She then asks him if he could spar with her, telling him that her muscles are a bit tight. Hayate accepts and they spar together. After the fight they wish each other good luck, and then Hayate departs with Ayane. Shortly after her recent close-to-victory performance in the fifth tournament , Hitomi heads once again to New Zack Island and once there, she still has concerns about the issue of Ein returning to his real identity as Hayate.
Hitomi rapidly regains focus and decides to have some fun before returning to her training for the next tournament. During the last day on the island, Hitomi finally felt so well about the time enjoyed on the island. She plans to begin her training for the next tournament once she gets back, admitting that this time, she will not lose to anybody. Hitomi went on a treasure hunt with Leifang and then sparred to see who could win the treasure.
However, before they could collect the prize, a tentacle from a giant squid took the treasure, with their being forced to flee the doomed ship. Some time later, Hitomi brought out some Kshitigarbha statues, presumably as practice to hone her Karate skills, and was in the midst of counting down in German when Honoka appeared and requested that the two spar for the upcoming tournament. Hitomi agreed to Honoka's request, though she warned that she wouldn't go easy on her.
Hitomi then beat Honoka, who humbly thanked her and departed, although not before bidding farewell alongside her friend Marie Rose one of the "eins" statues, with Hitomi stating she'll see her at the tournament. Hitomi also briefly teased Leifang regarding the latter's "challenge letter" to Jann Lee , saying it came across as a love letter, and also worked with Leifang to create some chocolates for their respective loved ones for Valentine's Day.
She also encountered Eliot at the museum and briefly sparred with him. Despite losing the fight, Hitomi is impressed by his skills. She politely refuses his offer to help her up and states that she won't lose to him when they meet in the tournament. Indeed at the tournament she meets Eliot again at the quarterfinals and this time she defeats him, advancing to the semifinals. Later she lost to Diego , who went on to become the runner up of the tournament. Hitomi arrived at the Venus Islands due to wanting to partake in the Venus Festival.
However, she mostly was unsure how to do the festival regarding its requirements of "beauty" and "strength". In particular, she wasn't sure how to achieve the "beauty" part. Despite this, she nonetheless resolved to do her best. She met the Owner of the island when baffled as to where she ought to go, and ultimately agreed to be his partner upon learning such was part of the rules. Hitomi is normally clad in denim jackets, tank-tops and jeans with work-out gloves and her pink headband.
Hitomi is of average height, with a slender and athletic build, she has bluish-grey eyes and shoulder-length dark brown hair with a front fringe, normally worn with a pink headband. Throughout the series, her height and bust measurements have changed, through only by a couple of centimeters: In Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball , she is 5'4'' cm tall with a 89 cm bust; in Dead or Alive 4 , she is 5'3'' cm tall with a 90 cm bust, and in Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 , she is 5'2'' cm tall with a 89 cm bust.
Her clothing often bears a western appearance, with outfits consisting mostly of jeans, tank-tops, and denim jackets, complete with protective fighter's gloves. A running detail on her jeans is that the back label always bears the initials of the game she's in; for example, in Dead or Alive 4 , the label reads "DOA4". Hitomi also sometimes sports her own emblem, usually printed on the front of her tank-top or the back of her jacket.
The emblem, in its simplest form, is the shape of an eagle with fanned-out wings. More detailed versions of the emblem show the eagle in greater style, holding a banner in its talons with Hitomi's name upon it. Phrases like "Thanks for the fight" and "My fists are on fire" may also be printed on it.
In Dead or Alive 5 , her appearance has been made to be more realistic; her face model has been updated although her ears and face were modified in the final version due to negative feedback , and her hair is now slightly shorter, with more feathered bangs.
Her original outfit now consists of a white tank top with a black bra underneath, with sneakers instead of boots. Her secondary outfit is similar except her denim jacket and yellow tube top returns in Ultimate has been replaced with a green letterman-style hoodie with the letter "H".
In Ultimate version of the game, she receives a ponytail as her new hairstyle with short side locks and her hair pulled back with a green barrette accessory. In Last Round, she receives a short bob-cut style similar to Christie but with her same normal fringe and slightly more coiffed towards her face.
In Dead or Alive 6 she wears her karate attire as her default outfit as a contrast to her primary casual outfits in the previous games.
She wears an off-white short sleeved karate gi which is tucked into her black karate belt with both Germany and Japan flags embedded on the right sash.
Underneath her outfit is her white tank top with a small black eagle design on front and a matching off-white karate pants. To complete the outfit, she wears a white headband on her forehead. Hitomi is a friendly, cheerful and energetic young woman but is also a hard-working martial artist, through-and-through. Her victories have come as a result of a grueling, life-long training regimen as well as a complete commitment to her studies and her art.
Not only has Hitomi practiced her techniques, she has studied them, coming to understand the deeper principles behind karate as well as of the art itself. Owing to this, some of her training regiment included doing aerobic exercises for the abs and spine, as well as push-ups times each, which she does even during vacations, with beach volleyball , rock climbing , tree climbing, and running a single lap around the perimeter of the island called a Nimba run also being implied to be part of the regiment.
In addition, Honoka also implied that part of her training regiment when in her home country of Germany involved fighting bears. She is very much an honorable competitor and always fights fairly in a match, to do otherwise would bring shame to her name, her martial art, and her father's dojo. Her honorable nature was such that she refused any offers of a differing strategy to win even from friends in activities other than Karate.
Often after winning, she will compliment her opponent rather than shame them like other fighters in the series. She is also fair in her dealings with others, treating everybody equally and with the respect that they deserve.
She will defend others who are being treated harshly, this is demonstrated when she tried to defend Leifang from Jann Lee. Despite her Japanese name and study in karate, it appears that Hitomi is acclimated more into the German lifestyle than that of the Japanese, having been born and raised in Germany, often sporting Western attire, and having a relatively close, more visible relationship with her German father compared to her relationship with her Japanese mother, who remains unknown.
The manslaughter conviction carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. The penalty for the poisoning convictions wasn't immediately clear. Prosecutors alleged the men gave Samantha a soft drink secretly spiked with GHB, or gamma-hydroxybutyrate, during a Jan. Samantha died the next day. Her best friend Melanie Sindone, now 16, also ingested the drug and was briefly in a coma, but survived. Cole's case was heard by a separate jury because authorities said he confessed.
The Southgate resident's jury began deliberations March 7, and the jury for his three co-defendants began Friday. The jury for Holtschlag, Brayman and Limmer reached its verdict shortly before noon Monday, and the judge sealed it until Cole's jury reached its verdict Tuesday.
But producer Manfred Eicher does this sort of thing at least as well as did John Culshaw, and probably better than anyone working today. I have no complaints, even if the piano is 12' wide" . Despite a 4 out of 5 stars rating, a less enthusiastic Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell states that "Jarrett pulls further away from the old rousing and thoroughly American gospel, blues and folk roots of earlier concerts toward a more abstract concept" and that "[his] virtuosic abilities are never in doubt, and he rarely flaunts his technique for its own sake, but one senses that the inspiration level is down; one doesn't come out of the CD all charged up as with many earlier solo concerts.
The first track on the album is a characteristic lengthy minutes solo improvisation entitled "October 17, ". The second track is a performance of "The Wind", a ballad by American jazz composers Russ Freeman and Jerry Gladstone , the first time that Jarrett included composed works by anyone else in any of his solo piano live albums.
