Shimazaki Haruka (島崎遥香?), nicknamed Paruru (ぱるる?) and dubbed as Ponkotsu (ぽんこつ?), is a member of Team 4 and is considered as the ace of their team. She is one of the primary characters in AKB48 Murder Mystery series. She was based on and is portrayed by Shimazaki Haruka
A few days after Atsuko announced her graduation, the idol group AKB48 went to a far away island to shoot for Atsuko's final project as a member. After the first day of filming, they were told to stay and rest on the island's owner's vacation mansion. As Takamina detailed the chores to be taken care of, and checked on the members, they noticed that, besides Atsuko, Renacchi is also missing. While in the middle of searching for Rena, Paruru and the rest of them heard from the 1st Gen members that they've already found her.
After they were gathered in the mansion's hallway, all the members were in a state of panic after learning what happened to Renacchi. Overhearing Shinoda and Kaoru's phone conversation, Paru and the others tried to run out and escape, until Atsuko and Takamina arrived. Confused on what Atsuko meant by declaring that she'll take this case, she and the rest of the other members were shocked when Atsuko additionally declared that the suspect could only mean one of the AKB48 Members as the doors and windows were tightly shut, and only the members have access to enter. Comforted by Atsuko's concern for the incident, Paruru and the other members became hesitant after Atsuko miscalculated the number of suspects.
- "In Team 4’s stage, I’m in a unit with Renacchi. What will happen to it? The unit members? Me and Renacchii, Takahashi Juri and Ichikawa Miori. Does that have something to do with the incident?"
