"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). She is 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 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's hair is relatively short, as well as wavy. It is a turquoise colour, and she has bangs that she either sweeps to the side elegantly, or lets them hang down normally. She has a fuller figure than most 00 members, and is moderately tall. She has silver eyes, which have both heart and spade lining in them. There is also heart-shaped lining in her hair.

Haruka has a good eye for fashion, and is, as such, consistently well-dressed. She doesn't care much for fashion whims, but follows the trends she likes pretty avidly through the use of magazines and social media.

There is no apparent visual cue to whenever Paruru is in public or not, but her expressions tend to, in general, be colder and seem to carry a hidden meaning behind them a lot of the time. Whether or not this is true, or merely an act, depends on the situation, and is usually very hard to descipher.


A lot of members would describe Haruka as sweet. She is caring, and does keep an eye out for others, just in case. She is always willing to lend an ear, a shoulder, or anything in general to her fellow members, should they need it, even if they aren't close to her. She goes out of her way to make sure the people around her are comfortable - sometimes even to the levels of herself becoming uncomfortable.

Haruka is also one of the members with the most noticeable difference in her offstage and onstage persona. Her onstage persona has jokingly been dubbed her Hime!Mode or Hime!Paru by other members and fans. She is the product of a nervous tick that appears whenever she is in public. This also applies for if she happens to be filmed or similar. As the name implies, she turns into a Himedere at the slightest moment of being in the public. She becomes arrogant, blunt, and snobby. Some members have started to use her as a "hidden camera detector". As a result, whenever Dokkiri are planned, Paruru's schedule conveniently clashes with filming. This persona of hers first started developing when Paruru became a member of 00, and she does consistently feel bad about how she treats others when onstage, and does tend to apologize at earliest opportunity for it.

Paruru also likes to "people-watch", as it does help improve her own acting ability, as well as help her learn more about the people around her. She doesn't focus on anyone in particular when she does it, though, as she does have certain respect for others' personal space, and respect for their wishes in general (as long as she's not forced into conversation, that is).

Generally, she believes that people deserve respect, something that is shown in the fact that she does genuinely make an effort to remember names instantly, but that doesn't mean that people can't lose that respect from her. An example are DES soldiers in general, who never were able to stand the living quality on Saharastar where Paruru grew up.


Haruka's biggest forte is her acting ability. She thuroughly enjoys taking up other characters for a while, and it is also something she takes very seriously. She is constanly thinking about ways to improve, and one method she has really settled into, is people-watching. She loves to watch the people around them, and actively try to notice the small things about them in order to maybe be able to incorporate them into her characters.

She is also very skilled at reading people; a result of her people-watching, Paruru is usually able to guess someone's general feelings and/or thoughts based on their body language, small gestures or differences in speech patterns.

Haruka is a feared opponent in anything where things being thrown is involved, regardless of if it is pillow fights, Muchaburi dodgeball, water balloon fights or an actual fights with DES (due to her personalized weaponry) or anything else. Her aim with a dodgeball is practically impeccable, and this is something she utilizes to the full extent whenever she can.


Haruka was born and grew up on Saharastar, and was orphaned at a young age. She doesn't know who her real parents are, or even if they're still alive, but Paruru doesn't in general care. She was raised by her adoptive brother, Kimura Shouta, whom she also has her family name from. The siblings are extremely close, and Shouta is very supportive of whatever Paruru sets her mind to. He was the first person to cheer her on when she had applied for the auditions.

Paruru's disdain for DES soldiers started at a young age. Not because of anything personal, but rather because the only thing she ever saw them do was complain about the climate on Saharastar, and usually did whatever they could to get off of the planet as soon as possible.

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.
