Hana (ハナ Hana ), like Saya, is one of the 'girls-in-training' under Akesato. She is the polar opposite of Saya, being very loud, blunt, upbeat and caring in her own strange way. She dislikes katanas. Her father was an umbrella maker and spoke loudly about honor. When her mother was sick, he did not sell his swords for a doctor. What happened to them is unknown but it is assumed that the mother died of the illness. She wants Tetsu to make her his new mother out of compassion. She has a big crush on Sanosuke after he saved her from thugs at a festival.
