Satomi Murano (村野 里美 lit. Murano Satomi) is a deuteragonist in the series. She is usually Shinichi Izumi's best friend and companion, as well as strong friends with Yuko Tachikawa and Akiho Suzuki. Over the course of the series, they develop a romantic relationship, but their attraction to and fondness for one another is hampered by Shinichi's fear of his own monstrous nature, and Satomi's fear of Shinichi's secretive behavior and the mood swings that result from the trials and tribulations in his life. She never learns about Migi's existence, although a near-death experience may have driven him to use his abilities in front of her without Shinichi's realization.

Appearance

Satomi is an attractive teenage girl that other people have feelings for her which causes Shinichi Izumi to get into fights. She has several different appearances in the anime and manga.

  • In the anime, she has chin-length maroon hair that is clipped up in the front with a green hair clip and maroon-brown eyes.
    • She no longer uses her green hair clip, which shows that she has bangs swept to the left.
  • In the manga, she has chin-length dark hair with a fringe hanging on the left side and dark-colored eyes.

Personality

Satomi is depicted to be a very average young girl with a overall cheerful attitude and she is shown to have interest in Shinichi Izumi at the beginning of the show as she has a rather obvious crush on Shinichi, to which her friends tease her with. She even describes Shinichi's change as "cool" and notes this change to Shinichi himself, though later begins to question why he changed, disliking his colder, more forceful personality.

She is shown to greatly care about both her friends and Shinichi, as shown when Satomi often goes to Shinichi's house to check on him when he's missed school or when he's seen lost in thought. She is also perceptive, noticing that there is something slightly off about Shinichi's right hand.

Despite being traumatized by the death of many of her classmates during Hideo's last stand, she doesn't talk much about it. She does suffer nightmares and become distressed when Shinichi continues being involved in parasite-related events. However, despite her demure personality, she shows strength when a serial killer threatens her, and staunchly defends Shinichi from his insinuations.


Background

Satomi originally met Shinichi after their middle school exams, expressing hope that they would become friends.

Plot

Satomi serves as Shinichi Izumi's main love interest and forms a special relationship with him throughout the story. Though it was awkward at first due to Shinichi's constant changes and the terrors that were happening around them at the time, their relationship eventually grew to a balanced point. By the end of the story, Satomi is Shinichi's true lover and helps him as he continues to retake his University Levels Exams.

    • In the Tokyopop westernized release, Satomi is named "Sara".
  • Satomi's surname Murano means "town, village" (村) (mura) and "field, wilderness" (野) (no).
