Please don't worry about it, MeiMei. You handle everything so flawlessly, ever since we were small, I've never been able to be much of assistance. It made me a bit lonely. That's why nothing would make me happier than to be of use to you.

Himeko to Mei Aihara, in Plus chapter 1.[1]

Himeko Momokino (桃木野 姫子 Momokino Himeko?) is the Student Council vice-president and She is Mei's best friend.


Himeko Full

Himeko's full appearance, in her school uniform.

Himeko is a teenage girl of short stature, with plum hair (black in the anime) is tied up in two short twin ringlets, magenta eyes (dark purple eyes in the anime) and her thick and bushy eyebrows, which are her most noticeable features. In school, she wears a neat uniform, yet outside of the academy she dresses in extravagant dresses and over-the-top outfits. She is rarely seen wearing anything casual.


Himeko has a rather stuck-up and stubborn personality, and despises people who don't follow the school regulations, the most common objects of her disapproval being Yuzu and Harumi. Despite taste for sticking to the rules, she seems to enjoy lolita fashion, as she is usually seen wearing that kind of fashion when not in school.[citation needed]

Himeko gets extremely jealous and over protective of Mei and absolutely abhors Yuzu's close relationship with Mei. It is popularly believed that Himeko harbors intense romantic feelings for Mei, and often emphasizes her relationship Mei by continuously referring to the fact that they were both childhood friends. Despite her seemingly possessive-like personality, she does have Mei's best interests at heart as she begrudgingly accepts Yuzu's attraction towards Mei, however, that does not stop her from frequently complaining about Yuzu's constant breaking of school rules.[citation needed] She's also scaredy, quickly clinging to Mei after hearing Suzuran's screech (although claiming to be protecting Mei).[3]
