Who is Hinata Sakaguchi?

Hinata Sakaguchi is a Japanese otherworlder, which means she was also transported from Japan to this new world just like Rimuru. She is also the leader of the Western Holy Church’s Ten Great Saints and her position is second only to the Holy Emperor in authority within the Church.

When Hinata was still living in Japan her life was difficult due to the fact her father was a gambling addict. Hinata’s father racked up a massive debt from gambling on horse races and instead of allowing herself to be at the mercy of debt collects Hinata decided to murder her father of his life insurance.

Hinata’s mother, unfortunately, witnessed her child killing her father and had an emotional breakdown. Hinata once again felt threatened by this turn of events and planned to kill her mother too. However, before that could happen Hinata was whisked away by a “strong gale” (Tornado to Oz, anyone?) when she was 15 years old. As soon as she arrived in the new world she was immediately attacked by three bandits.

Hinata ended up gaining two Unique Skills, which she used to kill the three bandits. Shortly after, Shizue Izawa, whom Rimuru’s form is based off of, decided to make the girl her disciple. Shizue was the only person to be kind to Hinata during those early years in the new world. Hinata used her skill Usurper to copy Shizue’s skills and quickly surpassed her in strength and skill.

Hinata began to feel that her attachment to Shizue was making her weak and decided to leave her behind. Hinata eventually became the most powerful knight in the Holy Empire Ruberios and the leader of the Ten Great Saints.

In That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime we’ll likely get to see how Hinata discovers that the Western Holy Church is actually under the control of vampires and conspiring with Demon Lord Valentine. Will Hinata be able to defeat Valentine? What will happen when she later encounters the real Demon Lord, “Ruler of the Night”, Luminous Valentine, who is a vampire princess? We’ll have to wait until That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 in order to find out!
