In the UDON comics, Sarai first appeared to be rather weary, but understanding of Ibuki's lifestyle and status as a ninja. Upon the arrival of Makoto, Sarai showed signs of uncertainty about the girl, and felt that Ibuki was likely to be in danger if she accepted Makoto's challenge to a duel. Sarai was angry that Ibuki never sent her any signs of being alright after their meeting afterschool, and took this as a sign of being pushed away. Not being a martial artist, she felt that Ibuki was out of her league and needed to be with her kind, thus leaving her for months.

Later on, she explained her jealousy and felt that she was just too normal of be worthy of being friends. She was happy to hear Ibuki explain otherwise, and was especially happy that Ibuki put in a recommendation for her to become a Ninja as well. The two rekindled their friendship ever since.
