|Sashihara Rino's Testimony|
- "I feel bad for Rena-chan, but I’m an honest girl. But in this situation, aren’t you thinking it’s totally in character for Sashihara to do something like this? No, I really don’t like it if someone dies. I really don’t like it at all. It’s terrible."
- ―Sashihara Rino's Testimonial[Testimonials and Alibis (src)]
Sashihara Rino (指原莉乃?), nicknamed Sasshi (さっしー?) and Sashiko (さしこ?), is a member of AKB48's Team A. She was the very first to discover the two victims, and was one of the top suspects. She is based on and is portrayed by Sashihara Rino.
Parts in the Story
Because of her habitual curiosity, wandering around the mansion where they would be staying after the CM shoot, she was the very first one to find the first two victims, making her one of the most probable suspect.
After Nyan Nyan regained conciousness, and after seeing a worried Sashiko beside her, she began to attack the latter, convinced that she was the killer. Nyan Nyan began interrogating her forcibly by pointing out that the "N" in Renacchi's message could also indicate Not Yet, and the fact that Sashiko was the one to find both victims first. Before Nyan Nyan could completely break her, Takamina intervened.
Distressed on how the others in AKB48 might see her now, Sashiko still wanted to clear her name and participated in Acchan's next plan of attack against the killer.
