is Yūgo Hachiken's older brother who managed to get accepted to the University of Tokyo, known as the most prestigious university in Japan. However, Shingo later dropped out once he realized his father's dream was having one of his sons accepted there. He decides to pursue his own dream of becoming a great cook, and travels the country to perfect his cooking skills, often with humorously questionable results. He often drops by Yezo unannounced to check on Yugo, since Yugo usually refuses to talk with his family. Shingo is carefree and outgoing which is often a source of animosity from Yugo.
