| Himawari Furutani|
Himawari Furutani (古谷 向日葵 Furutani Himawari ) is a Yuru Yuri character.
Himawari is a mature and delicate girl, often having lady-like behavior and mannerisms. She has a rather formal speech and is willing to help people in need.
Around Sakurako, her personality changes drastically into a bitter, mistrusting one. She is used to the latter's antics, and usually ends up berating her with varying degrees of violence and bitterness. She does tend to show a lot of care and concern about her, often assisting her to do homework or generally hanging out with her, proving they do get along despite the constant bickering. Their relationship used to be much closer during their childhood, enough so Nadeshiko decides to set up a make-believe wedding for the two.
While she is mostly a good student, Himawari is far from being sporty. Her poor performances cause her to worry about any upcoming PE tests, which causes Sakurako to tease her, since unlike Himawari, she excels in that domain.
She's very concerned about her weight and body shape in general, so much that when she finds out she put on some weight, she decides to go on a diet, hardly eating anything for 3 days straight. But she's stopped by Sakurako who states she's making Kaede worry a lot, and that they both think her appearance didn't budge a single bit. Further research reveals the added weight comes from her breasts having grown in size, which as a running gag, she's very complexed about.
