  • Hino Anji Official Blog
  • Change! Foundation (Sometimes written Ch-ange! as a play on "Ange," the French word she took the name Anji from. Defunct as of 2017, now Huuug!)
  • Huuug Anji's new non-profit, which travels around Japan putting on plays to educate children. As with Ch-Ange! she often works with other former Takaraziennes.

  • After retiring, Anji returned to Osaka and became very active in charity for people effected by the 3/11 earthquake. In 2014 this charity work solidified into the Change! Foundation, of which she is acting director (代表理事), that works for charity through cultural and sports events. It seems she's actively recruiting friends from Takarazuka to perform in these events; Hanasaki Ririka almost immediately put on a charity concert for her after Ch-Ange!'s foundation.

  • In 2017 Ch-Ange! morphed into Huuug!, a nonprofit where she and other Takaraziennes put on plays aimed at teaching life skills and morals to young children. In 2020 during the coronavirus lock down of 2020, Anji, Takarazuka director Miki Akio, and Chugai Pharaceuticals put together a series of ten half-hour "voice dramas" starring former Takaraziennes on YouTube called Katarijenne. Katarijenne: The Happy Prince was the first, streamed June 1st and starring former Tsukigumi members Sena Jun, Ayano Kanami, Kiriya Hiromu, and Yumesaki Nene.
