Shin Kanzato (神郷 慎, Kanzato Shin) is the protagonist in the anime series Persona -trinity soul-.
- Persona -trinity soul-: Protagonist
Shin Kanzato is the younger brother of Ryo Kanzato and older brother to Jun Kanzato. He is a second-year student at Naginomori Gakuen High School. He always carries a pendant in the shape of a feather, which is a memento of his father. After his parents and little sister died, he and his brothers were under the care of their relatives in Tokyo, and ten years later they returned to their home town Ayanagi. As the series goes on, nearly everyone close to Shin seems to be taken away either by Ayane or through Death (e.g. both brothers and Kanaru respectively). Shin also has an interest in art, making clay models and is frequently seen sketching. Strangely, his art pieces resemble Personas and in one case, Igor. In the first episode, he awakens his own Persona after ten years of slumbering, and one of the enigmatic Outsiders (rogue Persona users) also commented that Shin's Persona is of "Special A-Level". His Persona's special ability is being able to sever Personas from other people with a large sword. This makes him an appealing target to Kujou of the Marebito.
- On the first episode Shin draws a picture of Ryo's Persona, Cain on the back of a comment card at the Bamboo Family Diner. Jun asked Shin if what Shin drew is what attacks Shin in his dreams, Shin tells Jun it kills him. It is a direct reference to the story of Cain and Abel in which Cain, the older brother, kills his younger brother Abel. It also reflects Ryo's and Shin's relationship, having Cain and Abel as their Personas respectively.
- In one of the episodes, Shin shows his fear of ghosts and scares easily when these are mentioned, just like Yukari Takeba in Persona 3.
- He is the only protagonist in the Persona series that cannot use multiple Personas.
