This article is about a character in Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni.


"'Tee hee hee~.'"
— Higanbana's noticeable laughter

Higanbana (彼岸花) is one of the main characters of the story. She is The Third Ranked School Youkai and is referred to as "The Dancing Higanbana."

Personality & Background[edit | edit source]

Higanbana has straight black hair and red eyes. Her bang is short. On the top of her hair, she has a red and white striped bow.  

Higanbana seems to have a twisted personality, often aiming to scare others or instigate conflict. However, below the surface she may not actually be a bad person. She also seems to take great pride in the rumor concerning her doll vessel in the infirmary and will often mention it to others, seeming disappointed if they don't know of it. 

She is also know to be "exceptionally cruel."

Depending on what chapter you are reading, Higanbana's role will change. If she's targeting a bullied victim, she will be the anti-hero. However, is she's targeting a bully, she will be the villain.

She is usually quite lonely, since very few people come to visit her in the infirmary.

Despite being the subject of a frightening ghost story, and being particularly notorious among the students, she's actually quite slobbish. Lying around on the infirmary bed and wtaching late night anime is part of her nightly routine.

Quite different from the unnerving image of a doll dancing the night away that the children know her for.
