Mei Yasumura is Misuzu's ganguro daughter, who hates her father for being a crossdresser, as it was the reason for her parents' divorce. Misuzu then managed to get the Fujiokas to keep an eye on her for a while, as she runs away from him. During her stay at the Fujioka's, Haruhi secretly prepares recipes for her with Misuzu's cooking, such as jam and demiglace sauce. Fortunately after some work by the Host Club, Mei managed to reconcile with Misuzu. She adores creating her own fashions and loves seeing her clothes on other girls. Yasumura is the surname of her stepfather (during the divorce, Mei's custody was awarded to her mother). She developed a crush on Tamaki, who secretly worked a part-time job in an attempt to reunite Mei and her father, and enlisted Haruhi's (reluctant) help on the matter. Later on she had suspected that Tamaki might be in love with Haruhi (and vice versa). She is in fact the first person to notice Haruhi's feelings towards Tamaki, but gets interrupted as she's about to ask her. Befriending Haruhi, later on she gives Haruhi love advice. She is the only non-Host Club member to appear on any volume cover in the manga series.
