Shouichi has recently moved into the neighbourhood.
Unlike most young men in their early twenties,
he spends a lot of time in solitude, reading and thinking about the meaning of life and whatnot.
As he is always deep in thought,
he looks serious all the time.
While he may not be demonstrative, he is invariably kind to everyone, animals and humans alike. According to Ramón's grandma who lives next door to him, Shouichi is a hero in the making, for he has a noble mind which is both
gentle and righteous.
