Shinjiro Taiga (大河 新次郎, Taiga Shinjirō) is the captain of the New York Kagekidan's Star Division. He is the playable character and main male protagonist of Sakura Wars V: So Long, My Love.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit


Dispatched to New York to be part of the Star Division, Shinjiro was met with both open hostility and disappointment from the team, who had been expecting his famous uncle rather than the rookie from the academy. He was forbidden from combat and reduced to an usher. All but Gemini believed him incapable of combat and one demanded he be sent back to Japan and have his uncle come. It was not until the team’s captain, Ratchet, was incapacitated that they were forced to allow him to fight. Unknown to him, he has a power hidden inside him yet to be unleashed to its full potential.
