Sotaro Shiga is one of the potential liars from Liar! Uncover the Truth.
Warning: Spoiler Alert
Sotaro was originally an orphan and when he was six, he was adopted by Tetsuya and Yuko Shiga since they couldn't have children (Yuko explained that they chose him because he had the best grades). Because of that, he devoted himself into becoming a doctor and became obedient to his father's expectations.
When he became an adult, he got married at his parent's urging but his wife had an affair and divorced him. He then married Rumi, a famous model, but she left him and he was clueless on why; it was because of his 'chauvinistic' views where he expected to become a homemaker and spent more time at the hospital than with her.
Somewhere around that time, he encountered Itaru at a ramen restaurant and they instantly competed on who can eat the spiciest ramen (both of them end up ordering the spiciest bowl and couldn't handle it) and they've been bitter rivals since then.
Sometime after his second divorce, his father arranged for him to meet a potential wife; however, he started to question his way of following his parents' opinion. That night while working on the computer, he came across an online ad for a match-making party and filled out a survey out of curiosity. Before he knew it, he was registered and the date of the party was the day before he was to meet the potential bride his father set up. He'd decided to attend the event as a way to gain a new perspective and for once do something on his own.
At the party, he was completely out of his element and distractedly bumped into you. Upon seeing you, he found you very attractive. He then picked your card by mistake and saw that it said your skill was house chores. Beautiful and domestic, he couldn't believe his luck. He kept your card and left the event before it started as he already found his ideal woman in you.

Sotaro has slender grey eyes and a neat black hair with bangs.
- Work Attire: Sotaro wears a white labcoat over dark blue scrubs, and a stethoscope around his neck.
- Business Attire: Sotaro wears a black suit with a dark blue dress shirt, and a thin grey tie with a indigo and light grey stripe.
- Casual Attire: Sotaro wears a blue buttoned up shirt with crosshatch patterns and a white collar, a navy blue blazer, khaki pants, and navy blue loafers.
Sotaro is a workaholic as he is almost always busy, including your first meeting at the matchmaking party when he left almost as soon as your arrived due to an emergency at the hospital. He may not speak much, but he has made his intentions clear with you.
Although he doesn't look like it, he can be very competitive, especially towards Itaru whether it's eating the spiciest ramen or winning your heart.
It's because of his workaholic and distant nature that it cost him his two marriages. The way he views a wife is basically the same as he views a maid: he expects her to clean, cook, and keep the house in order. This might stem from the fact that he's never witness a loving relationship between his parents, and that this is what his father viewed.
Upon meeting you, he only wanted to marry you because you were the ideal wife for him, but he didn't develop feelings for you until you came over to his apartment for the first time; he got distracted with his work and accidentally left you alone but instead of getting mad, you were more understanding and admired his hard work. His feelings for you intensified after he learned that Itaru was interested in you, which caused him to experience emotions he's never felt before.
