Mashiba is boy who becomes interested in and joins Ishida Shouya's group of friends upon learning they are making a movie. He is eager to be the lead actor and is considered handsome and talented enough to do so. Mashiba was lonely as a child and the other children took him for granted and bullied him. Now, he is completely intolerant of bullies in any form, and while generally calm and level-headed, he reacts violently to any random act of bullying he sees.

Mashiba is a tall, rather lanky boy with dark brown eyes, and light reddish-orange hair that he wears with several longer locks over his forehead and eyes.
He is usually seen wearing the school uniform, which is a white polo shirt without the black tie. Outside of school, he is seen to be dressed quite smartly.
Mashiba is a friendly person throughout the entire story. He tends to be fair, very easy going and is not afraid to stand up for others in need.
