"Thanks to everyone who voted for me. But please spare me... I can't take this. I'll stick to my job."

— Sanbica Norton in "Spy"

Sanbica Norton (サンビカ=ノートン, Sanbika Nōton) is a Single-Star Virus Hunter and the lead doctor in the Hunter Association.[1]

Appearance Edit

Little is known of Sanbica's appearance, as she is always seen wearing a very concealing medical gown, including gloves and a surgical mask. She seems to be short of stature, with big, dark eyes.[1]


Sanbica is timid and insecure, to the point she stammers when speaking. Although she did not wish to become chairman, due to her hating being in the spotlight, she still thanked her supporters for their votes.[2] It is very likely that, despite her lack of self-confidence, she is excellent in her field of competence.

When the Black Whale finally departs, Sanbica attends a meeting with Gel, Cluck, Ginta, Tokarine, and another Hunter.[8]

Abilities & PowersEdit

As a Single Star Virus Hunter, Sanbica is extremely competent in the medicine. Her knowledge apparently spreads to poisons as well as diseases, as one of the Zodiacs, the Poison Hunter Gel, enlisted her to help write a manual in preparation for the voyage to the Dark Continent.[7] As a pro Hunter, Sanbica knows how to use Nen.


  • "Sanbika", when written with the kanji 賛美歌, means "hymn, psalm, hymnal, hymnbook".
  • Her last name, Norton, may be a reference to the well-known antivirus software program Norton AntiVirus.
