Misaki Kirihara is a police officer in Tokyo who is investigating Contractors, initially as part of the Public Security Bureau, and later as a member of Section 3.

PersonalityEdit

Misaki has a strong sense of justice and a sharp intuition and became a policewoman in order to protect the weak. She is a firm and strong person who has a soft spot for Hei. She is controlling and protective. Misaki rarely smiles or laughs. She has a distaste for smokers due to their smell, and is sensitive about the exposure of her body. She likes eating greasy food but claims to stay fit due to constantly moving around everyday as part of her job.

Gemini of the MeteorEdit

Misaki relocates to the Hachijo-Jima police station.[20] One night while stargazing, she witnesses BK-201's star vanishing.[21] After discussing this with Kanami by phone, Misaki ring Saitō and brings up BK-201. She is interrupted by the arrival of Goro Kobayashi. Kobayashi informs her that BK-201 is still alive and offers to help her track him down.[20]

S2E4 Misaki Kirihara and Mina Hazuki

Misaki is restrained by Mina Hazuki.

She resigns from the police and joins Kobayashi's Section 3 unit with the alias of Yayoi Ichinose. Upon meeting with Mina Hazuki, Genma Shizume and Yōko Sawasaki and upon being fully integrated into the unit, Genma shows Misaki a wanted poster of Hei, confirming he is still alive despite his star's disappearance. She talks to Saitō by phone later on, dismissing his concerns about her sudden resignation from the police. She is interrupted by Mina, who hangs up her call, and then talks to her afterwards, stating that she is 'cold' and has 'sexual chastity'. These comments prompt Misaki to storm off, angered, and Mina only sighs in disappointment. After meeting with an informant who was unable to provide the information she wanted, she follows his suggestion arranges to meet Oreille at the abandoned National Observatory. She is surprised to find out that she already knows who she is.[22]

S2E5 Oeille meets Misaki Kirihara

Misaki meets with Oreille.

Misaki visits the abandoned National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, where Oreille surprises her. She asks if Misaki wants to know about what happened in Vladivostok, but Misaki instead asks her about why BK-201's star vanished. She tells Misaki that an anti-Contractor weapon was used on him and informs her of the Mikata Documents, claiming the keyword is Izanami. As she leaves, she points out a red star, telling Misaki to wish upon it to see BK-201 again.[23]

S2E5 Misaki Kirihara and Yoko Sawasaki

Misaki and Yōko pass through security on way to visit Izanami.

She later looks for this information on a computer, concealing her search from Yōko as she arrives to summon her to a meeting. Kobayashi tells the team that they have new orders - to transport Izanami from Sapporo. Mina tells her that BK-201 was spotted in Sapporo. In the morning, Misaki and Mina visit the hotel BK-201 stayed in, where Michiru informs them that he had a girl with him. Misaki suspects it to be Shion's sister, Suou. As Mina hurries her to leave for their mission, Misaki spots one of Suou's origami birds on the table. The team arrive at the research facility where Misaki gives a mission briefing to the team before going to check on Izanami with Yōko.[23]

S2E6 Izanami, Misaki and Yoko

Yōko and Misaki with Izanami's container.

Later, Genma leads a decoy convoy while Misaki and the rest of Section 3 load Izanami on to a submarine to transport it from Sapporo to Tokyo. When Genma reports that he has successfully tricked BK-201, Misaki orders him to capture Hei alive as she wishes to question him, but the signal is cut off. Mina then heads off to the other side of the harbour, telling Misaki that she may have spotted something. When the crane moving Izanami is shot by Suou, Misaki dispatches half her troops to back up Mina, while she and the others remain to ensure the safety of Izanami. Aboard the submarine as it leaves Sapporo, she is anxious due to Hei's ability to manipulate electricity. However she is reassured by Yōko Sawasaki that BK-201 has lost his powers as a Contractor. She questions what Section 3 really is, but Yōko only says that it would also be best if she would not think of her as an ally. The pair conclude that BK-201 will come after Izanami again.[24]

S2E7 Misaki Kirihara and Genma Shizume

Genma encourages Misaki to work with him in finding out what is going on.

Some time later, Misaki returns to the Observatory where she contemplates calling Kanami Ishizaki, but decides against it. Genma appears and tells her that it is for the best as the phone lines are tapped and it would have caused trouble for Kanami. He then notes that he thought Misaki would be trawling through archives and proposes that they work together to find out what is going on in Section 3.[25] Oreille meets with Misaki and tells her more about the Mikata Documents and their origins, mentioning a Contractor who could travel through time. Genma later visits Misaki in a cafe, shrugging off her suggestion that he is stalking her and tells her about Izanami's supposed power. He asks what they want to do after capturing Izanami, puzzling Misaki, before denying that he was referring to Section 3. He then asks Misaki to give him something in return. On foot of Oreille's information, Misaki checks out the recording she made of Yoshimitsu Horai during the Saturn Ring incident, noting that this was the one time when she might have encountered such a Contractor.[26]

S2E9 Misaki Kirihara finds Mikata Documents

While listening to this, she discovers a message from Amber, warning of the nature of Izanami and Izanagi, along with helping her to access the Mikata Documents. During a meeting with Kobayashi and Genma, she is angered that Izanami's new location is being hidden from her. Kobayashi reveals that the location is kept to a very small number of people who have their memories of it erased to preserve the secret. Upon leaving the room, she falls into thought about wanting to see Hei and what she found in the Documents, still skeptical yet feeling there is some truth behind it. She later discovers that information has been leaked about Mina and Yōko's trip to Haneda airport and, along with Genma, rushes to the airport where she witnesses Hei capturing and escaping with Yōko.[27]

Hei vs Misaki

Misaki is attacked by Hei.

She then is informed by Kobayashi of the Doll system and that Hei has fled by boat. Misaki leaves Genma in the airport car park and heads in to town, where she happens upon Suou and July. After learning that BK-201 is not with them and that he has not treated Suou very well, she confirms that Suou is indeed a girl and that she is not Shion, even going as far to say that she may not even be Suou. Shocked by this, Misaki tracks down Suou's mother, Asako Nakimiya, who confirms to her that Suou died in an explosion at a university in Moscow. She also states that Mikhail Pavilchenko was a member of the Syndicate and that he must have used the M.E. and Shion's ability to create a copy of Suou. While leaving the building, Misaki is set upon by Hei, who demands to know why she is with section 3. Misaki replies that she wants to know where Yōko is, but Hei doesn't answer, and instead tries to kill her. He stops when Suou intervenes, pleading for him not to kill Misaki as she was nice to them. Hei complies with the request but takes Suou and July, leaving Misaki incapacitated and shouting "Li" after him, yet again.[28]

S2E11 Oreille recruits Misaki

Oreille convinces Misaki to accompany her.

After that Kobayashi reports that Hei most likely killed Yōko after learning Izanami's location from her. Kobayashi assigns her and Genma to search for Pavilchenko, still being left out on the Izanami case. She proceeds to quote the Mikata Documents, to which Kobayashi responds by quoting more of the Documents and stating that the "predictions have reached their final stage". He also said that he kept it quiet so that there would be no unnecessary chaos and the last time the information circulated, it led to Heaven's War. Also, he tells them that Izanami can no longer be stopped, and that the only way to prevent the meeting is to capture and kill Izanagi.[29]

Misaki and Genma take a troop carrier to east Ikebukuro, where Pavlichenko has been sighted at the aquarium. However, she never enters the building as Orielle comes to take her away, telling her "there will soon be a bloodbath here" and that leaving is their top priority. As they leave, American helicopters heading towards Ikebukuro. Orielle explains that America is hoping to restore their status as a "super-power" now that the Syndicate is gone and that they are here for Izanami and Izanagi, although the Americans see them as an "energy source." They arrive at an underground entrance to Hell's Gate, where they are joined by July and Mao.[29]

After that, Misaki escapes into a hover-car with Orielle and her twin dolls and Mao, who somehow managed to get onto Misaki's head, much to their surprise. Misaki and Mao are then shown a room, similar to the Doll system, but with figures that resemble Shion despite not even being dolls. In the centre of the room is a large italic orange coloured ball that contain all the memories of human kind collected by the ME system are stored within it. With the memories, everyone shall be copied and placed on a new earth, created by Shion using his ability, without the gates. The memories implanted by ME wouldn't last too long, unless the meteor core was used. Suou was an experiment. This is all explained by Orielle.

Misaki rushes fro the gate after this, trying to make her wish come true, which prompts a warning from Mao that she may also lose something. She then notices BK-201's star shining brightly and suddenly is floating over the grassy, flowery area where Hei, Yin/Izanami, Suou, Shion and July are. Hei appears to be touching Yin, however a bright light is emitting from the area and Yin's back is to Misaki. The light then expands and leaves Misaki stood back on a rubble filled ground within the gate with Kobayashi. Kobayashi begins to say how everything is over, to which Misaki disagrees, saying that it's a beginning. Kobayashi seems to agree and admits that's why he asked her to join section 3.

In the end, Misaki joined a faction with Orielle, Goro Kobayashi and Mao. The goal of the faction is unclear, however she does say that "In the not so far future, we chose the same path for what would happen". The actual name of the faction was never confirmed, only that the people called them the Syndicate.

She admits to not hearing anything of BK-201 after the incident, although she believes he is still alive. This may also be proven by his star still shining.
