  • Discussed: “Heartropea, how come I always see you with sunflowers?” “They reflect my cheerfulness.”
  • Conversed: "Heartropea looks really cute with those sunflowers."
  • Deconstructed: Heartropea’s true name is Himawari.note  She was named so because her big sister(s) died in infancy, and her mother wants her to be strong and cheerful. Well, she is, except that she's faking it because 1) she is actually a quiet girl, and 2) she only wants to make her mother happy. Except that her mother can't really get over her children's death, and thus rarely smiles. This in turn makes Himawari hates her name and Sunflowers in general. She regularly pulls out Sunflowers she grows herself and rips them to bits to vent her frustrations.
