Flower Girl (花束の少女 , Hanataba no Shoujo?) is an otherwise unnamed supporting character in the Macross 7 television series. The reason for the moniker is because she is often seen holding a bouquet of flowers, hoping to one day give it to her idol, Basara Nekki.
Personality & CharacterEdit
When not in Fire Bomber concerts or venues close to where the band members are, she is seen at the park picking flowers or listening to a Fire Bomber song on her portable radio. Towards the end of the series, she grows more and more determined to hand over her bouquet to Basara.
Post-Space War IEdit
After the devastation of Space War I left nearly the entire world in ashes, the slow, arduous reconstruction began. For some inexplicable reason, Flower Girl is present during this time period. (The Super Dimension Fortress Macross Inside Story～Macross Classic)
Flower Girl is undoubtedly Basara Nekki's biggest fan. She has attended nearly every live performance of Fire Bomber, from their humble gigs at the city park up to the posh banquet hall concert in the Riviera Resort Island, with the only exceptions being the media and industry executive-exclusive events. Off-hand, she did try to enter one such event but was promptly told off by security, much to her dismay.
Whenever she has the chance, the Flower Girl tries (in vain) to talk to Basara or give him a bouquet of flowers. When Fire Bomber announced they were opening "Fire Bomber Room (FBR)", the band's official homepage and chat room, Flower Girl quickly bought a computer terminal kit. After weeks of failing to access the page due to heavy traffic, she finally entered the chat room but failed to type her message in time and was logged out. Frustrated, Flower Girl realized that instead of trying to send Basara a heartfelt message, she will instead send song sung by her. She then attempts to hack the Fire Bomber site and successfully manages to send her song to the group. (Macross 7 CD Cinema 1: Mellow Heart Beat)
Following that, a ghost or spirit that lives inside a computer tries to influence Flower Girl to do its bidding. It then manipulates City 7's weather and power system, but thanks to the power of Basara's song, the threat is neutralized. (Macross 7 CD Cinema 2: Melodious Illusion) She also enjoys singing to herself various Fire Bomber songs. She moonlights as "DJ Girl" on the radio where she constantly plays Fire Bomber songs, which eventually annoys her audience. At one point, she joins a singing contest and sings "Totsugeki Love Heart". (Macross 7 Docking Festival) (Macross 7: Trash) (Macross Generation)
Though thwarted numerous times due to bad timing, other people talking to Basara first, her own lack of assertiveness and random people taking her bouquet, she eventually triumphs in the end after she threw her bouquet in the air for Basara to catch.
