|Species / Type||Pekoponian|
Senshu Hinata died when Akina was very little, so Akina, now a grandmother herself, always longed to see her.
An alien from the planet Kawaru, a race with metamorphic powers, who was helped by Akina Hinata, transformed into Senshu Hinata before leaving the planet as a way to thank Akina for her help. According to Kururu, he did that because Senshu Hinata was the person that Akina wanted to see the most.
Her name isn't mentioned in the story itself, but it was revealed in an extra feature of the 5th DVD of the 3rd season.
Senshu literally means "thousand falls". Hinata means "a sunny place" or "to face the sun".
