In Shadows House, voice actor Reiji Kawashima plays Patrick, a Shadow, and Ricky, his “living doll” servant. Patrick is described as having a haughty but delicate personality, such that he often relies on his servant and seeks Ricky’s opinion in all matters, while Ricky is described as being confident, self-assured, and always ready to overwhelm his master with his resourcefulness.



Serialized since 2018 in Shueisha’s Weekly Young JumpShadows House is set in a mysterious, Western-style mansion populated by a clan of “Shadows” who imitate the trappings of human aristocracy. The Shadows have no faces of their own, so they are attended by “living dolls” who act as their caretakers. The story follows Emilyko, a living doll, and Kate Shadow, the Shadow whom Emilyko serves.
