Yoshimoto Shizuka is the 3rd girlfriend of Aijou Rentarou in The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, Really Love You / Kimi no koto ga daidaidaidaidai suki na 100-nin no Kanojo by Nozawa Yukiko.
Yoshimoto Shizuka is a petite 15 or 16 year old girl with fluffy, waist-length hair that is charcoal-blue in colour. Her small size tends to cause people to think she is a young child, despite being the same age as Rentarou and the others.
Shizuka is rather timid especially given her rather quiet or mute voice which makes her rather distant from other people. However, ever since she met Rentarou she has become braver even willing to sacrifice her own safety to help Hakari out. She is also the most modest of Renatrou's girlfriends as she refused to peep on him when he was taking a bath and even tried to stop them from doing so.
For a long time, Yoshimoto Shizuka has trouble communicating with people verbally. The origin of this issue is still unknown, but to overcome it, she uses books talking to people and because of that she got bullied a lot in her middle school.
The problem was so severe that at one point even her mother hit her and try to make her speak.
To avoid talking to people most of the time, in high school she joined a library staff where we can continue reading books without talking to anyone.
One day, Rentarou, Hakari, and Karane went to the school's library to search for some books. While the two girls looked for cooking books, Rentarou tried to find something to read himself. He then met Shizuka when she reached to some books on a high self. After the soulmate shock, they have a short conservation and Rentarou asked Shizuka about book recommendations. She found a lot of books for him but because of the library's rules, Rentarou could not borrow them. Shizuka then gave him her personal favourite novel, which Rentarou finished in one night.
The next day, Rentarou returned the book to Shizuka and noticed that she prepared the next volume for him. Then they had a talk in which Shizuka explained her difficulties in communicating. Rentarou borrowed Shizuka's book again and in one week, he converted it into digital format.
Rentarou then suggested Shizuka installed a text-to-speech app and used it to talk with people using the book's content. The first thing Shizuka said with the app was she loved Rentarou, which he accepted. Then Rentarou introduced Shizuka to Hakari and Karane, officially making her his 3rd girlfriend.
In Chapter 11 Shizuka along with Hakari, Karane, and Nano were made into "Kissing Zombies" due to accident caused by Kusuri thus forcing Rentarou to run in the school from the "Zombified" girls. She tripped as she tried to chase him thus putting Rerntarou's protective nature ino overdrive to aid her thus causing him to be "caught" by her and subjected to a long kiss. Eventually he broke out of it and put her on a coat hanger until Kusuri
Shizuka is the weakest and frailest among the girls. However, combined with her cuteness, she is able to make these her strong point. Like in chapter 16, where Shizuka's cuteness and fraility was able to defy the natural instinct of Hahari's dog.
- Shizuka's birthdate is 8th August.
- Rentarou and Shizuka have kissed four times so far as of Chapter 29.
- Shizuka is the first girl to kiss Rentarou solo (Rentarou's first kiss was with Hakari and Karane at the same time)
