The 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn ElectionEdit

Main article: Tōtsuki Autumn Election Arc

Shigenoshin was invited as one of the judges for the Block A in the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election. He, along with Natsume Sendawara, Makito Minatozaka and two other judges, observed the participants creating their curry dishes. When the judging began, Shigenoshin chuckled at Natsume's harsh words as each student bought up their dishes and received low scores. Shigenoshin himself judged the first 10 dishes harshly.

When Ryō Kurokiba served his curry, Shigenoshin was the first to comment on the beauty of the dish. Like the other judges, he was impressed by the flavor, calling it a splendid lobster curry.
