Ekaterina Krachevna Kankaeva
Chief Shigeo Shiba
Now in charge of Division 2's mechanics, he muses over the good old days where his involvement has done a lot of good work for the country. He also helps Akira get used to life in the division.
- Mythology Gag: His talk with Akira over how labors aren't super robots is similar to Sakaki's talk with Noa.
- Passing the Torch/You Are in Command Now: Shige's in charge of the SV2 maintenance teams by the time the live-action series start.
Another veteran mechanic alongside Shiba, he is currently the second-in-command of the division. Buchiyama is in charge of assembling the mechanics of Division 2 whenever Sakaki isn't around.
