Differences from the Counterpart

  • Unlike his counterpart Akane Himegami, who has currently disappeared, he moves to works as a butler for Duanmu Zeyu instead. This is somehow similar to Aoi Himegami, Akane's manga counterpart who later become Hisui Hatsushiba's butler after having been fired from the Sanzenin household.
    • Also, his intention to steal Royal Jade, the King's Jewel's counterpart in the Live action show, to help his master regain his power, is similar to Aoi who wanted to steal the King's Jewel to help his master get the power of royalty. While Akane's only intention is to get the power of the legendary butler uniform.
  • His age and zodiac sign are mentioned, while Akane's and Aoi's are both unknown.


  • Shen's name contains the same last character as Akane's surname (神), but read in Chinese style.
