follow by her gloves before the coat wraps around her body and forms her dress. Two green ribbons appear on both sides of Hinata's dress while an orange bow appears in the front. Hinata's hair then grows longer and turns bright yellow, with part of it styled similarly to cat ears, with her earrings and tiara appearing before tiny sparkles also appear in her hair. After striking a cute pose, a gold sparkle-shaped brooch appears in the center of the bow, completing the transformation. Sparkle then winks before pressing the paw again. She then poses with her Healing Stick as she and Nyatoran start the introduction. After she and Nyatoran wink at the camera, Sparkle leaps up and does a backflip before striking her finishing pose.
