This episode helped confirm for me that we actually have a fairly good lead pair for this series. Kinji is a pretty rational guy who just doesn’t want to be a Butei despite his obvious talents for it. It was impressive that he actually used resources at his disposal to investigate Aria and get an understanding about her. Plus he actually has a reason for his issues with girls. If I had that Hysteria Mode there would probably be caution in my actions as well. Having that kind of personality isn’t bad, but feeling not in control of your actions would be a concern.
