After being with the show since the very beginning, Takeshi is no longer on the show. In his place, a Sommelier named Dent is tagging around as the male sidekick of the group. He hands out advice and cooks the groups meals as well.
How do you feel about Dent? Is he too similar to Takeshi, or have the writers done a good job of making the characters different enough. Please explain why or why not.
