Threatened by her psychic power, Nitta allows Hina to live with him. Nitta has to take care of Hina, who is a lazy and sloppy roommate. Gradually, Hina begins to trust Nitta, because he never tries to use her power for his own personal gain.
The Hinamatsuri TV anime is directed by Kei Oikawa and features animation by feel.. Hinamatsuri will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 25:40 time slot on Friday night is actually on Saturday morning at 1:40 AM JST.
