Hina seems to be an energetic girl, who is crazy and fascinated over BL and/or yaoi. Her yaoi interest was revealed in Episode 4, when Yui asked her about the strain in their clique's boys relationship. This was the first time she was shown to talk in front of the audience even though she was introduced in Episode 2. Hachiman feels that Hina's love for yaoi and her openness to express it was to scare the boys away from her which still is debatable.
The fact that she hangs out with Miura gives away that she is cute. Miura says that she’s a real hit with the guys and plenty of those guys asked Miura to introduce them to her, but Hina always refused to meet with them.She is also very perceptive of the mood of her group of friends, whom she cares deeply for. She thinks that she is always forcing her personality and desires on others and she doesn't like herself for being selfish.Hina also says that she is rotten to her core.

During the athletic festival committee, Ebina present her idea of Btaish event and prescribe Hayato to be the captain of the white team also showing the picture care free smile of Hayato in one of her slide presentation, to which Hachiman feels that Hina is slyly selling her idea with the trade mark of Hayato which proved to work since most volunteers are girls and the committee chair-person being Sagami, who all have their crush or interest in Hayato.
AbilitiesEbina has a great leadership skills which is shown during the class play for cultural festival. Ebina was the organizer, producer, director and screen play writer of the class 2F. She was recommended for athletic festival committee for her creativity in-order to make the events exciting.
She can also read the atmosphere of her group and always act to smooth things off. She is very observant, that she is able to realize the changes around her. This can be seen during the chain messages incident where she told Yui, albeit maniacally due to her BL obsession, of her suspicion that the three members of Hayato's clique Ooka, Yamato and Tobe are competing to get Hayato's attention.
