Trivia

  • Hasebe's birth date (March 1) is the same birth date of Sekimoto's wife[2]
  • The three-hit combo she used to attack three villains in a cutscene of River City Super Sports Challenge ~All Stars Special~ has been made into an in-game move in River City Melee: Battle Royal Special.
  • While the team she leads is called Cheering Girls, Hasebe herself has not been depicted as a cheerleader. She does act as a cheerleader for the Historical Drama team (as Okoto).
  • In River City Super Sports Challenge ~All Stars Special~ because Hasebe also serves as the game's MC, and the cheerleaders also affiliate with other teams in a non-playable capacity, playing as them in will result in two instances of a girl appearing in some scenes.
