Whenever confronted by a problem, his “hero complex” is the one to dictate his actions. Knowing that he is primary source of dependence for Setsuko after losing their mom, he takes up the responsibility in taking care of her.

When a person works hard to chase their dreams, it is often with the underlying goal to get to a place in their life where they truly feel they have made a home for themselves.
