"Honto no Jibun" (ホントのじぶん?, lit. True Self) is the title of the first single by the Hello! Project unit Buono!, featuring Airi Suzuki, Miyabi Natsuyaki, Momoko Tsugunaga as the main performers and Maimi Yajima and Chisato Okai as background characters in the song's Promotional Video.

It was first performed on August 22, 2007 at Odaiba's Palette Town and later on Cute's 'Hōkago no Essence' Fall Concert (September 30, 2007) and the 2007 Morning Musume Cultural Festival, on October 7 and October 8, 2007.

"Honto no Jibun" was released on October 31, 2007, in Japan under the Pony Canon label in two different versions, regular and limited, the latter of which included an additional DVD.

The single V version was released on November 21, 2007. It was used as the first ending theme for the Shugo Chara! anime.

The single was also the best-selling Hello! Project Kids single ever, until C-ute's Kimi wa Jitensha Watashi wa Densha de Kitaku in 2012, which was later beaten by the collaboration single between Berryz and C-ute, Chou HAPPY SONG.
