Final Verdict

Shoko Ieiri
What were you saying?

Well, the end is here now, so I would like to leave some final remarks on Shoko Ieiri. I think Shoko Ieiri was an important asset and teammate. One of the few people who could actually do the reverse cursed technique. It is just purely amazing.

No one among the fandom can hate her. She is one of the most logical characters to be included in this series. Everyone knows how useful she is. A beautiful human with an intelligent mind and good clothing sense, sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

She has never made a decision that would ultimately hurt anyone. Shoko Ieiri has always worked for the betterment of everyone. This was the biggest plus point of having her in your team. She would always be by your side.

Also, her name translates to, ‘family, enter, nitrate, and child’. Weird, right?
