Kuraki ecstasy (anime)

Shigeno expresses delight after tasting Ikumi's dish

Shigeno appeared as one of the three judges in the Shokugeki between Sōma Yukihira and Ikumi Mito. She alongside the other two judges, Yoshiki Bitō and Katsunori Okamoto, was first presented by Ikumi with her A5 Japanese Beef Roti Don, which garnered universal praise. Shigeno further cited that she liked the beef carving which resembles a flower and expressed her delight when she took a bite from her dish. Sōma presented next with his Chaliapin Steak Don. Though the judges initially did not want to eat it in the aftermath of Ikumi's dish, after taking a bite, the judges could not stop eating the dish, even saying that the dish overall was better than Ikumi's. Shigeno praised the dish for being very well-arranged and for having a deep flavor, demanding for seconds. She also told Ikumi that while her dish was exquisite, Sōma's dish made her to craved for more. In a decisive and one-sided result, Sōma won the match.[4]
