|Family and Relatives||Tomaru Sawagoe (father)|
Shinichi Shiba (older brother)
Youji Shiba (柴 瑤二 Shiba Youji) is the protagonist of Miss Each Other.
He is the younger brother of Shinichi Shiba. Although Tomaru Sawagoe was his biological father, Youji was apparently unaware of this, knowing Tomaru only as the doctor who examined him in his childhood.
He is a childhood friend of Misao Mori, with whom he attends Aoi Gakuen.
Despite his unscrupulous façade, as well as their constant bickering, Youji cares deeply about Misao. This is emphasized by the fact that he shows no interest in anyone else, even after the events of MEO.
- Among the protagonist sons of Tomaru, Youji is the only one to not have more than one love interest or have the option of cheating on said love interest.
- Neither he nor Shinichi appear on 0verflow's most recent adultery chart.
