Himeno is a Burst II Sniper Rifle wielder who focuses on buffing allies and debuffing enemies. With Himeno being an SR rarity character tied to a limited event, we hoped that she would be at least as good as Neve, but sadly she looks pretty meh.
Since Himeno is a Sniper Rifle wielder, when you won't control her, she will always attack enemies with Full Charge. This means that in a boss scenario, you will be able to permanently keep it debuffed via her Skill 1, but even in non-boss stages, this will allow the rest of your team to deal more damage. Just keep in mind that DEF increase/decrease doesn't have that much impact on higher deficits.
Her S2 is a decent buff to Sniper Rifle allies, but sadly the values are a bit low, and also the cooldown is super long - 20 seconds. Still, this makes Himeno a good Burst 2 character for Union Raids when you throw her into your Alice team - this allows you to save stronger Burst 2 characters for your other teams.
Himeno's Burst skill further cements her placement in Alice's team as the skill gives a decent damage charge damage buff to your Burst III character, but the buff also works with Snow White's (since charge damage affects SW Burst) - so if you lack Poli or XAnne, you can safely pair Himeno with your SW and profit from it.
Overall, Himeno is just an average character that can help you when you're a new player who started playing the game during the collab, but once you manage to pull some stronger Burst II characters, you will bench her pretty fast.
decent supporter Burst II for Alice and SW teams,
lacks versatility - she works only with Alice or Snow White's teams and only on bosses,
SR so using her hurts your team's power.
We will add it as soon as it is possible!
