Isami Hijikata (土方 イサミ, Hijikata Isami?) was a first type Quasi-Spirit that first appeared in Date A Live Fragment: Date A Bullet.


Isami participated in the Killing Game in Malkuth. She fought against Ayame Takeshita before siding with her to fight against Kurumi Tokisaki and Empty. She was eliminated by Kurumi and later turned into a doll by Doll Master.


Isami looked distinctly athletic. Her messy short hair, sports shorts, and blue jersey over a shirt exemplify this considerably. She had reddish-brown hair and identically colored eyes. It was also stated that her eyes had a dangerous glint to them, hinting at her cheerful attitude towards killing.[1]


As a tomboyish girl, Isami loved to battle. Unlike the other girls who ended up in the Neighboring World, she had little concern about her past life. Despite being aware of her long time rival Ayame's hatred towards her, Isami liked her and had a feeling of fondness towards her.[2]

Isami also longed for a friend; however, due to the nature of her goal, she noted that any relationship with somebody would likely be torn apart. She thus suppressed this urge with her love for battle, unable to deny how excited it made her. She also appeared to use Ayame as a substitute for a friend, since Ayame was one of the only Quasi-Spirits to consistently fight against her, regardless of strength.[3] As a result of this, Isami was single-minded and ruthless, rarely stopping to ponder the repercussions of her actions and refusing to dwell too much on her own thoughts.

Powers and Abilities[]

Unsigned Angel: Ippondatara (堕天一箇神 いつぽんだたら?. lit. "Fallen Fragmented God")

Weapon: Nodachi

Astral Dress: Kuroito Odoshi (特攻霊装くろいと七八番おどし?. lit. "Kamikaze Attack Spirit Dress, Number 78")

Isami used Ippondatara to enhance her reflexes, which she could then proficiently use to deliver spontaneous cutting techniques that normally wouldn’t allow the opponent to defend or even escape. When she launched her attack, the only thing that could stop it was either a force outside of her range capable of overwhelming her, or to prevent Isami from attacking at the very beginning.


  • (To Empty) "If you don’t fight, a Quasi-Spirit is also unable to survive. Just like us!” [4]
  • (To Ayame Takeshita) "Ahahahahaha! Amazing, Ayame is the best after all! How can I lose to you!?" [5]


  • Ippondatara is the name a one-eyed, one-legged yokai in Japanese folklore.
  • The name Isami is written in katakana (イサミ), which has no special meaning.
  • Isami's surname Hijikata means "earth" (土, hiji) and "side" (方, kata).
