Appeared in Sengoku Rance

Hara Shouji is the head of the Hara House. He is a gentle ruler, and is loved by his people. However, he doesn't have much confidence in himself. He is married to Akihime due to political reasons, and he truly loves her, though Akihime doesn't seem to share the sentiment; something which eventually lead to their downfall.

There is a rumor that his character design is based on Hara Mitsugu, a famous person in the Japanese baseball circle. This may tie in with the pun for Red Hell.

Appearances Edit

Sengoku Rance Edit

In response to his wife's demand, Shouji accepted Oda's war invitation unwillingly.

After Oda conquered Hara House, Shouji asked Akihime to commit suicide in order to avoid disgrace within a defeated family to fall upon her, though Aki strongly refused and eventually asked him to just divorce her instead. Shouji snapped and started attacking Akihime out of disappointment. Unfortunately, Rance barges in to save the day by capturing Shouji once and for all. Alternatively, if you demand the Hara to surrender, then Shouji will be presented with the head of Aki, and will subsequently go mad, striking at his generals in a frenzy before being killed.

Hara Shouji can be added to the troops by a negotiation with him in the prison.

If he has been recruited after you change his feeling towards Rance to normal he will ask you if you can give him Aki back.


  • Being married to Akihime means he is Choushin's brother-in-law.
  • He is mentioned in Kichikuou Rance (by a different name) as being killed by Nobunaga and having his head displayed like a trophy.
