Kagome Satori is one of the original characters in the 2017 mobile game Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record. She first appeared in August 2019 in the event Crimson Resolve. She was not a magical girl but she was able to observe them and hear their telepathy thanks to the rumor that Nemu Hiiragi infused her with. She was infused with a small Rumor in order for her to write about and pass on the legacy of Magical Girls, whose hard work and exploits are not known to the general public thanks to their magical nature. She later contracted with Kyubey at the end of Chapter 11.

A Magical Girl continuing her work to make their existence known. She and her best friend since childhood, a stuffed mandragora named "Aru-chan", collect information and compile memoirs together. She used to get extremely agitated and would speak through her stuffed animal.
The Doppel of sowing. Its form is a heavenly flower. The master of this emotion dreams of a world of paradise, but loses her roots to her doppel. This doppel, which lacks a mind of its own, simply extends its roots and sucks up energy from the ground to bloom into a large flower. The flower grows until it envelops the sky and covers everything, moving its intricate patterns like a kaleidoscope, stopping the thoughts of those who see it and inviting them to inhale its powdery pollen, leading them to a paradise. The people on the road to paradise tell others in order spread it, but they are not sure if it is truly happiness themselves. No matter what you do, it will not stop, but as soon as you pull out its roots, it will wither and disappear.
Powers and Abilities
She is able to make Aru-chan come to life and clone itself. In Puella Historia she is seen using this ability to spread news amongst the magical girls of Kamihama.
- The characters of her last name mean "to support" (佐) and "bird" (鳥) respectively.
- Kagome Kagome is a Japanese children's game akin to Ring Around the Rosie, or Duck Duck Goose. The precise meaning of the title is unclear, but includes "caged bird", "circle you", and "lost".
- In Japanese Buddhism, Satori refers to enlightenment. Thus "Satori Kagome" (using Japanese name order) is effectively a homophone for "Enlightenment Lost". Satori is also used for a mythological species of mind reading monsters.
- Although she had not contracted, the Opening theme for the second arc shows her in magical girl form.
- Her design is based on the mandrake root and the lotus flower, with her Magical Girl outfit has a lotus motif (including the colour palette and a lotus crown). Her stuffed toy resembles a mandrake root.
- Her doppel's design, however, more closely resembles a Rafflesia flower which uses the scent of carrion to attract flies and other insects to gather its pollen.
- She shares the same voice actress with Mel Anna.
- While her first name means "enlightenment", the name of her doppel also references this. Sukhavati refers to the land of pure bliss as referred to in Buddhism.
- Smriti refers to a body of Hindu texts, which is a reference to the Magical Girl Memoirs that Kagome is working on. The word denotes a 'remembrance', further alluding to this. Together, the name 'Sukhavati Smriti' means something among the lines of 'remembrance of the land of ultimate bliss'.

|"At first, I just wanted to know.
I wanted to know what kind of person inspired my naming. But now I don't.I want to share the maiden's thoughts and prayers with everyone alive...!"
|Before it flowers. Young leaves plucked from the time they aim for the sky.
If I quietly gather each leaf with my fingertips and scoop up the lush thoughts Let's weave a figure that everyone can see so that they won't be plucked anymoreBehind my eyelids, I see the time of young leaves blooming in the future
|**Unique to Kagome Satori**
A small, trembling hand handed me a stuffed mandragora.
A surprise gift that left my heart pounding and making a sound" "You knew it then, Hibari-chan,about my most favorite book."
I muttered to myself, and hugged the small fluffy body tightly. When I'm looking forward to the field trip tomorrow, or when my heart feels like it's going to be crushed by anxietyMy routine has always been the same.
|The History of Magical Girls Not Taught in Schools.
The professor's words sink in and the world of the past expands in my head. It's hard work with many difficult terms, but I can do my best for everyone.I believe that this time will one day repay the debt of gratitude I owe to the Magical Girls.
|"You know Aru-chan, it makes the world seem shinier."
<We can solve anything now!> "I'm n-not sure I'd go that far......Yeah, with all of us together...we can do it!"
|The cold night wind whips my exhausted body.
The first defeat consumes my heart with a dark color. "It wasn't supposed to be like this..."Even the words of my favorite friends sound distant now
|"Now I want you to spread your legs and fall forward. I'm going to push your back...yeah!"
"Ow-ow-ouch!...Kagome is too spartan...Sana, help me! "I think Felicia-san's body is too stiff...?""If your body is limber, you're less likely to get injured. Let's work hard...!"
|**Unique to Kagome Satori (Night Parade of One Hundred Demons ver.)**
Umbrella ghosts, cloth spectres, lantern ghosts, and... a giant blob monster?
Then there's ghost walls, kappas, and sirens!I was walking along with Aru-chan and his friends, who have somehow taken on the forms of yokai, and they said it was...the "Night Parade of Hundreds of Demons"!
|Wh-what should I do! Such a figure in such a place ... It would be terrible if it was seen!
I have to do whatever it takes to not be seen! At least I have to do this...! Eek! Himena and her friends are here...!...uh...? Maybe I should cancel my transformation?...Is that...Ye-yes, that's what I should do!
|Rumors of the "Night of the Seven Wonders" spread all of a sudden...
Mikage-chan is excited to hear about it and will check it out in Kamihama, but... I don't know what to do... it's hard to say...That rumor... it came about because of my appearance...
|I've been tossed around so much, in this world where I was led astray by a light.
But even in those times, my precious "friends" have supported me by my side. It's okay now... I can see the path forward clearly.Because in my hand, I have the light that illuminates this world...!
|A girl meets someone... guided by a light, she arrives at a strange world.
And, before she could realize it, she had transformed herself into an "unknown self". This is neither a dream nor an illusion, but a real-life ghost story.She has become...a character in a mysterious world
