Marina Tsukishima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsukishima_marina_live2d_model.png
Voiced by: Aya Suzaki

One of the staff at the live house CiRCLE. In Girls Band Party, she is trying to get five bands together for a multi-band event with your help.
  • Ascended Extra: In GBP she seldom appears after the first few Main Story chapters and is entirely off-screen in event and band stories, but BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!☆PICO gives her a good deal more screentime. However...
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Marina gets involved in a lot of scenarios where she comically gets hurt or injured in Garupa Pico thanks to the girls' antics.
  • Chewing the Scenery: In PICO's first episode, she introduces the five main bands with some very dramatic flair.
  • A Day in the Limelight: A much more downplayed example, however the CiRCLING event does give her some additonal focus alongside the event stars, Poppin Party. Namely, we find out that she used to be in a band herself when she was younger, and that she now works in a live house hoping to encourage other bands to follow their dreams and succeed where her band failed.
  • Demoted to Extra: She only gets a very brief appearance in Season 2 thanks to the 2nd season being largely set in Galaxy's studio and not CiRCLE.
  • Token Adult: Marina is the only major adult character in a cast of high school girls (and several middle schoolers).
