Hishoko is best ko (子), right? Really. I always have a tendency to have unwieldy adoration for side characters.
Shokugeki no Soma unsurprisingly leapt straight into my ‘Watch Each Week’ list, with it’s solid execution and large amount of characters. Although, I feel that some characters may have been designed too much to be individual islands of personae — simplified and typified with no overlap or bleeding. I like it when any one single character can have a connection to the others, regardless of how faint it may be. It lends a bit more realism in an anime where you’d normally deign to think of it occurring. The show still did manage some of it. Souma, being the MC, is naturally the one who should have most of this property. Which brings me to the big reason I decided to write about Shokugeki no Soma this late, after the show has been over.
