Hey, while we’re at it, I have a slight issue with this?
Maybe this is an entirely semantic issue and I’m just being picky, but I don’t think Shou is necessarily “bad at being calm” like it says in his profile.
To me, someone like Serizawa is bad at staying calm, but Shou? Shou seems to be usually very self assured and fairly good at reigning in his emotions.
I mean… he looks pretty calm for somebody who’s got a sword at his neck????
I mean I guess it could refer to his generally energetic personality, but… Idk
Anyway… judging by the interesting decisions this boy makes over the course of the story, I think a better translation might have been something like “rash” or “impulsive”. Shou makes a number of risky decisions, seemingly on the fly or out of desperation (his crazy plans to provoke Mob’s emotions, trying to take on Touichiro by himself, also his freaking catchphrase “attack is the best defense”…) Anyway I don’t speak Japanese lol I might be wrong here
I’m not critiquing anybody, the translator least of all… but I feel like perhaps the fandom’s view of him has been a little distorted by this particular character profile…. maybe that’s just my interpretation though. Hmm.
