Toyohisa Shimazu is the son of Iehisa Shimazu and nephew of Yoshihiro Shimazu. He was a Japanese samurai who was a member of the Shimazu clan. He was also the castle lord in command of Sadowara Castle. He served in the Battle of Kyushu under his uncle against the Toyotomi. He fought bravely but was ambushed off route when he charged forward.

He was saved by his uncle. He also was said to have participated in the Battle of Sekigahara, where he was killed fending off enemy troops during the Shimazu retreat at the conclusion of the battle. The young man found himself being revived into the modern eras of Japan, serving under God. As of now, he is a member of Neo Gods. Out of curiosity, he has started a small business as a ramen vendor


Born into the Shimazu Clan during the Sengoku era, a time where Japan was embroiled in a bloody civil war. At the tender age of three, Toyohisa was taught the art of war by his father and uncle. By the age of fourteen, he attained his first kill when an assassin tried to sneak into their clan compound. By the age of fifteen, he joined his father on the battlefield, fighting on the frontline. The young man did this for the next fifteen years and would find himself defending his uncle's retreat at Sekigahara.


Toyohisa is a young man in his late 20s of above-average height with short black hair and matching black eyes. He has a lean but highly developed physique from a decade worth of training and years of fighting on the battlefield. Faded scars and worn-out stitches adorn his body, proof of the countless battles he had survived.

Toyohisa has worn various clothing throughout the series: the most notable among them being the uniform of the janitor of Kuoh Academy, a grey overall.

In battle, he is seen wearing a samurai's armor.


Toyohisa is a belligerent and hotheaded individual who enjoys a good fight. Contrary to the portrayed exterior, he is an intelligent and honorable man with little to no interest in power. An example is seen where Toyohisa doesn't wish for anything from God for reviving him, stating he will fight for him as a way to repay his gratitude. A fact that perplexes many of his supernatural allies.

Toyohisa is also described to be a man of the Bushido by God. He greatly disapproves of violence against women. Doing so will earn his wrath and ire. When he was ordered to attack the meeting between the Three Factions, he purposefully ignores many of the female combatants. Further emphasis can be seen where he ignore the female Olympians and opting for the Greek Gods of War and Alcohol.

He dislikes people mocking the Shizuma Clan.

Master Swordsmanship: One of the two traits that earned him his nickname. His skill with the blade was considered to be on the level of Souji Okita. While lacking in grace, his technique leans toward practicality due to his time on the battlefield He is a master of the Jiten-ryu and Iaido. The samurai favors the odachi and wakizashi.

Indomitable Will: Toyohisa possesses a very strong will. His indomitable will allows him to persevere through many of the battles he faced. In the Battle of Sekigahara, he was able to shrug off many gunshots and lacerations from his enemies.

Hachiman: A sword, specifically an odachi, named after the Shinto God of War. The blade was reforged from the remnants of the Greek God of War's broken armor.
