Everyone needs a Sayaka Kanamori. Everyone. From couples to best friends. From bosses to employees. To businesses both massive and tiny. We all need a Sayaka Kanamori. Sayaka’s fellow cast mates Midori and Tsubame; the former who’s an anime fanatic and aspiring animator and the latter; a teenage socialite/fashion model who seeks to escape from the limelight through her artistic skills, both need her.
Why you may ask? It’s the same reason why your grounded friend has to anchor you when you start to daydream or steer away from a placed goal. Sayaka brings guidance to those without guides. She provides realism to friends who’re (too) fantasy-like in their thoughts. While everyone else is crying over a difficult situation, she can shut her mind off and tackle the problem head on with laser focus. We all need somebody who process the ability to focus on the bigger picture without distractions.
She doesn’t allow herself to be emotionally attracted to things easily. It doesn’t means that she’s callous, cynical, and cold. In fact, she’s quite the opposite. She truly cares about her friends’ passion for the arts. She wants to see them become successful. However, due to her high levels of emotional intelligence combined with her cool, calm nature, it only appears that seems callous, cynical, and cold. And that’s okay; somebody who’s always calm in any situation is always welcome in a group.
Finally, Sayaka pushes her crew to strive for both excellence and self-betterment. She quickly reprimand Midori and Tsubame after the artist duo were beating themselves up over minor issues (such as Tsubame’s parents forbidding her to join an anime club and Midori believing her art isn’t good enough). She reminded them both that they had youth on their side and the power to take chances/risks. We all need somebody like that who can bring us back to reality and build us up when we speak lowly about our skills.
Without Sayaka, there wouldn’t be an Eizouken…even if some of her intentions to build Eizouken revolved around gaining money.
