Honma Himawari (本間ひまわり) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber and a member of NIJISANJI. She debuted as a second batch member of now-dissolved group, NIJISANJI Gamers, along with Sasaki Saku and Yamiyono Moruru.
A high school sophomore who loves games and cats.
Himawari is bright, cheerful, and full of energy. She loves to have fun and always has a bright outlook and loves being a VTuber. Before becoming a VTuber however, she seemed to have serious self-esteem issues and trouble at school, leading to her missing a semester. Himawari admitted that becoming a VTuber turned her life around and that meeting everyone in NIJISANJI was one of the best things that ever happened to her and encourages people not to give up.
Himawari is part of the group known as the どくずほんしゃ(Dokuzuhonsha) with Kuzuha, Dola and Yashiro Kizuku, which roleplays as a family during collab streams with her being the elder sister. However, even outside the Dokuzuhonsha collab streams, Himawari is very close to Dola, often staying at her house and doing streams of just the two of them talking or playing games. Dola even lent her some of her pajamas when Himawari stayed overnight. She's also very close to Yashiro as well, who she refers to as 'Papa' and who helps her study.
Honma Himawari is famously air-headed and 'lacking in certain academic fields' (to put it kindly). In her earlier streams she would point at the screen, forgetting her audience couldn't actually see her, answered the door in nothing but a towel once, and thought the sun and the moon were the same thing (something that one of the COO's of the company that manages the NIJISANJI project, Iwanaga, commented on).
Her Twitter account was opened on 25 June 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 2 July although she did not start her activities on YouTube until her first stream which was live on 11 July 2018.
On 4 April, she announced that she would get her 3D model.
On 25 April, Himawari debuted her 3D model during a stream.
On 28 August, Himawari was tested positive for COVID-19. This was followed up by a video upload the following day where she announced that she had to recuperate at home.
On 9 September, Himawari returned to streaming after recovering from COVID-19.
