Shōma (翔真?) is a child who is enrolled in Shinigami Elementary and is currently studying to become a full-fledged Shinigami.

Appearance

Shōma has all white hair (light green/aqua in the anime) and blue eyes. He is usually seen wearing a white dress shirt and bow tie along with shorts and suspenders.

Personality

Shōma is from a wealthy family and is the complete opposite of Rinne. He is a bit of a glory hound with an over-inflated sense of his own abilities and constantly tries to take on tasks that are above his skill level in an attempt to make himself look better than everyone else. He is actually very inexperienced and is shown to be behind his class in achievements. He often tries to tackle on problems that are beyond his skill levels and causes more problems to spirits than actually solving them. Due to Shōma's behavior problems, he is also easily lead astray and finds himself in trouble after taking shortcuts to get ahead.

History

Initially, Shōma is paired with Rinne who is meant to serve as a mentor to the young Shinigami, for the Shinigami Kid Training. At first he felt enthusiastic as he is Tamako’s grandson, but upon realizing that their economic backgrounds are radically different, he decides that Rinne has nothing to offer him and ignores all of his lessons. And as he wants to exorcise an evil spirit to get the 50 points needed to complete the homestay program, instead of guiding animal spirits, his homestay takes too long. Masato tricks him, in turning regular spirits into evil spirits to be taken to hell and simultaneously put Rinne in trouble. Worried for the spirits, he put his life on the line to save them, and Rinne comes to save him. And so Shoma sees Rinne in a new light, and feels humbled by his offer to guide 5 human spirits to finally earn his 50 points, though it took him 3 days to do so since they were mad at him for turning them into evil spirits.

Eventually, Shōma is partnered with Kurosu, a sophisticated and extremely powerful black cat who dutifully assists his young master as if he were his personal valet, going so far as to engineer situations that almost ensure Shōma's victory, regardless of how it inconveniences others. And as Kurosu would nevertheless do anything during his non-working hours, due to his greed, that could be unfavorable to him, he would at some occasions hire Rinne to impede him. 

He later meets Ichigo, the human reincarnation of Rinne’s mother who was a former Platinum License Holder Shinigami. Since she never had the chance to support her own son in his growth, she proposed Shoma to help him in his assignments by giving him advises, to which he agrees as he developed a crush on her.
