Riri as seen from an episode
|Initial Year||Graduate by One Year (Hidamari Sketch)|
|Voice Actor||Ryoko Shiraishi|
Riri (リリ) is a former tenant of Room 101 of Hidamari Apartments. She is calm and reserved, in stark contrast with the eccentric prankster Misato. After graduating from the Yamabuki High School art department, she advanced to art college.
Riri has a pale blue color for her straight hair and eyes.
Although she is seen doodling in an episode of the anime, Riri's gift with art was never explicitly stated; however, her dream is to go to Florence, Italy to experience the Renaissance through its artwork and architecture and attend an opera at La Scala. However, such a trip is out of her reach financially.
Riri is the foil to Misato in terms of social interaction, maintaining a collected and gentle demeanor whenever conversing or doing chores like sweeping. She was already studying for art college exams by the time Sae and Hiro moved in and became her friends. They still keep in contact by exchanging text messages once in a while. Hiro looks up to her for her maturity.
- She only appears and is named in the anime, but her existence is alluded to in the manga.
