The 3rd of the Hulu brothers, Sanwa arrived at Portia when the brothers came with their grandmother. Due to his skills with scissors, he opened up a barbershop in Portia. The word on the street is that whatever hair style the customer wants, Sanwa can make it happen.


Personal SummaryEdit

Sanwa was born on Autumn of Day 15 and is the third of the Hulu Brothers. At some point, Sanwa, his brothers, and his grandmother, Yeye, moved to Portia. Despite being colorblind, Sanwa is renowned for his skills with the scissors learning to style hair after visiting Walnut Groove. Sanwa became adept in hairstyling within 10 years. After competing in the local hairstyling competition, many of the citizens mocked his colorblindness, even accidentally dying Remington's hair green at one point. This caused Sanwa to stop pursuing his career as a barber. However, he was given Color-blind Correction Glasses to help with his condition; as a result, he reopened his barbershop once more.

Sanwa loves to eat vegetarian foods, such as Fruit Salad and Vegetable Salad. Sanwa dislikes eating hot pot during the Winter Solstice and on dinner dates due to the spiciness of the dish. He once believed a friend who told him that the hot pot was not spicy, only to strain the relationship between the two. Sanwa also dislikes the texture of noodles, regardless of how it looked and smelled.
