So I believe we left the military-Kusasha on the ground when the two Kusashas took Torg & Riff into space. And there was one "spare" in the tube on the space station.

Now it appears the two "replacement" Kusashas are driving a truck and fighting with Military Kusasha?

What does spare-tube Kusasha have in mind that required truck-driving Kusasha to go off-line?

There's a lot to unpack in those first three panels. It seems that after escaping from their rebirth facility, the two Kusari clones drove to the military base to join the third clone stationed there, at which point the driver took a "nap" so that Kusari could become active on the space station.

Now we're left with two questions:

  • Why are the two clones fighting at the military base?
  • What is the other clone doing on the station?

No spec here, of course—just identifying what has yet to be revealed. :)

I think it's interesting that whatever is going on at the military base, it's not being done by "Kusari" but openly by the clones. Not sure what that means yet but it seems significant.

It's also interesting that Kusari has two different "ninja" outfits: one is a more traditional black garb, and the other is a more elaborate costume with Kusari's signature hood. I wonder if there's any significance to choosing one over the other?

A lot going on in this strip!
I liked Gwynn and McKay's back and forth. I'd never go into that airlock though!

"He wants to have a nice dinner with you. He really does not trust you." Repeating it twice like that, fleshing it out the second time, makes it really funny. :torg:

Strongest Kusashi powered up again! The Kusashi falling asleep is not the same one as the one who fell asleep last time; that was ninja-dress Kusashi. I wonder how this is decided.

Well, the first time, the ninja-dress Kusashi was injured, so she wasn't the one driving. So it made sense for her to be the one unconscious. But otherwise, I am not sure. I guess it depends on the situation. I wonder if they all have the same abilities and personalities. It might not matter. If they all can fight the same, think the same way, act the same way. If they all share the same memories, then they all feel the same way, too.
I am very interested to see WHO they are attacking at the military installation (see my specs at SRC), and what the station Kusashi might be up to (again, SRC).
Go Kusashi! (I hope!)

Wait, is that FOUR Kusari's? I thought she could only have three at a time.
Is the one in the truck not actually active or something?

I think so. This happened once before. There can be three active, but others can exist.

I am wondering how they accomplished that, actually? I guess they have four bodies available, but only three can be active at a time. I am assuming there aren't any more bodies that are available beyond that, aside from the ones that were at the rebirth facility, which I am assuming won't be activated until one of the active Kusashi's dies.
Oh, I have another spec...*runs off*

Yes, there have been four "live" Kusashi, with one of them going dormant so only three are active.

See e.g. powering down and waking up.

Another minor but possibly significant detail: Kusari has chosen to remove her mask on the space station.

Is that a Burger Meister bag in the truck? She truly is a traitor!

Also, every time I see someone type "Kusashi" all I can think of is sushi. It's...incredibly distracting :P I assume a Kusashi Roll would contain rice, yellow-fin tuna, and death?
