Tokieda explains Kitora's past and how she rose to B-Rank as a Gunner, but had to switch to Scorpion since her Trion did not allow for bullet-fighting style. Kitora refuses, stating that it would be impossible for Osamu to compete with the top B-Rank agents even if she did train him. Kitora asks Osamu his goal, and he tells her that he wanted to be chosen for the Expedition Force by the end of the season. She dismisses it as impossible, stating that he would need another 2 years until he could even come close to achieving that. Osamu asks if she has a better idea, but she refuses to tell him, stating that he was taking being treated kindly for granted. She uses Ninomiya bowing down to Izumi to become his student despite being the No. 1 Shooter as an example to prove her point. Osamu then bows to Kitora, virtually begging for her help. Kitora agrees.
Kitora teaches him to use Spider to set up traps to trip or block enemies. It could be set up so that only teammates would easily see it. However, it could be noticed easily by experienced fighters and the trap's purpose would be lost. At the same time though, by putting a trap, it would automatically divert the opponent's attention towards it, which could help a pro-fighter like Yūma fight. Osamu realizes the reason this strategy is so effective is that it does not require him to directly fight. With this newfound piece of training, Osamu admits that he is somewhat excited about the upcoming Rank Battle.
