No one from P3 this time around since the team stayed in a dorm. Unless I should have included Ikutsuki as their representative?

Ryotaro Dojima, and it isn't even close. Lots easier to get along with, a certain late-game event notwithstanding, and doesn't treat the MC like dirt.

I mean, at least Dojima makes sure his MC is getting food, Sojiro could care less until like halfway through the game (hey if the game is going to make me sit through people telling me my MC is not eating well enough, then I'm assuming Sojiro is a pretty crappy guardian unless your name is Futaba).

That being said, yes Dojima does something really freaking dumb when it comes to the warning letter, but the rest of the time I feel bad for the guy.

Sojiro doesn't forget his development and act like a complete dumb ass simply for he sake of moving the plot. Better character development too.

Sojiro makes sure Joker is fed every morning and scolds him when he's late for school, acts out or puts his probation in jeopardy. That's doing his job, no matter how firm he is on the matter at that point in the story.

I vote Sojiro because of how much more room he has to grow over the course of the story. Both are excellent characters though and if I thought about this again tomorrow I might've voted the other way.

That's what I thought, but no Mona states "He doesn't eat well." It's very annoying cause I thought he was feeding him, but apparently he's not doing a good enough job.

In all honesty, his family is threatened, I'm not surprised he was acting dumb at that point cause he was probably freaking out. The only dumb thing is him leaving Nanako there and not bringing her with him or dropping her off at a friend's place, but then again the whole game we are shown how independent she is and how much he feels she can take care of herself. Not really throwing away his character as much as, he still had room to grow and the cards fell at the right times.

Dojima may've owned the pace, but let's be honest, our "caretaker" in p4 is Nanako.

I think I have Sojiro out-doing Dojima by a bit in my rankings, and I can't really explain why, since I'm not too sure myself.

Joker isn't a five year old kid, though. Sojiro is treating him like an adult, which is what he should be doing.
Not changing this sig until Gravity Rush 3 gets announced. Don't throw away an IP with so much potential, Sony!

Joker makes his own money and he can make curry (eventually), so he can feed himself 😎
I didn't liked Sojiro in the beginning, i liked him enough later on to vote Sojiro > Dojima

The dude is getting paid by MC's parents to take care of him, aka feed him. We never see MC get an allowance, so obvie the food money is going to Sojiro. It's not about him being 5 or 15 or 25, he's still relient on an adult because he's a kid.

First dungeon he can't actually leave to get a part time job (and Sojiro knows this), and apparently the MC is still skinny enough by the end of dungeon 2 that the teammates comment on it. Plus depending on how you play it might take awhile before you rank Sojiro up far enough to make curry yourself.

As much as I'm giving Sojiro crap on this, I'm more annoyed with Atlus trying to garner sympathy points for the MC when it really makes absolutely no sense for the MC to be that skinny/unhealthy if Sojiro is feeding him. But if it's true and he's not feeding the MC, or at least well enough (aka a balanced meal aka more than just curry), and we know he can make more than curry, then I guess he's gotta be docked points even tho it's so freaking OOC imo but whatever Atlus. >.>
