Voice Actor


Shino (Japanese: シノ) is a 16 year old unemployed ninja who along with Izuna, Gen-An, and Mitsumoto lost her job as a ninja in service of lord Mugen. She is traveling with her surrogate family to find a new village to live in.

Background[edit | edit source]

Shino worked with Izuna as a ninja. It is assumed Gen-An taught them both ninja skills. She was not fired for being a poor ninja but because "Ninja's are so yesterday"

Personality[edit | edit source]

Shino is much more calm and less dramatic than Izuna although she looks to Izuna as almost a little sister, despite being the same age. She respects Izuna's abilities enough to not baby her but vowed to travel with her until she learned to take care of herself.

In Other Media[edit | edit source]

Making their third cameo appearance in Metal Saga: The Ark of Wastes[1] (Japanese: メタルサーガ 〜荒野の方舟〜)[2], Izuna and Shino were available three times as the twenty fourth ultra rare player character armor (skins) available via an in-game lottery[3] as well as a unique weapon. When equipped, the Shino armor would offer benefits to avoidance", "action", and "attack power" . Each piece of armor additionally had the ability to negate a different status condition.[4] Service ended on February 28, 2018, giving players 7 months to use the equipment and making it no longer available for use.[5]
