- —Sakurako Shiina, during Mages vs. Mars
Sakurako Shiina (椎名 桜子, Shiina Sakurako) is a character from the series Negima!: Magister Negi Magi by Ken Akamatsu and a protagonist in Kuro Arashi: The Black Storm. She is the 17th student on the class 3-A roster. She is the most cheerful of the three cheerleaders in the class.
She likes Negi Springfield, but only because she thinks he is cute. She loves karaoke and her pet cats, Cookie and Biscuit and is in the Lacrosse Club.
Almost nothing of Misa's life before Mahora Academy is known. She has been in the same class as Asuna Kagurazaka and Ayaka Yukihiro for a very long time, so she knows a lot about them. She has known Yuuna Akashi from elementary school as well.

As a hobby, Sakurako gambles a lot. She wins her bets most of the time, with great profit, as seen when the Kiss Negi Operation concluded and it was discovered that she was the only one who bet on Nodoka Miyazaki to win. She had also bet on her class to get the highest scores during the final exams.

Along with her fellow cheerleaders, she takes part in the "Mars vs. Mages" game and is stripped to her underwear when she is hit by the robots' beam weapons.
Later, the cheerleader trio continue to hold the line at the beach of Alpha despite the advance of armored units. Sakurako, armed with a rocket caster, manages to destroy one Locust and four infantry with a single blast. Madoka continues to use her sniper caster to kill enemy infantry, and notes that the enemy are forcing the defenders back.
