Shinjiro Kuso (空操 信二郎, Kūsō Shinjirō?) is the husband of Miyoko Kuso and the father of Dan Kuso who is a typical working dad where he works for a businessman.


Shinjiro has short black hair, brown eyes, a tall figure and his appearance seems younger than his real age, much like his wife Miyoko Kuso.

He is often seen wearing a white shirt with a blue tie, black trousers, sometimes he wears a black vest as well.


Much like his family, Shinjiro is young at heart, a relaxed parent who allows Dan Kuso to do as he pleases. He is shown to be calm and caring. He is very fond of puddings, a trait which he shares with his son, and sometimes he can be carefree and clumsy as well. Despite all that, he is a hard worker who appears to be the breadwinner of the family, and at times proves himself to be mature, understanding and caring.

Because of all of their similarities, he has a good, strong bond with his wife and son.
