Shingo actually shares many beliefs with Takeshi, but whenever they watch other battles, they stay away from one another so that people won't mistake them as friends. There were also times that he supported his teammate for the Night Kids' sake, like the battle against Seiji Iwaki and his Evo IV. In 5th Stage, Takumi remebered and mentioned that Shingo lost to Takumi.

- In Initial D 5th Stage, Shingo is a dark-skinned blonde.
- It might be slightly hinted that he may be a fan of Mugen Motorsports, a Honda Car Tuning Specialist.
- When he made his first appearence intimidating Iketani's S13 in the anime, it appears that the Mugen RNR wheel is painted in Metallic Silver. But later in the anime, especially when racing with Takumi in the Gum Tape Deathmatch in Episode 15 of First Stage, his Mugen RNR wheels suddenly became Black with a Red Trim. In the Initial D Arcade Stage video games, his Mugen RNR Rims are again only shown in Metallic Silver.
