Marika Fukuroi (袋井魔梨華), also known by her real name Mariko Fukuroi (袋井真理子), is one of the main characters of Magical Girl Raising Project: JOKERS and reappeared in Magical Girl Raising Project: Black.

Marika Fukuroi is a battle-enthusiast and former Mao School student, as she was expelled for being too violent. In her human form, she is a calm and fairly average biology teacher that attends Snow White's high school.

Styler Mimi, Amy, and Monako are her only good friends.

She was one of the participants during the 36th Hell Survival Games.


  • Marika Fukuroi's human form, Mariko Fukuroi
  • Marika Fukuroi


As a human, Mariko has long, brown hair and wears glasses. She is fairly tall. She wears a white lab coat whenever in her laboratory.

Magical Girl

As a Magical Girl, Marika has spiky short red hair with purple, orange, pink and green highlights. She has pale skin and purple eyes with a starburst shape in her eyes as pupils.

On her head, she has a large flower that changes depending on what plant seeds she eats. She also wears flower-shaped earrings of various colors.

Marika's outfit has many black zig-zag designs on her legs and arms. She also has a red flower-shaped mark on her hand.

The bottom of her purple and black dress blooms out, similar to a flower and she wears red flats.


Marika Fukuroi has always had an affinity for plants, as she is an aspiring botanist working as a biology teacher at Snow White's high school. She takes care of many plants in her own private place, though her parents disapprove.

As a Magical Girl, Marika becomes more hot-blooded and loves to fight, willing to challenge anyone to a fight. As a former student in Mao School, Marika is a skilled fighter and uses her magic to her fullest potential, always knowing which flower is the most suitable for the situation.

Marika cares for her allies' well-being and is a friendly person in general, as she healed her fellow magical girls by letting them lick her magical fruit and also giving Snow White a cake as a gift upon meeting her on the school rooftop. Her closest friend was Styler Mimi and she visits her grave often to pay her respects.

Deep down, however, Marika wishes that she would be less impulsive and violent as a Magical Girl and become more calm, rational, and intellectual. She thinks about this often while tending her plants.


To bloom all kinds of magical flowers on her head.

After swallowing plant seeds, she can bloom magical flowers on her head. Different magical flowers have different effects. Some flowers can produce heat rays or foul odors, and some flowers even have strange effects as well. Since the effect of the flowers differs, she does not know the effect unless she actually tries it out and knows the actual plant, which is why she grows many plants in her laboratory to see how long it will grow, how much water and sunlight does it need, etc.

The blooming time of flowers can be adjusted based on environmental factors such as water, sunlight, and soil. Her own physical ability is also affected by the environment. It is also possible to quickly bloom the flower consciously, but doing so will wither it faster.

As a byproduct of her magic, her physical ability is also depended on soil, water, and sunlight. For example, the speed of her wound healing is increased if a more environmental factor is given.

During the events of JOKERS, Marika tried a surprise attack on Snow White with the latter managed to dodged it which piques her interest. Marika demands a fight after knowing she's the Magical Girl Hunter to which Snow White declined. They later team up together. Marika respects her as a fighter and a leader. She often follows Snow White's order though she tends to disregard it when she found an opponent.

After the events of JOKERS, Snow White and Marika started to get close. Marika offered Snow White a cake upon meeting her at the rooftop. Snow White later gives Marika a tour of the school.
