|Anime||Boruto Episode #1|
Sumire is a rather meek and quiet girl who, like many children her age, adores the Seventh Hokage. While not very outspoken, she shows genuine concern for her classmates. Sumire is also very respectful and dutiful, and wishes to avoid conflict if necessary.
Sumire is a young girl with purple-coloured eyes and hair, the back of which is tied into two long braided ponytails. Her hair frames her face and her bangs hang just above her eyes. She dons a black t-shirt, with a violet dress over it that has a white collar on it, knotted by a purple ribbon, almost resembling a seifuku overall with long black stockings.
On the day of the entrance ceremony, as everyone began looking for an absent Boruto, he suddenly appeared, crashing a train into the Hokage Monument, which left Sumire amazed at Boruto's antics. Shikamaru then had everyone clear out to begin clean-up. Two weeks later, after Boruto's suspension ended and he finally joined the class, he quickly began making another spectacle of himself, amazing Sumire by his consistent nature to stand out. Chōchō Akimichi however noted that it was only because he keeps getting into trouble. Sumire tried to settle things down when Inojin Yamanaka began speaking out. Later, Boruto got into a confrontation with the class' top student Iwabee Yuino. As two students began arguing about what it means to be shinobi, they decided to skip class to settle things in fight. Despite her concern about class, Sumire joined the rest of the class to watch the fight in a training arena. During the fight, Sumire noted that Boruto really seems to be striving to make a name for himself outside his relationship to the Seventh Hokage. Ultimately, Boruto and Inojin's respective words resonated with Iwabee, ending the fight. Despite the pleasant ending, Sumire and the rest of the class were fiercely scolded later by sensei Anko Mitarashi for skipping class. The following day, Sumire is relieved to see Boruto getting along better with everyone. Chōchō teases Sumire about her concern for Boruto, to which an embarrassed Sumire insists it is purely from her status as class rep.
Weeks later, as class started learning shurikenjutsu, Sumire was upset that her own performance wasn't showing much progress. Eventually, Boruto Uzumaki's reckless fun with a fūma shuriken caused some property damage. Their teacher Shino Aburame decided to have Boruto, along with a bunch of other students help with repairs to the Hokage Rock, although he insisted that Sumire's part would mainly be supervision. Later, as the group neared completing their work, an anxious Metal Lee got too worked up and caused more damage. Afterwards, realising that Lee suffered from social anxiety, Shikadai commented on it, insisting that he get over it. As Lee walked away shamed, Sumire felt bad for him, noting that he easily works harder than anyone else in their class.
- Sumire's name means violet, fitting her colour scheme.
