Hanten (はんてん) is one of the main characters of Obsolete Dream. She is a demon girl and Kurotsuno's best friend.

 Appearance

Hanten has short gray hair, red eyes, and gray-ish skin. She has curly black horns with two white dots at the base of each, black wings, and a black curly tail. Her hands are also completely black. She wears a green hanten coat, as well as a white dress shirt, black tie, gray sweater, and dark gray pleated skirt underneath. She also wears gray socks and black shoes.

In her other form, she has a more maddened look to her, with her hair turning white and her horns changing to resemble her father's. She also has fair skin and red nails. She wears a red shirt, a black skirt, black knee-socks, and black boots. She retains her wings from her normal form, though she lacks a tail.

Personality

Hanten is a bloodthirsty, violent, scary, and alcoholic demon. For some unknown reason, she hates the sea and everything in it.

Background

Not much is currently known about Hanten's past. She used to have a different appearance, the details around which have yet to be revealed. She has also been said to be "an evildoer since ancient times," furthermore hinting at a backstory.

Obsolete Dream Cast

Kurotsuno

Kurotsuno is Hanten's best friend and housemate. Kurotsuno tolerates her, but at times also expresses sharp disapproval of her and her sleazy behavior.

Doodles and illustrations by Deep-Sea Prisoner indicate that Hanten and Olivia, Kurotsuno's past self, used to be close. They are depicted holding hands, and in one drawing, Hanten is shown holding Olivia bridal style. In the present, however, Kurotsuno shoves Hanten away whenever she initiates physical contact (e.g. grabbing Kurotsuno's shoulder or holding her hand); what caused this shift has yet to be revealed.

Met

Met is Hanten's subordinate who also has an unrequited crush on her. Like Kurotsuno, Hanten often acts violently towards Met. Unlike Kurotsuno, however, she seems to physically abuse Met as amusement and does this quite frequently.

Anten

It is unknown the kind of relationship that both of them have, though they seem to welcome each other's presence. While they are not related by blood in any way, they are implied to have a fundamental connection.

Bis

Bis is one of Hanten's acquaintances. Bis has expressed fear and skepticism about Hanten and her past.

Shikabone

Shikabone is scared of Hanten, as she likes bullying him. In one artwork, he is depicted fighting with Hanten in her albino form.

Other Characters

Tsumuri

It is unknown what relationship they have. Hanten once told Tsumuri about how Glasses blushes easily just by taking the hands of his girlfriend, Kiku.

Glasses

It seems that the two do not have any kind of relationship, but for some reason, Hanten knows how Glasses easily blushes when he is with his girlfriend, Kiku.

Trivia

  • Her name in Japanese means "inversio/negative image" and is also a pun on 半纏 (Hanten), a winter coat that she usually wears.
  • Hanten seems to have another "self," who is often seen with Olivia. This is probably her true form, as she bears much more resemblance to her family in this form. When drawn as a child, she is also depicted in her older form.
  • If you click on her full portrait in Deep Sea Prisoner's CHARACTER page, it will load up her alternate portrait.
  • Hanten has a scar with stitches on her chest; this is visible in a Skeb commission. Why she has this scar has yet to be officially revealed, though, in one illustration it has been shown that Shikabone pierced her through her chest in the same spot.
  • Hanten has red eyes, but in one drawing, her left eye is colored yellow; why this is the case is unknown.
  • It has been said that Hanten, "Hates fish more than anything. Also hates the sea. Will eat anything, but never fish. Dreams of a world where the sea has totally dried up." What caused this resentment has yet to be revealed.

Quotes

  • "Sheesh. Soon as we find her, we're outta here." (To Met about Kurotsuno - Mogeko Castle)
  • "Hee-hee-hee... ♪" (Mogeko Castle Bonus Room)
  • "Man, look at this place. Everybody just wants to sleep in because of some rain? Pathetic." (Obsolete Dream, Chapter 2)
