Shigeru is a Human Samurai and serves as one of Eins' aides in Honesty, alongside Naomi. He helps out at the Summer Training Camp and is part of the Choushi defense force when the Return of the Goblin King event occurs.
Shigeru wears a white oriental robe or kimono with a red and gold trim, a black belt with a gold buckle or ornament around his waist, and armor on his legs and forearms. He has tanned skin and short silver hair.
In Log Horizon: West Wind Brigade, Shigeru has been depicted as being a bit presumptuous, immediately questioning Kawara whether she had any experience teaching and being annoyed that she didn't. However, when she proves that she truly has the kids' best interests in mind, he comes to respect her more.
