Hajime has never canonically mentioned loving or being intimate with Orange Juice, but is depicted in a now infamous scene during the party in Chapter One holding a glass of it. Never again does Hajime hold or mention orange juice.
The fandom jokingly says that Hajime Hinata is in love with Orange Juice, even drawing parallels between it and Mikan Tsumiki, because the Japanese word for orange is mikan. The fanworks consisted on crack fics, edits, fan art, and videos. In the fan fiction scene, Hajime is often paired up with Nagito Komaeda as well, or alternatively without him, leaving Nagito being pissed that Hajime's true love is orange juice.
However, much like Komaeda x Bagels, Hinata x Orange Juice makes up a good deal of the jokes surrounding his character.
- Despite Hajime being one of many people at the party seen holding beverage, Hinata x Orange Juice is the only ship to have received recognition among the potential cargo ships.
- At the party, Teruteru is also seen with a glass of orange juice beside him.
