Chiharu Shinonome (東雲 千春) is a 15-year-old student who just started attending Zashono Academy.
Chiharu is a cute girl with long red hair that has one strand of hair sticking up and red eyes. She wears the typical Zashono Academy uniform, which consists of a white undershirt, green sweater, yellow vest, purple skirt, black thigh-high, and yellow shoes.
Chiharu sometimes has her hair in different hairstyles, such as a ponytail or pigtails.
Chiharu is an innocent girl who has a romantic relationship with Densuke Mifune. They both like each other but are too embarrassed to show it.
She is the eldest of her 6 siblings; unlike most of the other members of her family, she is much more conserved. She gets embarrassed when males look at her, which she thinks they are staring at her chest, and tends to cover herself with an arm and shy away which tends to ironically make her admirers find her more appealing.

- The name "Chiharu" means "thousand" (千) ("chi") and and "spring" (春) ("haru").
- Part of the name "Chi" can also mean "wisdom, intellect" (智) or "scatter" (散).
- Part of the name "Haru" can also mean "light, sun, male" (陽) or "clear weather" (晴).
- Other possible writings, but not limited to, are "a thousand sunshine" (千陽), "spring of wisdom" (智春), "a thousand brightnesses", (千晴) and/or "a thousand blossoms" (千華).
- Chiharu's bust size grows rapidly through the manga and the anime from the original 88 cm to over 100 cm. It was said by Keiko Shinonome (Chiharu's mother) that her own bust was the same size as Chiharu's when she was that age. So it is possible that Chiharu may grow to, or surpass, her mother's size of 123.45 cm.
- In the OAV, Chiharu is voiced by Miwa Ohshiro in Japanese and Becky Chiang in English.
