After the time-skip, he is shown wearing a purple shirt over a black long-sleeve, an apron, from where he works, casual pants, and purple and white shoes.
Before the time-skip, Shun was quite obnoxious, yet a great friend and can be serious at times. Hikari gets mad at Shun and his friend,Takeshi Egawa, but soon befriends them. Even later, Shun can be a bit childish at times, but he can come through, as a good friend would. When he sees Hikari again, he gets overjoyed and that's when he makes his first appearance after the time-skip.
Takeshi, it appears, is Shun's best friend. In the first few episodes, it shows him that he's always with Takeshi.
Shun befriends Hikari when both the sea kids go to Mihama Middle School.
Akari works with Shun at the Saya Mart.
