Hatate Himekaidou (姫海棠 はたて, Himekaidou Hatate) is a tengu reporter who makes a newspaper called "Kakashi Thoughtographic Report" (花果子念報). Unlike her colleague Aya Shameimaru, she never goes outside for her newspaper research. Instead, she uses her ability called thoughtography. After reading Aya's Bunbunmaru Newspaper, she decided to observe Aya's way of gathering for her articles.

Concept[edit]

Name[edit]

Her full name is Hatate Himekaidou (姫海棠 はたて). The kanji for Himekaidou (姫海棠) mean "princess", "sea/beach" and "crabapple tree" respectively. Himekaidou itself is a kind of toringo crabapple. Hime kaidou also refers to a side-road, often taken by women or travelers who wanted to avoid thieves.

Appearance[edit]

A tengu with brown eyes, and long brown hair in pigtails with purple ribbons. She wears a pinkish shirt with purple trim on the collar and a thin black tie, a black band around one arm, a purple tokin, a skirt in black/purple checker pattern with a floral pattern on the purple, a small brown pouch on her hip, thigh-high black socks (which are rolled down just below her knees), and pale purple-ish red geta sandals with purple straps. She carries a camera, looking like a modern cell phone, with a yellow/dark yellow checker pattern, a heart on it, and a brush hanging from it like a charm.

Hatate's clothes have a lot of purple color. Purple color symbolizes "mystic" or "royalty". "Mystic" might be associated with her spiritual powers. "Royalty" might refer to Himekaidou - princess. It may be also a reference to the deadly sin, "pride".

Story[edit]

Hatate's appearance in Wild and Horned Hermit
Double Spoiler

Hatate is the second playable character in Double Spoiler. During the Spoiler Stage, she confronts Aya, and has a picture-taking showdown with her, all the while debating the pros of her journalistic style and the cons of Aya's journalistic style.

In Wild and Horned Hermit, she and Aya appear to be covering Kanako's nuclear reactor experiment, which may point to Hatate trying to collect field data.

Relationships[edit]

Aya Shameimaru[edit]

Refer to Newspaper section.

Minor or Unknown Meetings or Associations[edit]

Momiji Inubashiri[edit]

Hatate appears to somewhat admire her colleague Momiji Inubashiri's senses of sight and smell, and is rather impressed by her spell cards.

Tenma[edit]

Hatate's chief is Tenma.

Additional Information[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • A silhouette of Hatate occupies the front of Double Spoiler's jewel case.
    Hatate silhouetted on Double Spoiler's cover
  • Her thoughtography camera closely resembles a cell phone of some sort. It was apparently made by the kappa. It is possible that the kappa reverse-engineered something left behind by someone who was spirited away to Gensokyo.

Fanon[edit]

  • Some fans joke around saying that Hatate uses Google to get all her pictures instead of going outside like Aya Shameimaru.
  • Hatate's purple clothing and thoughtography ability seem to all point to Joseph Joestar of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, specifically his part 3 incarnation where he has the stand "Hermit Purple", which can project images of any target in the world onto paper by smashing a camera with it. Aya used to be pictured a lot with Joseph too...
  • Because of the purple colors she wears, an artist on Pixiv has created and popularized an emo version of Hatate called "はたたん" (hata-tan) who is usually seen with black hair, scars, and bags under the eyes. [1]
  • There's a rather notable catchphrase that western fans have created called "Hataters gonna Hatate", a word play on "Haters Gonna Hate". [2]
  • Soon after her conception, she has been associated with scallops with the cause being the Japanese word for them is "hotate"" , which sounds similar to her name.

  彼女は新聞記者なのだが、外へ取材に出かける事は無かった。
  何故なら彼女は念写で写真を撮り、その写真を元に記事を書いていたからである。

  念写とは、はたての持っているカメラにキーワードを入れるとそれにちなんだ写真が見つかるという物だった。

  はたてはそれを便利に思い、家から出る必要性を感じなくなってしまったのだ。

  念写では情報のスピードと新鮮さに問題があったのだ。

Modern Day Thoughtography Reporter


Himekaidou Hatate

Race: Crow Tengu
Ability: Ability of to the extent of using thoughtography.

Hatate is a reporter that never goes outside for her newspaper research.
She takes pictures using thoughtography and uses them for her articles.

Hatate's thoughtography works by inputting keywords for her camera, which she uses to find associated photos.

She doesn't feel the need to go outside because this is convenient.

The newspaper she writes, Kakashi Thoughtographic Report, has never been that popular.
This is only natural, for the articles she wrote were things people had heard of already.
Thoughtography lacks speed and freshness.

Then Hatate read Aya's Bunbunmaru Newspaper.

"These articles are utter nonsense, but why do they have this strange appeal? Why is it that its headlines never overlap with other newspapers'?"

In order to find out Aya's secret, Hatate decided to observe her.

That was when she found out Aya's secret.
Aya wasn't covering events; Aya was causing the events themselves.
