A naturally charismatic Magical Girl who rose to the top of Neo-Magius. She's aiming for the very heavens in order to allow those around her to appreciate the freedom of love. She has a bright and easy-going personality, but when it comes to romance she is always thinking of her pure love for her childhood sweetheart.
The Doppel of perpetuity. Its form is a portrait. The master of this emotion holds mixed feelings towards her Doppel: though she feels a mysterious sense of kinship with it, she’s also frightened by the sense that her heart could be laid bare by looking directly at it. The Doppel responds by putting its master to sleep within the sphere connected to its body, in order to free her from the emotions that so vex her. While she sleeps, it attempts to fulfill her desires by stamping out each and every foe that refuses to understand her. Incidentally, the Doppel’s body is also a mere makeshift form projected from its master’s heart, and changes shape based on her own thoughts. It currently takes the form of a lovelorn wolf seeking its mate. The makeshift form will repeatedly regenerate as long as the sphere and ring remain intact, so caution is a must.
Powers and Abilities
As a result of her wish, the consciousness or soul of her boyfriend now resides in her mind after he committed suicide, allowing them to mentally communicate. In Arc 2 Another Story Chapter 8, Kanagi confirms his presence, indicating that he is not an illusion or delusion on Himena's part.
Himena's unique magic allows her to "synthesize" or "fuse" the unique magic of other Magical Girls for a limited time (approximately one hour) by making physical contact with each one involved. She can use this ability to transfer one Magical Girl's unique magic to another, such as when she transferred Hagumu Azumi's increased strength against Witches to Shigure Miyabi. In Arc 2 Another Story Chapter 7, she also gains the ability to synthesize magic with inanimate objects, such as Meiyui Chun's illusion magic to a broom.
It can thus be theorized that her wish allows her to access people's souls, not dissimilar from what Coordinators do. Similarly, Coordination gives Magical Girls access to the Connect ability, allowing them to share various aspects of their magic through physical contact.
- The characters of her last name mean "indigo" (藍) and "house" (家) respectively.
- She is the only character to use a pronoun followed by a suffix that is not her own name. In this case, it means something among the lines of "the cute me", "this cutie" or "my cute self."
- Before she was formally introduced, she was only known through her silhouette in the Arc 2 logo. Fans referred to her as "Orihime" or just "Hime" due to this silhouette before knowing her name.
- In addition, her design has some resemblance to the Legend of Orihime(織姫), specifically her hairstyle and traditional Japanese clothing.
- Furthermore, Hiko, the boyfriend who lives in her head, is speculated by fans to be based on Hoshihiko(星彦) or Hikoboshi(彦星) from that same Japanese fairy tale.
- Her doppel is named after the Greek monster "Scylla", a legendary monster who lives on one side of a narrow channel of water opposite her counterpart Charybdis. According to a version of the story, Scylla was once a nymph, but as Glaucus loved her, she was transformed into an unsightly monster. In some variants, it was Circe who transformed her as the enchantress loved Glaucus as well.
- Her weapon is a "heavenly raiment" or "feathered kimono" associated with Tennin, which are beings in Japanese Buddhism that are similar to angels.
- When she speaks, one can occasionally see stars in the script lines (★).

|The place we finally found isn't the ideal we dreamed of,
And even though no one will accept it, But it's a world with just the two of us, filled with happiness."Don't go anywhere else, Hiko-kun..."
|"Alright Hiko-kun, look over here!"
"Wh-what's going on with your screen!? Ears and whiskers..." "It's a pic of this cutie's bae, so you want to look cute, don't you?That's why this cutie's using an app to take a bunch of pics! Come on, hurry up and smile ★"
|Those cold true intentions melt in the hot water, and hot feelings change to steam. The rising emotions wiped away the haze in front of me and exposed my naked self. I'm sure that the coldness and warmth that you feel when you touch those messy feelings are fake. The only thing that is true is that we are wet with regrettable tears.||冷たい本音がお湯に溶けて、熱い想いが湯気に変わる
|"Let's all come back to buy and eat treats again. Next time, we'll treat you as an instructor ★."
"That's fine, but I don't have the motivation to pay for it." "Why don't we show how much we've grown and impress the instructor again?""...ok. However, the next one is limited up to 300 yen per person...”
|**Unique to Himena Aika**|
I've recalled that day numerous times.
The damp smell of summer, the hustle and bustle of the festival, your nervous face. And then... that sparkling toy ring.I'll never forget the thrill of that moment.
|The everyday life that might have been, the past that we miss but cannot return to.
Even if they're forced to do so with painful reluctance, the only thing that lies ahead is the future. No matter how painful or hard it is, Magical Girls don't give up.Aiming for the one and only future that shines ahead, a future that can be saved.
|A noisy night, with pillows flying and laughter echoing.
It's supposed to be an outlandish fantasy, yet somehow it feels so cozy Ever since I met you, I've been going crazyI can't give up this life, this world, anymore.
|"Now everyone, let's bathe our whole bodies in this candy-sweet Cola!
And don't worry about what's going on around you. Do what you want to do as much as you like!!So... Nagisa will eat eat as much cheese as she wants!"
そして周りのことなんか気にしないで 自分のやりたいことを好きなだけやっちゃえなのです!!というわけで... なぎさは好きなだけチーズ食べることにするのです!」
|Wh-what should I do! Such a figure in such a place ... It would be terrible if it was seen!
I have to do whatever it takes to not be seen! At least I have to do this...! Eek! Himena and her friends are here...!...uh...? Maybe I should cancel my transformation?...Is that...Ye-yes, that's what I should do!
|To be honest, I don't think I'm doing the right thing.
I'm just selfish, arrogant, and I'm just doing my best to be happy, so I'm not even interested in what kind of sacrifices will be made or resented.The only thing that matters is that our love is heavier than any life.
