For more information see Shift Arakawa (Yaycupcake)

Shift Arakawa (荒川 志太) is Azami Izumida's childhood friend whom he had been very close to, but he had somewhat of a fight when Azami went on and started acting, which happened to be Shift's dream too to be in theater and the latter was jealous though he knew it was wrong to feel that way. They made up when Kumon Hyodo brought them together. Despite being new, he was decided to be the lead role in the God Troupe's play in their second act-off with Mankai.


Shift is a tall boy with short brown hair and golden eyes.
