Hanashima Shijin is better than all DmC characters. Actual character development, no plothole personality,genuine rage issues that properly get resolved, a proper romantic interest (with its own problems because Shijin is so socially awkward, tends to be played for laughs but it's still a problem when at 13 your idea of romance is hugging and friendship speeches) and actual disabilities that are fought hard for to overcome (In SHijins case, being a complete mute due to having her throat cut at a young age in a raid by the BBEG organization).
And then to think that this character is one of the three leads in a horribly dark alt universe of Naruto. (How dark? Sasuke lost his eyes, Naruto got the cursemark, Gaara died, Kumo and Kono are almost back at war and Tsunade joined Orochimaru. Jeraia is MIA, likely dead. And this is because our group beat up Naruto. Oops)
