Lo and behold! A new face joins the ranks of the Sengoku women: link

What do you guys think of her design? Frankly, her outfit looks a bit too cutesy for my taste, but most of the Japanese fans won't mind since the whole moe aspect is popular over there.

It's Cai Wenji! She got lost in the dimensional vortex, and she's looking for Ranmaru after that one night stand. :lol:

No really, she's friggin' adorable.

I rather like it. It actually does sorta look like it could fit with the times. She looks pretty plain as far as SW females go, which I appreciate. No fancy headress, no odd outfit additions like a poncho and armor plating that clashes with the rest of the outfit.

And she actually doesn't look too loli. Overall, great design.

Hayakawa is beautiful, but cute at the same time. I would say she is a charming character.

I am fine with here, even if she is unnecessary and definately optional additional she looks good. Innocent and cute girl, what else could I say? don`t bring her husband Koei! Never!

Honestly this is a waste of a slot that could've been given to another female who should be in the game instead. Like Matsu, Lady Osen, Okatsu, or Sen Ikeda. All have tales and deeds about them, Hayakawa didn't really do much of anything.

They can't add every popular males/females in one game, that's not smart strategy. They've to keep some of them for the next games, that's why we've "filler" characters, so to speak.

There are plenty of characters instead who could've been used, I see her as someone you'd see in Empires or XL. I doubt they'll even mention her marriage to Imagawa as she'll spend most of her time with The Hojo since her husband to quote Sima Yi is an "Imbecile!"

If they wanted someone to add to the Imagawa instead they should've went with Sessai.

She looks quite plain in terms of her design which is understanding, although the wife of Ujizane she's seemingly quite humble hence I'm very much interested in her and role in-game however much that will be. I'm particularly confused by her coloring, she's not lavender for Imagawa and she's not red for the Hojo so where exactly does her allegiance lie, so long as it's not Azai I'm fine 'cause he already has enough going on.

I'm getting Kaguya vibes from her

To me she looks like a very watered-down Kaguya. I think her design is nice

Since I'm a newbie to SW I don't really have much to say, what's her weapon? I'm imagining going on her design it's going to be something silly, but I hope not.

I'm pretty sure it's a lacrosse racquet, fitting with the sports themed weapon of Yoshimoto

She is simply adorable. :heart:

I think her design is due to the reasons behind her marriage, so she seems to not be aligned to just one force aside from the Hojo from the clan insignia on her outfit, but that is just theory on my part.

I wonder if she will have any bonding with Ii Naotora in SW4 because they may have similar personalities.

I'm pretty sure this girl is just going to be the Cai Wenji of SW, which isn't a bad thing per se. I personally don't like Cai Wenji though so I doubt I'll care for this girl either.

She looks rather odd for a Hojo add though. Ujiyasu, Kotaro, and Kai all at least have accents of red in their designs but she is blue?!

She has a huge forehead.

It was clarified in the main SW thread that is not a lacrosse stick, but in fact a Dakyu (tl;dr: Japanese Polo) stick. Still silly, but at least it comes from the right area? :innocent:

The forehead thing I think is just a Japanese thing, something us Western folk won't really understand. I guess calling it a trend wouldn't be too far off? I wouldn't be shocked if we got a female character with messed up teeth either. :whistle:

My opinion on her though is pretty much the same as everyone else's. She looks nice, but I'm not necessarily thrilled. Hojo is my favorite clan all-around(or at least tied with Mori) so she has that going for her. I'll have to wait and see how she interacts with the rest of the Hojo, and any others. (Please let her interact with Kotaro. Please, please, please. Nice waifu girl and Chaos!Ninja interactions would be perfect).

I dunno man, a lot of people seem to like Ellen Page...

Anyway, I wonder what the heck her role in the story is gonna be. I know nothing about her or a lot of the characters she's tied to - assuming she's used as a pseudo-replacement for Imagawa Ujizane, could her inclusion lead to the addition of any new/previously unrepresented battles?
(despite the lack of proper mention of the Imagawa in her description and lack of Imagawa seal on her design, I still think she'll have an Imagawa palette swap or something)
