Rentarō is highly confident in his cooking skills and takes pride in the fact that he was chosen to be a member of Central.[1][2] His confidence was further shown when he personally informed a Research Society head about the purge so that he could take the chance to crush them.[3] He is also easily irritated when underclassmen disrespect him.[4][5][6] He is shown to be violent when he prepares to fight a couple of underclassmen, contrary to the fact that he is calm and silent while concentrating on his cooking.[7][8]

History Edit

Rentarō enrolled into Tōtsuki Culinary Academy as part of the 91st Generation. As a second year student, Rentarō completed the Tōtsuki Friendship and Rapport Training Camp and Stagiaire events in his first year.

Rentarō's heating specialization

  • Heating — Rentarō's specialty lies in the different heating methods in cooking. As noted by Mea Yanai, his mastery in low temperature cooking is his greatest strength. He has a wide variety of cooking appliance knowledge so he can use his heating techniques to the highest degrees, even using rather difficult appliances such as the immersion circulator and the steam convection oven.
