Satsuki Hanabusa (花房五月 Hanabusa Satsuki) is one of the three main male leads in the show Yumeiro Patissiere. His dream is to work together with his mother, an artist in Ikebana, or flower arranging; who is also a teacher at St. Marie Academy for the high school students.
Due to his good looks and flirtatious personality he is labeled as one of three "Sweets Princes" along with two of the other male leads, Sennosuke Andou and Makoto Kashino. Hanabusa is in Group A of his Second Year Middle School class consisting of the other two "Sweets Princes" and Ichigo Amano. Hanabusa specializes in candy sculptures and flower-based cakes. His Sweets Spirit is Cafe who also has his gentleman persona.
His father was a horticulturist that specialized in roses. His father died in a car accident several years before the story took place. The bottle of rose water that Hanabusa keeps is a memento of his father. Ever since his father died, Hanabusa felt that he should be kind to his mother and women. As a result, he loves all beautiful things, and is nice to every girl, bordering on perpetual flirt. He also seems to be a narcissist. It is stated in the anime that he was born in the month of October, however, 'Satsuki' means the fifth month, or May. According to the drama tracks, he has a habit of taking rose baths, singing in the bath and never cleans up the petals, angering Kashino. In Season 2, episode 11, he admits that he did have feelings for Ichigo and says to Kashino that if he gets dumped by Ichigo, he will "attack" for real.
He had a main roll in the first season of Yumeiro Patissiere.
Yumeiro Patissiere Professional
In Yumeiro Patissiere Professional, Hanabusa hardly showed up. In the first episode, he turned in a Leave of Absence form to St. Marie Academy. He hadn't mentioned it to Ichigo when they were studying in Paris together as Team Ichigo. So, it came as a surprise to her. He said that he would be working on joining his mother's house of flower arrangement to become a coordinator of clothes, food, and interior.
He reappears in the final three episodes to help Ichigo and Kashino in their contest.
Even though Hanabusa is more of a flirtatious type it is shown in Ichigo's first encounter with the three that he is giving her a bouquet of candy flowers. Although Andou gives her a treat too, it is hinted that Hanabusa's intentions were tilting towards more of an intimate display of affection. It is also shown in an episode that he kisses her cheek (as shown in the picture), but unfortunately, Ichigo is too dense to think of it as anything but a friendly action. In Season 2, episode 11, he admits that he did have feelings for Ichigo and says to Kashino that if he gets dumped by Ichigo, he will "attack" for real. Meaning that he will work his hardest to steal her away from him as fast as possible.
