Appearance[]

Sachiko is an extremely short preteen girl with long black hair and dark eyes. She was wearing a turtleneck jumper covered in stars at the time of her death.

Personality[]

Sachiko was sweet to Akira, but also seems to enjoy playful teasing. She apparently has a childhood crush on Akira even calling him and they were almost lovers, but he seems to either be oblivious to it or does not take it quite seriously.

History[]

Devilman[]

She is first seen outside the Makimura home trying to ring the doorbell, but was too short to reach it. Miki Makimura surprises Sachiko by picking her up so that she can ring it. Sachiko is confused until Miki introduces herself, after which she shyly asks if Akira is home. Right after Miki asks who she is, Akira comes out and welcomes Sachiko in his arms. Miki asks again who she is, and Akira explains that she used to live next door to him and that they are close friends. Sachiko chimes in that they are almost lovers, resulting in a staring match between her and Miki, with Akira standing by confused. After their visit, Akira walks Sachiko to the train station, where she boards the 16:10 Shinkansen. Before they part, Akira makes Sachiko promise to never take the train by herself again.

While Sachiko was on the train, as Sachiko would notices the scenery would change from a tunnel to a cave. She asks the man next to her where they were going, but he and the rest of the passengers begin to slowly panic after looking outside. It becomes apparent that the train had been swallowed by a demon as the train guard then comes into the carriage and reveals himself as Jinmen. The passengers try to escape the train, but find the exit blocked off by a woman in a large coat, who immediately reveals herself to be the demoness named Aleda. as the two demons proceed to kill and eat every passenger onboard the train.

Soon after the train's disappearance is reported, Akira gets a phone call from Jinmen, telling him to meet him in a park. Akira arrives at the park, and sees Sachiko's face, shrouded in darkness, describing the gruesome details of her death and lamenting that she'll never be able to see her parents or friends again. Jinmen comes into the light making it clear that Sachiko is the centre face on Jinmen's shell.

Akira transforms into Devilman and fights Jinmen, but Jinmen gains the upper hand by blocking Devilman's attacks with his shell. He tries to exploit Devilman's attachment to Sachiko and reluctance to harm the people on his shell. But Sachiko begs Akira to kill Jinmen, pleading with him not to worry about her as she is already dead. Taking Sachiko's words to heart, Devilman smashes his fist through Sachiko, completely destroying the left side of her face and killing her. Devilman then closes Sachiko's remaining eye, allowing her to be laid to rest.

Devilman Lady[]

Sachiko was seen in Hell, still attached to the shell of Jinmen. When Jinmen attacks Akira and Jun Fudo, Sachiko screams out to Akira. She berates him and asks why he tore her face off possibly due to influence from Jinmen. Fortunately, she is saved when Devilman kills Jinmen, and all the souls what were in his body were finally released, and presumably ascend to Heaven

Trivia[]

  • In Devilman: The Demon Bird series, Sachiko was replaced by Akira's mother as the center face who told Akira to end her suffering by killing Jinmen.
  • While not appearing physically, the human form of the demoness named Illuge was based on her, instead going by the name Sachi Iruma.
