Hinata-sou's Easygoing "Kitsune"
In high school, Mitsune would befriend Naru and became close friends with the naive and younger girl. She was often instructed by Naru to turn down any romantic admirers that she got attention from and Mitsune was often rejected by other boys due to being considered high strung. When Naru gained a turor in the form of Seta Noriyasu to prepare for college entrance exams, Mitsune developed a crush on Seta and grew jealous of the attention that Naru received from him. She was one of the first residents to become part of Hinata Inn when it was reformed into an all-girl's dormitory, residing in Room 205.
Mitsune was developed as one of the major female leads in Ken Akamatsu's harem manga series, Love Hina. She was originally going to have personality traits belonging to Kaolla and serve as a sort of "straight man" to the antics in the inn as she commented on the stupidity of everyone there. She was also going to be the first inn resident that would be supportive of Keitaro's presence at the inn. She has appeared in anime adaptations of Love Hina that include the TV anime, Christmas special, Spring special and the Love Hina Again OVA series. She was voiced by Junko Noda in Japanese and Barbara Goodson in English.
Mitsune stands at 164 centimeters tall (about '5'4") with her three sizes being 87 cm for bust, 58 cm for hips and 83 cm for waist. She has short light-brown hair and brown eyes. She is 19 years old at the start of the manga and 20 in the anime. For the anime series, Mitsune is often wearing a purple long-sleeved shirt and a pair of black jeans.
Mitsune has a laidback and easygoing personality, mostly looking to do things for her personal entertainment. She can be mischievous as she often swindles money off others and will flirt with men to get what she wants. Her mischief earned her the nickname of "Kitsune" as like a fox, she will only open her eyes if surprised or trying to cause trouble. Despite her seemingly lazy and mischievous demeanor, she still cares for the other tenants as she serves as an older sister figure to the younger residents and knows when not to push things too far.
Mitsune was a freelance writer at the start of the series, often known to get drunk on sake and cause trouble for Keitaro with the other girls at Hinata Inn. She was involved with the other inn residents to track down Keitaro when he ran away to both Kyoto and Pararakelse Island. She also gave her support to Keitaro and Naru's relationship when she took notice of it waning due to Seta's return to Japan.
