In the Anime
Nozomu is a strong believer in Farilus and dreams of becoming a Fairilu researcher someday. He holds onto a book given by his grandmother known as the Picturebook of Fairilu. He uses this book frequently to study various Fairilu lore in the Fairilu universe and all of their species.
One day, he builds a Fairilu Door and a Key to try and meet a real Fairilu. His attempt initially fails though and Nozomu accidentally drops his key and loses sight of it. Unknown to him while searching for it, the door he tried to open is actually glowing. By the time he finds out the door is glowing, and he hurriedly takes a look through it. There, he finds the unborn Lip struggling to get the door open. Nozomu tries to cheer her on to get the door open. This helped her regain her confidence and she was able to pass through the door and become born. Nozomu was excited to seen an actual Fairilu.
From that point on, Nozomu continues to study the various Fairilu lore, all while hoping he'll might meet another Fairilu again. At one point, he met a girl who noticed he had a Fairilu book. They sat down and looked at his book until a drawing of a tulip fairy fell to the ground, which he let her keep. When she told him that she believes in Fairilu, he was happy and said that he had never met someone who believes in them. He told her that his dream was to become a Fairilu researcher and create his own Fairilu guide. He took a picture of the girl with his Fairilu Camera and developed an interest in her. When a cat suddenly attacked, Nozomu saved her, but she disappeared, and he wonders where she went.
He later discovers that the girl, Yumiri was actually Lip.
Nozomu means "wish". Hanamura is a Japanese surname, and it is likely the character was named this because hana means "flower".
