I liked the transcendent part in vol. 11 but here it just got caricatured and dragon ball z-ish. Also even if it was expected that Kazuo would make it to the last 5, i didn't liked how "invincible" he seems. I understand that he is to be seen as a robot (and i don't complain on the lack of feelings or words from him) but the cape and the invincibility to EVERYTHING (the guy survived a freaking explosion!) make him grotesque.
