Waifu Wednesday: Takanashi Hoshino from Blue Archive

Hoshino Blue Archive

Welcome back to Waifu Wednesday, Niche Gamer’s column where we talk about characters, their appeal, and a little on their history.

Today’s waifu is Takanashi Hoshino from Blue Archive!

Hoshino is one of the first students we meet in the main story of Blue Archive since she’s the head of the Foreclosure Task Force, a club in Abydos dedicated to paying off the school’s debt.

After most of the school’s students left for economic reasons, Hoshino is the sole remaining third-year student in the school (in fact, the Foreclosure Task Force are the only students left in Abydos at all).

Hoshino’s past is shrouded in mystery, in her previous years at Abydos she was considered one of the most terrifying soldiers in all of Kivotos. But something changed in the last two years that completely changed her personality. The Hoshino of today is sleepy and aloof, though she’s a stalwart ally with her shotgun she’d much rather be napping.

Hoshino has endeared herself to fans with her unique way of talking. To appear more affable, she frequently talks like an old uncle and even refers to herself as “this ojisan”. Fans can expect more of Hoshino in the game as the upcoming chapter on JP servers will involve her and her history with Hina from Gehenna Academy. You can also see more of Hoshino for yourself in the Blue Archive anime!

Hoshino was suggested for this week’s waifu by a reader on Twitter.

Feel free to share who your waifu is on our Twitter or Facebook and who knows, we might feature them in a regular Waifu Wednesday post!

Blue Archive is available now on mobile devices. You can check out our review here! (as far as mobile games go, we still recommend it!) An anime series also premiered this season.
