He also enjoined listening to the flute and after getting some money doing odd jobs, took lessons to learn how to play it so he may spread the sweet sound to others. Shinosuke joined the military later in life to learn more about the starfighters and look at the Nekovalkyrja in the Star Army Uniforms. He volunteered to have a new body made as a Yamataian so he could attempt to still be of use in a military mostly comprised of android cat girls. Not that he had any complaints about them.
