Shigeru had to be dragged to The Maple Hotel to meet him and his mother Kaede. At first, Shigeru was opposed to the engagement.[3] Several days after Shigeru and Tsukasa began dating, she became depressed and stopped going to school. This worried both her father and mother.[4] Shigeru ultimately requested for the engagement to be called off. Her parents acquiesced.[5]

Personality and traits
