Haruka Hasebe (
Haruka is a teenage girl who is considered to be highly attractive by her classmates with waist-length blue hair that has bangs going on either side, orange eyes with a mole visible beneath her left eye, a well-endowed body and an average height.
She is mostly seen wearing the school's uniform, with the difference that she has the upper button of her shirt undone and her tie relatively loosened.
Haruka is a pretty normal person, but she is not very open to other people as shown when she didn't participate in the class's swimming session where she tends to prefer keeping to herself and not bothering people, simply to avoid trouble.
In the light novels, she is shown to be overly-conscious and uncomfortable with several boys giving her attention, due to her large bust. As a result, she tries to avoid flirty boys.
She speaks quite a lot but only with people that she is comfortable with such as those in the Ayanokōji Group. She also has a habit of nicknaming her friends, such as giving Kiyotaka Ayanokōji the nickname "Kiyopon" or "Ayanon" because they sounded cute, showing that she enjoys teasing others a lot.
Haruka is first seen at D-Class's swimming sessions, she does not participate though as she sits in the bleachers as the rest of the class enjoy themselves.
Afterwards, she is mostly seen in the class doing her assignments or doing nothing.
She takes part in the survival test, where she is one of the girls, who want the boys to be separated from the girls after Kei Karuizawa's underwear was stolen.
Haruka revealed in her short story that she has never experienced love before, but when it comes to unrequited infatuation, she did once with an upperclassman back in her middle school. Her interest is mainly rooted in the physical prowess and athletism of a guy - to which she would dub, "the ideal guy". Amidst such circumstances, she never had the chance to make sure that what she felt would truly evolve into passionate and find genuine love. Days passed by and even after her crush graduated from their school, she never did anything to rectify her ambiguous feelings.
Unbeknownst to her, she would also meet a similar yet more engaging type of man than her former puppy love in her high school. Out of the male students in her class, surely, there are many possible options, Yōsuke Hirata - a full-spec D-Class leader who is supposed to be drafted into A-Class, Teruhiko Yukimura - a highly capable in academics and intelligent guy, or Akito Miyake - a physically fit person that is a member of Archery Club. However, none of them caught her interest but the mysterious guy, Kiyotaka Ayanokōji. This is due right after he showed his capabilities in the relay contest of the sports festival. Haruka displayed her interest with him by insisting to call him as "Ayanon" and in a first-name based nickname "Kiyopon" because they sounded cute. This is even before they got closer at their common study group, Ayanokōji Group. Even though its left unsaid, Haruka truly considers Kiyotaka as her ideal guy since he fit what she desired in a boy.
To ensure she would not make the same mistake and experience the same regret as she did back in middle school, she spent more time with Kiyotaka to test out her feelings — to make sure that she considers Kiyotaka as an ordinary guy and that her initial assessment is a fluke. This denial, though stems from knowing that her friend, Airi, is intensely vying for Kiyotaka's affection. Being a considerate girl, she instead gave way and proceeded in supporting the former in her endeavor — putting her own feelings away — isolated in the midst and for the sake of friendship.
Academic Abilities Edit
Haruka is excellent at Science and tends to get relatively high scores in Math as well. However, she is quite bad at subjects such as World History and Language, but she has the capability to study hard in these subjects so she does not fail.
Her academic abilities are very similar to Akito Miyake (Haruka's friend), to the point that Kiyotaka Ayanokōji stated their answers were so similar some might think only one person had taken both of their exams .
- The name Haruka means "wave" (波) (ha), "precious stone, gem" (瑠) (ru) and "add, increase" (加) (ka).
- Haruka's surname Hasebe means "long" (長) (ha), "valley" (谷) (se) and "department" (部) (be).
- Haruka enjoys spicy foods.
- Since D-Class is for those with defective traits, Haruka's defect is her nervousness around strangers.
- She shares this weakness with Airi Sakura.
