Because of this Komatsu holds her in high regard and considers her a true knife master. When he first met her he was unaware of her true gender and his behavior towards her was like that of a glee-filled fanatic and adored watching her work and chose to stay with her while Toriko went in search of Melk the First. During their time together he managed to find out her true gender (when he accidently ran into her while she was bathing, seeing her naked) and about her past which changed their relationship from one of a fan and his idol to one of deeper and mutual understanding, and he was even able to restore her confidence and remove her insecurities. It is even implied that they may have a crush on each other.

Despite this he still addresses her respectfully due to her status as warden and her strength in handling the prison.

Other ChefsEdit
