Masaya Hinata (日向 晶也 Hinata Masaya?) is the main protagonist of the Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue visual novel game and a main character in the anime series. He is a second-year at Kunahama Academy and Asuka's coach.


Masaya is a young man with slightly spiky, short chestnut-brown hair and green eyes. He is usually seen with his school uniform.

In his Flying Suit, Masaya wears a suit that covers his entire body except for his shoulders. The suite is white but it is black in various areas, with green stripes. He also wears white gloves and white competitive grav-shoes.


He is always calm, but when it's about the FC club he becomes serious about what he's doing.


The protagonist who once hoped for a future in this sport. He used to love the sport of Flying Circus when he was a child, constantly training and winning competitions. But after a terrible defeat in a race against another child, he fell out of love with it. However, he met the transfer student Asuka Kurashina, and teaching her to fly the skies, the old passion returned. He began to take part in Flying Circus again.


Masaya was first seen helping Asuka Kurashina with searching for her keys. When he finds the keys, he heard a voice coming from the sky (Misaki Tobisawa) Masaya was surprised when he saw Misaki flying over, asking what he was doing. He said that he was helping Asuka searching for her keys. When they noticed they were going to be late, Misaki suggested to go flying but Asuka had no idea how to do it. Masaya and Misaki were in shock. When they were at the flying send off place, they went and flew over to the school. Arriving at the school, they ran for their life because if they were late, their darkest secrets will be spilled by the teacher.


Asuka Kurashina

Masaya is the first person Asuka meets on his first day in Kunahama Academy. Masaya is also the coach of Asuka. Asuka generally feels comfortable with being with Masaya and he feels that he can never leave her alone. It is later revealed, that the two are childhood friends and they used to play together in the past.

Misaki Tobisawa

Masaya and Misaki are close friends and on good terms, and they call each other by first names. They also seem to be quite open with each other, and it seems like they have known each other for quite a long time. It was thanks to Misaki that Masaya stopped playing FC for a while.

Mashiro Arisaka

Masaya trained her in FC. Masaya was also the one who helped Mashiro change her shoe type from fighter to speeder.

Rika Ichinose

They are neighbors and they have been to an FC training camp both schools. Masaya often saw Rika naked, which made her angry at him.

Aoi Kagami

Kagami Aoi was Masaya's coach in elementary school for FC and then a teacher at his school in high school. She was described as the "scary" teacher by Masaya to Asuka. She was also the one who taught Masaya the FC techniques "Sonic Boost" and "Blaster Roll".

Kazunari Shindo

Masaya inspired Shindo to take up FC and as soon as he did, Masaya quit. Shindo has been training in order to beat him someday.


Masaya is considered an FC prodigy when he was a child as he was trained by Aoi. This makes the others have high expectation on him. But this expectation pressured him so much that he loses to Misaki during their first match and he decides to retire from FC. In Visual Novel Mashiro Route, it's that revealed despite being inactive at FC for a long time, his ability is still high enough that he can defeat Misaki in a match.


  • He once stopped playing FC because of an overwhelming defeat.
  • His first name, "Masaya" means "happy" in Filipino/Tagalog.
