Another fine example of why Wizard is doing so good. First I am liking that Shunpei wants to do more. He did help before, but never really helped Haruto yet. Even Rinko does some help and she could have almost got hurt in the last episode. Going on with that, Shunpei was on a roll today. His scenes were very good with helping out his sempai. I loved the scene where he is selling the sweets, it fits his personality and seeing him stuff food down a fake octopus' mouth was great. For me Shunpei never had a great moment, but this arc so far gave him some great parts and I can't wait for the second part to see what he does.
One more character or two is Tetsuya and his boss. for minor characters I can tell a lot about these two. Tetsuya wants to learn so he is working hard with his boss. In the summary I did say he is strict, but it's a much different way. It's not straight up yelling at Tetsuya, but telling him how he needs to do things. It's the helpful strictness and not the pure madness that some bosses can have. I love this viewpoint since the boss isn't a mean guy just a hard worker. Now I was expecting he was the Gate when he named the manju, Hope. It was kinda obvious, but it did get me thinking. So applause to the writing yet again. I even loved his speech about he wasn't mad at Tetsuya, but just mad that the delivery was a failure and losing the contract. So we got a good boss and a worker who both work very hard for their dreams.
