Karin Shijimi is a girl with a candid personality, Karin makes everyone around her cheer up. Because she is a sister to 8 younger brothers, Karin has developed a habit to act like an older sister to anyone that is down, especially her fellow Prizmmy members. She holds the skill for a wonderful dance and will never practice for a Prism Show without dancing first. She loves to move her body and has the highest dance skills in Prizmmy☆. Her best friend in PURETTY is Shi Yoon.
Karin is a very easygoing and candid person who never dwells on previous setbacks so that she can move forward while continuously improving herself. Karin is also very energetic and passionate, especially when it comes to dance, which is her strongest talent. Her catchphrase is "Galactical!", which is reflective of her unlimited passion that knows no galactical bounds.
As the eldest sister in a family of nine, Karin has always been seen as a big sister type of role model by her fellow Prizmmy members. As such, she would always act as peacemaker between Reina and Mia whenever they got into a quarrel. With her jovial and upbeat persona, as well an deep passion for dancing, Karin is considered by many people including her best friend Shi Yoon to be a friendly person who can be very easy to get along with.
Karin has wavy brown hair that she ties up in a high ponytail that reaches above her shoulders. She is often seen with a yellow heart-shaped hair tie when not performing. She also has sharp hazel yellow eyes.
She tends to wear clothing that reflects her free and spirited personality. During summer, her casual outfit consists of a blue denim vest and white short pants. For winter, she switches to a yellow jacket lined with forest green with a neat blue bowtie, short pink pants, and long white leggings to insulate herself against the cold.
Background3 years previous to Dear My Future, Karin was one of the audience members when Aira performed the "Aurora Rising Dream", and flew along with her because of it. Unknownst to her, she was flying alongside her future Prizmmy☆ members, Mia, Reina, and Ayami.
Role in the PlotKarin starts off as a kind person who always tries to stay positive and sticks with positive reasons, even though it might not be true. Because of that, Mia did not approve Karin to be in the center of their next Prism Show. However, Karin tries to think that Mia meant it in a different way, even though she knows that there is no other explanation. Because of that, Karin's feelings were hurt and she stopped practicing her dancing as well as falling while attempting a Prism Jump. Mia asks Karin if she felt frustrated or sad, but Karin said no even though she did and Mia told her that she couldn't trust her own feelings and left. After meeting a student studying abroad from Korea, Shi Yoon, she explains that she had a similar experience in the past and was not able to jump because she was feeling scared, then tells her that a Prism Show is about having fun. After being calmed down by Shi Yoon and understanding what Mia meant, Karin successfully performs 3 jumps in their next Prism Show as well as Act Trying.
