While Shinya wasn't a Gary Stu by any means (he's been outfought and outplayed on several occasions), he was much more of a driving force in this series than Akane, and his mentorship over her helped her accomplish what little development she received. The pull-and-tug relationship they share as partners is more or less in Shinya's favor, as he is an all around better detective and his proactive method of dealing with criminals proves to be much more effective than Akane's milquetoast attitude and girlscout morals.

If you want me to be honest, it was kind of painful to watch Akane get in Shinya's way over and over, only for him to finally shake her off and do things his way anyway. He really didn't learn anything from her, and given her several major failures, I suppose that is a good thing.
