Hanasaki Sumire (花咲菫) is an idol under Symphonata Productions and the leading character of all Admin Usagi's material. She is voiced by Itou Kanae (伊藤かな恵) in Japanese and Diana Kaarina in English. She is a member of the unit Prism Force and is it's leader.
The oldest idol and self-proclaimed leader of the idols of Symphonata Productions, Sumire strives to be number one at anything. Whether would that be an audition, competition or daily live charts, she cares nothing else than her name written next to "1". She may act self-centered, but she also cares for the people around her...well, in a vague way.
History and Background
Sumire was a popular idol back then and was at the peak of her career until a terrible incident that killed her family happened. She ended up being very depressed and made many failed attempts on killing herself. However, she ended up being "killed" in an accident instead. While at a coma-like state, she dreamt of a beautiful woman who told her that it's not yet her time to pass away and gave her a second-life and a permanent physique. In this second-life, she has to fulfill a mission she doesn't know about before she can grow to her original age's physique.
Sumire, despite being sixty-five, looks like a twelve year old girl. She has long purple hair worn in pig-tails held by ribbon or hair ornaments. Her short bangs frame her face, and she has turquoise eyes.
Sumire is a self-centered and materialistic female adult who is obsessed with being number one and cares a lot for money. Though being the oldest of her fellow idols, her physique and mental traits didn't mature along with it. She has a soft spot, which she rarely shows.
Hobbies and Skills
Sumire, as a veteran idol, is good at singing, dancing and has quite a good stamina. She enjoys gardening and money hunting in wishing wells.
Hanasaki (花咲): Hana (花) is the kanji for flower, a reference to her love for flowers while saki (咲) means to bloom, an action buds do when it's time for them to open up their petals.
Sumire (菫): Sumire (菫) means violets in Japanese. Violets are dark purple flowers that symbolizes truth. The bluish-purple color of the flower might refer to the cyalume colors on her Cyalume coords.
Yurika is Sumire's younger sister and play reverse roles, Yurika acting like the typical older sister and Sumire acting like the typical younger sister. Sumire would make Yurika do most of the housework and some of her idolwork while she "rests". Yurika would often scold her for her misbehaviors, which Sumire would take heed to listen (and forget it later). Nevertheless, Sumire cares about her younger sister. Yurika is the only member of her family to still be alive. Both of them are members of Prism Force.
Ichigo is Sumire's best friend. Sumire can keep up with Ichigo most of the time and are often paired by Usagi or President for idolwork. They share a leader-assistant relationships as Sumire is the leader of Prism Force and Ichigo is second in charge. They are also members of another project, Project Hoshizaki, together.
Mikan is Sumire's first friend in PriPara and her partner in the unit, Twilights*. During PriPara Idol Academy's older days, the two share a very close relationship but with the arrival of Ichigo and Layla, the two come to interact less and less. The two are still close friends.
Sumire and Klara have a "cat and dog" relationships and would argue with each other, even if at times they share ideas. However, they actually work well together.
Sumire and Haruka are both members of PriPara Idol Academy's student council. When they first met, both of them look forward in performing together (which Sumire still is, but it is unknown if Haruka still is). Sumire calls Haruka "prez", informal shortening of the word "president".
Sumire and Inori, at first, had a student-teacher relationship. After Inori figured out that Sumire was a top idol ahead of her, they become more comfortable with each other and now view each other as equal instead of the other being superior. As both leaders of respective groups, they will share their problems and how to overcome it with each other.
Sumire, as being Admin Usagi's main character, she has appeared in many MiTomo episodes, either being just there to update herself with happenings (aka "intaking gossips") or actually helping the characters.
In Episode 658, Sumire befriends Suiri Iwata. Later, they had a race and Sumire, loosing control of herself, crashed on a wall and was injured. Suiri and the other members of Prism Force brought her to a clinic. She has an event on that day but because of the injury she cannot perform. So, she lets Suiri take her place. Suiri was reluctant at first, but she and others encouraged her.
