Jiro Asagiri is the overarching secondary antagonist of the manga/anime, Magical Girl Site. He is the adopted father of Aya Asagiri and the abusive father of Kaname Asagiri. In the series, he pressures Kaname into studying in order to take him to Tokyo University. If he doesn't succeed, Jiro will hit him as a disappointment. He is the source of Kaname's sadistic complex nature who uses Aya as a stress relief to get away from him and also led Aya to discover the Magical Girl Site and become a Magical Girl.

Jiro talking to Kaname
"I have high expectations of you. Don't let me down."

Why He Has No "High" Expectations

  1. The main problem with Jiro is that he is a strictly abusive parent who pushes to his son, Kaname to study harder in order to live up to his "high expectations" for his grades at school and be accepted to Tokyo University.
    • But, however, Jiro punches and hits him if he doesn't study perfectly.
      1. Thus, His abuse is also the source of his son’s sadistic complex nature, leading Kaname to verbally abuse his sister, Aya as a stress relief for the fun of it, forced to not getting any friends, while considering the humans are "scums" and being a "waste of time", and with God as his "savior".
      2. Since that, his reveal as a generic domestic abuser was obvious considering how it was his fault for having Kaname commit the crimes that he had done like Kaname using Nijimi's panties to command everyone at will and then steal magic sticks.
        1. While he and his wife cared for and loved their children, they barely interact with their children in an average normal way (like especially when her daughter and Yatsumura were eating with his wife). Even if their son Kaname, whom his father abuses him and pushes him to study, is not doing anything wrong with things such as Aya.
      3. He is likely an excuse for college students to mainly fail and parents to pushed their children as hard as they can for their education.
  2. We barely know much about him or his intention of beating up his son for his education until later chapters.
  3. Even for his son (Kaname), Jiro doesn't even care much about his mental instability and proves that he is just a selfless middle aged man with a strict grudge.
    1. But for her daughter (Aya), Jiro is even one of the sole reasons why Aya was a very misfortunate person like the rest of the people.
  4. Just like Kaname, Jiro attempts to hide his nature such as caring much his son trying to succeed his expectation for college. As in reality, he is an abusive, angry man prone to outbursts if only his son doesn't study hard on his education along with not able to be accepted to college and would violently beat up his wife and even getting disowning Aya for reasons that were later explained (see below).
  5. He is a selfish, greedy parent who thinks that Kaname will be accepted to Tokyo University as his "fulfilling dream". And hopes that he will ensure his son will study everyday without any average scores on every exams, which makes him absolutely nothing of what a parent should treat their children.
  6. He keeps repeating occasions like telling Kaname to meet his "high expectations" because of said studying to his education, but pressures him nonstop that would led Kaname to do horrible things to Aya.
  7. He neglects and ignores her daughter, Aya, whom was not aware that she was beaten Kaname, who has been enduring Jiro's so-called "expectations" on his grades and wants her to help him relief his stress to get away from him.
  8. He is very unapologetic but often cares only about Kaname's education all the time he thinks about it.
  9. He literally keeps his son from studying in order to ensure his grades are perfect, every single day and pressures him nonstop that he would beat him if he fails or being average.
  10. He doesn’t even find out that Kaname was giving him a hard time on committing crimes because of the beatings he did to him, which makes no sense at all.
  11. The way he's pressuring Kaname so hard at his studies, along with abusing and neglecting his wife and daughter is not explained why (only that he just care much about Kaname's education and perfectionism).
    • However, the wikia page of Jiro implies he was at college and failed at an entrance exam. Resulted in him getting traumatized by it and wants Kaname to go there on his side (but ended up beating him up because of said college and it was written like this in the article), Seriously. While it's inaccurate in the real world, people don't get traumatized when they fail.
      • However, he may have overreacted for unexplained reasons and wouldn't even bother to go to a therapist to solve his problem.
  12. He maybe an abusive man, but he acts very out of character for the following reasons:
    • It is mentioned before (in WHS #9) was that he failed at college and was traumatized by it.
    • Before Aya was adopted from him and his wife, Jiro murdered his wife's second biological child by punching the child's womb, rather than taking her to the hospital (presumably out of frustration from his failure at college).
    • HYPOCRISY: He cares that Kaname would only get perfect high scores on his exams. But hates "average" scores that are just 98 percent on his son's exams and would hit him as a disappointment, SERIOUSLY.
    • He barely cares about Aya, but didn't realized that Kaname had been wandering and slacking off for leaving the house in the morning, lately (even he was abusing his son and forced him to do horrible things). But, assures that his son would come back and "beat" some sense back into him.
    • After Kaname disappeared, he lost all hope and was forced to drink a lot of alcohol. Then, hits his wife out of frustration because of said Kaname's disappearance.
    • When Kaname was found, Jiro STILL didn't learn about his son's whereabouts when he was in a conversation with Detective Misumi, a month ago.
    • When Kaname went back home to warn Jiro and his wife. But, he punches and accuses Kaname on leaving him for a month, and wants him to keep up with his studies by using Nijimi's panties. But, his actions would get him arrested.
    • During the halfway end of the manga, he was expecting the readers to "sympathize" with Jiro just because he was assumed to have failed at college. But, the fact that he abuses, pushes and tried to control Kaname in order to use him to study and make him a successful student. He had no sympathy, unlike Kaname's, when he killed his wife's second unborn child, and literally abusing his wife and children in front of him just to prove himself that going to college is his "fulfilling dream".
    • He doesn't have any acknowledgement with the Magical Girl Site, instead he just uses Nijimi's panties to command whatever he wants and knows how it works. Jiro even lacks any belief that the Site Admins needed to be destroyed for their dangerous, yet murderous tendencies and only cares about again, studying with Kaname.
      • He thought that using Nijimi's panties to control others can keep Kaname from studying, daily. But, doubts that his son will improve his grades and get him accepted to Tokyo University as a "fufilling dream".
      • He even silenced his wife for knowing how Aya was adopted from her, and tried to shut off her voice from Nijimi's panties.
      • He doesn't care about Aya as his adopted daughter ever since he was dared to not share his bloodline. As a result, Jiro tried to get rid of her because of what he had said to Aya (when he thought that Aya was "attacking" her father, while she was just trying to protect him from a Site Admin attack).
  13. IDIOT MOVE: When Juni went to Aya's home and about to kill Aya's family. Jiro using Nijimi's panties backfired when he tells Juni to stop and dies from wasting lifespan from said panties.
  14. He is indeed rubbish than his son Kaname, who also changes from doing the wrongs for the rights, to just randomly becoming "evil" while using Nijimi's panties, despite he had no buildup, character development, and any motivation for his actions whatsoever just like him.
  15. He is at least less unsympathetic than Kaname, Sarina and her friends who are supposed to be reckless, insufferable people.
  16. In the anime, his scenes are butchered and leaving why he abused Kaname for his studies is unknown. But of course, he barely has any personality or character development whatsoever. Instead, it hints that Jiro's actions for foreshadowing.
  17. The 2nd, 5th, 12th, and 13th Bad Qualities has been hidden that he surprisingly hates his wife and daughter, along with all the other girls and it was a sexist! But, he only cares Kaname, as a succeeding student. Seriously.
  18. Just like other villains from Magical Girl Site, he is utterly forgettable and weak.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He is not that evil as Kaname were to become, and was mentioned that his failure at college was well reasonable. And was given to be more of a sympathetic character who was scarred by anger from his failure as well as why he beat up his wife and children.
  2. Since he was using Nijimi's panties, He would have saved his wife and children from the site admins if he didn't get over trying to pressure Kaname to study hard.
  3. His voice acting is good.
  4. His character design is well-made.
  5. In the final chapter when Aya prevented people from misfortune, Jiro became better and no longer had to endure pressuring his son to study hard from his exams and grades. As such, he no longer has to deal with Aya not being part of the family due to said adoption.

Trivia:

  • It is likely in the final chapter, if Jiro still murdered his second child in the new timeline or not.
  • Jiro is similar to Jae Galhyun, the father of the delinquent/bully, Jae Galhwa, from The Devil's Boy:
    • Both are strict fathers that rely on education to their sons and pressure them from it.
    • Both verbally abuse their sons and pressure them to study and not care much about their mental lives.
    • Both are the source of their sons' violent, sadistic nature as they beat up and torture people to solve their problems.
    • There is a difference that Galhyun doesn't have another child, just his wife's stepson. As Jiro's second child was killed by him from his wife's womb.
    • Galhyun even describes Galhwa as a sore loser not able to focuse more on studying, as with Jiro describing Kaname as a succeeding student.
    • Besides Jiro, Galhyun's pressure to him may imply of his insecurities of his high standards against his education.
  • Jiro can also be compared with Zen Toono's mother from Mieruko-Chan, whom both of them are strict parents with high standards about the educations to their own sons. The main difference is that Jiro is a ruthless abuser while Mrs. Toono is an sadistic mentally unstable woman who would grabbed Zen's head and hair to her bare hands all the time when he never gets a 100% high score on his exams as a kid.
