Shiroya

Plot Summary: The MC chooses Shiroya to accompany her because he has a cheerful and peaceful presence. Kaito, Kikyo, and Rindoh all sign up to come along as well. The MC grew up with the ninja so she believes that she knows Shiroya well, but the night before they leave on their quest the MC sees a Shiroya that she doesn’t know; a Shiroya who’s hazel eyes are red.

What I think of him: Shiroya is sweet, cheerful, and energetic. Shiroya frequently helps the MC in smoothing over things when tensions between the urban villages and the country villages arise. Even though he seems to be carefree, Ayumu points out that both he and Shiroya are both masters of concealing their emotions, they just do it differently. Even though he is a talented ninja, he at times has little confidence in himself because he came into his ninja powers late and also because he frequently compares himself to Kaito. Overall Shiroya is a wonderful sunflower child who feels like he would be an excellent kindergarten teacher. An event in his past cause him to develop an Other Shiroya, who comes out when Shiroya is afriad or unable to cope. The Other Shiroya has red eyes (as opposed to Shiroya’s hazel) and is more worldly. His purpose is to protect Shiroya

Charm point: He wants to cook the MC things and take care of her

Cuddle, kiss, or push down: Cuddle, to take away all of his bad experiences and to embrace both sides of him

Would have eloped with: 

  • Kaito, because he’s very supportive of Shiroya and even though he probably has feelings for the MC, his bro-hood with Shiroya is his top priority and he really supports their relationship

Favorite moments:

  • Shiroya cooking for everyone
  • The cherry blossom scene
  • The cabin in the snow
  • When the other Shiroya “kidnaps” the MC
  • I love the twist Solmare applied while making a Hyuga descendant. Hyuga’s trait was being two-faced, and really matches that but in such a different way with the normal Shiroya being so happy and kind like how Hyuga acted when he was in Yoshitsune’s presence and the Other Shiroya being closer to how Hyuga normally was

Worst moments:

  • The villain twist was obvious, I didn’t think it really had to happen except to maybe get the reader curious to read that route. But what I really want to know is why. There are no explanations or hints and I find it sort of inexcusable
  • How did the MC come to the decision about how to end the curse. She didn’t know the full details about it until moments before but somehow she definitely knew that preforming a certain crazy action was going to fix things
  • The Happy Ending was too short

Worth the price of admission?: Yes, I don’t regret picking Shiroya first although most people probably went for Kaito or Kikyo. He is an adorable sunshine child, and I felt that he and the MC would make a great couple/family

After the main route (POSSIBLE SPOILERS):

  • Epilogue: (You can get this from the Fortune Slip that becomes available after you unlock the Happy Ending) This takes place directly after the Happy Ending. Since the ending was so short this should honestly have just be another section onto that. The MC and Shiroya get a little closer, but it’s too bad that they don’t go all the way like they would have in an older Solmare games
