– Hanamaru Kunikida
Hanamaru Kunikida (国木田花丸 Kunikida Hanamaru) is one of the nine main characters of Love Live! Sunshine!!, and a first year student of Uranohoshi Girls' High School. She was born on March 4. She is voiced by Kanako Takatsuki
Hanamaru has fawn medium hair and amber eyes.
Hanamaru (or 'Maru') is a hardworking girl who diligently works at her family's temple. She spends a lot of time reading alone and is easily distracted. Because of how she was raised as a temple girl, she doesn't watch the television much nor does she use the internet, making her outdated. She is often teased due to this, but is usually defended by her best friend, Ruby. However, Ruby ends up crying first, causing Hanamaru to comfort her instead.
She seems to be quite self-depreciating, calling herself a 'chibi procrastinator' and 'neither cute nor interesting'. She aspires to be like Ruby, whom she sees as 'beautiful, cute, and dazzling'. She became a school idol in order to support Ruby in her endeavor, even though she didn't know anything about idols.
She has a distinctive verbal tic and dialect, ending all of her sentences with "zura", as well as using "ora" as a first-person pronoun to refer to herself.
Her family runs a local temple that has been passed down for generations.
She is Ruby Kurosawa's best friend.
