|Occupation||High School Student (1st year, Class 7)|
Ruri Hibarigaoka (雲雀丘 瑠璃 Hibarigaoka Ruri ), also known as Hibari (ヒバリ) is the main protagonist of the Anne Happy♪ series. She enrolled in Tennomifune Academy and attempts to come to terms with her misfortune of "Tragic Love".
Ruri has a fair complexion and sharp green eyes with very long, dull indigo hair with a purple gradient that reaches her hips with her chest-length forelocks brushed over her mostly straight cut bangs. She wears a silver clip in her hair.
She wears the Tennomifune Academy uniform with a pair of white stockings and black Mary-Jane shoes.
Generally calm and collected, Ruri seems to find herself to be the only person with common sense and maturity at times. However, she can show herself to be just as strange- mainly when it comes to her fixation and romantic feelings with a construction sign.
Despite this, she is very calm and kind, and speaks politely towards others. She has a tendency to keep her feelings to herself though, and can become flustered with affection. She also blushes very often, especially when in comes to the construction sign or love. However, after becoming friends with Hanako and Botan she soon starts opening herself and coming to terms with her feelings.
Upset at being separated from her love, Ruri ran across Anne, who was hanging from a bridge while holding a dog. Ruri attempted to help Anne when she asked her name, only to decide to nickname her Hibari, just as her shirt fabric tore and sent her plummeting into the water. After checking to make sure she was okay, Ruri got to know Anne, eventually nicknaming her Hanako in return. They become friends and ended up going to the same school and class, where Ruri also got to know Botan.
Since she has been in love with a construction sign, people have always teased her about this when they found out about it, especially in middle school. However, Ruri's love did not falter and she still loves the sign and claims that it is someone important to her. It was revealed that she fell in love with the sign at first glance after she walked home from grade school, where she at first didn't think any special about it at first, but soon came to appreciate the fact it stayed quiet and said nothing back to her.
Her hobby is cooking, and she cooks everyday.
Despite their contrasting personalities, the girls are close friends. Ruri finds Anne to have an infectious happiness and realizes being around her makes her feel cheerful, while Anne likes to see Ruri smile more. Ruri's friendship with Anne was solified after Anne found the picture Ruri carried around of the construction sign and Anne promised not to make fun of her or tell anyone about it. They trust each other entirely.
Botan is one of Ruri's first friends upon entering high school. She finds Botan to be weird and like Anne, but she does treasure her as a good friend. Botan also didn't mock her feelings, and Ruri has began to trust her as well. Ruri constantly helps Botan when she gets injured.
