Layer Weight - Sou

Sou (双) is a Layer Weight released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatchinko Layer System. It debuted in Japan with Random Booster Vol. 17 on October 19, 2019.


Sou is shaped similarly to Metsu, but it only has two hexagons, one on each side. This makes it one of the lightest Layer Weights. Sou has very little use, given even Sen, Zan, and Retsu outclass it for usage as generic weights for different types. Sou does not offer anything that is better than any of the weights that are used more often. Sou is intended to provide a central weight distribution, however, this barely has any effect.


Sou is a rather light Layer Weight, rendering it almost completely outclassed by even Sen, Zan, or Retsu. This makes using Sou hard to justify, and renders it recommended for collection purposes among Gatckinko Layer Weights. However, the advent of heavier and better layers that don't use Layer Weights renders every Layer Weight outclassed in Standard. Therefore, Sou is recommended for collection purposes only.
