Shin Higaku is a canon character who attends Akademi High School.
Shin has messy dark blue hair. His eyes are light purple with dark circles beneath them. He always has a sad expression, and a shadow on the top half of his face. He wears the default uniform unless customized by the player, along with a moon choker if the Occult Club is active.
Shin has the Coward persona. If Ayano tries to take a photo of his face without being in the Photography Club, he will hide behind his hands. If he witnesses murder, he will begin to beg Ayano to spare him in exchange for his silence.
Shin and Oka are assumed to be very close, as Oka trusts Shin to operate the Occult Club while she is away. He will be the substitute president when Oka is absent for the first three weeks of the game.
- His name basically translates to "Occultism" in English.
- Shin's name was originally planned to be Cho Shizen, however this was changed.
- Shin and Oka are the only members of the Occult Club who have both eyes visible.
- In current builds, he does not operate the club if Oka is dead. Instead, the club disbands.
