Akihiko Narimura (成村章彦, Narimura Akihiko) was a boy who wanted to pick up bellflowers for his sick mother.
Akihiko lived with his family; his father and his mother. But one day, his mother became very sick. She moved out from the house and was admitted to a hospital. Akihiko and his father started living alone. Akihiko, wanting to help his mother, went to the mountain and tried to pick bellflowers for her. However, he fell from the mountain and died in the field of bellflowers. After he died, the bellflowers gave Akihiko half-life for his desire, which was that he wanted to give bellflowers to his mother and meet her for the last time.
Akihiko was back to the house again with pure white hair (He first had slightly brown hair).
Akihiko is first seen sitting alone in the classroom. He doesn't eat anything except for water and doesn't talk much either with his friends at school or his father. His only friend is Shinobu. Shino transfers to the same Elementary School as Akihiko.The vines try to protect or cover Akihiko when he is in the danger and try to get him back (which they call Akihiko flower).
Later, his mother came back home and saw Akihiko with white hair.Unknown to his father, Akihiko's mother is already aware that Akihiko has died. After Akihiko met his mother and gave bellflowers to her, his wish is fullfilled. Thus, his physical body is no more and he is able to be at rest.
He was Akihiko's best friend.
Akihiko loved his mother dearly but hated her coughing. He wanted her to get better by picking bellflowers for her.
- In the anime adaptation, Akihiko's surname was pronounced as なるむら (Narumura), instead of なりむら (Narimura), like in the manga.
