Hana-Kimi, known in Japan as Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (“For You in Full Blossom”) is a shōjo manga series written by Hisaya Nakajo.
Hana-Kimi centers on Mizuki Ashiya, a Japanese girl who lives in the United States. One day, she sees a track and field competition on TV, and becomes attracted to one of the competitors, Izumi Sano, competing in the high jump. She begins to idolize the young athlete and eventually transfers to Japan to attend the same school that Sano attends. There is a catch, however—Sano attends an all-boys high school, named Osaka Gakuen, and Mizuki must disguise herself as a boy to enter. The majority of the series happens during Mizuki’s second year at Osaka (from Volume 4 onwards), although her first year was significant for her being able to remain in Osaka.
Mizuki Ashiya (Horikita Maki)
Main character of this manga. She pretends to be a boy in order to attend the school that Sano attends. She loves sweet foods and she’s a very fast runner. Mizuki falls in love with Sano, but is unable to tell him because she thinks that he doesn’t know that she’s a girl. But what she doesn’t know is that he does know that she’s a girl and he’s in love with her as well.
Izumi Sano (Oguri Shun)
The guy that Mizuki Ashiya likes. He is an excellent high jumper. He finds out that Mizuki is a girl, but does not tell anyone else and actually becomes very protective of her secret. Before Mizuki went to Osaka Gakuen, Sano had been in an accident (he save ashiya from robber that why he got an injury), causing him to quit high jumping for a while because he thought that he couldn’t handle the pressure. But thanks to Mizuki’s determination he is able to try and was given a second chance to high jump. Sano falls in love with Mizuki, but cannot tell her because Mizuki thinks that if Sano found out her secret, she would have to leave. He eventually is able to tell her and even proposes to her in the special chapter.
Shuichi Nakatsu (Ikuta Toma)
He likes Mizuki, but doesn’t know that she is really a girl, and some of his classmate believe that he is gay due to that fact. Nakatsu also seems to have come to terms with that fact. As Umeda says,”...he’s only attracted to her feminine side,” meaning that Nakatsu is responding as any teenage male would to being around a female, although it would appear he is a bit more excitable than his classmates as none of them seem to be affected by Mizuki—or they simply hide it better. He entered the school with a football (soccer) scholarship, and is very good at it. Originally from Osaka (the city, which is different from the school and spelled with different kanji), he has a thick Kansai accent and frequently uses the Kansai dialect. he make cute expressions and became ashiya's best friend in school.
