I enjoy seeing Kuga kick butt, especially for Osamu’s sake.
I can’t wait for the day where Osamu can realize he’s being insulted/humiliated and take care of things like that on his own. Still, it did give him the chance to clear things up:
Don’t make a bragging pose when you’re actually admitting how much you suck!
Replica also doesn’t mess around when it comes to the ones he cares for. It was wise of him to use Kuga’s side effect to test Commander Kido. Even so, I’m wary of him, especially since he said “As long as he follows Border’s Regulations.” Somehow I think he’ll use that to his advantage.
