| Kai Shimada|
|Rank||2nd Division Corporal|
Kai Shimada is a corporal of the second division, of the Shinsengumi. he has various roles similar to Susumu and has brute strength. He is rarely seen, although he seems to be a friendly man and is loyal to his superiors.
He has a rather square-jawed face, with dark brown hair, and is always seen wearing his Shinsengumi haori. Kai seems to be a competent warrior.
Second Season: Now that some of the Shinsengumi warriors are gone (Sanosuke and Shinpachi left), Shimada seems to have been promoted to a higher status. He is now featured more often, and it's assumed he knows about the Rasetsu. He runs certain errands for Hijikata and Kondou. When Kondou sacrifices himself so that Hijikata and the troops can leave, he leads the escape.
His character is historically based off of real Kai Shimada.
