Assassination Classroom Wiki

Hinano Kurahashi (倉橋 陽菜乃 Kurahashi Hinano) is a student in Korosensei's Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School.


Hinano has wavy chin-length orange hair, olive-brown eyes (peridot-green eyes in the anime) and she has a more petite frame than most of the girls in Class 3-E.


Hinano's personality is an energetic and positive girl who is always seen with a smile on her face regardless of whether she's trying to assassinate Korosensei or whatever else. Hinano is also a passionate animal and nature lover. She was also noted to be a "reliable assistant" for the group of boys who are on the path to becoming "sleazebags." This stems from the fact that she has older siblings who are all boys and as a result can handle even the sleaziest talk. She is a very soothing and calming person and is described as being innocent and genuine. She is also good at making money, particularly being able to assess the price of the stag beetles she was hoping to capture and sell and at the end of the manga managing to get parents to pay her handsomely to take their kids on nature hikes.


Kurahashi does not receive any notable focus until summer vacation where she displays her proficiency in biology as she held knowledge of what types of beetles would be in more demand and which ones wouldn't.

Seven years after the graduation and assassination of Korosensei, Kurahashi makes an income by conducting nature adventures for kids using the Class 3-E mountain.


Knifework: Kurahashi is the third best-ranked student in knifework along with Rinka Hayami and Toka Yada on the girls' side.

Biology: Kurahashi has extensive knowledge in biology as noted by Nagisa Shiota. She is familiar with different kinds of organisms as shown when she interacts with dolphins during the Summer Vacation arc.

Along with Toka Yada, Kurahashi is one of Irina's favorite students who are the only students who know about Irina's past and true personality. During the Valentine's day arc, she declares a war of affection against Irina that she will steal Tadaomi Karasuma from her, much to Irina's confusion.

Yada and Kurahashi are close friends and as a result, are frequently seen together. A notable example was during an effort to infiltrate Japan's space station, they distracted the guards by pretending they were lost.

Although Nakamura and Kurahashi aren’t often seen together, the two of them have bonded over bejeweling their knife sheaths and they also seem to have their airheaded moments together as they casually were showing them off during a school assembly, much to Tadaomi Karasuma's dismay.
