Animenewsnetwork - I've never been entirely sure if I like Souma or if I just want to see Satou beat him to death with a blunt object. He has just a little too much fun pushing everyone else's buttons, but he also ends up giving a voice to my frustrations with the other characters. His job seems to be to jump in and shout, “Get on with it!” whenever a storyline starts to get bogged down by the awkward cluelessness of the people involved. Watching Souma and Kirio pester Takanashi in stereo is a lot of fun, but his appearance this week also means that Wagnaria!!3 is starting to drag its feet a bit.
