"I am Team B's Shimazaki Haruka the 11th."

– Haruka's Stage Introduction Catchphrase

Mei Kimura ( 木村 きむら めい) is a member of Team B. She is currently a successor, holding the name of Shimazaki Haruka the 11th (11 代目 だいめ 島崎 しまざき 遥香 はるか ). Currently, her most notable nickname is Paruru (ぱるる). Prior to succession, she was (and is still, to a degree) commonly recognized to be the arrogant Hime character of AKB0048, and this is what spawned the nickname Mei-sama (めい さま ), however, she was also referred to as Mei-chan (めいちゃん), and KimuMei (きむめい). To the general public, she is known to be very arrogant and borderline selfish, although anyone who has gotten to know the real her can agree that she is actually really kind.


Haruka as relatively short, wavy hair. She has bangs that are usually let down, or swept to the side elegantly. She has a fuller figure, and is also moderately tall. Her eyes are silver, and have heart-lining in them. There is also a spade lining in her eyes. Her hair does also have heart linings in it.

She has a good fashion sense, and can easily tell what will be "in" and what won't in a few weeks. Considering this, she has a stylish and sophisticated clothing-style.


While Haruka's onstage character is very much like a snobby princess, she is really a big sweetheart. She does always her best to remember names, even if she has troubles with siblings. She always wants to make sure that everyone is comfortable - even going as far as making herself uncomfortable in the process. She is completely horrible at telling jokes, and at times, that is what brings laughs.

Haruka's onstage character, however, is the complete opposite of her normal behaviour. Haruka gets nervous easily, which results in a  nervous tick that causes her to turn into what some members call her "Hime-mode". She becomes snobby and superior, and does at times act like no-one else is in the room, because "she is above everyone else". She also gets a bit selfish, and spoilt. When she first started developing these traits, and she did actually feel really bad about how she treated others when she was onstage and in character. 


Haruka is a skilled actress, being able to slip into characters seemingly effortlessly, and this is something she also actively works to improve. She is also quite good at modeling. Both her dancing and singing are average.

Haruka is a feared opponent in anything when stuff being thrown is involved, be pillow fights, Muchaburi Dodgeball, Water balloon fights or any other activity. Her aim with a dodgeball is almost impeccable. 


Being born on Saharastar, Haruka is used to hot temperatures, and has a natural high resistance against sunburns. She does, however, feel a bit uncomfortable wearing a swimsuit, because most planets have a colder climate than Saharastar and she does easily get cold when she isn't wearing a lot of clothes.

Haruka lived with her older brother, Kimura Shouta, all her life. He has taken care of her since she was three, and she doesn't know who her real parents are. She doesn't care either. Shouta was always very supportive of Mei's dreams, and was the first one to cheer her on when she said that she had applied for the auditions.

Encountering AKB0048Edit

Haruka encountered 00 when she was 5, and AKB0048 came and held a concert on Saharastar. Haruka wasn't very keen on joining them at that age, but her dream eventually grew on her, and she decided that she wanted to join. Her brother wasn't entirely happy about it initially, but seeing how much Haruka wanted to do it, he agreed and cheered her on.
