Rin Kobari (小張 凛, Kobari Rin) / Kobarin (こばりん, Kobarin) is a magical girl who hails from the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. She is accompanied by her companion misaki Mosuke. Rin is designed by Ochau and voiced by Rie Murakawa.


Rin is a bespectacled girl with long dark-colored hair and a conservative fashion sense. Her lady-like aura stems from her background as a girl raised in a traditional Japanese family.[1] Aside from being an obedient grandchild to her grandmother she possesses a strong sense of responsibility and is willing to help others as a normal girl or as a magical girl. Unlike some other magical girls who were forced to take on the duty of being a magical girl, Rin wholeheartedly chose to become one after her meeting with Mosuke and has been living with the timid shikigami ever since.

Her hometown of Tokyo is home to two magical girls, the other, named Rei Amakiri, assuming an antagonistic alignment towards Rin. One famous landmark of Tokyo, the Tokyo Tower, is also a key site of leyline activity, which has been targeted by the Magatsuhi-controlled Yaminabe Cult.


  • Leyline Boost - Using the power of the leylines in her locale, Rin can boost her power to take on more difficult opponents. When using this ability she recites the following incantation: "Gods of the heavens, gods of this land. Serve the Emperor. So that all the universe may prosper eternally!"
