- She's...quite the hotheaded one, this girl.
- —Shinji Hirako, right before defeating Koromo Ryuumonbuchi
Shinji Hirako is a native of Nagano, Japan, and is well known as one of the greatest mahjong players in the world. In fact, he was so powerful that he even managed to defeat Koromo Ryuumonbuchi in the National Tournament of August, 2022. In this said match, he stiff-armed Koromo and that was forceful enough to defeat her. He lives with his wife Hiyori in Nagano, Japan and is 38 years old. He was also apparently some guy in a demon-killing society, but Nobody cares about that.
Shinji is very calm and laid back for the most part, but he is known to have had a long lasting period of depression after his mother died when he was 24. This depression lasted five years. He is very sarcastic and critical of others, though he does respect his mahjong opponents. He is very analytical and observant.
Abilities and Powers
He has the ability to lead opponents into Tenpai, misleading them. However, when they fall for his trap, he will put them in a Shikai hell and defeat them with a single stiff-arm.
