First of all, the rulings for G Guardian is up! We can finally catch a first glimpse of that random power first pulled out of Tokoha’s butt during her fight with Misaki! Okay that sounds wrong, but you get what I mean.
Second of all, I would like to send Leon straight to 6 damage because he did not tell me that the English translation was up before I finished translating it myself (I kid). So expect to see differences from the official ruling here and there.
