Personality[edit | edit source]
Gentle, kind, and bright, Shizuha is looked up to as a role model for a lot of students.
Shizuha's doting nature lands her in situations where she helps people around school, ranging from baking to assignments and acting routines. Shizuha always carries around a first-aid kit, which everyone seems to appreciate. However, they're not so sure about the specially-made energy drinks she recommends.
A running gag in the game is that Shizuha's health drinks taste awful, even when she makes the other girls in Frontier drink them. In Castaway Fumi's bond story, the gang gets to taste Fumi's island milk tea after Lalafin says it tastes fine, although familiar. Unfortunately, Akira and Kaoruko both find the concoction terrible. Lalafin explains that the reason it tasted familiar is because it reminded her of Shizuha's Special Drink, which Kaoruko then says Shizuha is notorious for.
In the Wonderland for You and Me event, Shizuha tells Lalafin that when she gets to thinking, her hands keep themselves busy. Apart from making energy drinks, she also spends some time baking, swimming, and helping other students in Frontier.
It is frequently brought up that she loves playing crossword puzzles, solving riddles, and doing aromatherapy. In fact, the girls in Rinmeikan recognize Shizuha's talent for tongue twisters, and her name is mentioned in Princess Kaguya's bond story.
Shizuha also enjoys playing video games, sometimes spending the whole weekend in her room on game night. In a "my theatre" story, Misora catches Shizuha waiting in line in front of a gaming store on an early morning. Apparently, Shizuha has pre-ordered a game and she is too excited to wait after school to come pick it up. On a separate occasion, she says that she has built her own PC.
Background[edit | edit source]
Shizuha: "Ever since I was little, I was in love with 'the world of stories.' The fictional world of people's imaginations is full of dreams and hopes."
