Two-Barrel Shige was the greatest bear hunter of Iwate Prefecture.
They start to track a bear, thinking it's Akakabuto, but it's actually one of his cubs. Unfortunately, the bear ambushes them and wounds Shige deadly. He drags himself to the Fujiwara inn. He begs someone to go help his friend and his son, not caring about his own condition. Gohē Takeda shows up and recognizes the other hunter. Once in the past, Gohē had tried to tell Shige that he is too young and unexperienced to hunt down Akakabuto and now dying Shige admits it was true. Daisuke's Mother had called an ambulance but it was too late and Shige died.
- Shige's full name in the anime is Shigematsu.
