    Sarina Shizukume (Japanese: 雫芽 さりな, Shizukume Sarina) is an antagonist of the psychological horror magical series, Magical Girl Site. She was introduced as the school bully of Aya Asagiri, the main protagonist of the series and she (along with Aya's brother, Kaname) was the sole reason why she became a magical girl when the Magical Girl Site bestowed her a “magic stick”.

    Why She's Intentionally An Ungrateful "Friend"

    1. To get the cat out of the box, she is just another generic "clichéd pretty rude mean girl" who verbally bullies her classmate, Aya for reasons that are explained in later chapters to the point that she and her classmate’s brother, Kaname (who also torments Aya as a “stress relief”) are the sole reason why Aya became a magical girl when she discovers the Magical Girl Site because of them.
    2. The only sole reason why she bullied Aya gets ever more ridiculous:
      • When she first met Aya, she seemingly was just being "friendly" (or not), and when she looked at Sarina, she did not properly thanked her for the favors and accuses her of being ungrateful to her to the point that she would vandalized her belongings.
        • This is incredibly forced just to show that if you don't speak up clearly to people they'll beat you up and ruined your life.
          • To say the least, it would have been better that Sarina had been bullying other people before she met Aya, that would have make sense.
          • To add the salt to the wound, she is in fact a rip off of Shoya Ishida from A Silent Voice, due to the fact that they torment those with a disability, at least Shoya admits his actions due to the fact his friends used him for that, while Sarina is sadistic.
      • At least Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has some reason to torment Jonathan Joestar (from Part 1 of Phantom Blood), and ruining his life, since he plays a larger role in part 3 of Stardust Crusaders and works as a foil to Jonathan.
    3. Her delinquency and juvenile behavior make her one of the worst examples of the “mean girl” stereotype and a “bullying” trope as well. No wonder later chapters would have her redeemed and join Aya and the magical girls.
    4. Like Kaname, She does not have setups for becoming Aya's tormentor.
    5. Her traits just consists of being lazy, sadistic, cruel, and a liar to most other antagonist behaviors, that's it.
    6. After recovering from the hospital and receiving a yo-yo magic stick from Nana, she doesn't receive any repercussions for her actions when she goes back to school with Ai, which means that she and Sarina would proceed to continue ruining Aya’s life forever until her redemption at least.
    7. She is mostly similar to Aya's brother Kaname, who both beat up Aya and are proud of their actions.
    8. She treats Aya like a poor puppy who doesn't deserve good treatment even whenever she is very depressed. Making her an unsympathetic mean girl and a remorseless one at best.
    9. She's a villainous Mary Sue and Karma Houdini, which Sarina is taken far too seriously to come across as cartoonishly psychotic/evil.
    10. Worst of all, she seems to act like a one-dimensional creep just like Aya's older brother, Kaname, but more than that.
    11. She and her friends act as selfish bullies of themselves who cruelly torment Aya and force her to the point of committing suicide. If that happened, they would have shown no remorse or care for the repercussions.
    12. She also shows no qualms about killing animals and people (including Aya’s pet cat, Mya) and doesn't care about what she's done until Aya convinces her.
    13. Her dialogue is incredibly painful to the nerve like she pretends to seriously say the "stop please (‘gamete kudusai’)" line and just swears way too much (which was in the translations of the manga.).
    14. She is also a female rip-off of Katsuki Bakugo from My Hero Academia, who is also a mean-spirited bully as well and redeems as well while being a short-tempered brat, where Sarina lacks any of the likability, tragic complexity and character development that Katsuki had (by Bakugo standards), and thus making Sarina a unlikable jackass in vast comparison.
    15. She had Nijimi to reveal the location of Rina Shioi, the "magical hunter" who murdered her friend, and forced her to turn against Aya and Yatsumura, whom put her to the hospital.
    16. Her cruelty is way too similar to Tomoo, from Elfen Lied (who is also an animal killer just like her), Henry Bowers, from IT, and even Chris Hargensen from Carrie, who is also just like her.
    17. After Erika and Shota were killed by the train, Sarina became much more of a deranged killer despite her age and going as far as to use a box cutter to scar Aya for revenge for murdering them, while her crony, Ai realized what's she is doing and forces her to stop, but yelled at her friend by ignoring her warnings.
      • Since then, she sliced half of Soji Udano’s body (murderer of Tsuyuno Yatsumura's parents) with her Yo-Yo magic stick and shows no remorse for the killing.
    18. Hypocrisy: She may have come across as a vengeful girl, but she is no less than a pathetic liar pretending to be the victim who just sent Shota Arai to assault Aya and teleport him with Erika to death in a train and thinks Aya was the reason she murdered them.
    19. Similar to Linus from The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, her redemption from Aya is incredibly forced and only exists for her to realize her past actions and wants Sarina to be happy while not being cruel.
    20. Idiot move: She tells Aya to shoot the site admin, instead of turning it back into a human, which the latter to stab her and ended up using all her lifespan to have Aya revert the two site admins into humans and leading her to fade away.

    Intentional Redeeming Qualities

    1. She does indeed regret her actions when Aya tries to stand up to herself saying she is done being tormented by her and rescuing her from a falling building.
      • In later chapters, she started having good terms when she teamed up with Aya and her friends to fight the site admins, while also still being the same from the new timeline.
      • In the "apple" chapters from the anime adaption's DVDs, she no longer torments Aya, when she came back to school.
    2. Her voice acting is good.
    3. Her design looks cute and attractive.

    Trivia

    • Sarina can be easily compared to Katsuki Bakugo from My Hero Academia, with the bullying persona and redemption arcs:
      • Both are extremely mean-spirited along with their friends, insulting and disrespecting people to everyone they know, even bullying Aya Asagiri and Izuku Midoriya by discouraging them during their first day of school.
      • Both have a difference where Katsuki desires to become a number one hero and prove himself despite his egotistical-narcissistic attitude along with his unheroic actions, while Sarina cares about bullying Aya for no reason.
      • They threatened their victims to contemplate suicide.
      • Katsuki's actions are unheroic and villainous, while Sarina's actions are unjustifiable and even more villainous.
      • They are depicted to be delinquents.
      • However, they do redeem themselves and are aware of their actions and mistakes.
    • Sarina can also be compared to the bully Henry Bowers from Stephen King's novel IT:
      • Both are rapidly developed into hateful, loathing, insufferable individuals who often display excessive negative and stereotypical feelings toward those around them (particularly their classmates). And they often caused some highly juvenile troubles.
      • They both used knives to scar their victims.
      • Both lost one of their friends when they tried to chase their bullying victims, but the difference is that Sarina lost her friend, Erika Kajima, and an older student Shota Arai when they were trying to torture Aya, their friend's classmate. But, of course, Sarina and Ai Kawano did witness their friends' deaths. In Henry's case, he and his gang tried to chase an obese student named Ben Hanscom when they tried to scar his body, and by that, one of their gang members, Patrick Hockstetter (in the 2017 film version of the novel and miniseries), is killed by It, or Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Unlike Sarina, Henry doesn't care or is even aware that Patrick died.
      • Henry doesn't apologize while Sarina does.
      • Both treat their friends very poorly.
      • They showed no remorse for killing people.
      • There is a difference in their fates where Sarina was revived in a new timeline where no one is misfortuned and still have good terms despite Aya rewriting her memories of herself in the original timeline. While Henry, as an adult, is killed by one of the adult losers, Richie Tozier.
    • Sarina is the only student in Aya's class to not wear a red bow tie.
    • Sarina can also be compared to Jae Galhwa from manhwa, The Devil's Boy.
      • Both are violent cruel bullies who would beat up people just to not mess with them and would humiliate them to do so.
      • Both are consumed of being neglected and betrayed by people who actually cared about them.
        • The only difference is that Galhwa was betrayed by his friend (Lee Shiyun) for attacking him after being "revived" as a powered demon and doesn't trust him at all, and when he met Jungho from bumping at him, he often torments him.
        • While Sarina is ungrateful for Aya to not thanked her the favors.
