When Daisuke told that Zanark was the eleventh member of the Strongest Eleven In History and that he will play in the match, Shindou was surprised and a bit angry. After he saw Meia and Giris being their opponent, Shindou asked himself what their skills were and went to the field with his team.
When the match started against Giru, he made several orders and also used Kami no Takuto but the orders and Kami no Takuto didn't work since the team wasn't working together and ignored Shindou's orders.

Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy
In episode 1, he walked the line set up in the front of Raimon. As Tenma and Shinsuke were both too excited, Shindou said that they should calm down and as Tenma said something, Shindou was looking back with flashback to the Eito match. Later, he was chosen by Kuroiwa Ryuusei to be a member of Inazuma Japan but he was surprised that only he, Tenma and Tsurugi were the only three that were chosen from Raimon and that they didn't know the other members.
Later, they went to the change room and changed to the Inazuma Japan uniform and said something to all the members. The exhibition match started against Teikoku Gakuen, Shindou received the pass from Tenma and passed it to Tsurugi. He also used Kami no Takuto FI but nobody listen to his orders and was surprised that the members couldn't play soccer was seen to be annoyed by it. As Tenma encouraged him, he used Kami no Takuto FI again to help Tenma and Tsurugi and they scored with Fire Tornado DD, making the score 10-1 for Teikoku. As Shindou, Tenma and Tsurugi were celebrating the goal, the match ended with the win of Teikoku which surprised them. After, they shook hands with Mikado Haruma, the captain of Teikoku, but Mikado was angry and said that they were worse, in which Shindou cried and said that this was worse team in which Tenma was worried about him.
In episode 2, Shindou, Tenma and Tsurugi walked to the place where they were going to practice and stay. As Shindou explained everything, they arrived at the practice and Shindou was worried about Tenma since he got hit by Nozaki's ball. After that, the other members introduced themself and when Shindou heard that all the members haven't played soccer once, he got annoyed and angry and asked the trainer why this members were chosen if they can't even play soccer in which the trainer replied that he should ask the coach, who came in and introduced the managers, Mizukawa Minori and Sorano Aoi. Tenma started to explain what soccer was, in which Minaho said that his hissatsu was his brain in which Shindou put his hand against his head and couldn't believe it.
After that, they started practicing and having a break after practicing a bit, Shindou was seen resting out as well. After the break, Tenma explained more about soccer like dribbling and control where Shindou was just listening to Tenma. When Tenma was done, he was seen shooting balls to Ibuki, who couldn't stop them in which Shindou looked at him and started to think. When practice ended and everyone was tired, he was seen to be angry again as his hand turned into a fist and walked away which made Tenma worried about him. When they were in their rooms, Shindou asked if Tenma could go with him after he is done in which Tenma agreed. With Tsurugi and Tenma, Shindou went to Kuroiwa Ryuusei and asked why those eight players were in the national team. As Kuroiwa replied to him, Shindou said that they will play with only them three, Tsurugi as forward, Tenma as midfielder and Shindou himself as defender and when the opponent shoot to the goal, he will block the ball in which he was angry again and made Ibuki angry as well, who was about to practice when he heard the conversation.
As Kuroiwa somehow agreed and walked away, Tenma asked Shindou if it will be alright with playing the match with three members, in which Shindou replied that the coach didn't understand soccer. Ibuki started to yell at him and said that the Japan goalkeeper was him, in which Shindou replied that he couldn't keep at all. Ibuki said that he will able to do it with practicing and asked Tsurugi to shoot at him, so he can stop it in which Shindou disagreed and said that he will shoot at him. Shindou used Fortissimo and Ibuki failed to stop it and became injured by it in which Shindou said that he is worse and Ibuki said that he should go on.
The next day, they continued to practice again after they heard that their first opponent was Fire Dragon. After practice, Shindou talked with Tenma and Tsurugi about the upcoming match, in which Tenma still disagreed with playing with only them three and said that he felt that the other were improving, in which Shindou replied that he didn't feel it at all. The next day, Tenma tried to talk with Shindou again and tried to change Shindou's mind but failed to do so and made Shindou more angry and became also angry at Tenma and said that this were the nationals, so they should play their very best. The match between Inazuma Japan and Fire Dragon started with Shindou being placed as defensive midfielder. As the match started, Shindou became annoyed again when Matatagi dribbled ahead and when the ball was stolen from him. When the opponent charged ahead to the Inazuma Japan goal, Shindou stood for the goal which made Ibuki angry. Lee Chung-Yun shot and Shindou blocked the ball which made Tenma happy at first. Ibuki was angry and Shindou saw it but he didn't care at all which left Tenma worried about both of them.
In episode 3, after he blocked the shoot, Ibuki was still angry at him. Shindou was surprised that the shoot had much power but that his timing was perfect to stop it. As Tsurugi had a flashback, Shindou was seen in the flashback saying that they will play with only them three. When a member of Fire Dragon shot at the goal, Shindou stopped the shoot again, which made Ibuki angry again. As Shindou was standing there, Tenma had a flashback about the previous night. Shindou said in the flashback that Tenma and Tsurugi should bring the ball up and that he will protect the goal. Tenma was surprised in which Shindou stood up and said that he will stop Fire Dragon's shoots. Then, the flashback ended and Shindou passed the ball to Tenma. When Tsurugi lost the ball, Fire Dragon started to counterattack and Fire Dragon shot again. Shindou stopped it again which made Ibuki more furious. Ibuki said that said that Shindou should go out of the way but Shindou didn't listen.
When Tenma was sliding tackled by two members of Fire Dragon, Shindou was worried about him. After that, Shindou went talking with Tenma and Tsurugi. As Matatagi wanted to join them, Tenma and Tsurugi agreed which shocked Shindou. After all, Shindou agreed too because Tenma and Tsurugi agreed. When Lee Chung-Yun shot with his Rapid Fire, he let the ball go to Ibuki but Ibuki failed to stop the ball, making the score 1-0. As the second half started, Shindou stood for the goal again which made Ibuki furious again. As Matatagi finally passed to Tetsukado, Shindou was surprised that their teammates finally played alongside Matatagi. After Tenma scored the first goal with God Wind. Lee Chung-Yun shot again with Rapid Fire. Shindou stopped it this time with his new hissatsu, Einsatz, and passed the ball to Tenma. At the end, Inazuma Japan won with 2-1 with Tsurugi making the final goal with Devil Burst.
In episode 4, Shindou was watching the first match of Inazuma Japan again along with Tsurugi, Tenma and Aoi. Later, Shindou was seen standing behind Tenma along with Tsurugi when Tenma hold a speech. The next day, Shindou went along with Tenma to their training but only Nozaki Sakura, Matatagi and Tsurugi were there. Shindou asked where the others were in which Nozaki replied that they weren't going to practice at all and Matatagi added that it was because of the match. It surprised Shindou and Tenma and when Kuroiwa came, Shindou became angry again of forming this team. Later, they went practicing and Nozaki showed her moves. Then, Shindou recognized her as a world class gymnastics ace which surprised Nozaki that Shindou knew her. Then, Nozaki said that she will keep training with playing soccer to play in the best gymnastics team, in which Shindou was dissappointed. When Nozaki ran off to be keeper, Shindou began to wonder again why she left her gymnastics team and joined the soccer team. Nozaki was scared for stopping the shoot which made Shindou dissappointed again. And as Matatagi started to practice to dribble in which he made a long gap between him and the ball, Shindou was disappointed again and said that this was no use to dribble.
As both Nozaki and Matatagi went practicing there dribbling, Shindou said that Matatagi and Nozaki could be useful but it was still hard to be able to play in the match. As practice ended and Shindou and Tsurugi walked back, Shindou started a conversation with Tsurugi. Shindou went talking to Kuroiwa about his plan for the next match but Kuroiwa disagreed and Shindou left. The next morning, Shindou was at the training field already along with Matatagi and Nozaki. As Tenma went to search for the other members, Shindou started to practice with Matatagi and Nozaki. After practice, he went to talk with Gouenji Shuuya and asked for a back up team but Shindou disagreed. As Shindou left, the trainer came in and started to talk with Gouenji. The trainer said that he couldn't take it anymore and said that Kuroiwa was planning to take over the world with soccer. As the trainer said that and continued, Shindou overheard the whole conversation and began to wonder again.
The next day, finally the whole team was there, Shindou heard that Tenma had emailed them to come to the training field today and that was the reason why they were here. Then, Kuroiwa came and said that the members had to do a test if they wanted to leave the Japan team. After hearing that, Shindou was shocked and couldn't believe it.
In episode 5, while the eight members were considering whether to take the test or not, Shindou stated the eight members didn't come to play soccer, and told them to take the test and get out of the team, which irritated Ibuki. While Tenma still tried to persuade Shindou that the eight members could play soccer with them, Tetsukado stated that he would take the test and said that Shindou would be happier without them around. As Shindou had already prepared, he went to the stadium but he was shocked at the view in front of him.
When the others arrived the stadium and saw the spectators, Tenma rushed to his side and asked him why, to which Shindou replied that Kuroiwa was the one who called the audience and news reporters to watch the withdrawal test, as Kuroiwa actually called them to see the Inazuma Japan's abilities, and he ran up with the others to watch the withdrawal test, and he kept silent most of the time. In the end of the withdrawal test, Kuroiwa told Shindou that the successful shoots of each member showed the powers of supportive words from supporters and friend alike, to which Shindou did not reply at all.
In episode 6, Shindou oversaw the training and when a ball that Ibuki blocked out flew to him, Ibuki argued that he didn't need his help, in which Shindou retorted that he was only doing what was necessary for victory. While the others discussed about their strategy to use against Big Waves, Shindou stated they didn't have enough time for that.
While they were training before the match started, Ibuki blocked a normal shoot from Tsurugi and stated that he won't allow scoring anymore, to which Shindou retorted that it would be different when they are having a real match. When the match was about to start, Shindou stood in front of Ibuki, and he retorted that Shindou's position was too far behind, while Shindou stated that it was just the right position.
After seeing some efforts the team was paying, Shindou thought to himself that at least the team would work well for victories. He then called Tenma to pass to him, and used Kami no Takuto and commanded Sakura, Kusaka, Matatagi and Tenma to pass the ball and at the end, to Tsurugi, who used Bicycle Sword. He then used Kami no Takuto once again but it got cut off when Big Waves used Suck Out on Kusaka. Shindou was shocked, and Kuroiwa stated that it was Shindou's mistake for showing Kami no Takuto too early. Shindou ran back to the defence and stole the ball, and he used Kami no Takuto again, only to be cut off after Sakura passed to Matatagi, when Big Waves used Suck Out again. Shindou tried to use Kami no Takuto again, and failed again after Tenma's passing was cut off. The trio gathered to discuss, and Shindou stated that it was strange since Big Waves was supposed to be a highly offensive team, and concluded that Kami no Takuto was entirely locked.
When Big Waves broke Inazuma Japan's defence again, Shindou rushed back to block Cole LaRuze, but Ibuki shouted to him and distracted him. When Ibuki failed to block Megalodon, Shindou demanded him if he understand the difference between practice and match, in which Ibuki only gave out a frustrated grunt.
After the match resumed, Shindou blocked a ball and passed it to Tenma, who was about to pass to Matatagi but get blocked by Sakura, who failed to dribble up. Shindou blocked back the ball and told Sakura not to stand too far away from her position. When Kusaka passed to Sakura, a few Big Waves players targeted her, and she tried to pass to Shindou but got blocked. Shindou attempted to steal back the ball but it was passed to Cole, who scored another goal with Megalodon. When Cole was about to use Megalodon again, Shindou rushed towards him and kept on trying to block him, without any effort. Shindou was also shown to be little shocked when Ibuki pulled out Wild Dunk. When Ibuki asked Shindou if he saw his hissatsu, he said that it was only something the goalkeeper ought to do.
In episode 7, Shindou walked back to the defence position, which irriated Ibuki because Shindou still didn't acknowledge him. Tenma asked Shindou to take a look on the team, that the team has fired up, but Shindou told him that Kami no Takuto was totally locked, and asked him what he could do about it, and he agreed with Tenma's solution, saying that this is the only way.
After the match resumed, he received a pass from Ibuki, but stated that Ibuki's pass is still far from good. When he was about to get blocked, Shindou used Presto Turn V2 and passed the ball to Tenma, but the ball got blocked by Sakura, who tried to use hissatsu to showcase herself, but was blocked. Shindou tackled the ball out of the field and demanded what Sakura was doing. When Sakura told the others that she felt dizzy and was sorry that she caused trouble, and Tsurugi suggested that they could only switch positions, Shindou stated that they should have prepared substitute players, and glanced accusingly at Kuroiwa. After Tenma has a temporary conversation with Sakura again, Shindou told him to go back to his position.
When Cole commanded all his teammates except goalkeeper to offence, Shindou thought that just to keept their defence was already hard enough and what they should do, and he tackled a player but the ball got back to Big Waves again. Shindou was also shown to be a little shocked when Ibuki was about to block the normal shoot and Megalodon, but told Ibuki to throw the ball back to the field immediately after he blocked Megalodon. When Matatagi scored a goal with Parkour Attack, he was shocked that Matatagi used a hissatsu to score a goal. When Sakura got trapped by Suck Out, she asked Shindou to use Kami no Takuto. Shindou told her that it was impossible, but she insisted. Shindou used Kami no Takuto, but Sakura failed to reach it. Shindou scolded her that she may might be able to pass if she did not thought about jumping higher than his command. When Tenma encouraged Sakura, Shindou commented that it was truly Tenma's style. Sakura asked him to do this again, Shindou used Kami no Takuto FI instead, and questioned her if she could really follow the tactic, and was shown to be impressed when Sakura succeeded. After the match ended, Shindou wondered if the team actually possess horrifying potential, and looked to Kuroiwa for answer, but he only walked away accompanied with Mizukawa.
In episode 8, Shindou joined the defence group during the practise. When Tenma commented that it is possible to access to the world stage with their current members, Shindou challenged him, saying that they are still newcomers despite all the trainings. Tenma brought out some examples about their process, but Shindou retorted, stating that the abilities of Manabe, Minaho and Morimura remained unknown, and Kusaka was still unable to dribble. Tenma tried to told him that it was not true, but Shindou told him that the world stage is not as simple as he thought, and then he walked away.
At night, Shindou also returned to the centre after hearing about Kusaka's arrest, and heard about Kusaka's background story along with others. When Tenma tried to talk with Coach Funaki, Shindou demanded him why he wanted to cover up Kusaka. Tenma remembered what he saw the last night, and simply ran away to find the co-coach, leaving Shindou puzzled.
On the next day, the match between Inazuma Japan and Shamshir began, and Shindou once again went to stand in front of Ibuki. When the members of Shamshir whizzed past Inazuma Japan's defence easily, Shindou used Einsatz (notablely that this is the first time Shindou used it to steal a ball), but got blocked immediately. Shindou was also shown to be displeased when Kusaka beat up some members of Shamshir.
In episode 9, after witnessing Kusaka losing his temper again, Shindou told Tenma not to let him play in the next half-match, and Tenma was shocked about this. Shindou continued to explain that if his violence caused the match to stop, then everything would be over. After Tenma tried to reject this on Kusaka's behalf, Shindou asked the others what should they do in this current situation. Manabe and Minaho agreed to this, while Sakura doubted about this option. After listening to Tenma's pleading to let everybody on the team to play the match, Shindou demanded him if they could win in this situation, and Tenma, unable to answer, stated he understood.
After the match ended, Tsurugi stated as the matches progressed, everybody is closer to one another, and their middle point is Tenma, to which Shindou only said an 'ah' as a reply.
In episode 10, Inazuma Japan was training again with Shindou only watching his teammates practicing while he was standing next to the goal. Shindou looked at Ibuki when he failed to stop Tsurugi's shoot. After practice ended, Shindou walked towards Tetsukado and called him, making his teammates curious. He said to Tetsukado that his moves have gotten much sharper but that he need to improve more as his speed was dropping. He adviced that Tetsukado should move more to the front and left the field. Because of the advice that Shindou had given, Tenma and Sorano Aoi were happy that Shindou gave an advice while Tsurugi was smiling too and Tetsukado confused.
The next day, Inazuma Japan started to train in the Black Room. Kuroiwa explained the Black Room and Shindou trained with the falling steel bars and surfing on the water while jumping to shoot the ball. The Raimon trio easily did the trainings while the others were struggling with them.
In episode 11, Inazuma Japan was training again for their upcoming match against Mach Tiger. Shindou noticed that Konoha was missing while the others were training and said that to Tenma, who was surprised that she wasn't there. The next day, Konoha had left a note behind that she was leaving Inazuma Japan. Tenma and four others were going to search for her while Shindou was staying at the camp. He and Tsurugi were practing together and Tsurugi asked what Shindou thought about Konoha. Shindou replied that she was chosen for Inazuma Japan by Kuroiwa with a reason but with the reason he didn't know.
In episode 12, Inazuma Japan was seen doing some exercises to warm up before they started to train. In the practice, Shindou received a pass from Sakura and Shindou predicted his shoot course first and then he shot towards the goal. Ibuki caught the ball and asked how that was but Shindou replied that he would be using a difficult shoot course next time.
The next day, the semi-finals started and Shindou used Einsatz to steal the ball from Tamugan Jar. After he stole the ball, he found it strange that no one from the opposing was moving towards them and passed the ball to Tenma as he asked for it. As the ball was stolen, Shindou quickly ran back to the goal but Ibuki caught the ball at time. Later, the ball was stolen again and Bark Sepakro dodged both Minaho and Manabe but Shindou sliding tackled him and the ball went outside the field. He said to Minaho and Manabe that one fault in their defense could end the match for them as the offense and defense could change in a split-second.
Inazuma Japan was struggling against Mach Tiger with their counters. Shindou said that the only to score a goal was to use Kami no Takuto with higher precision, in which Tenma replied that he should do it. The match resumed and Tenma stole the ball back and told Shindou that it was time. Shindou used Kami no Takuto FI and made the first line to Tetsukado. He made the second line to Sakura and the third to Tenma again. When Tenma was troubling against Napa Ladam, he ordered Tenma to pass the ball. Shindou used Fortissimo but it failed to score a goal as it was blocked by Udom Keawchay's Killer Elbow. After Matatagi's Parkour Attack was blocked by Death Scythe Middle, Shindou ran back to the defense. However, the defense was broken through and Shindou said that they won't be able to make it and Tamugan scored the first goal with Ivory Crash, leaving Shindou irritated behind.
Shindou was surprised when Kusaka changed into Berserker Mode and confessed to Konoha that he loves her. After Konoha successfully used Konoha Roll and passed the ball to Tenma, Shindou used Kami no Takuto FI again and made the first line to Sakura. Then, he made the second line to Matatagi and the third to Tsurugi. Inazuma Japan tied to score with Kusaka's Kyoubou Head and both team were struggling against each other with Shindou orders in the center of Inazuma Japan.
In episode 13, the second half started and Inazuma Japan began to struggle again against Mach Tiger with their new skills. Soon, the score became 2-1 due to Tamugan's Ivory Crash, being too fast for Ibuki's Wild Dunk. Shindou glared at Ibuki for not stopping the shoot and walked back to his position. He was worried about Tsurugi when he and Bark injured each other by kicking their legs. He glared again at Ibuki while he was able to stop Ivory Crash with Wild Dunk. Later, Shindou received the ball from Matatagi and was ordered by Manabe to make a back pass to Tsurugi. Then, Tsurugi passed to Tenma, who scored the winning goal with God Wind. After the goal, Inazuma Japan won with 3-2.
In episode 14, he was seen practicing with Ibuki and ordered him to go on to stop every shoot that Tsurugi made. Then, they heard that they would have a practice match the next day. The next day, they all were wondering who their opponent was, surprised that it was Hakuryuu's and his team called Resistance Japan. Shindou, Tenma and Tsurugi were able to cope up with them, however, the others weren't. Shindou tried to stop the shoot chain between Hakuryuu's White Hurricane and Yukimura Hyouga's Panther Blizzard with his leg but failed to do so. Later, he passed the ball to Tetsukado as the others were marked but since Tetsukado was injured at his ankle, he wasn't able to move well. Instead of Tetsukado, Kishibe Taiga picked up the ball. At the end of the match, Resistance Japan won with 3-1, making his other teammates surprised and shocked about the abilities of the other team and stated that it was the level of Shindou, Tsurugi and Tenma.
In episode 15, Shindou, Tenma and Tsurugi were only members practising at the pitch; all the others went to the Black Room instead. After listening to Ibuki's explanation to why he chose the position goalkeeper, Shindou stated that he is absolutely not approriate for being a goalkeeper. Later in the meeting, Shindou commented that no matter how good the defense is, it would be meaningless if the goalkeeper is useless, which irriated Ibuki and he promptly went back to practise. Later in another practise, Ibuki told him that he could keep out any shoots, while Shindou asked him if simply catching the ball mean being goalkeeper, to which he could not answer.
In episode 16, Shindou was shown to be more frustrated when Gold Fever scored another goal against Ibuki. After Manabe and Minaho failed to block Maxim Adrov, Shindou tackled him and stole the ball back. While Ibuki was still frustrated, Shindou thought about only when will Ibuki order him to defend the goal together, and if he couldn't understand this point, he wouldn't be able to play soccer.
After Gold Fever was barely kept away from the goal, Ruslan Kasimov tried to kick it back to the goal, and Ibuki asked Shindou for help, causing him to smile at his realization. Shindou then used Einsatz to keep the ball out. Shindou then told Ibuki that he finally understood that the goal is defended by everybody, not himself only. Shindou then stated that he entrusted the goal to him, and told Tenma he would start helping in offense. He then stole the throw-in ball and passed it to Kusaka. When Ibuki succeeded in using a new hissatsu, he called out to Tenma and Sakura. He was shocked when Ibuki thanked Manabe and Minaho for his new hissatsu, even though the duo commented that it sounded more like comlimenting himself, and everybody laughed.
In episode 17, he was about to pass to Tenma, but was blocked by Dmitri Sobirov. Shindou, like the others, were depressed when they were scored one more goal, but was encouraged at what the others said, and he was shown to be impressed when Ibuki encouraged everybody to continue. Shindou was also shocked to hear Tenma suggesting to take 2 points together, but approved of the plan. After Manabe, Minaho and Tetsukado failed to block the third forward of Storm Wolf, he also called out to Konoha, who unleashed some aura of Soul and tackled the player, which shocked him and all the others, including Konoha herself. Shindou, like all the other members, were shocked to see Storm Wolf players revealed to be aliens, and the spaceship above the stadium.
In episode 18, Shindou, along with the others, heard about Grand Celesta Galaxy and Earth Eleven. After they returned to Odaiba Soccer Garden, Shindou revealed that Kuroiwa is actually Kageyama Reiji. His proclamation was proven true as Kuroiwa talked about how he survive his "death" because of a forbidden medicine, which shocked all the others. After Kuroiwa explained about Soul, he told Tenma that it is a matter that deals with Earth's fate, and Tenma agreed that they will go to the space.
In episode 19, he met Ichikawa Zanakurou along with all the others, but thought to himself that Ichikawa is only another newbie. However, he was impressed by Ichikawa's skills as he passed Tetsukado and Sakura easily. Later he had a short talk with Ibuki, who was uncertain about his abilities as a goalkeeper, that whether he could really defend the goal of the Earth. Shindou then told him that someone told him that "Soccer is a symphony played by eleven people", and that if he was scored a goal, they will take back a score. He also played in the match of Raimon versus the newly formed Earth Eleven. After the match ended, he was assembled by Kuroiwa along with the other eleven and boarded Galaxy Nauts Gou to go into space.

He also used his Keshin again to stop Hakuryuu's with Tenma's and Tsurugi's but failed again because of White Breath.
After Tenma's Majin Pegasus evolved into Majin Pegasus Arc and beat Hakuryuu's Keshin, he received the ball from Tenma. He summoned his Keshin again and used Harmonics, which was made into a shoot chain with Tsurugi's Death Drop and Tenma's Keshin shoot. It scored the first goal for Raimon.
After that, Shuu and Hakuryuu released their Keshin Fusion and he said to the others that Raimon should defend the goal with all the players but it failed. Then he released his Keshin again and created a Keshin Fusion with Majin Pegasus Arc and Kensei Lancelot, called Matei Gryphon.
