Sawawa Hiyorimi (日和見紗和々, Hiyorimi Sawawa), is a fictional supporting character of the Princess Resurrection series. She is the 18-year old live-in maid at Hime's mansion; she is also Hiro's older sister. Her cooking is recognized by Hime as the best.
She is stated to have died from the bomb explosion that threw Hime into the future. In the anime, her surname is also Hiyorimi as she introduced herself to Hime. In the manga, there is not much shown of her, but she appeared more in the anime where she is often shown eating strawberry parfaits at the café. A running gag in the anime involves her sitting up in shock whenever Hiro sustains an injury that would be lethal under ordinary circumstances, suddenly think of something minor like noticing a new menu item (and never thinking of anything violent or scary in nature,) only to calm down and go back to eating her parfait. She usually addresses Hime as "Mistress/Miss" (Oujo-Sama).

Appearance & Biography
Hiro's sister, who is a maid employed by Hime. Hiro sometimes appears troubled that his sister is so dense but in truth it is rather convenient because he could never make up excuses that would explain everything without mentioning the supernatural. Sawawa is also known for having unusually large breasts.
Her age is unknown but it's somewhere between senior year high school and maybe second year of university if she attended. Always dresses in a maid outfit even when going out, has natural, large bouncy breasts (D cup?) and an extremely easygoing kind nature who accepts everybody and looks at the good in people. For example, not batting an eye when Riza freeloads despite her rough nature or inviting a vampire into the house courteously even though it was a stranger.
Sawawa is a young and is seen to be very woman who has long dark brown hair, dark blue eyes. For attire, she wears a white maid hat, a black dress, a white apprain with a red bow tie, high thigh socks, and black shoes. She is very well known for having her unusually and abnormally huge and large bouncy breasts (D cup?).
Sawawa is so beautiful that she gets a lot of men's attention, but most men just like her mostly because of the sizes of her breast, but Sawawa is very clueless of men's attraction towards her. In the third OVA while the female cast are in the hot springs Riza humorously compared Sawawa with Sylvia as to who has the bigger bust (and failed).

Manga and OVA
Sawawa's a very sweet and caring young woman, she also cares a lot for Hiro and is hard working as a maid for the mansion. She also makes sweets to offer to Nakua as an offering later on when her shrine was built. She is seemingly oblivious to the supernatural aspects of Hime, nor does she seem to understand Hiro's explanation of his immortality. Hiro sometimes appears troubled that his sister is so dense but in truth it is rather convenient because he could never make up excuses that are convincing enough to deter her if she was suspicious of him at all. She lives a normal life in spite of all the supernatural phenomena happening around her, and is completely oblivious to it.
Sawawa is ditsy, friendly, caring, motherly, loving, clueless, cheerful, respectful, childish, joyful, likable, and affectionate. Sawawa is so ditsy and clueless that she has no knowledge or understanding of the Master's romantic feelings for her and of other men.
Hiro is Sawawa's younger brother. Since their parents died, Hiro and Sawawa have lived apart, moving from relative to relative. Once Sawawa got a job as a maid, she sent Hiro a postcard asking him to live with her in Hime's mansion. Hiro accepts the offer and goes to Sasanaki. During all the supernatural happenings, Hiro always tries to keep the Monster Kingdom a secret from Sawawa, and does a superb job ;though his excuses are often poorly-said and/or hard to believe. They have a pretty good relationship overall, as Sawawa always acts kindly towards Hiro, and constantly reminds him not to bother people.
She serves under Hime, who greatly enjoys her cooking. Sawawa's food and tea tastes wonderful, according to Hime herself. Sawawa addresses her as 'Mistress'.
Master (Dandy Cafe Owner)
Due to Sawawa's near-obsession with parfaits, she ends up spending a lot of time with the man running the Ice Cream Parlor. He begins to have feelings for her, and tries a few times to tell this to her. For more of a comedic purpose, Sawawa always either naively misunderstands his proposals for something else, or just falls asleep in front of him (much to his dismay).

Anime and Manga Differences
Translation and Dub Issues
- Sawawa's voice actress, Yuko Minaguchi, is well-known for her roles as Videl (and her daughter Pan) in the Dragonball series, Yawara Inokuma in YAWARA!, Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn in Sailor Moon, and Momiji in KOEI Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden series.
- Sawawa looks relatively younger in the manga than she does in the anime. Also, the anime Sawawa seems "rounder" than her manga version.
- In Chapter 48 of the manga, Sawawa, under Sylvia's mind-control magic, chops a gash in a door with an axe and then proceeds to peek through the opening. This is probably a direct reference to Jack Nicholson's "Here's Johnny!" scene from the movie The Shining.
