Senpai Dylan reminds me of Tony Stark. He's a pleasant young man, kind hearted and incredibly intelligent...a big-picture thinker, but when he puts that suit on everything is amplified.
Dylan is the same way. We've known for years that he was a young man of exceptionally quality. That was before he earned his black belt at Camp Phoenix 2018. Almost immediately, like Tony Stark's transformation into Ironman, all of Senpai's admirable qualities were amplified. He is a clear example of being a black belt and not just wearing one.
For making a profound, immediate transition from the mudansha to the yudansha ranks, we award him with our Yudansha of the Year for 2018.
